Why hire Christopher as your magician?

You have a choice of close-up magicians in London and the UK, so to see if Christopher is the right one for you, take a look at these testimonials that have come in writing following his performances from clients and media. Below are a collection of testimonials about Christopher's work when hired for corporate entertainment, as a wedding magician, and as a private hire magician at parties.

"I recently booked Christopher to perform his close up magic at our business party and everyone was blown away.  We’ve had magicians before but Christopher was a cut above, both in the quality and execution of his tricks as well as the rapport that he built with the guests.  He got everyone involved in what he was doing but without ever being overbearing.  Everyone was suitably impressed and I would not hesitate to book him again’

Mr. E. Stanbury, Corporate party booking for The Santon Group


"I wanted to say a huge thank you for last night, you were amazing. I have had people ask me about you who weren't even there. It's so weird when you see it happening right before your eyes but you still can't take it in. You will be a very hard act to follow (for our event) next year, as the bar is now set very high."

Mrs. A. Jones, Blackheath Cricket Club, After Christopher's Cabaret Magician Show


"Thank you so much for such a fabulous evening at the Gherkin for our parents 40th wedding anniversary, you really made the night extra special! People have been talking about it ever since and practically every thank you card mentioned your amazing performances. My parents thoroughly enjoyed the oranges performance as the Grand Finale …. it really was amazing!"

A. Tanelian, private client


'Every single one of our guests told us how impressed they were with your magic. ... It truly made a great difference to our day and we are so glad that we chose the perfect magician!'
T. & A. Steinreich, chose Christopher as their wedding close-up magician
