Close up Magic
As a Close up performer and entertainer Gary is in great demand. For the past 17 years he has proved his ability to entertain even the most demanding of audiences, working as he does for “The British Armed Forces” both here in the UK and overseas.
Gary is resident Close up Magician for Hilton Hotels in the Midlands & official supplier of Magic to Lexus UK and the British Armed forces.
With an easy style and pleasing personality he is the choice of the Military whenever & wherever they need entertaining. Using a subtle mix of skills and sleight of mouth you will be amazed at the incredible Magic that you see, right under your nose.
As a corporate Magician Gary is able to promote company products using his skills as a Magician. At one such event at the “NEC” & performing 9 shows a day Gary drew huge crowds to the “Motaquip” stand at the motorshow. So many people wanted to see his Magic that the aisle was at a standstill for the duration of each performance. This type of entertainment is ideal for corporate events, and by incorporating your product into his show gives the whole thing a sense of completeness.
Children's Magic shows.
For the past 32 years Gary has entertained Children. Not only as a Magician but as an all round entertainer.
He spent 3 years working for Ladbroke Holidays as the Children’s entertainment manager. This involved organising a complete 7 month summer season package, every year, for children aged from 4 to 14. As you will appreciate this is not an easy task. Ask any parent who has tried to keep just one or two children entertained for an hour or so! It was whilst working Summer seasons that Gary gained invaluable experience & knowledge in the art of children’s entertainment.
In those immortal words “Its not what you do, it’s the way that you do it”.
As parents we all worry about our children and their safety. Unfortunately we now live in a strange world full of strange people. Gary has taken the lead amongst professional entertainers and has acquired a full DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) disclosure. Your children are therefore in safe hands and as such can be left unattended should the need arise.
Gary has also been a full Equity member for the past 20 years and as such enjoys the privilege of Public liability insurance to the value of £ 10,000.000.

Gary simply blew our socks off as a Close Up Magician, we even reviewed the footage in camera and still had no idea how he had accomplished the effects.
