So amazing! The best part of the day. Scoop magic was perfect at involving every single guest and they were all amazed. My only regret is that we did book him for extra hour. Thank you so much you really made our guests day x

Scoop really added the extra ‘wow’ factor to our wedding reception. Our guests were amazed by the tricks he showed them and kept telling us about them throughout the night! We would both highly recommend.

Paul was absolutely fantastic on our wedding day, I couldn't of asked for a more professional and personal magician. Paul's enthusiasm and engagement with our guests was outstanding. I personally think that Paul is undervaluing himself as for value for money there is no comparison. Guests at our wedding couldn't stop talking about Paul for long after he left our venue. Thank you Paul for making our day perfect.

Brilliant, everyone loved Paul. Keeping a large group of 18 year olds enthralled is a tough assignment and he managed them beautifully. We will be asking him to come back!



  • Do you do open-air acts?


  • How long is the act?

    My cabaret show is 45 minutes long but can be shortened or lengthened to an hour if necessary. I usually do two hours of close up magic visiting different groups of people throughout that time but this can be adjusted depending on the number of people.

  • What type of magic do you perform

    Close up (table hopping or mix and mingle), cabaret or stage. All performances are suitable for families or adults.

  • Will your magic suit my event?

    I have experience performing at a wide variety of events so whatever your event I'm sure we will be able to come up with something suitable.

  • How many people will you perform for?

    Any amount but the performance type and length will depend upon the number of people.
