Preparing for tomorrow night’s Zoom dinner party magical entertainment. Everybody will receive four playing cards to join in the climax of the show. This will involve tearing the cards in half. To make that a little easier, I have a made little snip at the top of the cards. As with so many things in life, preparation is everything.

  Well, for the time being dinner parties are a thing of the past. Unless, of course, you decide to hold a VIRTUAL dinner party. It’s quite simple. Say three couples join in. Each prepares one dish.  Somebody acts as courier, dropping off and picking up dishes. Once home, dinners can be warmed and the Zoom meeting started up. Before, during and after the meal there are plenty of opportunities for games, quizzes etc.  And, if you fancy a bit

I made a very brief appearance in ITV’s Secrets of Your Christmas Dinner last night.

    Special birthdays and anniversaries are too important to go unmarked, even in these unusual times. If you are planning a small ‘bubble’ party for yourself or a loved one, you can still make it remarkable. It doesn’t matter how small the numbers or the size of the room. Just book my private magic and mind-reading parlour show. Find out more below:      

Performed my first gig since lockdown on Saturday. It was held in a garden to reduce risk of cross infection. It felt fantastic to be performing again. The show lasted about 45 minutes. Magic included: ~ spectator selects a random name on a random page in a telephone directory. I predicted the name he would select. This is a new addition to my show. Lockdown gave me breathing space to develop new explorations in my mind-reading research. ~Torn up pieces of paper

  Apart performing magic (Let’s be honest: I love an audience)    my other great passion in life is reading.   I’ve been a book worm all my life. My mum told me that my first teacher said she had never met a child as determined to learn how to read as I was. I would spend days as a teenager in the local library. Unless I must keep an appointment, plane or train delays never bother me. It’s the

..and it’s time to face the challenges of the post lockdown landscape.   For me, it’s how do I perform my type of Magic So Close Up You Can See The Whites of Their Eyes… and yet maintain social distance?   The answer is simple:   I don’t.     Instead I offer two alternative services. An old favourite and a ‘Johnny come lately’.   Trusty Favourite: The Magic Show. Basically, I take over one end of a room or

Did You Know That If  You Book A Magician…. 1.    Your guests can tell the people you didn’t invite what an amazing party they missed. Fantastic opportunity to sow the seeds of envy and discord. 2.    The guests who are too drunk to join in the dancing without falling over and smashing up your brand-new designer furniture, can be safely kept entertained in a corner. 3.    You won’t be tripping over the children…and smashing up your brand-new designer furniture. 4.    You gain major bragging rights as your guests gush

Here are some handy tips to ensure you squeeze every last drop value out of the magician.     Actually, Why Bother? First, do you really need a magician at all? Most families have some saddo uncle who can pull a coin for behind an ear. Surely that’s enough. Let’s face, most of the guests will be legless within half an hour of the bar opening. They would be fooled by anybody who was less drunk -not that difficult- than

    The Midas Experience  “The golden touch is no blessing,” cried Midas.    The Midas Experience is my mind-reading show. I combine astonishing mentalism with thought provoking questions about possessing extraordinary powers. The Midas Experience takes a fresh approach to mind-reading entertainment. How? By grippping the emotions AND the intellect. The audience witness incredible feats of mind manipulation, prediction, synchronicity and mind-reading. Some volunteers will even explore their own psychic abilities. But The Midas Experience is different to the
