What kind of events do you attend?

We have performed thousands of shows to children and their parents for all manner of events; children’s birthday parties, weddings, christenings, end of term parties, graduations, fetes and garden parties, military events, Christmas and Easter parties and many more besides.

Do you do themed shows?

Many of our clients theme their children's parties.  Let us know as we can often adapt our shows to fit in.

Better still...why not have a Magic Wanda or Professor Potty theme?

We'd like a Virtual Show - is this possible?

Yes!  We offer Virtual Shows using the Zoom platform which means that you can have a magic show with your child's friends and family...even if they live on the other side of the world!

Our shows are very interactive and all the children (and adults) can join in. 

It really is great fun!  Ask for details.

Do you use live animals?

We love animals, but a party can be a stressful environment for them - so can transporting them in very hot or cold weather.  However, our puppets Cheeky the monkey and Dexter the dog are VERY memorable and loveable and are a real hit with children!

Do you have references?

For your re-assurance we both hold current DBS checks (formally CRB)

We have countless genuine references from recent clients and are happy to share these with you. 

Many of our clients re-book us every year.  We pride ourselves in being professional, from the moment that you contact us, through to the end of the party. 

When you book, you’ll receive written confirmation and a courtesy call before the party to makes sure everything runs smoothly.

Can you perform outdoors?

Yes…we can and these shows are great fun, but please check with us first though, as we may need to make special arrangements.

Can you do walkabout/strolling entertainment?

We do this every year at fetes and corporate events.  Why not combine a session of walkabout balloon modelling, greeting and welcoming guests, followed by a fabulous family magic show at an appointed time?  We love being part of a happy day, with fun for the whole family.

Can you entertain grown-ups too?

Absolutely!  Why should the children have all the fun?
We have performed our grown-ups magic all over the world, on exclusive cruise-liners and for Magic Circle events - See our sister website for all the details.
