Looking for a great way to entertain guests at your wedding? There are hundreds of Gloucester weddings happening every year and I’m always happy to be on hand to create an amazing experience every single time. If you’re getting married in the Cotswolds, Gloucester, Cheltenham or anywhere else in Gloucestershire, I’d love to be part of making your wedding fun and memorable.
Here are a few reasons why I think I’m the perfect choice for a Gloucester wedding magician:
- I live in Gloucester so can easily help out at the last minute.
- I have performed at most of the Gloucester wedding venues and know them (and often their staff) well.
- I have been featured on Gloucestershire radio stations and in Gloucestershire newspapers and websites.
- I have testimonials from many people in Gloucestershire and would be happy to put you in touch with other Gloucester-based couples if you’d like to ask them questions about my performance.
- I am one of a select few professional Gloucester wedding magicians
- I don’t charge travel expenses so am often a little more inexpensive than magicians who have to travel to your wedding in Gloucester.

If you search on Google for “Gloucester Magician” you’ll be surprised to see twenty or thirty magicians advertising as Gloucester-based magicians. However, these magicians aren’t based in Gloucestershire; they simply have lots of pages on their site covering all different areas in the country allowing them to pretend to be from any part of the country.
If you’d like to hire a genuine Gloucester-based close-up magician, look no further! I am based just outside of Gloucester and regularly perform at most Gloucester and Cheltenham venues. Being a regular at such venues means that as soon as I arrive at your event, I am ready to start performing, know exactly where everything is and even have gotten to know the staff at many of the venues. This makes everything run that little bit smoother.
So look out for imitations; there’s only one professional close-up magician in this town!
Want to see me and some other fantastic magicians perform live in a cabaret magic show in Cheltenham? If so, act quickly as tickets are selling fast!
An Evening of Deception is a one-off magic show running on 28th April 2010. I’ve put on a host of my favourite magicians and we’re all performing cabaret magic in the intimate studio space at The Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham.
With only a few tickets left, it’s set to be a great show and I’m confident that tickets will sell out way before the show. See the An Evening of Deception page for more info!
Off the back of a week where I was in Newcastle, London, Sussex and Manchester, it was nice to be able to perform as a close-up magician close to home in Gloucestershire!
Hatherley Manor is just ten minutes from my house and is always a nice venue for a magician to perform at. In fact, this time, two close-up magicians performed there! Laithwaite Wines (a major wine merchant) contacted me through my website and wanted me to arrange for two close-up magicians to perform at their staff party.
I arranged everything within a day of them contacting me and performed at the party last week. Everyone seemed to really enjoy having magicians at the party and a couple of tables in particular invited us back to perform for them again; that’s always a good sign that a magician is doing a good job! Here’s a brief extract from an email that the organiser sent me after the party:
“A HUGE thank you for performing your amazing magic at our party. Everyone had a great time and a having a magician there really added to the event!”
—Kath, Laithwaite Wines
If you’re looking for a Gloucestershire close-up magician (or in fact a magician in any county!), definitely let me know!
Here in Gloucester we’ve been hit pretty badly by the recent snowfall. There’s still about eight inches of snow surrounding my house (think of it as a frozen moat), making it a complete nightmare to get out! The heavy snow in this area made last night’s trek to the Cotswolds to perform as a close-up magician a tough job; but I made it!
I performed magic at the launch party of a pharmaceutical company at the Four Pillars Hotel in the Cotswold Water Park, just outside of Gloucester. It was the first time I’ve performed as a close-up magician at this venue, but definitely hope to perform there again. It’s modern, nicely designed and a perfect environment for a magician to perform. The people at the party really enjoyed my magic and I had a lot of fun performing for them. It was a small event of about 60 people, which is always fun to work at.
Next week is a crazy week as I travel all around the country (Manchester, Newcastle, Sussex, London and more) — it’s unlikely that I’ll actually return home at all for about a week, starting this coming Thursday … that’s the fun life of a close-up magician!
I’ll be sure to post updates on the road. Firstly though, I have to organise a conference for magicians starting this weekend (more on that in my next post).
All this week BBC Radio Gloucestershire are doing a series on me. Tune at at approximately 9.45am to John Rockley to hear me talk about my life as a magician and hear me performing magic live on air for the presenter. You can listen live here:
For those who aren’t in the UK, I’ll try to get an MP3 put together at the end of the week-long series.
If you are visiting my website after listening to me on the radio, you might like to check out more about my magic at my close-up magician page.

Hiring a wedding magician for your wedding is a great way to make your event stand out.
I have performed as a wedding magician across the country, but as there are dozens of fantastic wedding venues in my hometown of Gloucester, I am frequently asked to perform locally. So, if you’re looking for a Gloucester wedding magician, look no further!
Of course, I travel anywhere in the UK, so please do get in touch if you’re getting married somewhere other than Gloucester!

When hiring a magician, it’s certainly not essential to hire a local magician. Most magicians will travel a reasonable distance to a gig (and in particular, I am one of the few magicians that does not inflate my price when required to travel in the UK). In fact, I regularly travel all across the country to perform magic at weddings, parties and other events.
However, as I am based just outside of Gloucester, if you’re looking at hiring a magician in Gloucestershire, it may be of interest to visit my magician contact page and get in touch. I have performed magic at most of the major locations in Gloucester and have been featured in pretty much all of the Gloucestershire press (including websites, radio, local papers and local television news). So, if you’re looking at hiring a magician in Gloucester for your wedding, party or other event, please get in touch!
I’ve put together a specific Gloucester magician page in case you need any further info.
