  • How many people can you perform for?
    There really is no limit to the number of people I can perform my magic to. It's just a case of working out what form of magic show will give you and your guests the most memorable experience.
  • How far are you willing to travel?
    I regularly travel to venues all over the UK, and overseas. Whilst most of my performance is visual, audiences benefit most if they are English speaking.
  • When should I book you for a magic performance?
    Normally about 6 weeks before your event, but you can book my services as far ahead as you like, and sometimes I am able to make last minute bookings if you've been let down.
  • I've heard of The Magic Circle. What is it and are you a member?
    I am a member of The Magic Circle - a prestigious society of world class magicians, established in 1905 and with about 1,500 members (as of 2018). Members of The Magic Circle pass a strict application process to test their skills as performers and members have included Tommy Cooper, David Nixon, Michael Vincent, Paul Daniels, Stephen Fry and even His Majesty King Charles!
  • What are your travel costs?
    I charge at the standard British mileage rate of 45p per mile. However, it's worth noting that bookings in and around Cardiff (including Barry) are exempt from travel costs.
  • How did you do that?
    Very well, thank you.
  • Can you provide magic with a theme for my event?
    Yes - I'm often asked to build my magic performance to follow a particular theme. Whether it's a Wedding, Halloween, Christmas or New Years Eve party or any other occassion, just let me know via my enquiry form what you're thinking of.
  • What kind of magic do you perform?
    I perform both close-up and stage magic using a wide variety of items, some prepared, some impromtu with whatever objects are to hand like napkins, salt and cutlery. Close-up magic means just that, it's magic that you just won't believe performed right in front of your eyes. My award-winning cabaret show is for all ages and features card magic, money magic, rope magic and a mind blowing finale!
  • What is the booking process?
    The booking process is designed to be simple and convenient. To get started, head over to my Magic Services page.

  • How long can you perform for?
    Around 2 or 3 hours is normal, but please don't feel limited by that. I have performed close-up magic for up to five hours, but it's totally dependant on you and how long you require me to perform for. My stage shows last to 45-60 minutes.
  • Can you make my wife disappear?
    Ahhhh, the most frequently asked question of all! Sorry, but if you're serious then you might want to think about a lawyer.
