Unbelievably, bloody brilliant, astonishing magic.

My card was frozen in a block of ice – it’s utter madness but sheer brilliance.

Sir Ian McKellen

One of the finest purveyors of the magical arts I have ever seen.

Sir Ian McKellen

I was watching so intensely but you still managed to take my watch. Irritatingly marvellous.

Hugh Grant

Chris exceeded all expectations at our daughter’s Wedding! His sensational magic tricks brought amazement, laughter and sheer incredulity to both the Reception and then the Lunch in equal measures. Whole tables were gripped – fascinated by what they saw across a whole gambit of ‘impossibilities’ – resulting in more relaxed, fun and enjoyable scenarios. With his vibrant personality, you could ‘feel’ the tempo changing as he swept through the huge room with 120 guests, creating a real “buzz”. The Wedding was undoubtedly enhanced hugely by Chris. He is indeed a true Magician, leaving a trail of amused, incredulous and open mouths! And we thank him profoundly for that. We highly recommend him

Andrew & Babs Mitchell

Thank you Christopher, you really made our wedding day extra magical. We always knew exactly where Christopher was because all you could hear was clapping and laughter and cheers of amazement from our guests! Christopher is a marvellous magician as well as being charming and personable. Can’t recommend highly enough. I am still baffled how my calendar ended up in a block of ice.

Mr & Mrs Ward

Dear Christopher, it was a pleasure and delight to have you entertain our guests for our Golden wedding anniversary. You absolutely knew how to work the room with sophistication and charm, making our guests feel completely at ease and completely speechless with your magic. I was captivated from start to finish. I could see and hear every table enjoying your performance, and you captured the mood of the room perfectly.

I am truly baffled as to how the card I signed ended up inside a block of ice. You are in no doubt an incredibly talented gentleman; one of the best magicians I have seen in a very long time.

Audrey Thompson

Hi Christopher, thank you for entertaining us on Saturday. All of us were absolutely amazed at your fantastic magic – it really made the evening and was the icing on my birthday cake. Amazing and brilliant professional deception at its very best.

Nish Patel

We booked Christopher Whitelock for an engagement at a dinner we had for our partners from Russia. The evening was a great success and our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We would certainly book Christopher again and have no hesitation in recommending him to other companies who are thinking of organising a similar event. Thank you Christopher.
