My now wife, Amanda, and I were looking for something or someone to WOW our guests when we got married . . .
Fortunately, the entertainment gods were smiling on us when we were referred to the most dapper exponent of the Magical Arts there is, Colin Phillips – Magician. Colin is the real deal. This showreel is fantastic but if you really want the XXX Factor then book him for your own celebration, or find out where he's performing and gatecrash!"
If you are looking for a Hampshire Magician - just hire Colin!
Paul and Amanda Hill
Absolutely amazing throughout the whole process of planning our wedding, the attention to detail from Colin was faultless. We had Colin as our master of ceremony and magician, two very different jobs but both executed perfectly, our day flowed and transitioned effortlessly due to how Colin planned it. Colin is nothing short of exceptional at what he does, the tricks had every guest astonished and not believing what they had just seen! I have received ample messages about Colin since the wedding and confident he will be getting booked from some guests! I’m not one to usually leave reviews but the services provided were breath taking and made our day!! Thank you so much for everything !!
Paul and Alexandra Pennells
We are so so glad that we had Colin at our wedding. He is so professional and responsive and he is also so kind and friendly which came across in his lovely emails from the start. Our guests were absolutely blown away by his magic, as were we! We loved that he gave us some time to see some magic, just with the bride and groom, as weddings are so fast paced and we were worried we weren’t going to see any of it. We definitely did and we loved every second! We would definitely recommend Colin to anyone who loves magic and would like to get some extra entertainment for your guests. He is amazing !!
Colin is a fantastic magician, and I don't just mean good, he is amazing - good enough to have his own TV show. He kept my 28 guests guessing for days how he had performed his amazing magic. In fact that was practically all everyone said about my party afterwards! Colin is very professional and very personable - he gets on with everyone really easily and keeps them entertained. He is very flexible and has worked in so many different venues that he suggested the best way to integrate with my guests at the party, and he was absolutely right. Whatever occasion you are planning, speak to Colin and he will give you some really great ideas of how he can enhance that occasion. You definitely will be very pleased that you booked him, I certainly was! :)
Colin Phillips is an outstanding close up magician. Colin has also worked with me on many charity events and he’s a great supporter to my cause and has been for many years. He is slick, quick, funny and looks the part. He has a chemistry that mesmerises, and he engages with the audience, where you can hear a pin drop. I would highly recommend Colin, who is the best you will see. Take it from me, if you are having an event, be it a party, corporate or any other celebration, you will not be disappointed. I can go well beyond the five stars requested on Google reviews, I will give Colin 10 stars just for a starter ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

If there is one thing that you should do for your wedding, it is to get Colin to perform magic for you and your guests! Colin was absolutely brilliant at our wedding, he got on with all the guests so well, he consistently left them speechless and we have had comment after comment from everyone on how good he was. Every step of the process with him was smooth and easy, exactly what you want. He will without a doubt leave you with magical memories that you will never forget on your big day! Thank you Colin for everything!

Colin is a fantastic magician and definitely added the wow factor to our wedding. The guests all commented about how fascinating his performance was. He had them all captivated and left them many times scratching their heads in amazement. The special little touches and keepsakes he created for me and my husband was fantastic, a day we won’t forget that’s for sure. Thank you so Much Colin.

Colin was a brilliant addition to our entertainment at our daughters recent wedding. We kept him as a surprise. Our guests were thrilled and entertained so well, some kept going back for more. He performed personal surprise acts for the Bride and Groom and left them with gifts to cherish. They were blown away ! Colin has been professional throughout with good communication and such good value. We split our 3 hours as Colin was local to us. This was one of the reasons we chose him as we like to use local people. However I would have chosen him if he lived the other side of the country ! Please book Colin ! He will add so much to your event.
Colin was such a fantastic star at my daughters wedding on Friday he was brilliant with the adults he had lots of people mesmerised and wandering how he did the tricks the children were baffled he made the quite times very good everybody enjoyed his talent, and would ibook him again, yes definitely he made the big day extra special for us all.
"We hired Colin for our wedding in May this year after having spent lots of time witnessing his fantastic skills when I myself used to be a wedding supplier. I always told myself if I was to hold a special event Colin would be one of the must have elements! I took my partner to see Colin at a local wedding fair and he too was blown away. From pre booking right up to the day itself the service we received was exceptional. Prompt responses and the actual quality of the work Colin does is outstanding. He amazed both young and old alike and cracked some of the more skeptical tough cookies amongst our guests with ease. We really couldn't recommend Colin highly enough, you won't find a more professional or lovely magician anywhere."
What a master!! Extremely well presented and proficient, one of the best magicians I’ve ever seen and feedback from our guests is the same. Colin is outstanding.
"The immensely talented Mr Colin Phillips! If you're looking to hire a magician then hire the best Magician in Hampshire
You always know where he is in the room by the screams of disbelief! I have recommended Colin to clients many times and he never disappoints and to top it all off he is a true gent!🔥♥️♣️♦️"

Colin was amazing, we booked him for our works summer Party. Great value and amazing at what he does. We were all blown away with so many amazing tricks! I highly recommended him 100%, we have already booked him for our staff Christmas Party this year. Thanks Colin and look forward to seeing you again soon.
This guy is bloody amazing, we booked him for our Christmas party and we had a ball, worth every penny as some of the people were a bit sceptical and thought that he couldn’t pull the wool over their eyes, but he did they were all blown away, he did so many amazing tricks and he is a super funny guy. Booking him was really easy no hassle at all he was always in contact and always answered all my questions, I highly recommended him 100%, I will definitely be using him again. Thanks Colin for being great.
"Colin is simply incredible. My head tells me it's a trick. But my eyes tell me it's impossible. Actually scares me. How on earth do you pull a card out of an iPhone! On top of that he's about the most presentable magician I've ever met. He'll charm you and all your guests. Absolutely top bloke. If I could give him 10 stars it wouldn't be enough!"
"Thank you for performing at my recent birthday. My friends are still commenting on your brilliance ! Good luck for the future and remember me when you are famous!"
"Colin is exceptional at what he does ! We were lucky enough to book him for my husband's 70th Birthday party and the feedback from our guests was "He's amazing" " He's fantastic" "Where did you find him" ? And, many more superlatives to numerous to mention. Not only a true showman, but also a really nice guy whom I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone"
“We had a wonderful time on Saturday – your magic show really made the day. You exceed everyone’s expectations; the variety of tricks was exceptional, leaving us all amazed. We are still trying to work out the fork bending and Brexit £20 money tricks. I’m sure we will be talking about your show for months if not years to come. We will definitely be recommending you and hope to use you again for another occasion.”

“HUGE THANKS for such a wonderful performance last night. Everyone is still talking about it this morning and wondering how crosses got on palms, etc, etc. You really did get the party off to an amazing start and I know that you will be the topic of conversation for many months.

We will be booking you for our next event which won’t be long. I do hope that you will be free as we would love to have you back.”
"Not only is Colin a very talented magician, he is also a lovely person. He takes into consideration his audience and if there are those who are less able, he will make a point of including them. I would without hesitation recommend him for what ever function you are planning."

“It was lovely meeting you at the Beaulieu Hotel yesterday and I still can’t work out how you did it! It is great to meet quality suppliers and entertainers that are in a different league than the majority that I can add to my list of contacts. I will highly recommend you to brides at my meetings when discussing their wedding plans as they are often looking for additional ideas to make their weddings unique.”
“Many thanks for coming to the club. We are all still completely in awe of your talent and totally baffled as to where the tennis ball came from!”

“A big thank you for Saturday night. You truly amazed our guests, who all went home completely baffled. I will spread the word on your talents.”
"I haven’t booked Colin personally but i've been at multiple small and large events where he had been performing. His close up magic is second to none with a huge variety of styles and tricks, tagged along with the charisma and charm only normally seen in ‘TV magicians’ makes Colin the only magician I would ever look at to book for an event of my own."
“Thank you very much for your entertainment Friday night – it was thoroughly enjoyed by all and really helped make a great evening.”
Thank you so much for an absolutely spectacular performance at Jen's party in Lymington last night. I cannot even start to tell you how popular you were! The conversation revolved around your amazing tricks for the rest of the night (the party finished at 5am !) and then continued today at the survivors breakfast ! You certainly baffled us all. Thank you too for giving us an extended performance, which was greatly appreciated by all.
Both Ian and myself would like to say a massive thank you for entertaining us yesterday to celebrate his special birthday. You totally amazed and thrilled with your charm and wonderful talent. In fact you made the day . Our loved ones and dearest friends were there and had the most brilliant time so again many many thanks for stepping in. My daughter Julie was so pleased to be able to say ‘ I toid you Colin was just the best ‘ Have a lovely Christmas Colin and also that sprinkle of magic you promised certainly worked. Kindest regards,
Ann and Ian Shaw
We were lucky enough to recently have Colin perform at our wedding reception. Colin is amazing, he wowed everyone from children to adults & made the evening so enjoyable for all our guests! For even my husband who was a skeptic at first couldn’t stop talking about how great Colin was by the end of the evening. Definitely a top moment from our wedding we will never forget, thank you so much! X
This guy is bloody amazing, we booked him for our Christmas party and we had a ball, worth every penny as some of the people were a bit sceptical and thought that he couldn’t pull the wool over there eyes, but he did they were all blown away, he did so many amazing tricks and he is a super funny guy. Booking him was really easy no hassle at all he was always in contact and always answered all my questions, I highly recommended him 100%, I will definitely be using him again. Thanks Colin for being great.
Highly recommend++. Colin attended our corporate Awards meal last week. He entertained the guests during their meal and presented the prizes to our Awards winners. In preparation for the event, we collaborated closely with Colin who understood exactly what we wanted to achieve for our guests. Thank you very much Colin.
Colin, just wanted to say a big thank you for Saturday evening. You really added something very special to the evening and people are still talking about some of the illusions you performed. The card trick you did for Wendy and I was unbelievable and its got pride of place on a shelf in the house. So thanks again - really appreciate all you did to make it a fantastic time.
I have seen Colin at quite a few events but we have always been busy so never got the time to chat and watch him in action until a few weeks ago.....
Colin was simply brilliant, he captivated my imagination and blew me a way with a series of tricks that I’m still trying to work out how he even managed it!
I work with lots of magicians when I host events but Colin was certainly unique and could utilise and deliver a range of tricks that would keep everybody wanting more.
Dean John : Professional DJ and Event Manager
What an amazing night it was ! A lot of people are still talking about it !
Colin, you are an amazing man, full of energy and surprises. Thank you so much for helping to make Michaels 30th birthday special. Keep doing what you do Colin, you make people smile, laugh, and generally feel happy. I wish there were a lot more like you in the world.
"If you want some entertainment for your guests that will leave a lasting impression than book this man! Charming, funny and incredibly talented! I've been entertained by several close up magicians but Colin far outshines them all."
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for coming along and performing for us on our wedding day. We had so many people come up to us to say how brilliant you are. You did such an amazing job and we really appreciate it. Thank you so much.
David and Charlee
I just wanted to thank you for putting on such a great show for us at my party. You were a great hit ! All of my guests have written notes of thanks and you have been "waxed lyrical" by everyone.

Wow ! What ! that's unbelievable ! Get out of here !

I just wanted to say thank you so much for your performance on Saturday. My Dad had the most wonderful time and everyone was completely blown away by your magic! You were just amazing!
Thank you so so much! I am hopeful we will see you again in the future.
I just wanted to say many thanks for Saturday ! It was truly magical and the guests that I spoke to told me how much in awe they were of your amazing performances, culminating in the bent fork phenomenon. It was a pleasure meeting you again and as I mentioned to you towards the end of the afternoon, I really do feel that I now believe in magic! Best wishes.
I was extremely lucky to meet this incredible guy tonight. He is one of the most inspirational people I have met and truly feel so lucky too meet him. If anyone else is lucky enough to meet him you will completely understand what I mean. He has amazed me and now I do believe in magic and believe there are genuine people out there who just enjoy making someone happy!! He made smile, laugh and even cry. I highly recommend Colin and will be telling everyone about you. Thank you again for this evening and this has truly made me so happy. I still can't believe what I have seen this evening I hope one day I get the chance to meet you again.
I just wanted to thank you on behalf of all those at our Dinner last night.
You are a credit to your profession. I think you will be the talk of the golf club for a very long time, brilliant performance
Rich and I would just like to say a massive thank you for entertaining us and all of our guests, such a brilliant show yesterday. Everybody was amazed by how professional you were with "big show magic" at our small birthday gathering. Rich is still asking how you managed to produce that cricket ball! From my perspective, I'd just like to say thank you for making it so easy to discuss and plan for the party booking. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and we both wish you all the best for the future.

Colin is absolutely brilliant! He performed at my wedding on 19th August 2021 and I cannot recommend him enough.
His tricks are amazing and he interacts with the crowd brilliantly. He really did make the afternoon fabulous and everyone was raving about how amazing he was and no doubt they will be talking about his tricks for weeks to come!
Thank you Colin, you made our day so special.
Colin is an exceptional talent and also very professional in all respects - courteous, excellent communication, prompt and great value.
He wowed our guests and made sure he engaged with all of them. Their feedback was 100% positive.
If you’re lucky enough to be able to book him you’re in for a treat !
Right from the moment we met Colin we knew we had to book him for our wedding. He was so friendly and his illusions were truly mind blowing! He was the talk of the reception and all our friends were just as amazed as we were at his magic. He made sure everyone was included and went around to every table. We even got a magical keep sakes! Thank you so much Colin for making our day so memorable! We will be recommending to everyone we know! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
What a day! We had Colin visit the Marina to perform for our berth holders and they absolutely loved him. Colin worked his way down the pontoons on a lovely sunny day and everyone was having great fun whilst being beyond themselves when he revealed the final parts of his tricks.
Absolute gentleman and great character - Would highly recommend and we certainly hope to see Colin at the Marina again in the future.Thank you Colin!

Colin was just brilliant! Our VIP guests were rolling about laughing at some of the tricks he did, and others were left open mouthed at how he did them! Just a great addition to our event and would highly recommend him to anyone! Thanks again Colin!
