Hire a Magician in Hertfordshire

If you are looking for a Magician in Hertfordshire who will guarantee your guests a truly unique and memorable experience then you have come to the right place. Each performance is suited to the client’s needs and it can be assured that your guests will be amazed, amused and astonished.

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 Hertfordshire.

Edward has a number of performances suitable for every event including corporate functions, weddings, dinners and private parties.  His CLOSE UP AND TABLE MAGIC performance is ideal for drinks parties and dinners where Edward will mix and mingle with your guests performing for small groups at a time. The DINNER SHOW OR PARLOUR SHOW is a version of Edward’s stage show designed to be performed in any venue, including private homes for smaller groups. His STAGE SHOW is ideal for corporate events and award ceremonies. Please click on the links for more details.

Each year Edward performs at over 150 events. He is a full time professional magician who has travelled the world performing for corporate and private clients. You can find testimonials from past clients HERE. Go to the GALLERY page or the VIDEO page to see pictures and videos of Edward in action. Edward recently set up a facebook page (he’s not much of a social media user!) for people to post reviews, photos and videos from past events. You can find that HERE.

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.

Hertfordshire Magician – Review

Just wanted to say a huge thank you!! You was amazing and blew everyone’s minds! Best magician we’ve ever had!!

Cara Dore – Twenty Twenty Television.

Just wanted to drop you a line to say how brilliant you were last night at our Christmas Party. You still have all the staff here at AIB International trying to work out how you managed to do what you did. I have been to many shows of this nature, but you have to be by far the ‘Most entertaining and skilled performer’, and that was the whole teams opinion. You were simply mesmerising all through the evening, not and bored person in the room, Worth every penny for the fantastic work you did. We will definitely be asking you to perform again for us soon !!!

Amanda Elliot – AIB International


We had Edward perform at a private function last night for friends and family, I must say, just wow. I have had a chance to see mind reading and magic tricks in various bars and parties i have been to over the years and it is often hit and miss. With Edward however this was not the case and he managed to pull off and perform every trick, illusion and mind blowing performance with awe inspiring results and a coif, sophisticated and professional style. Thank you again Edward and anybody who is looking for entertainment and that something different that will leave guests talking of such a great night and/or event for decades to come, look no further!

Close Up Magician Hertfordshire

On Saturday night I was booked to perform close up magic in St Albans, Hertfordshire for an 18th birthday party for about 100 people.

The event was a drinks party with a buffet and a disco. I performed for about 2 hours between 8 to 10pm (before the disco got too loud). It was quite a casual event with people drinking and eating in small groups so I mixed and mingled with each group performing a 10 minute routine for each. Some groups were at tables others standing. Throughout the evening I performed a couple of special routines for the birthday girl and her close friends and family.

I had an email from them this morning, here’s what they had to say:

Hello Edward
Just wanted to say a really really big thank you for Saturday night. All the guests found you charming. Most were amazed by you and thoroughly enjoyed the time you spent with them. 
Eloise and her friend Chloe are baffled by you lol.
Both Kate and I will be recommending you to our friends (if that is OK?) as judging by the remarks and comments we have received regarding your performance you were a huge success.
Once again Edward Thank you
Yours very gratefully

I had a fantastic night performing for everyone. A massive thank you to Jacky for the booking.



Christmas Party Magician Hertfordshire

The Christmas season comes around again and as ever I am flat out. Between late November through to January I will be performing 2 or 3 shows a day almost seven days a week. This is without a doubt my busiest time of the year so if you’re after a magician in Hertfordshire for your Christmas party, whether a work event or private party, please remember to book early. The most popular shows at Christmas parties are my close up act at informal drinks parties and my dinner show for more formal sit down dinners.

On Friday night I was hired by UIA Insurance to perform at their Christmas party at Knebworth Park, Stevenage, Hertfordshire. The event was for 100 guests and was a sit down meal. I was hired to perform close up magic around the tables as people ate. Originally I had been asked to perform later in the evening but as they were having a disco I advised the client that it would be a bit noisy by this point and there was every chance as it was Christmas that people may have had a few drinks too many so we agreed on an earlier performance. I performed at each table throughout the evening, giving each group a 10 minute performance of close up magic and mind reading. Whenever I work at dinners I always ensure not to perform whilst people are eating so split my act into three parts between courses. I performed up until the disco started and as people were asking me to see something else I did a few more routines in the bar area outside. When I work at events of this nature I always make sure that each table see’s something unique whether it was mind reading, making predictions or bending metal with my mind. The main request after was to see more metal bending so I borrowed coins off people and bent them in their hands as they watched!

I had a really fun evening, a big thank you to UIA insurance for the booking. If you wish to hire a magician for your Christmas party in Hertfordshire then please get in touch to discuss your party.

Close Up Magic Hertfordshire

Saturday evening found me performing close up, table magic at an event in Hertfordshire. This was a super long day after an afternoon show in Portsmouth and endless driving around the hell that is the M25! The event was at The Moor Park Golf Club in Rickmansworth. This was my second performance at this venue in the last few months, the first was for their annual golf members event, that event led to me being booked for this one. This was for their annual tennis club dinner dance.

I performed for approximately 3 hours first performing close up magic during the drinks reception. This was a very casual and informal period to perform and it allowed me time to get to know people as I mix and mingles with them performing some of my simpler routines that can be performed standing. I love an opportunity like this before I move onto the main part of my close up magic show as it gives me a chance to know who will be the best people to work with later.  As soon as people were seated for dinner I joined them and started working the tables. Their were 8 tables in all which allowed me about 10 minutes at each table, stopping whilst food was served. At each table I would start with a routine that included everyone at the table, I would then move onto some more in depth mind reading, getting people to think of names of old friends and then describing the person and naming them, and asking people to draw pictures and reproducing them. I ended the evening with a routine for the entire audience to watch using the club captains which went down a treat.

I had a fantastic night performing for everyone and look forward to being back at this stunning venue again soon. If you’re after a Hertfordshire magician for your event please get in touch.
