I organised a very last minute come dine with me party with my friends and wanted to hire a magician, Alex and George reached out to me and luckily Alex was free (with only a days notice!) Alex has amazing showmanship, he’s absolutely hilarious and had us in stitches the whole time he was at my house whilst also kept us amazed with his magic. We all had such an amazing time, and if my food hasn’t put me in first place, Alex definitely has! Would definitely recommend and have him or George at my next party! Thank you again so so so so much for coming and considering it was so last minute! Xxx More...

Great entertainment at our recent family BBQ and enjoyed by all, including the children. Some very good tricks, lots of laughs and incredible close up magic. Excellent.

Attended one of Mindsways events this week in London. Excellent in every respect; good communication before, joining instructions with all relevant arrival details and good communication after the event.

I went to the psychological artistry day last week. Fantastic day. I'd been trying to get to one for a few years after seeing George and Alex run a short introductory workshop. It was well worth the wait. Firstly, everything was done very professionally. Plenty of pre-course email communication just to confirm timings and travel details. Even a link to the closest car park. Small things but make the day so much easier. The content was superb, it's a very relaxed style of delivery which I like. Alex and George come across as very knowledgable yet humble which makes connecting with the group so much easier. I learned what I wanted to learn, the content was what I was hoping for. The day was followed up with more emails the next day with some additional study material. Overall I was expecting a lot from the course and was left feeling that they over-delivered on their promises. I will definitely go to more of their courses in the future and would easily recommend it to my peer group. More...

I attended a one day workshop yesterday - and loved every moment of it! George and Alex kept the group (there were about 25 of us) engaged, entertained and surprised throughout. They shared some great tricks and techniques (coupled with scientific and intellectual explanations) that all of us could understand, learn and adapt to suit our own audiences. Great people, wonderful ethics and fabulous entertainment. And a great bunch of fellow students too! Thoroughly recommend More...

Not mind control, but clever deception and environment control, all very amusing / intriguing / entertaining / enjoyable in itself, but enhanced greatly with many tricks of showmanship, with everything being explained well by end of the day. And with all props but one being inexpensive to acquire, one is enabled to go home and entertain others in turn in the same way after only a little outlay, preparation and practise, As I say, not mind control, but so often giving the appear of such to the uninitiated. And a few simple props to take home and start amusing / confounding others with straight away. And all, so we're told with the mental health benefits of regaining a child's way of seeing the world and of having fun it in, also releasing creative potential no matter how long ago stifled. Also the team bonding effect was a great unexpected bonus for me. And the price for the fun-packed day was reasonable too !! George and his son Alex also understand well the power of understanding and working with what is known as The Hero's Journeys (or The Shero's Journey). I suggest Googling this and then asking George and Alex about this !! My only problem has been this data entry website which has now crashed on me many times -- DO SELECT ALL and COPY frequently, for anything other than a short review !! More...

Just a brief note of thanks to George and Alex for helping to get my party off to such a good start. I know everyone loves a “bit of magic” but there were many very favourable comments about the great entertainment they provided.

I shall certainly remember them for the future.

Had a great day with George and Alex of Mindways. I now have some great ideas that I can incorporate into my workshops to help to get people to see how they can break down their own belief systems and widen their horizons. I would highly recommend the Mindways events. More...

Had the pleasure of attending one the workshops in Birmingham and boy was it worth the dawn call for! Always intrigued to have my perceptions and beliefs challenged and George and Alex certainly tapped into this very quickly! The delivery was genuine and from a place of real authenticity. Alex sharing his "failed magician" story was most humbling and yet struck a real chord in the true power of storytelling. The intimacy of the group created its own learning stickiness and the end of day revelations to the many tricks and mind games that had occurred throughout the day was well worth the wait. And the ticket price! An interesting and slightly quirky venue only added to the sense of intrigue and mystique that was on offer from the very likeable father and son combo. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable ands rewarding day. Thanks again for all those 'no way' moments, fellas ;-) More...

I went along to the with absolutely no preconceptions, or even a clue as to how the day would progress, and came away inspired to produce workshops and information days for our clients with the benefit of a bit of magic thrown in!! I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day - and got to meet some lovely people, too, including father and son team, George and Alex. Their passion for their craft, their unpretentious delivery of their content and their humour make for a truly entertaining and enlightening day. Highly recommended!! More...

A most entertaining, informative and fun day. George and Alex are so generous at sharing their skills and knowledge of a subject that is otherwise quite difficult to access. Their enthusiasm to help others add a bit of magic into their repertoire is infectious! Thank you so much for a great day. Thoroughly recommended! More...

THUMBS ON YOUR BOTTOMS ~ How often do you hear that instruction on a Tuesday afternoon? Yesterday was not only an eye opener but a mind expander, as I joined George Rowley and his son Alex of Mindsways for a fascinating day of "Oooohs and Aaaahs". George and Alex are Psychological Artists ~ they work with the artistry of the Magician, bringing magic into practical purpose and deploying it liberally within a work environment. Perceptions, preconceptions, presumptions, assumptions, tired old habits and entrenched ways have to fall apart in the face of what these guys do, and share. We discussed and explored the Heroes journey, which is the "default" of good storytelling. This is probably where I will get the most value from the work we did, as these days, I am called upon to tell the "stories" of others in my work as a Civil Celebrant, and also, as you many of you know. . . I tell the stories through my art. Now, I am familiar with MMI's (multiple moments of interest) and Black Swans and how to use the Pen of Influence, I know exactly why the giraffe was chosen at random, and understand why we are encouraged to boo and cheer. I now have my own "magic kit" which includes a piece of tinfoil, two corks and a length of special "magicians rope", plus a small envelope of secrets. . . which I must not share! To any of you who work with other people, in an environment which needs a little light letting in. . . .check George and Alex out and they will throw your windows wide open. . . .and have a LOT of fun in the process. In the words of sir Isaac Newton, "If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants" . I am now off to practice my "thumbs on bottoms "trick with two corks! I'll leave you to ponder on that one! Alison Knox ~ Artist~ Writer ~ Civil Celebrant ~ Keeper of bees More...

What a wonderful day of fun, learning, insight - and perceptual mystery (cue "Twilight Zone" music. ;-) Well done George and Alex - I can't imagine anyone attending this course and not having a most enjoyable day. A day from which they will bring home lots of new skills too - I know I have. Awesome! :-) More...

I met George & Alex some years ago when I wanted to learn magic. So it was good to go on their psychology and magic course once again. This was a great refresher for me and sparked my interest in magic once more. George has a way of performing the tricks which are illusions that ultimately show you how the mind/brain works or doesn't. The father and son team are two of the nicest people you could meet offering a wealth of knowledge taboot! Working in the hypnotherapy industry, George and Alex bring to my world a totally unique perspective that helps me help my clients on many levels. I could describe this as getting in their psyche via the back door so to speak. I have no hesitation in recommending MindSways. it's fun as well. Many thanks, Philip. More...

There are few courses I go on that I can rate 5* but these two are worth every * given! Their courses are informative and great fun and you have a bag of great tools to use in your life and work on leaving each time. Peter and I have been on many of their courses and hosted them too and I can honestly say each and every one is unique and a pleasure to attend! WELL RECOMMENDED! More...

Q&A

George has always loved magic, comedy and entertainment, and has used it to help people on their special occasions across the country for the past 30 years.

Alex has grown up around magicians and entertainers. He first performed magic at the age of 11 to an audience at the Birmingham School of Acting. This is where he discovered his love of creating fun and laughter for other people.

They both spend their time travelling across the country to entertain people, help bring laughter into their lives and bring the spark of magic to any party or event.

We want to make sure your guests have a great time, get them laughing and remembering your party.
We offer:
Mix and mingle/Sitting or standing/Walkabout – We go around the room and perform our mix of magic to small groups.
Table Magic – We perform a variety of tricks for the guests sitting around a table
Mystery Room – A unique talking point where your guests drop in for an intimate short performance that gets them excited, laughing and amazed.
Children’s Magic – Separate from the rest of the event, we can gather together a group of children and keep them entertained using age-appropriate magic for about half an hour.
Shows – Depending on situation, we have a variety of our live shows that can be performed to all the guests at once e.g. comedy magic, spooky mind-reading etc.
We will work with you whatever your party situation is.

We love getting to have a laugh, make jokes and providing entertainment for people along the way just makes it even more fun and rewarding for us. We love being able to share our magic with people and add fun, mystery and surprise to their parties.

The core of our business is a love of magic. The surprise, wonder and sheer enjoyment that it generates is amazing - we love the glint you can see in people’s eyes when they know you are a magician.
We are a father and son duo and together, we decided to start Mindsways, where we would put George’s training and performance expertise together with Alex’s love of storytelling and acting.
Mindsways is about creating moments of laughter, awe, wonder and true amazement. By helping people to have a truly magical experience, whether it’s for a birthday party, a wedding, an anniversary, work-do or anything else, we feel we are truly living up to why we started Mindsways.

We are a pair of professional magicians, making sure everyone has a great time.
You can use us to make your guests gasp and cheer with delight, bring an air of the mysterious and surprising to your event and add a spark of something unique, memorable and entertaining.
You’re in safe hands with us. Together, we’ve had over 20 years of experience in delivering magic in all kinds of different situations and environments.
We are always professional, courteous and on time. You can rely on us to show up, entertain your guests, be flexible for your needs and move out of the way for what’s really important - which is, of course, you and your party!
