Wedding Magician Derby


Weddings are a joyful occasion and when you hire an experienced magician in Derbyshire for your special day, laughter is sure to ensue. Whether I perform magic tricks or family-friendly comedy, my goal is always the same: to make people laugh with astonishment and amazement.

When it comes time to plan your wedding entertainment, there’s nothing quite like hiring a magician. From entertaining adults with amazing magic tricks to performing family-friendly comedy, my goal is always the same – make everyone laugh! For that reason alone you should hire me as your magician and I guarantee they’ll be entertained from start to finish. You can walk away knowing that all of their guests will have an unforgettable experience when they leave after your wedding.

The biggest event in most people’s lives has got to be their wedding day – after finally finding “the one” or getting engaged then planning this incredible moment becomes our top priority (or at least under consideration) but what about the party afterward? Sure we could just throw some music on and but you need a spark something different to excite and delight your guests something memorable and unique like a close-up entertainer.

Not only will you have the pleasure of spending time with your guests and family members during the reception or breakfast, but they’ll also be entertained by a contemporary professional wedding magician!

Guaranteed to bring friends and family together, create laughter, perfect moments for photos. Spark the energy between lulls with Table Magic and as a mind reader for a wedding, no one will forget

Magician Derby Corporate Events

I offer refined and elegant entertainment that will wow everyone in the room with awesome showmanship! For example, I might entertain guests at an exhibition stand or drinks reception.

The magic in the room will be electrifying when you hire me for your next event! I use close-up illusions that let everyone feel like they’re part of the show. And because my tricks are family-friendly, there’s something fun to please every member of all ages at any celebration or corporate party—whether it’s an awards night, after dinner entertainment, a birthday gathering with friends and family––or even just at home on Halloween.

I’m not just another corporate magician; I excel as a Magician Derby who has been performing amazing table magic since 2000- this is more than 20 years ago now. My events have included award nights after-dinner parties and other private occasions

House Parties can be a tricky thing to host. You are constantly on edge, wondering who will turn up and if it’ll be fun or not. But I have the perfect solution! Hiring me as your close-up magician means you don’t need to worry about entertainment– my skills ensure that your party is one of those people will talk about forever.


What type of Derby magician are you?


I mostly perform close-up and parlor magic. I love performing at weddings, corporate events, and parties like Christmas!


How long will you perform your close-up magic at my event in Derby?


This depends on the needs of your event. I typically do a few hours, but it could be longer or shorter depending on what’s needed for that evening!


How much do you charge to perform close-up magic?


Haven’t you always wanted to see a magician in person? All the fun, wonder, and amazement! If so, then I’m your guy. My name is Harry Houdini even though I’ve been dead for over 100 years now. With my close-up magic show, all of that can be yours at only £350+. It’s not just any old boring performance either – it’s one with pizzazz and flair where anything goes as long as we’re having fun together 😉
