Nothing can beat the feeling of seeing happy people, fully engaged and having a brilliant time, whatever the type of event. Especially if you’re the organiser.


“Everybody was raving about you all evening!”


This isn’t only about magic. I’ve performed for many years, at everything from small parties to first-class dinner events, from crowded trade shows to intimate weddings, for friends, guests and A-list celebrities. Experience that means that I am able to guarantee I’ll make your wedding, your party or corporate event exceptional.


“You exceed everyone’s expectations.”


See my other pages for information about my services. Or simply pick up the phone – I will always be happy to talk to you about what you are organising and to tell you about how I can make your event better than you could have imagined. If I’m free for your event, you can look forward to hearing everyone talk about it for a very long time to come.

I am based in Hampshire and also perform across the UK  and internationally.

Most people when looking for a Wedding Magician are searching for either a local magician or a magician near me. The main reason for this is that you want to ensure whoever you are hiring is going to arrive at your wedding reception and not have to travel hundreds of miles. Whilst this is true to a certain extent Colin is based in Hampshire, near Southampton he has performed at weddings in Milan, France, lots of times in London and across the UK. 

A lot of these type of events are usually larger functions with 100's of guests, but Colin is equally at home performing for a small garden party in Petersfield. 

Magician Hire 

The main factor when hiring a Magician is the cost and it's going to be cheaper to hire a local magician as they do no have to factor in extra time for travel.

Trade Show Magician

Stop for a moment and imagine your next trade show. You and your team will have spent ages organising all the brochures, ordering branded giveaways, planning your stand and preparing your sales pitches.


But what if people don’t stop at your stand long enough to listen to what you need to tell them?

What if nobody remembers what you were telling them?

You need a Trade show Magician - Colin has been working at trade shows for many years and as a business owner, shareholder, and a director at executive and operational level in the SME market he really understands to to engage with a business audience and now perform magic in that sales focussed arena.
