Many Thanks for keeping all our guests entertained at the King Arthur on Friday Evening, everyone thoroughly enjoyed your amazing skills - even the unbelievers couldn't quite work out how you were managing some of them :-), sorry we didn't have much time to have a chat with you, but we appreciate what you did, thanks for contributing to an incredible day!

Best wishes

Sally and David"

"Many thanks to Mark for making our evening so enjoyable. Mark performed for us at our annual company party. His incredible magic skills and witty humour around the tables kept us all enchanted, amazed and astonished.

Would (and have) recommended him to others."

Once again Mark has amazed us all. Following his success at our sister Company's annual works party we re-booked him and were not disappointed. Mark was the talk of the night ! His skills as a close up magician are brilliant and I would thoroughly recommend him to others.

  • Do you do open-air acts?
    As long as it's not raining, I'll perform anywhere.
  • How long is the act?
    For weddings I normally arrive in the afternoon and perform before the wedding meal, then again in the evening. Usually around 4-5 hours entertainment in total For corporate events, I arrive to entertain as guests arrive, then during the evening around the tables. Normally 3-4 hours For a stand-up show, I normally entertain at close up, before performing a show. The stand-up show can be anything from 30 mins to 1 and half hours.
