The Great Adamos had an easy style with our grandchildren, 3- 9 years old, who helped with some of the tricks. Later he did table magic for the adults.

Holiday Club and Pre-School

I am used to performing for pre-school, after-school and holiday club audiences and can recommend a few packages that will be suitable for the wide range of ages: 1-HOUR MAGIC PACKAGE: this comprises a 40-minute interactive magic show followed by a magic workshop (where I teach some basic tricks). The workshops are best with children above the age of 6 but can be enjoyed by younger children. The magical routines in the show are all child-friendly and are also enjoyed by the adults too! There’s lots of fun, silliness, magic, and a visit from Terry the cheeky puppet bird. I am fully self-contained for the duration and require no preparation on your behalf except for a small performance area and room for the children to sit while the show takes place. I am fully DBS checked and have £10 million insurance. A responsible adult (other than myself!) will still need to be present.

Older Kids and Teenagers Parlour Show

I have a great package for OLDER CHILDREN (9 YEARS +) For older children, I recommend a parlour show (a more formal presentation to a small audience which was popular in Victorian times). It's a bit more like a mini stage performance but with close-up magic. This will require a dedicated area with guests gathered around. The show is best presented as a performance of up to 40 minutes… too much magic in one go can be self-defeating. As an ex-teacher of over 20 years and my experience of entertaining for children and adults, I know this makes marvellous entertainment without being patronising to the children. I then do a fun balloon modelling session where I can teach the children how to make a balloon hat or animal. Balloon modelling is fun for all ages! Alternatively, I deliver a short workshop on basic magical sleights used by professional magicians (boys like this one!). I am fully DBS checked and have £10 million insurance. A responsible adult (other than myself!) will still need to be present.

It’s fun for everyone and stress-free experience for the parents! 1-HOUR PACKAGE: a 40-minute interactive magic show followed by balloon modelling or party games. The routines are all child-friendly and are enjoyed by the adults too! There’s lots of fun, silliness, magic, and a visit from Terry the cheeky puppet bird. I am fully self-contained for the duration and require no preparation on your behalf except for a small performance area and room for the children to sit while the show takes place. The games are played to music; the balloon option gives every child the chance to have a balloon model of choice made for them. 2-HOUR PACKAGE: includes circus games, party games and balloons. I am fully DBS checked and have £10 million insurance. A responsible adult (other than myself!) will still need to be present.

School Magic Showcase + Optional Workshops

I offer a brilliant stage show for primary schools. It is a 40-minute show based around the theme 'Do you believe in magic'… And the ‘children’s magic’ is also entertaining for grown-ups too! I am fully self-contained, so great for the teachers to relax and enjoy the show + the children having fun. It won't be the normal show I do for kid's parties! I make it truly magical. Objects disappear, reappear, and have a life of their own. It’s great fun too and will have everyone laughing! I even finish with a floating table (powered by 'fairy magic'... but you have to believe!). I can finish with a Magic Masterclass where I teach some simple magical sleights to learn a routine of their own. This can be done as a whole, or in classes. I can provide enhanced DBS, PLI and PAT certificates (I bring a small PA and radio headset). I WAS A TEACHER FOR OVER 20 YEARS BEFORE BECOMING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN SO SCHOOL SITUATIONS ARE ‘NORMAL’ FOR ME.

Care Home Magician - 40 Minute Show or Strolling Magic

A professional magician with lots of experience entertaining in residential care homes for the elderly The following are examples of the type of performances I can be booked for and are tried and tested. ways to incorporate magic into your regular entertainment: • A PARLOUR SHOW; presented to the residents (and guests if required) which is a small stage type performance in a lounge where your customers are seated to watch the entertainment. This lasts about 40 minutes and is interactive which involves as many as possible in the show. The routines are humorous, baffling and produce gasps of amazement… even the staff can get involved! I have performed this type of entertainment for such events as Christmas parties, St George’s Day and for charity days in care homes. • STROLLING AND TABLE MAGIC; A more informal type of entertainment where I move between individual/groups of residents performing a short close-up routine in turn. This works well for general gatherings and parties. As a rule of thumb, it will need about an hour per 40 residents. If appropriate, every now and then I will perform a short routine to the whole gathering. I can add balloon modelling to the above as a light-hearted end to a session… this always goes down very well. I am self-employed and can provide PLI and a risk assessment. Magically yours Adam (The Great Adamos)

Adult Parlour Show

A magical parlour show is a more formal presentation to a small audience of up to 30 guests which was popular in Victorian times… a bit more like a mini stage performance but with close-up magic. This is great for smaller gatherings and can be an alternative to strolling close-up; it will require a dedicated area with guests gathered around. The show is best presented for a duration of up to 40 minutes. Extra time can be allocated to strolling close-up after or before the main show. The show is fully interactive and gets everyone involved. It's a great way to add something different to your event. If you send me a picture of the birthday 'boy/girl' I will get it printed onto the backs of playing cards as give-away mementoes and a fun ending to a particular card routine. Please contact me should you wish to know any more information or advice. It is my aim to provide quality magical entertainment for any situation.

Corporate Dinner - Magician - During & Either Side of Dinner

Many thanks for your interest in magical entertainment for a corporate event. As a professional magician, corporate/office close-up magical entertainment is an area which I understand very well, whether it is an event where valued staff can enjoy comedy magic and mind-reading or a more formal event where clients may need to be impressed with the quality of entertainment on offer. I ensure the entertainment is light-hearted, professional and reflects well on the host. My philosophy is to be polite, friendly and to perform much of the magic ‘in the hands’ which makes the effects personal and memorable to those involved. If you have guests who require particular attention (such as loyal customers) I can incorporate items specific to your company should it be required. Either way, I will research the company and try to add some relevant items or patter into the routines… I feel this makes the entertainment more bespoke for the event. If a meal is involved I can provide close-up table magic before, after and in-between courses and if you would like a short cabaret type floor show after the meal I am happy to oblige. I’m flexible whatever the format and will certainly make the event memorable and one less thing to worry about. I do hope you choose to book me as these events are such fun for all involved. Do not hesitate to ask if you require any more information, advice, or to make a booking. Good luck with the preparations. Magically yours Adam (The Great Adamos)

Adult Party Magician

My close-up magic involves a variety of good-humoured and thought-provoking routines using objects such as cards, coins, and rope; the magic happens right in front of your guests' faces and sometimes in their hands. As a professional magician, you can be assured of the quality of entertainment I offer… after all, I rely on it to get repeat bookings and recommendations! At most parties, I work as a strolling magician visiting small groups of guests throughout the occasion. If the party is at a private residence you can opt to have a ‘Room of Mystery’ where I set up and perform a short set of magical routines (10/15-minutes) in a spare room where guests drop-in at their leisure. I cater to children as well. Just give me the numbers and age-range and I will bring extra to keep them entertained; I always have balloons with me so younger children can have a few models made for them to take home. My one-off fee is not time-dependent. I stay for as long as necessary (without overstaying my welcome!) and won’t ‘disappear’ until the job is done. With most smaller gatherings (less than 40) I would recommend around 1.5 hours of entertainment. Larger parties will need between 2 and 3 hours depending on numbers.
