Guildford 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. Each performance is suited to the client’s needs and it can be assured that your guests will be amazed, amused and astonished.

Whether you are after a Guildford magician for a private or corporate event Edward will have a show to suit your event. Edwards Close up act is perfect for weddings, dinners, banquets, drinks parties and balls whilst his stage show is ideal for corporate and charity events. For smaller events where you want the theatrics of a stage show Edward has his parlour/dinner show, a stage show designed for the smallest of venues. No matter the size of your event Edward will have a show to suit your needs. Each performance is designed for the individual event so you will be guaranteed a truly unique act. If you are after a Guildford Magician Edward’s stunning contemporary magic and mind reading will make your event truly unforgettable.

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.

As one of the few full time professional magicians in the UK Edward understands the difficulty in booking a magician for an event. The internet is full of magicians claiming to be the best, but as with everything on the internet this has to be taken with a pinch of salt. For this reason over the last year Edward has set up a Facebook account for past clients to post pictures, videos and reviews from Edwards past performances. You can find that HERE.  This will give an idea of some of the 150 events Edward performs at each year and why he is one of the UK’s leading entertainers. You can find further reviews HERE, a picture gallery HERE and more videos HERE.

Guildford Magicians – 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.

We have been pondering how to write a review about Edward as it is a delicate task to translate the sense of WONDER and SURPRISE Edward managed to cast on all our guests. Edward is possibly one of the BEST professionals I have had the chance to hire recently as from quoting to delivery he has been impeccably prompt, helpful and professional; he managed to work with an international audience with great skills, expertise and a wonderful personal touch. He helped to make our wedding reception more than special – MEMORABLE. I will have no hesitation to recommend him but also to invite him again!

You are being talked about in the office constantly this morning. I really am thrown by the performance you did with John and myself, I have no idea how it worked but it certainly did. I have no doubt we will all be talking about you and recommending you to friends and colleagues.  Thank you again and I hope to be entertained by you again in the future.

The following is taken from my old website. I have literally thousands of articles detailing past bookings, over the next few months I will attempt to transfer these over. For the time being I hope this will give an idea of some of the events I am performing at each week.

Wedding magician Guildford

On Friday afternoon I was hired to perform at a wedding at Loseley Park in Guidford. I was hired to perform during the drinks reception as guests arrived at the venue prior to the wedding breakfast. This is generally my preferred time to perform at a wedding, it’s usually a quiet time for many of the guests who aren’t involved in the photos with many standing around with nothing to do but drink for a couple of hours. Despite it being the middle of July it was pouring with rain so unfortunately it couldn’t take place in the stunning gardens at the venue, instead it took place in the equally stunning house. This was a rare wedding that was running on time, the guests arrived at the venue at 2.30, I always like to give people five minutes to get into the venue, greet one another and get drinks in hand. As soon as everyone was settled I got started. For an event of this nature I like to keep things casual, mixing and mingling with the guests performing for small groups at a time, whether seated or standing. Here’s one of the more simple routines I may perform. When I first join a group I like to have a bit of a warm up to get an idea how people think. I might write something down, ask someone to name a playing card, the card they name will be the same as I have written down. I will then move into mind reading. I might ask someone to think of an old friend, I will then describe and name this friend! The bride and groom were off having photos for the first hour and a half, when they returned I performed for them. I decided to perform a special routine for them, something I can only ever perform the once which demonstrates the love between two people and how they can read each other minds. It was met with gasps from all those who had gathered around to watch. I used this as a finale and a really memorable way to end a performance. It was a really fun afternoon and I was very pleased to receive another booking at the same venue form one of the organisers, always my favourite type of compliment. If you’re after a Guildford Magician please get in touch for more details.
