“Made our busy Saturday evenings into something special.”
“We asked James if he could do table magic at our wedding. We were so pleased with the buzz he created, pockets of awe and laughter as he moved from table to table. We’d been expecting an hour or so but he worked his socks off. His style of magic was both inventive and adaptive to whoever he was performing to.
We were so pleased we booked him, it brought something very special to our wedding. James created the most brilliant atmosphere at our wedding through his quite simply magical magic. He worked non stop for four hours and kept all ages, the cynical and naïve alike wanting more of his enticing brand of magic.
We were all agog with what he managed to do. He worked the whole room and some 140 people so everyone got their own special show. It was fab, amazing and superb.
Thanks James you helped add real magic to the best day ever.”

“If you want beans you go to Heinz if you want to read how much weight Kerry Katona has lost on her recent diet you read Hello. Why? Because they have all been doing what they do for a long time, as has James. James has been honing his art for years and has always been a very able and impressive Magician.
Having not seen James for around ten years, my sister was getting married and I wanted to get a Magician for the Wedding present and James was my first contact. He blended in with the crowd by doing amazing close-up magic and was really good enough to stop until the end of the evening well past his allotted time to impress all the guests.
You could spot where he was for the whole evening by the crowd gathered around him. I can personally recommend that a booking with James will guarantee to wow your crowd no matter of age or event.”
