Services From Matthew Keys in Edinburgh
I am a professional magician, working across the UK and Europe. Based in Edinburgh, Scotland. A member of the prestigious Magic Circle.
I provide fantastic magic that your guests will remember long after the performance. With a light-hearted comic style and a love of the ridiculous. My show is full of surprises, no way moments and laughter.
I predominantly perform close up magic at events, mixing and mingling with guests. I also have a 40 minute cabaret and stage act that can play for a few hundred or more people.
I have been employed and trusted by the Royal Navy, The Fringe Society, Glen Turret Whisky and many other private and corporate clients to provide entertainment at parties, launch events and staff celebrations.

Wilf was brilliant. He entertained us very well during our big family party for my husbands 70th birthday. He was amusing as well as great at his magic performance.

"Wilf performed his magic show at my son’s 21st birthday dinner. It was a small family affair with ages ranging from 17 to 89 years. He very quickly engaged and intrigued the audience who talked about the show well into the evening.
I have no hesitation in recommending Wilf and will definitely book him for future events."

Wilf came to my daughters communion & was a great success. Everyone loved him as he was very very good at all the tricks, he was also very good with all the children & i wouldnt hesitate to book him again.

"We had a sales event at work which was circus themed and to make things a little different we decided to get a magician in at last minute (72 hours before the event)
Wilf was personable, friendly and had a quick wit about him which made the teams engage with him well. He spent 3 hours entertaining over 300 staff members which was well beyond what I could have hoped for when he was booked.
All round top guy and highly recommended. When it comes to getting an entertainer for a party in future Wilf will be at the top of my list."
How many people will you perform for?
It very much depends on the venue and the type of performance you require. I can perform on stage for thousands, or at a table for a few people. The latter requires more time at a large event. Ask me for more information and I can provide options and accurate quotes for your event.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance?
Yes. I am insured by Equity, the actors union, up to £10,000,000.
What age range do you work with?
I work with all age ranges, however my preference is for entertaining adults. I don't perform a traditional children's magic act. Best to book a performer who specialises in this type of entertainment.
Can you work outdoors?
Yes. I've spent many years working as a street performer and am completely at home in the great outdoors. I also have routines that are by their nature, water and wind proof!
