Why hire a close-up magician?

Close-up magicians perform magic for small groups of guests either as they mingle with drinks and canapes or are seated at tables. The power of professionally-presented close-up magic is indisputable, as it happens inches away from the audience's very own eyes and is unmatched as an icebreaker to help get people interacting.

Christopher performs with a variety of objects including cards and items borrowed from the audience. It’s flexi-time, depending on your needs, the number of guests, and the length of your event - so close-up magicians can work around the other things you have planned for the event. It's great entertainment at weddings, corporate functions and private parties in homes.

If alll these things are great reasons for convincing you to hire close-up magicians, then why is Christopher the magician for you? Check out what others have said and visit our Home page to watch his video.

'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.’
- E. Stanbury
‘Development Executive for The Santon Group’ (Property Development)

"Christopher is a fantastic entertainer. We loved the way he mingled with the guests but was also very discreet and professional. His magic was amazing and was enjoyed by all. Initially I wasn’t sure whether having a magician would be ‘cheesy’ but Christopher's magic and performance style are pure class and very sophisticated and I would recommend anyone organizing a special event to have him perform. Absolutely brilliant."
