Paul was an absolute delight from the moment he arrived. He very discreetly mingled with our party guests, who were amazed and astounded by his magic tricks. He worked tirelessly all night and was the talking point of our party. Additionally, he kindly did a little bespoke magic show for the 3 children we had attending. Paul was a gentleman and a true professional. I still don't get how he made 10 cards become 7 right in-front of my eyes....?? Many thanks Paul and I would recommend you to anyone...

Paul provides excellent entertainment. His magic is spellbinding and you will experience things you thought were impossible. He has a great manner too, with jokes and warmth so that everybody feels included and at ease, whatever their age.

"Fantastic !! All our guests were asking ""where did you find him??"".He was entertaining, funny and most of all the magic was brilliant - can't praise him enough. Our party was for my daughters 18 - but had a mix of teenagers and family alike - and everyone and I mean everyone thought he was brilliant."

Paul is a great magician whose tricks and illusions make everyone smile and wonder how on earth he did them. His close up table magic is amazing and you can never work out how he can fool you right under your very nose, but he does it with great skill! He is able to make both adults and children feel at ease and entertained which we found at our recent Ruby Wedding Anniversary Celebration. All of our guests made very positive and nice comments about Paul's Magic skills, which was pleasing for us to hear. He added that extra special something to the event which for us as the hosts, was a big plus! Thank you Paul!

"Very impactive at my 60th birthday party....got everyone involved...even the most sceptical !
Coming in costume really made people wonder what was going on...especially as I had told no one he was coming: the look on some people's faces !!
