I had great fun last Saturday afternoon entertaining for the Shearing family at their wedding reception held at Old Luxters Barn in Oxfordshire. It is a stunning venue and I was delighted to be invited by the bride to perform magic as a surprise for her new husband and their children. I have met all the family several times over the years performing both close-up and children’s magic for them.
Vicki very kindly sent this thank you email at the beginning of the week: (more…)
While Prince William and Kate Middleton made their vows, I was delighted to be performing at a Royal Wedding Celebration in Calcot, Reading. I’m sure that David Cameron would have been proud to see the community coming together as a ‘big society’ to celebrate. I left the party in full swing and having received the following email from John Parry, the event organiser, I can only assume it continued all day and late into the evening – Wonderful!
‘Also, I just wanted to say thanks again. I think you did an excellent job and went down a storm. In the club in the evening people were saying how good you were.’ (more…)

June through to September is typically prime wedding season but I have recently entertained at some stunning venues across the Home Counties, ideal for winter weddings: Taplow House, Wokefield Park and Sunningdale Park in Berkshire; Tylney Hall and The New Mill at Eversley in Hampshire; Great Fosters, Egham, Surrey and The Compleat Angler, Marlow, Buckinghamshire. Each venue offers the indoor space and versatility for the close-up magician to perform both table magic and mix and mingle.
However my favourite venue is Warbrook House in Eversley, Hampshire. I have performed at several seasonal weddings there over the years and also chose to get married there myself in December 2004.
Many congratulations to all those couples whose winter weddings I entertained at from October 2010 to February 2011. If you are planning a Winter Wedding, please feel free to contact me to discuss how I can help

I am often asked this question and usually respond with a simple Yes and, if encouraged, a subsequent explanation about how I came to be a Professional Full-time Comedy-Magician and member of The Magic Circle.
The brief version is as follows:
My apprenticeship was working for Haven Holidays as part of the Entertainments team for 5 years, followed by a further 5 years in various corporate sales guises for three IT companies. I then returned to entertainment and started working for myself as a full-time magician and entertainer 9 years ago. (more…)
Many congratulations to Billie and Trevor who were married last week at The Mill House, Swallowfield. I was delighted to perform my family comedy-magic caberet show to all of the guests; Bride and Groom, Grandparents and Children alike and it got me thinking…
Whilst the strolling and close-up magic I show to adults is complex and intricate and can prove difficult for children to follow let alone comprehend, it is important to me that the magic I show to children still creates that same sense of awe and wonder in the adults watching.
August has been a busy month so far. Wedding season is in full swing which means table magic, strolling magic and even the occasional pre-wedding hen-party! Cantley House Hotel, Wokingham; The Mill House, Swallowfield; Rivervale Barn, Yateley; Wokefield Park, Mortimer; Lains Barn, Wantage and this weekend The Manor Hotel, Newbury to name but a few.
Many congratulations to all the happy couples.
