Tomorrow night I’ll be performing on Penn & Teller: Fool Us; a television show featuring some of my favourite magicians! The show will air in the USA on the CW Channel and hopefully later on other channels throughout the world. We recorded the show in Las Vegas in March this year and I’m excited for it to finally air!
I’ll be performing my balloon act that I also performed on ITV 1’s Next Great Magician late last year.
I have performed at my friend Steve Faulkner’s show “Steve’s Magic Night” a few times over the last couple of years. It’s always packed with a really fun crowd. Last time I got the opportunity to perform alongside another close friend John Archer. Here are a couple of photos from the show:
A few days ago I posted some photos by Christy Blanch. Here are a few more:
I recently performed at an event in Gloucestershire, where I met Christy Blanch; an amazing photographer. She took the snaps below — I am particularly impressed how well she captured the reactions of the people at the table.
I don’t perform at many public events. Next week, however, I’ll be performing at the world famous Magic Circle Headquarters in London. I’ll be performing my card magic act that I performed at The Magic Castle in Hollywood that involves having fifteen people pick cards and me finding every single one.
Tickets are available from the link below:
Last night I worked in Ross-on-Wye at an event for the managers of EDF Energy. Given that I live just outside Ross-on-Wye (and I think I am the only close-up magician who lives near Ross!), it’s always great to work near home.
The dinner was a small affair with just three tables and about thirty guests. I performed a small show lasting about twenty minutes for each table and had a lot of fun.
The event was at Parkfields Country House just outside of Ross-on-Wye. I haven’t worked there before but hope to return soon as it’s a lovely venue.
I recently performed for a winter ball at Duke of Gloucester Barracks, South Cerney in Gloucestershire. I recently a very positive email from the Captain who booked me. Here is a brief extract from her email:
I would like to thank you for an excellent evening of magical entertainment during our Winter Ball! I received many extremely positive comments about your performances to each table with many saying that your act was the best they have ever seen at a ball (and some of them go to a lot of Balls!). I will highly recommend you for Summer/Winter Balls we will have in the future and I will pass your details onto the next entertainments member.
This Christmas I performed two events for the Cheltenham-based clothing brand Superdry at the brand new 131 The Promenade in Cheltenham. Having performed at the opening party for the hotel, it was great to be back a week later to perform for two more evenings.
One of the Superdry photographers (Andrew Coley) took a few snaps as I was performing. I think they are really fun. Here they are:
The girl in the shot is reacting to me turning a deck of cards into a block of glass! If you want to see this, and much more, I am available to hire as a Magician in Cheltenham and of course, a close-up magician throughout the country!

Last week I performed in Milton Keynes alongside John Archer, a fantastic stand-up magician and very good friend. John performed a stage show and then after the show I performed close-up magic in the bar. Here’s what I received from the organiser of the event, shortly after:
Having never used an entertainer for our flagship organisational leadership event, I was a little nervous as to how it would be received. I need not have worried. You were not only a phenomenal magician who really did “stun and amaze,” you were also the consummate professional. I would have no hesitation in either using you again or recommending you for any kind of function.

The town that I am performing close-up magic the most in this Christmas is Cheltenham. Amongst the traditional Christmas shows, I am booked to perform close-up magic at a new hotel opening, at various army events and a couple of hotels in Cheltenham.
I live near Cheltenham (just outside of Gloucester) to performing as a close-up magician near my home is the perfect situation for me! So if you need a magician in Cheltenham for your Christmas party please let me know as I may be available to help!
And of course, this Christmas, I am performing at various Christmas parties just outside of Cheltenham too, including events in Stroud, Gloucester, Newent, Ross-on-Wye and Tewkesbury.
