“Thank you so much for helping make my birthday party so much fun. Everyone commented on how clever your magic was and your presence certainly helped to make the evening flow”
Lets read the above, its a lovely email I received about some recent Birthday Party Entertainment I did for Maureen for her 70th Birthday Party.
As a magician, it’s great when I can provide a way to make a birthday party fun. Every party should be fun, and if its not.. Maybe you haven’t thought through the party entertainment ideas properly. What happens when your guests arrive? Do you have something to keep them entertained, or are they just going to stand around and feel awkward until the main event starts? Do you have a way of bringing together people who might not know each other? And as Maureen said, do you have a way to make sure the party flows?
Having a magician, like myself, at a party is a great way to address all these party problems. As a ‘meet and greet’ magician, I can entertain your guests as they arrive, making them immediately feel welcome, I can then provide all sorts of magic, Table magic for your guests between courses of dinner, mix and mingle magic, where I’ll walk around the groups of guests performing magic for them. This is a great way to bring people together at the party and get them all involved and talking.
I’d be happy to talk to you about any party entertainment ideas you might have for your party, wedding, or corporate event. Just contact me.

Party Entertainment Ideas – Greet Your Guests With A Magician
party entertainment ideas Magician greeting guestsI recently provided Party Entertainment for St Marys School in Ascot. As the party entertainment I provided last year was such a success, and well received, I was pleased that they booked me again for a return visit. The evening was a dinner, during which the pupils at the school presented entertainment for other pupils. I was booked to provide some other entertainment as guests arrived, typically my ‘meet and greet’ which is a great party entertainment idea, performing magic as guests arrive for the evening. It means that your guests don’t arrive and just hover around, feeling a bit left out, or not sure what to do next.
Having an entertainer as your guests arrives makes them feel like the party has already started, even before they get through the door to the main event. I will typically bring together groups of people, showing them some making to start breaking the ice. This means that guests that maybe don’t know each other will start to chat and enjoy each others company, making it a much more relaxed, and enjoyable party for them.
As well as the ‘meet and greet’ for the party, I provided entertainment between courses at the dinner table. Moving between tables performing magic for those sat around the table, this fills those awkward gaps as guests wait for the next course of their meal.
I’d be happy to talk to you about this sort of Party Entertainment, or any other Party Entertainment Ideas you may have, just Contact Me.

Wedding Party Entertainment – Return To Monkey Island
Everybody hopes that the weather on your wedding day is great, sadly sometimes it’s not. In these situations I try and bring as much enjoyment and entertainment to the wedding as I can, it might sound a bit cliché, but I hope I bring my own special bit of sunshine to the wedding.
A recent wedding at Monkey Island on the Thames in Bray, allowed me to do just this. The weather was terrible, but I brightened the day with table magic, mix and mingle magic as the party entertainment for the bride and groom.
Having magic at your wedding provides a great way to bring the two new families together. Be it walk around magic as your guests arrive at the reception and enjoy their drinks before photographs, or, magic around the tables between courses of the wedding breakfast. Magic is a great ice breaker, and gives your wedding guests something to really talk about in the natural pauses of the wedding day.
If you’d like to talk to me about how I can provide party entertainment at your wedding, just Drop Me A Line.

Party Entertainment For Yateley Manor School PTA Charity Ball
I’ve provided Corporate Entertainment and Party Entertainment at numerous events, but its always nice to get a repeat booking for clients that have enjoyed the entertainment ideas I’ve provided for them.
A great example of this was when I was booked again to provide party entertainment for Yateley Manor School Parent Teacher Association’s Charity Spring Ball. The PTA booked me again for their event at Wokefield park, where I provided Magic and entertainment for them.
During the evening I performed Mix and Mingle magic during the drinks reception; this is a great way to keep your guests entertained, bringing together groups of people, and making sure they enjoy the evening. I also provided after dinner entertainment, with table magic and walk around magic. I also provided a ‘bunco booth’; where entertaining scams and confidence tricks are presented and played with guests. Everyone loves this, and watches intently as I run through various things like the classic ‘find the lady’ or the ‘three shell game’. It’s a nice break from traditional magic, and gives guests something to really talk about, and brings everyone together as they enjoy watching the tricks.
The evening was a great success, and I enjoyed providing my Party Entertainment, and Corporate Entertainment Ideas for the evening.
If you’d like to talk to me about providing party entertainment, or corporate entertainment for your event, please just Drop Me A Line or Give Me A Ring and we can discuss how I can help your event be a success.

A Night With The Stars – Corporate Entertainment For The Mayor And Reading Transport
It’s always a pleasure to be Asked Back To Perform Corporate Entertainment for a client again, and when it’s Reading Transports ‘Night With The Stars’ and I have the pleasure of performing my magic for the Mayor of Reading as well, it’s even better.
It’s always difficult for clients to work out good corporate entertainment ideas, How do you keep the guests entertained between courses at dinner? How do make sure guests are entertained before, or after the meal?
Reading transport’s awards evening was very important, a new venue, a new year and a new mayor. Having been booked last year by Reading transport for their awards dinner, I knew exactly how I could help them make this years event, just as great for their guests as last year.
I performed magic for the guests during the dinner, making sure that the evening went smoothly, and everyone had something to talk about with each other throughout the evening. This is a format I’ve used many time for corporate parties, and corporate events. But my skills are limited to just doing table to table magic at the dinner table. I can also provide a whole host of other ideas for your corporate event.
If you’d like some Corporate Entertainment Ideas, or want to book me for a Corporate Entertainment Event just drop me an Email

In the world of party entertainment, and corporate entertainment christmas normally starts right about now, and in some cases, even earlier.

Corporate Party Ideas, Is A Magician One Of Them?
Coming up with Corporate Party Ideas and planning can be quite hard work, how do you create an atmosphere and corporate party that stands out from all the others? Maybe you’re struggling to come up with some corporate christmas party ideas, either for your clients, or your employees. Magic is something that can be great for these types of corporate events. So can I as a Corporate Party Magician, help you?
Corporate parties is another area of my business that keeps me very busy, and its a great environment to be working in. Normally clients will book me to entertain their corporate guests before a main event, perhaps a meal, or some other type of show. I am also sometimes booked myself as the main attraction, providing an after dinner entertainment show, or stand up cabaret type performance. Either way, my job is to make sure that every single guest has an enjoyable evening, and goes away from the corporate party remembering what a great time they had.
Many people engage my services to mix and mingle around the guests before dinner, or other focused part of the evening. I can also provide table magic, before, during or after dinner. My style of close up magic will help the guests are your corporate party relax, and enjoy themselves, and if the guests haven’t met each other before, magic is a wonderful way to break the ice and bring together your guests.
I’ve provided corporate entertainment for many corporate parties and functions, and I’d love to discuss how I can Help You Make Your Corporate Party A Success.
