Close-up magicians in London:

Christopher's work amongst London close-up magicians is known as much for the strong impression his magic makes on the audience as for his friendly and engaging presentation style. Close-up magicians mix with your group, whether seated at tables or mingling with drinks, performing inches from your audience's eyes and often involving the audience directly as they help make the magic happen. Sometimes close-up magic is used as a warm-up during a reception to break the ice, culminating in an after-dinner magic show or an act by UK illusionists.

"The entertainment you provided helped set the scene for the evening and certainly got people, many of whom were meeting for the first time, talking and interacting with each other. Your performance with the card and the balloon is definitely the piece that had people talking most – I was still being asked on the second day if I knew how you had done it! Your performance and interaction with our people was exactly right for our event and helped give the overall event a greater kudos and enjoyment for all those that attended."

Invited Christopher to be the close-up magician at their wedding

"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."
