Magicians Colchester – Reviews

Thank you for attending our event on Thursday evening, our guests were utterly amazed and you continue to be discussed in the office over your talents!  It was truly brilliant, such art.

Edward is a talented, charismatic, professional. He attended a private event we hosted for a small group of elite professionals – and we were all baffled by his show. His ability to entertain and to read people’s minds is outstanding. If you are looking for a talented professional, who will entertain your friends – Edward is the man for you. You will NOT be disappointed! He is truly AMAZING and TALENTED – HIGHLY recommend! Thank you Edward for an unforgettable performance! It was highly entertaining. I feel like we won the lottery finding you for our group!

Close up magic Colchester
Last weekend I was hired to perform close up magic in Colchester for a 50th birthday party. The party took place in a pub that had been hired for the night. I was booked to perform between 8pm and 10pm and there to be about 80 guests.

Whenever I perform close up I made sure to arrive an hour early to give myself time to prepare, discuss the evening with the host  and with the manager at the venue to ensure I knew exactly what they required and they knew exactly the nature of what I would be doing. This was a particularly straight forward booking, I would be spending the evening casually mixing and mingling with the guests as they ate and drank. In one of the rooms they had an acoustic guitarist singing for the guests so I made sure to avoid this room to ensure I could be heard and equally I wouldn’t distract from the music.

Throughout the evening I mixed with small groups of guests, giving each group a 10 minute performance of close up mind reading and psychological magic. A typical routine would be for me to start off with a simple warm up. I might write something down and then ask the group between them all to think of the name of a playing card and imagine taking it from an imaginary deck of playing cards. Once they named the card I would show the piece of paper I had written on to show I had predicted the name of the card they would choose. This is a great warm up as it helps me decide who will be the best people to work with for a more in-depth routine. Next I would move on to mind reading, I might ask someone to think of the name of an old friend, another person to draw a picture and another person to think of a number, their PIN number for example. I would then tell them the number, describe and name the friend and finally duplicate the drawing! I was very pleased to have an almost 100% success rate throughout the evening.

It was a fantastic evening with a really lovely group of people. As I was leaving people asked to see more so I decided to perform one final routine for the birthday girl and her husband. This is a very special routine that I rarely perform but if you ever see me at a show ask to see my empathy routine and if circumstances are right I may show it to you.

Here’s what the lady who booked me had to say in an email I received this morning:

“Hi just wanted to say a massive thank you for last night. Everybody is talking about the many amazing things you did! Thank you for helping to make my 50th celebrations so special . You certainly wowed the guests .”
