South Cerney Magician

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.

Milton Keynes Magician

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.

Cotswolds Magician

I recently performed at a house party to celebrate a 21st birthday party at Moreton-in-Marsh in the Cotswolds. I perform in the Cotswolds a lot and always enjoy working near to home.

One of the guests hired me on the spot to work at his next company event, which is always a great compliment for a magician. I received this really nice email from the lady who booked me after the party:

Thank you for entertaining everyone at our daughter’s 21st birthday party. Everyone thought you were amazing and you helped the evening to be an enormous success! I know one of my friends has already booked you for his event after meeting you at the party. I’m so glad I found you!
—Wendy Nursall, Draycott, Gloucestershire

Performance Marketing Awards 2012

On Tuesday night, I returned to Park Lane to perform at the Performance Marketing Awards at the Grovesnor House. Over 800 guests from the marketing industry attended the event and I performed close-up magic during the dinner. As someone who used to work in marketing before I quit to be a close-up magician, it was interesting to see my two worlds combine!

This was one of the biggest, most lavish events that I have performed at in the past few months and it was an incredibly well organised event. Here’s a note that I recevied the morning afterwards from one of the organisers:

“The feedback I received was that you were awesome! Many thanks for being so professional on the night!” —Hannah Langfield, Event Manager
Worcester Magician

This weekend I was booked to perform at the Worcester Warriors Rugby Club in Worcester for a 60th birthday party. Another magician had recommended me because he wasn’t able to make it that night. It’s always nice to be recommended by magicians that I have worked with as it tells me that they enjoy what I do.

Over 110 people were at the party, which also had a disco and a Michael Buble impersonator. The Worcester Warriors Rugby Club was a really nice venue to work at; very modern with plenty of room. Here’s an email I just received from the couple who booked me:

“We and our guests thoroughly enjoyed your magic. I lost count of the number of guests who told us that you were amazing! Thank you so much and it was great to meet you.” —Dee and Malcolm, Worcester

I don’t work that much in Worcester, especially considering I live nearby, so it’s always nice to work there!

Cirencester Magician

I recently performed at a wine bar in Cirencester for a birthday party. It was a fancy dress party and the guests went all out! So much so that I felt a little underdressed in my suit!

After the party, Lucy (the lady who booked me) sent me the following note:

We’re so glad we booked you for our party. You were such a success and our friends are still talking about how great you were. You made sure he got round to everyone in the party and his tricks left us speechless wondering how you did it. A very talented magician and a lovely bloke as well!
—Lucy Loquette, Cirencester, Gloucestershire

Lucy and her husband are coming to see me in An Evening of Deception in Cheltenham next year. I’m looking forward to seeing them there.

Gloucestershire Magician

This weekend, I performed at an event in Newham-on-Severn, Gloucestershire. The downside of being a Gloucestershire magician is the amount of traveling I have to do, so I love working close to home! To be able to finish a show and then be home 20 minutes later is a joy that can’t be explained in words!

Last Sunday I performed at a garden party in Newham-on-Severn, Gloucestershire. Guests were mingling in the garden and sat at tables, enjoying the buffet. Here’s a quick note that I received the next day from Chris, the organiser of the party:

Thanks for working your magic at my garden party, strolling from group to group and captivating even the most cynical of our guests. Your card tricks were stunning, and the “dice in a box” trick had everyone baffled!
—Chris Saunders, Newnham-on-Severn, Gloucester
Oxford Magician

This weekend, I performed close-up at a joint 40th birthday party in Great Milton, near oxford. While I don’t blog about every show I’ve performed, this is one that stands out as the crowd were especially fun that night.

I performed for two hours, mingling with the 150 or so guests. I performed magic with cards and coins and got asked back to perform for several of the groups again, which is always a good sign that they enjoyed it.

The day after the party, I received a really nice email from one of the ladies who booked me. Here’s a very small extract from her email:

We just wanted to say a BIG thank you from us both for Saturday night. All our friends commented on what a fantastic magician you were – and are still talking about “how did he…”. —Nicky, Oxford

I don’t work all that often in Oxford, but as it’s not far from Gloucester, I’m always happy to do so! So, if you’re looking for a close-up magician in Oxford, please get in touch!

Stroud Magician

I recently performed magic in Stroud for a 30th birthday party. I was the surprise element of the party and performed for a couple of hours, mingling with the guests. At several points in the evening, I had almost everyone at the party crowding around me as I performed magic for the birthday girl. It was a lot of fun!

Here’s a brief extract from an email I received from the lady that booked me:

Andi, you were wonderful at our daughter’s 30th birthday party. Truly magic – all our friends with us that evening are still talking about your great tricks, done right under their noses, you really amazed them! We will be calling on you again for our next special party. Many thanks. — Mandy Free, Stroud

Gloucester Magician – feedback

This week I performed for well-known Gloucester-based web hosting company, Fasthosts Internet Ltd. Their accounting team were having a teambuilding day at the Hatton Court Hotel in Gloucester and the Chief Finance Officer asked me to come along to entertain the team for an hour or so before their meal.

Here’s an email I received commenting about my performance:

“I know everyone enjoyed the event and meeting you. Everyone kept talking about the tricks and this served to open and liven up the evening. I will certainly recommend you if I know of anyone else looking for any entertainment etc. Once again, many thanks for the fun evening!
