Private Party Magician

Add magic to your private party

These days we lead such busy lives – when we’re juggling family, work, and everything in between, the opportunities to get all our loved ones in the same place at the same time can be few and far between. So, when you do throw a party – whether it’s for a special occasion or just to bring people together – you’ll want to add magic to your private party

Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary in a country manor, marking a significant birthday with a sit-down dinner at your favourite restaurant, or just getting everyone together for some pre-Christmas drinks at home, magic is a fantastic way to add some extra sparkle. People never forget those ‘wow’ moments, and magic certainly offers those in abundance, leaving your guests wondering “how on earth did he do that?”!

Bring your guests together

Close up magic is a fantastic ice breaker at private parties. If the only thing that some guests have in common is the fact that they know you, it can sometimes make it a little daunting for them to mix and mingle. Of course, you can introduce everybody, but what’s really needed is a shared experience that sparks a conversation. By working my way around the room, performing magic to small groups of people, I’ll create the buzz that will draw your guests together. Curiosity will get the better of any awkwardness and, before you know it, everyone is happily engrossed in conversation.

Keep them entertained

The key to a great private party is a lively atmosphere – the last thing you want is for people to run out of conversation and for things to go a little flat. As well as delicious food and drink and upbeat music, magic is a fantastic way to keep the energy levels high. 

If you’ve opted for a sit-down dinner, I can entertain guests before or after their food arrives. When venues are catering to a large group, some tables will, unfortunately, end up waiting longer for their food to arrive than others. Astounding magic tricks at the tables are a great way to keep them entertained. The last people to be served won’t even notice their food hasn’t arrived yet because they’re so focused on my performance. 

Alternatively, why not add a real showbiz feel to your private party with a cabaret act? I’ve travelled around the world performing for celebrities and big brands, and I can bring the same mix of magic, mentalism, audience participation and even a few circus tricks to your guests. My routine is guaranteed to thrill people of all ages and create a truly memorable occasion. Take a look at my videos here to see for yourself.

And don’t forget, if you’re trying to think of an unusual birthday present for someone special, you could also surprise them with magic lessons as a gift.  

Whether you’re inviting 300 people or 30 people, add magic to your private party is ensure it’s an event that your guests will be talking about for years to come. Contact me to find out more.
