Tom Brooks - The Prat in the Hat
If you're looking to make any event that little bit more memorable, consider Tom Brooks (The Prat in the Hat) as your entertainment! Are you sick of seeing the same old card tricks, with the same old cheesey lines? So's he.
When you book Tom for an event, you can be certain that he will entertain, amaze and get people talking. Not only has he worked for two years as one of the resident magicians in both Hamleys and Harrods of London, but he also works as a teacher of magic and consultant within the industry.
- Do you do open-air acts?Absolutely! The only limitation is that I do not perform surrounded, or in an amphitheatre setting (for obvious reasons).
- How long is the act?Anything from a 15 minute spot in a cabaret to 5+hours walk around at a festival. Honestly, it all depends on the event you are hosting!
- What type of magic do you performClose up, walk around, stage, parlour, you name it! Having performed magic for over 15 years, I perform a lot of different styles!
- Will your magic suit my event?Whilst I cannot say for certain that style will suit every event, the only real way to know is to ask! Get in touch for a no-obligation quote and see if it os what you want for yourself.
- How many people will you perform for?A group as small as 10, or a crowd as large as 1,000, no audience is too much or too little!
As a performer, Tom offers a wide array of bespoke magical services, tailored to your event itself!
Not only is Tom an established close up entertaininer, having honed his craft in clubs, bars, restaurants and venues accross the country, but he also performs on stages, amazing crowds with his unique style of stage performance.
As well as traditional magic, Tom also offers a few specialist packages:
For groups of children, over the age of 6, Tom runs Workshop Parties. Not only will the children all get to watch 30 minutes of magic and jokes, but the children can all learn to perform 2-3 trucks of their own, under Tom's expert guidance. Each child will go home with all the props they need to re-create some incredible illusions, used by real, professional magicians.
"Tom is to halloween, what Santa is to Christmas"
