Are you thinking of hiring a magician for you next event? Look no further because Phil Taylor is your man. Phil is a close up magician doing amazing magic tricks right in front of your eyes. He will bend coins, swallow needles, and do amazing things with everyday objects *LIVE* to create the right impression for your event. Phil knows how to correctly address your guests and approach people in order for them to have the best experience at your event.

Phil Taylor has worked in and around the Midlands for many clients and enjoys showing his magic skills off – Phil is a light hearted person and will bring with him his sense of humor, lifting the mood so your guest’s can get on enjoying the occasion.

Phil has also entered the world of gaming for a greater understand of how crooked games can be fixed – He will demonstrate the skills it takes to win at any game of poker and show your guests why you should never play at the tables. With tales of how con-men hustle, trick and manipulate people, but don’t worry this is only a demonstration and you never know may save your guests a fortune in the future. Whatever the outcome it’s a great talking point for people and I’m sure your guest’s will be talking about Phil’s magic for years to come.

If you have the time why not ask Phil about his palm reading act. Phil has been studying palm reading ever since he was a little boy and knows a few thing about palms – the reading will be a light, up-beat and he would never dream of telling your guests anything other than their own good fortune, palm reading really does go down well and if magic isn’t for your guests they may just like this as an alternative option – but as ever its always down to the situation and if your guest would like to experience something a little different.

Wow where to start?! Phil was amazing from start to finish from the minute he entered the room. I booked phil as a surprise for my other half’s 40th birthday and I’m so pleased I did. Every adult & child in the room was blown away with phil, messages the next day talking about him and even asking for his details for them to book. I honestly can not recommend phil enough for any event/party, he is perfect and exactly what my fella dreamt of for his party. Thank you to phil for being as amazing as he was with everyone and for putting the perfect touch on a fab night. Can’t wait to book and see him again!!

Phil performed a wonderful magic show for a really special small group party, at the high field house hotel for us in June. It was so important to get this event just right, a reunion of friends who have travelled from far and wide and very rarely get the chance to meet up altogether.
Phil was good at keeping in touch with me, in planning the details and performing a show that was well suited to us. He is talented, polite and a good entertainer.
Thank you Phil.

Phil did exactly what you'd want. He just moved around chatting naturally, but everywhere he went a small crowd gathered and became really engaged with what was going on. After a bit there'd be a burst of applause and laughter and he'd moved on to new sets of guests. He made the party go with a swing - we can strongly recommend him.

Phil was hired as a surprise for me for my 30th birthday party and what a brilliant surprise he was!! He was amazing!! He spent time with all the guests, performing amazing magic that just astounded them. I was mesmerised by him and can't recommend him enough for events. Very friendly too and made everyone feel completely at ease. A lot of the guests asked for his details for upcoming events. So thank you so much for adding such fun, laughter and amazement to the evening!!

I got in touch with Phil to see if he could do my friends 30th birthday party and I am so happy that he was the one I chose. I can't recommend him enough. From the moment he got there he had people under his spell and absolutely amazed us all. People were raving about him all evening and have asked for his details for their events. He flowed through the guests with ease and I liked how he didn't steal the attention away from the party but was subtle to gain people's attention and to wow them. It is obvious he is passionate and truly loves what he does. He does not disappoint. Thanks again Phil

Phil is a superb entertainer and his stand up show was truly magical. Phil was invited to join us at our Garden Party (2 x 50th birthdays and our 'Happy Ever After'), where we had approximately 80 guests to enthrall, entertain and help to break the ice. He is engaging, friendly and above all an incredible magician; his tricks blew everyone away and the feedback we had from our guests was amazing. We would highly recommend Phil and have no hesitation in using his services again, should the occasion arise. Paul & Melanie Bonas

We booked Phil for our Ruby wedding anniversary party at Beoley Village Hall, Redditch, Worcs. on 10th June 2017. Booked him on the basis of reviews and very reasonable rates and were not disappointed. We had around 80 guests and Phil went round the tables performing his magic and was truly amazing. He has real skill in his craft together together with a lovely manner and the ability to communicate and engage with people that adds something special to the party atmosphere. We can highly recommend him for any kind of celebration/occasion. Thank you so much Phil for helping to make our evening so special. Helen and Dave Gardner.

Absolutely incredible service! Phil performed for us at a graduation ball event held in Birmingham Town Hall, his professionalism was fantastic throughout from booking through to the end of the night. His tricks left guests astounded (including myself). I would undoubtedly recommend Phil to anyone organising an event and will certainly look to Phil for future events which I organise. Phil, thank you so much for coming to the event, look forward to seeing you soon!

We had fantastic birthday evening. Phil made it extra special for my wife's 50th Birthday which fell at the beginning of April. All the guests from young to old enjoyed and raved about him. Well done. Oh and thanks to Phil's advice and flexibility at the initial contact, it helped reassure us all would go to plan. Well done again and I would definitely recommend him. Cheers.

Phil performed at a private party for us. We took a punt on Phil based on his professional website on the basis of how someone does something is how someone does everything and were thoroughly rewarded. Phil was engaging, informational and funny and the magic was world class. Brilliant tricks performed by a master illusionist. A true professional who delighted everyone, young and old. Phil - you made our party a night to live long in the memory for everyone who attended. Thank you very much.

We hired Phil for an anniversary party and our friends haven't stopped telling us how great he was! He was completely professional but also instantly likeable and engaging whoever his audience was. He just mingled in and his tricks left everyone completely amazed! An entertaining addition to any gathering. Easy and straightforward to book with good communication beforehand. We hope to be seeing him again!

We hired Phil for a family gathering of around 35 people to celebrate my sons 21st. His patter was such that he is instantly likeable and put small groups at ease, then wowed them with his skills, still no idea how the Stymie pen trick works. Thanks again Phil, everyone was thoroughly entertained and had nothing but good words to say An ideal ice break at parties, I'd have no hesitation in recommending Phil.

Brilliant way to get your party or event started. Amazing close up magic that will take everyone's breath away. Well worth booking.
Phil was really easy to deal with too, turned up early and knew exactly how to engage with people of different ages.
