Edward demonstrated his professionalism from the start. He listened very carefully our expectations and tailored his show based on the intent of the event, time we had and the nature of audience. He arrived earlier than he should to complete his preparations and familiarize himself with the audience. All our guests at our corporate Christmas lunch were so amazed with Edwards show. He has this great ability to get immediate attention of all the guests (ours was a multi cultural event with wide range of different backgrounds and ages) and keep them engaged throughout the show. After the show so many guests approached me to share their admiration to him. Personally I was really amazed with his mind reading ability and knowing the unexpected. We will definitely consider him for our future events and I can recommend him with no hesitation.

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!
Just wanted to email to say thank you so much for your attendance at our wedding at the Althorp Coaching Inn on 1st September. You were certainly one of the highlights of the day and so many of the guests commented on their amazement at your mind reading skills Best of all – John (my husband) was also raving about you and how your attendance complimented the day perfectly. I never told him when I booked you as he will often look for practical reasons to say no to such things and he is also very sceptical – but as ever – he realised it was a good idea once you were there. A couple who were at the wedding and planning on marrying themselves next year said they would like to book you – although they are yet to set their date but I will give them your details.

On Saturday night I was hired to perform close up magic for the Keep The Beat charity in Leicester. The event was their annual ball held at The Jury’s Inn at Hinckley. The event was a black tie dinner and dance for 250 people. I was hired to perform close up magic and mind reading throughout the drinks reception and at tables between courses of the meal. This was a very standard close up performance, during the drinks reception I mixed and mingled with the guests performing 5 to 10 minute routines for each group. During the meal I performed at each table, of about 20 guests each. For a table performance I will try and include everyone in the routines culminating in an effect where I read the minds of as many of the guests as possible. I was hired to perform for 2 hours but ended up staying for 3 hours as people kept asking to see one more routine. If you’re after a close up magician in Leicester go to close up magic for more details or contact me directly to discuss your event.
Last week I was booked to perform at the East Midlands LABC building excellence awards at the Athena, Leicester. I have performed at a number of events throughout the UK with the finals culminating in a grand event in London. This is a black tie event with about 300 guests having a formal three course meal. As there were so many guests I recommended a second performer to ensure all the guests would receive a close up performance.
I started performing during the drinks reception as the guests first arrived. Performing close up magic, mind reading and psychological illusion for the guests as they drank and mingled., This part of the evening lasted for about 45 minutes. After the guests were seated for the meal I started to go around the tables performing as a table magician giving each table a 10 minute performance. As it was such a large event with so many guests I had to be quite strict regarding time for each table, after finishing one routine I am nearly always asked for more which I’m usually happy to do but unfortunately time was very restricted as the awards ceremony was to start immediately after the meal so I had to say no under these circumstances. The whole evening was huge success and led to a number of new bookings which is always a great compliment.
