I’ve been performing as a magician for 15 years now and full time for the past 10 years. Each year I perform at approximately 200 events throughout the year and have performed at pretty much every type of party, event and corporate do imaginable. In regards to private events I regularly perform at weddings, birthday parties, anniversary parties, once at a high class swingers party, very interesting! In this time the only type of event I haven’t performed at is a Bar Mitzvah. I’ve been asked to perform at many over the years but have always felt my style of magic may be inappropriate as they have been looking for a performer for children which really isn’t me. I’m always happy to perform for children at any event I’m at but generally my style of magic is far more suited to adults. Anywhere from the age of 12 upwards is fine but younger children are not entirely suited to the more psychological magic I perform.

So last night I performed at my first Bar Mitzvah and it was a fantastic night. I was booked by the father of the boy having his Bar Mitzvah and he required a magician to perform at the tables whilst people ate performing for the adults and the children who would be in their early teens, a perfect age for me.

The event took place at Sussex County Cricket Ground. I started the evening with a bit of a warm up, performing for people as they arrived for drinks. A common warm up for me is too ask people to think of a number, before they think of anything I write a number down. If I am correct in my judgement of the person the number I write down is the same as what they are thinking of. I then take this a little further and ask them to think of a couple of numbers of their pin number. I tell them the numbers! I only go for a couple of the numbers in the pin numbers as I don’t want them to worry they might have to go and change their number the next day! Happy to say I had a 100% success rate last night. I performed for people whilst they drank for about an hour, they then went in to eat. During this period I performed at the tables giving each table a 10 minute show, taking the mind reading and predictions much further. I ended the evening by performing a special routine for the parents of the boy having his Bar Mitzvah.

It was a fantastic evening with a really lovely group of people who I had so much fun performing for. As I write this I’ve just had an e-mail from one of the guests. They wrote, “We saw you last night at the Bar mitzvah and thought you were amazing! We spoke to you about the possibility of performing at our upcoming wedding. We just wanted to know if you were definitely free that date  We would want you to perform like last night going to each table during the meal”.

Always a wonderful feeling to get such positive feedback and more work.

Here’s another:

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for last night. You kept us royally entertained and all our guests thoroughly enjoyed your amazing feats! I won’t hesitate to recommend you.”

I want to thank everyone at Sussex Cricket Ground for their help, a wonderful venue A massive thank you to Steve for the booking and Mazel Tov to Sam. My first Bar Mitzvah was a lot of fun and I hope to perform at many more in future.

On Saturday night I was hired to perform close up magic at a private event in Brighton at the luxury Ocean Heights apartments. The event was organised by the builder and developer of the apartments to celebrate selling the last of the flats. The flats are overlooking the marina and the event took place in the stunning penthouse. The guests included people who had purchased the apartments and the builders and people who had worked on the building, all together there were about 50 guests.

The event was a very relaxed drinks party which allowed me to casually mix and mingle with the guests performing for small groups at a time. I started the evening performing a 10  minute routine for each group which involved close up magic of a psychological nature, making predictions and reading minds. It took about an hour and a half to get around everyone and spent the rest of the evening (I had been booked for 2 hours but ended up staying for about 3) being called over to groups of people who were asking to see more. At this point I could take things further performing some more in depth mind reading and a number of my favourite routines which I only get the chance to perform when I have additional time. It was a really fun evening with a really lovely group of people and I was very pleased to receive another booking for a wedding later in the year. I also managed to get some free building advice from one of the builders!

Here’s a few comments I have received since;

“Hi Edward, we saw you perform at Tanias party on Saturday. We absolutely loved your show, we’ve been talking about you all day and can’t for the life of us figure out how you knew the name of my best friend at school, that was 40 years ago for God’s sake! We want to book you for our daughters wedding we have later this year……”

“Thanks so much for last night, you were a huge hit and made out party”

Thanks to Jerry and Tania for the booking. If you want to hire a Brighton magician for your event please get in touch.


On Saturday night I was hired by Rockwell Colins, the multinational aerospace corporation to perform at their annual New Years Ball for their staff and families. This is the first of two events  for the same company with a second coming up next week in Ascot.

This was my first show in a couple of weeks after a hectic Christmas period, 30 shows in 20 days. Things always slow down rapidly in January which usually gives me a weeks holiday and time to work on new material, scripting new shows etc. There’s a trick I’ve had in mind for months now and this was the perfect opportunity to give it a try. Due to the psychological nature of much of what I do, it can  be impossible to try this stuff on family and friends so when I want to try something new for the first time I just have to go out and try it, always nerve wracking. Especially at such a lovely venue as the Brighton Grand.

The first part of the night was a drinks reception and I stuck to a standard pattern here. Performing close up for small groups of 3 to 5 people, showing each group a five to ten minute routine. The second part of the night called for table magic. Each table had a unique 10 minute routine, including all the guests in the various tricks. At the end of the night I went back to one of the tables to try out my new routine. It’s very hard to describe but it involves dowsing with a pendulum and reading peoples emotions. It went down a storm and I can see this particular routine becoming part of my regular show, just need to hone it over a few hundred more performances until I’m 100% happy with it.

The whole night was a huge success and I look forward to performing for the company again next week. If you’re a after a Brighton Magician to perform at your corporate event please get in touch.

Corporate Magician Brighton

June and July are my busiest time of the year apart from over Christmas. The vast majority of my work over this time is performing at corporate summer parties. On Friday evening I performed at a summer party for Legal and General at the Brighton Holiday Inn. This is the third year in a row I’ve performed at this event. As with any event I arrived about an hour early to check out the venue and to meet with the event organiser to go over any last minute details. The hotel were kind enough to let me park in their car park which is always a relief in Brighton were parking can involves taking out a mortgage! Everything on the night was fairly straightforward, a standard drinks party with a circus theme. I was to mix and mingle with the guests both inside the large room they’d hired and outside the venue on the balcony out the front, where I expected the majority to be due to the heat. I was meant to start at 6pm but people didn’t start to arrive until 6.15 so gave them a few minutes to get drinks in hand and actually started about 6.30. I always expect times to be a little fluid so always happy to start late and perform until later (unless it’s one of the days I have another booking to get to afterwards). I always like to keep things fairly relaxed on evenings like this, I will casually mix with small groups of people performing a five to ten minute routine for each group. As soon as I got started with the first group more people were being called over by friends to come and have their minds read so I ended up staying in one place for most of the night with people coming over to me which I find always works very well when it’s large groups of people (about 200). I performed like this for a couple of hours then made my way outdoors and performed a little show for everyone outside for about an hour. I had been booked for 2 hours but ended up staying for close to 4 with more people coming over to me to have their minds read every time I considered leaving! It was a really fun evening with a lovely group of people and I look forward to seeing them all again next year. Get in touch for more details regarding hiring a corporate magician in Brighton.
