"We asked Jack to attend our works leaving do on 31st August. None of us have ever seen hypnotism in person and thought it would be something different. The morning of the leaving do I started worrying that it was going to be a bit too serious for a rowdy group of drunken work colleagues but I was completely wrong. Jack came into the room and wasn't just an amazing magician but was also hilarious and had us laughing from the minute he walked in the room. The mind reading was incredible, he managed to talk about my dog I had when I was 5 years old who passed 4 years ago completely out of no where and managed to tell me her name, what sort of dog she was ect. One of our colleagues was forced to telling us his wife was 8 weeks pregnant that night because Jack called him a 'family man' and mentioned that something exciting was ahead of himself and his wife. One of the quietest boys in our office was hypnotized to call everyone Steve and dance like Michael Jackson that just left us in tears of laughter. It was easily the best entertainment we could have had and I can't wait to ask Jack to come entertain my family and friends in Summer 17. Thank you, Jack!"

"Jack was magic just like the label said. He mixed in with all the guests, even the most sceptical were taken in and won over by his charm and genius."

"Jack did a fantastic show for our students as part of their Speak English Week. His set included lots of fun magic that could be enjoyed by teachers and students alike. The atmosphere during and after the event was great to see as many were amazed by how the magic worked. The workshop afterwards involved a small group of students being taught some close up table top magic. We would thoroughly recommend Jack and will be asking him back in the near future!"

"Thank you Jack, you got our Golden Wedding celebration off to a superb start! Really nice person, great act, very relaxed manner, didn't stop until everyone had been 'tricked' Jack clearly loves his work and is real value for money. All the family and friends that we've spoken to since have said how much they enjoyed his magic and his humor. I have no hesitation in recommending him and truly hope that we have another opportunity for him to share his talents with us again in the future."

"Jack was perfect for our event - my daughter's 18th party (in the middle of exams) was a relatively low key affair because of the timing therefore we wanted someone who would liven things up whilst entertaining the girls. Jack was great and everyone warmed to him immediately. He pitched the tricks perfectly and kept everyone enthralled - we wouldn't hesitate in recommending him."

"We were lucky enough to have Jack entertain us and our guests at a recent wedding reception. Amazing! He was a huge hit with everyone and people were still talking about it several days after. He made the evening magical (in every way) and everything went smoothly and was perfect from start to finish, from initial contact with Jack and booking, through to the night itself. A very talented man and a truly nice guy too, thank you Jack :-)"

"Jack performed during our wedding reception on 10/3/18, and we couldn't be more impressed with his work! He was warm and professional from the moment he arrived and quickly got started with close up magic at the tables. You always knew where he was in the room as every so often you would hear "oooo", "ahhhh", laughter and then bursts of applause. We are fans of magic and have seen magicians perform at the magic circle in London so Jack had a lot to live up to, and he did so with flair. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jack for any event and we thank him for being an important part of such a special day for us. Daniela and Chris"

How long is the act?
Again this completely depends on the number of guests you have, the average booking is 2 hours for events such as weddings and parties.
How many people will you perform for?
Typically Jack says 50-60 people per hour is about the maximum you can realistically expect. He doesn't want to just introduce himself show you one trick and then move onto the next group as he is a very personable person, often found getting to know you a little bit before performing. If timings are tight and you have more than the mentioned amount of guests then ask Jack for his advice, he'd be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
