Many 5 star reviews on facebook and elsewhere online and comments such as – “Booked Ray for my daughter’s wedding. Ray was very professional and had excellent communication with regards to booking him for our venue. Both children and adults loved the show. Interacted with adults as well as the children. Lots of guests commented how good he was. Really was excellent value for money. Would 100% recommend Ray to anyone wanting a Magician. Job well done. Thank you so much” – Kerry S, Beverley.
“first class entertainment in the form of an excellent magician, Ray Burrell, who in my humble opinion was of TV’s Dynamo standard”. – Janet B, Bishop Burton.
“Can't find anything to fault with Ray's entertainment. The children loved him and so did the parents. He kept 20+ young children totally entertained for over 2 hours all we had to do was stand back and let him get on with it!! Would certainly use again.” – Sue E, Goole
“Ray was brilliant he came for my 9 year old little boys birthday party, it was only small group and he involved each of them and they loved it. Will definitely book again” – Victoria G, Donnington-On-Bain

I booked Ray as a surprise for my husband on our wedding day back in August - the man is definitely magic! He wowed all of our guests, of every age range. We've got a couple of mementos from Ray's act too which still boggle my mind when I look at them! Ray was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, very friendly and professional and I'm so glad we booked Ray! Recommend 100% for parties of all ages!

I very much appreciated Ray attending our wedding venue. It was a very small wedding reception and entirely not his fault, but I think he invaded people's personal space a bit when they were trying to chat to other guests. I know he was trying to give value for money and that was his job, so please do not take this comment to heart. In a larger group of people I think this would have worked better.

As a children's entertainer I can provide a package of fun, games, a magic show, and balloon models for all the children. The games I do are non-elimination games (so none of the children feel upset because they have "lost") with prizes, and team games, followed by a bright and colourful magic show with lots of audience involvement. I provide all the prizes. The children take part in many of the magic tricks including with Chico the Monkey (puppet not a real monkey), and after the magic show balloon models for all children attending - dogs, giraffes, rabbits, swans, flowers, swords, hats, hearts, frogs, etc and magicians assistant stickers. If there is a Birthday Child, they can help create a painting magically which whey will get to keep, as well as a high quality magicians assistant certificate.
