If you are looking for a Bournemouth Magician who will guarantee your guests a truly unique and memorable experience then Edward Crawford’s combination of contemporary magic, mind reading and humour will; be the perfect entertainment for your event. Each performance is suited to the client’s needs and it can be assured that your guests will witness a performance they will never forget. Edward is a full time professional magician who performs at over 150 events each year. He has a number of performances suitable for every event including close up magic, a stage show and a dinner show. Each performance is unique and will be tailored to your requirements.
Magician and mind reader Edward Crawford has been performing his unique style of illusion for over 15 years and has captivated audiences throughout the world. He is currently one of the most sought after magicians and private entertainers in the UK and performs throughout the country, including Bournemouth. Edward performs at a number of different events each year including weddings, corporate events, Christmas parties, dinners, balls and drink parties.
Edward’s style of magic is a lot more than card tricks. He performs a genre of magic known as mentalism, best described as magic of the mind, or even Jedi mind tricks! This is the closest thing to real magic you will ever witness. In a typical show Edward will read thoughts that would be impossible for him to know, control the future, influence the present and at times he will demonstrate telekinesis (moving objects with his mind). No camera trickery or stooges, like you might, rightfully, suspect when you see a TV magician. All this and more will happen directly in front of you.
You can read reviews from past clients HERE, check out pictures HERE and videos HERE. Over the last year Edward has created a facebook page for past clients to leave reviews, pictures and videos. You can check that out HERE. This will hopefully give an idea of some of the events Edward performs at each year.

A massive THANK YOU for last night. You were absolutely brilliant
Just to say thanks so much for Saturday evening.
The guests were so impressed with your entertainment , especially the key bending.
I had calls all day yesterday thanking me for booking such fab entertainment, and your name was mentioned again and again. There are a few people getting married this year, and I have already been asked for your details, so you definitely made an impression. I’m hoping to plan a Summer Ball as well , so hopefully we can have you return

I wanted to send you a quick email to say a massive thanks for being such a big part of our wedding day. Since the big day we’ve had so many nice things said, but a lot of the comments refer to how good you were and how much your performances added to the day itself. It will be a pleasure to recommend you if I ever get the chance and should I ever need for an entertainer of your ilk again you can bet I’ll give you a call – it really was superb and both Claire and I are thrilled that you were part of our big day.

The following blogs have been taken from my old website. There are literally thousands of entries on there detailing past bookings. Over the next few months I will attempt to copy these over to the relevant pages. Hopefully these will give an idea of the type of performances I have given in Bournemouth.
Table Magician Bournemouth
On Saturday night I was hired to perform at the Marriott Highcliffe Hotel in Bournemouth. The event was for a masonic ladies day with a group coming for the weekend from Kent. This was a late booking and the times were a bit up in the air as I had an earlier booking in Yeovil so advised I’d be able to start as soon as I arrived which was somewhat dependent on traffic which could have been an issue as it was a bank holiday weekend. Thankfully traffic was light so I arrived early. On arrival I met with the client to quickly run through the evening. It takes me about 15 minutes to set up, then I’m ready to go.
I started performing during the drinks reception. I like to see this period as a bit of a warm up, getting an idea who would be the best people to work with for the main event. I performed routines for small groups as they stood drinking, casually mixing and mingling with each group, there were about 100 people there in total. A simple routine I might perform at this point involves the psychology of lying. Someone would take a £1 coin, hide it one of their hands, I would tell them which hand it was in. After doing this a number of times I would show that I had predicted in advance which hand they would have it in each time! After about 30 minutes the group went into the main dining room. At this point I started to perform at the tables. Each table received a ten minute routine which would include all the guests. I would read minds, maybe tell someone the name of an old friend they were thinking of. A good example is as follows, someone asked me if I could tell them their favourite sport….it was golf! I performed for about 2 hours at the tables (stopping briefly whilst the main course was served) and managed to get around all the tables twice. It was a fantastic evening with a really nice group of people. Very pleased to have an email from one of them today asking to book me for an event at Christmas, my favourite type of compliment.

On Wednesday afternoon back at Sopley Mill just outside of Bournemouth performing at a wedding reception. Sopley Mill is one of my favourite places to perform and I’m very pleased to be one of their recommended suppliers (the only magician) so it’s a regular venue for me. It was a rare sunny day this summer so the reception could take place outside in the gorgeous gardens. I performed during the drinks reception directly after the ceremony, before the wedding breakfast. This is always a preferred time for a performance at a wedding as it can be a quiet time for many of the guests who aren’t involved in the photos. It was a really relaxed wedding so I kept my performance equally relaxed, mixing and mingling with the guests, performing for small groups at a time. I made my way around everyone, generally performing for 3 or 4 people at a time. Towards the end I performed a special routine for the bride and groom, this was a routine taken from my cabaret show and all the guests could watch this. This is one of my favourite routines to perform as it’s all about those taking part and it demonstrates the love between the two of them. Received a fantastic compliment from the photographer at the wedding who mentioned he watched thousands of magicians at all the weddings he photographs and they all seem to perform the same tricks where as what I was doing was unique and nothing he had seen before, this is what I aim for so it was great to have it acknowledged.
