How to arrange a personalised custom built entertainment package that is just right for your special party… Which is fully guaranteed and at a price that makes you think we've gone mad…

Dear Special Party Arranger,

Thank you for dropping in, it is appreciated.

Many people ask what Clive does, but it is not what Clive does that is important — it's what you want and what is right for you and your special party, so…

Clive custom builds an entertainment package that is just right for you for your big day.

Of course, we are here to help and advise you on your various options, but the decisions are all yours.

Does this really work? Scroll down and read some of the many reviews, well over 100 5-star reviews say it does work very well.

Do you want to cut to the chase and get the ball rolling? Give me a call on 0800-0188118 or 01737-350586 and I will do my very best to help you in any way I can.

Many clients have Clive perform his Mix 'n Mingle magic in a drinks reception, just to start the party in a fun way, magic happens in your guests hands, they often make it happen and the jokes and gags come in quick succession, your guests won't want him to leave - but is that right for you?

You could then enjoy Clive's Table Magic during your banquet perhaps… same quick wit, same polished performance, but less hands-on, eat and watch at the same time if you wish.

After dinner you have so many choices it is hard to cover them all here, but many clients have Clive look after and entertain any guests who choose not to dance. Some have Clive make balloon models for their younger guests during speeches, in short, we help you pick the right options for you, all at a price that won't break the bank.

One more thing. It is important you know about this…

Clive wants you to have the time of your life at your forthcoming party, so if for any reason whatsoever, you do not agree he is the most entertaining magician you have ever seen, just as you would expect from a magician promoted to Member of the Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star (The Magic Circle's highest degree) in January 2012... that your guests give you numerous and positive feedback about his performance…and he is the most helpful and obliging chap you have ever dealt with, then simply tell him on the day and he will cancel your bill and you will not owe him a penny.

Simply put, you agree he's great or he's free.

On this fully guaranteed basis, why not give us a call, let's explore some options or discuss what you have in mind and when it's right for you we can show you how you can quickly book it, but there is no obligation or hard sell, I promise.

We'll even pay for the call (Freephone) 0800-0188118 or (Office) 01737-350586 or (Mobile) 07906-876279

I look forward to talking to you soon.

(Office Manager)

Review of Grown Up  Magic by Maya
5 08/07/2019 Maya

Clive managed to entertain 50+ guests of all ages (my husband's 50th birthday garden party) , even after 5 busy hours our guests were sad to see him leave!
Clive is great magician - no idea how it all works but it is really intriguing! He is also able to sense and bland well with crowds and match his tricks to different tastes and ages (from 3 - 75) very well.
We can recommend Clive to any party wholeheartedly! His contribution to our day was immense!

Clive gave our party a great show, exactly what we wanted for our occasion. The magic was fun and the overall entertainment was enhanced by Clive's "banter" and "one-liners", none of which caused offence to a mixed aged group of guests. Thank you Clive.

Good communication pre-event.

Kept us all entertained from children up to the oldies at a family birthday celebration. There was a lot of “how did he do that?”

Review of Grown Up  Magic by Hilary Hamilton

I booked Clive for my disabled sister’s 70th birthday party. He was very thorough when finding out exactly what my requirements were for the day, and also about the demographics of his audience. It did seem that nothing was too much trouble. On the day Clive arrived ahead of time, he immediately set about talking to everyone that was already there, gauging his tricks and style to the age of the recipient as we had a mixed age group. Clive made a huge fuss of my sister,dedicated a special trick to her and even named it after her - she was thrilled. My youngest guest had fallen over whilst running about in the courtyard and was very distressed, Clive made a special effort to cheer her up which was well received. All in all Clive added greatly to the overall day and I would thoroughly recommend him, and would use his services again.

I booked Clive for my husband's 50th birthday party and was absolutely frilled that I did. He added the best kind of entertainment and his close up magic far excelled what I had expected. All the guests were impressed and all I kept hearing was "have you seen the magician". Clive was the icing on the cake, the cherry on top and all other clichés for that added sparkle. Highly recommended by me and all of our guests. Thank you Clive.

We had the pleasure of Clive attending our recent Christmas Party. Clive is not only an incredible magician but a fantastic entertainer. He engages exceptionally well with the audience and adds an huge amount of humour and laughter to what are some amazing tricks.

Clive is highly skilled at close up magic and throughout the evening we could not work out how the tricks were performed. Clive has a wide range of tricks and will keep the audience entertained for hours.

I would thoroughly recommend his services and look forward to seeing him at work again in the future

5 25/09/2018 Richard King

Clive is a highly professional and extremely talented magician. He is very engaging and amusing. He mixed with my guests and worked the room with consummate ease. Prior to the event Clive took time to understand the profile of my event and guests to ensure the duration of his visit and his material were fitting. Clive’s close-up magic amazed my guests and proved to be a talking point long after he had left. I would recommend Clive without hesitation to help make your event truly memorable.

Review of Grown Up  Magic by Diane Tinkl
5 25/09/2018 Diane Tinkl

Clive was extremely professional but friendly, and put everyone at ease. His magic was outstanding and kept all the guests entertained for many hours. Clive was here early to meet and entertain the guests as they arrived, and stayed until the guests left. Clive undertook a magic show towards the end of the evening which was amazing. We would not hesitate to recommend Clive to entertain for any function, being outstanding value for money.

Review of Grown Up  Magic by Majaz
5 25/09/2018 Majaz

Clive is absolutely amazing. I was pretty last minute in arranging entertainment for my sons first birthday celebrations when I stumbled upon his profile.

He quickly gave me a phone call and explained the process. I had invited over 80 guests (adults) and about 20 children.

Clive was the best entertainment I could have asked for. He engaged with each and every guest (all ages) with his funny tricks and kept them entertained. Every single person at the end of the event was asking me for his details as the also said that he is the best they had seen.

His payment terms are extremely helpful. His guarantee is unique, you don't have to pay him if you are not 100% satisfied. I wish him all the success in the future.

Thank you very much, Clive!

Guest ages ranged from 2 to 85 for my husband's 70th birthday garden party lunch with 70 guests. You guessed it - the only day it rained all summer! In unflappable style, Clive kept everybody amused, amazed and entertained , even though we were all squashed into the house leaving little space for magic. Worth every penny - thankyou Clive.!

Outstanding performance which made my girlfriend’s 30th party particularly special for her. Exhilarating and impressive magic performed to an exemplary standard. Many of our guests will be booking Grown Up Magic for their own special events. The performance was delivered in a subtle and appropriate manner which blended seamlessly and simultaneously with the other components of the evening. We are indebted to Grown Up Magic for making our occasion so spectacular.

From the minute Clive arrived in his signature bright red suit my guests were completely enthralled and amazed. This man is a genius - in fact most guests who experienced his close up magic think he is a wizard!! Clive's Grown Up Magic performance was everything that Clive said it would be and in fact exceeded my expectations.

Birthday Party in Greenwich, London
Very very good, times 1,000,000,000

Clive was very professional throughout the initial contact to the actual party. He was very flexible with our requirements and performed a variety of close up magic to our 22 guests, ranging from 70 to 50 to 10 years old, who were all stunned by the array of magic seen on the night. Thanks again for making my brother's 50th an amazing night for all.

We hired Clive to entertain at my wife's birthday celebration at The Inn @ West End, Woking, Surrey, where we took over the restaurant for the evening.

There was a total audience of 40 friends and family members aged from their early twenties to late seventies and Clive was able to cater for them all the whole evening going from table to table, keeping them enthralled and entertained with such a wide variety of magic.

His delivery, coupled with his personality endeared him to the whole audience, who didn't want him to leave. Anyone who wants a magician should look no further.

I booked Grown up Magic for my daughters 8th birthday party and we all loved it.

Clive, was amazing!
there is close up and there is Clive. I held the card in my hand and it changed, unbelievable. at one time I thought many of my guests had left early, but they were in another room being entertained by Clive. we paid for three hours, and he stayed for six. ( but we were great hosts)

Grown Up Magic replied:
Hi John, Thank you for posting such a nice review, but I want to correct one small detail. You were very wise and booked a long way in front and had probably forgotten what we agreed, which was I would stay until we agreed on the night that it was time for me to leave, with a minimum of three hours. Your guests were asking for more magic, it happens often, and I suggested that if we went next door we wouldn't disturb your singer (who was very good). We were having fun and so I was happy to stay, as we agreed. Looking forward to your next big birthday. Best wishes Clive

Huge success... will definitely be booking again for any further parties.

Review of Grown Up  Magic by Giusi Coppola
3 14/06/2018 Giusi Coppola

We hired Clive for our daughter’s First Communion celebration. We were generally pleased with the outcome and glad we had an entertainer for the event. Was Clive the best we could have? We’re not sure.... most of his magic was very good and some of the tricks left us and our guests ‘puzzled’ (as you do...). It was probably his dry sense of humour and his bizarre jokes that we struggled to be totally happy with. Would we hire him again? I don’t think so. Thank you Clive for turning up and do the best you could anyway.

Grown Up Magic replied:
Dear Giusi, Thank you for taking the time to write a review for me it is appreciated. After some 50 5* reviews on here, I am particularly interested in your comments, always trying to move forward and improve. I am not sure why you found my jokes bizarre, perhaps it was a language thing. With many of your guests being Italian, perhaps I didn't translate as well as I had intended. Anyway, I will give your comments a great deal of thought and see where I can do better. Once again, thank you for sharing on Bark. Best Wishes Clive

Dear Clive,

I want to say a huge thank you to you for your input at our Havana Nights fundraising dinner and dance at the Richmond Hill Hotel. The feedback from all our guests was very positive and was certainly showcased via the fact that you raised more money than last year. Everyone had so much fun particularly saying that you were a highlight of the evening.

We raised over £10,000 as a result of the evening which is fantastic news. This will help us provide support to women and their partners who are facing pregnancy loss and unplanned pregnancies. It will also help us to provide lessons in local schools and youth clubs teaching young people about sex choices and healthy relationships.

Thanks for your support and kind regards

Clive was a different entertainer to what we usually hire, and at first it seemed to be quite a risk .
However, any worries or doubts we had were quickly dispelled in a matter of minutes, and he had everyone enthralled by both his close up magic, and his witty and entertaining banter from the stage.
A must for any future occasion where you are planning an event with a little difference.

Excellent!

From the moment he walked in our front door to the time he left, our entire evening was spent mesmerised by the outstanding Magic show performed for our 30+ guests by an outstanding entertainer that is Clive the Magician. Ours was a house party for a mix of adults and children and we did wonder how it would come together successfully - we need not have worried. Clive subtly mingled with the audience with a superb blend of comedy, truly unbelievable Magic at the highest level. Professional, calm and a true Gent, I would not hesitate to recommend this chap to anybody wanting a different twist to a normal party. Thank you Clive - you were one of my bucket list cross outs and you did not disappoint.

With yesterday afternoon's event still very fresh in my mind, I would like to thank Mr Mysto for entertaining us all with such skill from the moment he entered the venue. The occasion was my husband's 70th Birthday, a sit-down meal for 36 guests, family and friends, including our 5 grandsons- aged 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9. So a mixed bunch! Clive arrived as we were finishing our main course and he spent the first hour performing clever close up magic at each table, peppered with quick off the cuff comments and jokes. Just right whilst enjoying our desserts and coffee, and a relaxed, yet very entertaining way to end our dinner. Then for the next hour, he summoned the boys to sit on their chairs in a row, facing him and all his funny props. This was 'their show', but cleverly tailored to us, the adults too, in fact we didn't move from our seats. The boys laughed,- proper belly laughs- for the whole hour at all Mr Mysto's antics and their laughter was truly catching. They responded and interacted at all times- and when needed, Mr Mysto had full control. Five boys with very different personalities, but he made sure they all had a turn in helping, with skill and sensitivity. Mr Mystos balloon models are amazing. We all laughed at his clever fast coming jokes and our attention and that of the boys did not waiver throughout. Thank you for a most enjoyable two hours and more, before you had to head off to your next venue. ps We first came across Mr Mysto when our daughter- now 29- was at primary school. We enjoyed her birthday show so much that we asked him to entertain us at my husband's 50th birthday party at our home. He did of course do a great job then too- in fact, he made the party and has since been recommended to many! So how lucky were we to find that he had an afternoon space free for Sat Dec 9th 2017, 20 years on!? So from excellent help and advice from Kevin, his PA, on my initial enquiry, to full enjoyment for all ages on the day. We all say Thank You so much. Ken and Nina Read, family and friends.

Clive tailored his act for my wife's birthday with great expertise. All our guests were completely enthralled. The evening was a huge success. Clives close up magic was amazing and left everyone guessing even the most sceptical. Clive has a great personality and he mixed really well. Can't recommend him highly enough. We will be using him again.

We had Clive to entertain our guests at our daughters wedding and he went down a storm. We had lots of comments on what a good idea to have a magician and how good he was. He entertained the children away from the speeches while they were taking place. It was an amazing day and we are glad we had Clive to help make it more memorable for our guests.

What a guy - Clive did an amazing job for my 70th birthday, greeting guests and performing table magic at dinner with a brilliant repertoire of mystifying and mind boggling magic (my words, not his!!). Not only a magician but amusing as well. Everybody thought he was great.

Hi Clive

I just wanted to thank you for such an amazing party on Saturday - Freddie absolutely loved every second of it and it was by far the best children's party I have ever been to.

It was also the least stressful party I have ever had to host - it was great to have an entertainer present for the duration of the party and thank you as well for involving the adults whilst the children were having their tea. Paul and the other adults were blown away by some of the magic tricks you showed them!

I downloaded the photos last night that were taken and I have never seen so many children with such amazing expressions on their faces - the genuine enjoyment on their faces was so apparent!

The finale involving the rabbit was brilliant too - it was highly amusing listening to the children while they were trying to work out if it was a real rabbit. Freddie genuinely thinks he performed a trick that you have been practicing for ages and not yet been able to do. He thinks he is the bees knees and he honestly believes that without him the rabbit wouldn't have appeared which is just a magical thing for him and for me to see as his mum!

I was at another children’s party (football party) on Sunday with some of the children who came to Freddie's and I had several of the parents say to me that their child had gone home on such a high and said it was the best party they had ever been to!

I will be in touch shortly to hopefully book Anya's party on 2nd August - I just want to let a couple of days go by and make sure it is what she wants - it certainly is what I want for her!

I really can't thank you enough and will certainly recommend you to anyone who ever speaks to me!

Best wishes

Clive, You didn't disappoint at my wedding yesterday. After being dumbfounded by your magical skill at a friends wedding, you were the only person we wanted to entertain our closest friends and family on our special day. You certainly left an impression with everyone, young and old. Thank you so much, for travelling so far, being 100% committed to what you do, staying so enthusiastic from the first minute to the last and for staying on so late into the night, despite your long journey. I hope I have the opportunity to see you in action again in the future.

Clive Hyams was a joy to work with.
He kept all of our guests very entertained by wowing him with his amazing magic tricks.
The feedback from the evening suggested that he was the best part of the evening for some of our guests.
We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to add some 'magic' to their event.
Thanks once again.

Clive promised me, when I booked him that he would work his socks off. He certainly kept his promise! He did not stop all evening.

The guests loved him and the few kids who were there were also fully entertained.
I have to admit I've never been a great fan of "close up" magic, but I was blown away with his incredible ability.
To sum up, he is a true professional.

Review of Grown Up  Magic by Clive Hyams
5 13/04/2017 Clive Hyams

Dear Clive,
May I send to you a huge thank you from me and my family for such a delightful time on Saturday.
You looked super and your entertaining skills were perfect.
Your tricks very memorable especially the levitation which Lily could not believe.
The guests were saying to her that there was no plank!
You have a brilliant sense of humour so subtle that sometimes it took us some moments to work out what you said.
On the whole Clive your appearance made the party – your audience might not have been too vocal when you were there because they have never experienced magic like it before.
In a way they were in a slight state of shock.
There was plenty of discussions about your tricks after you left.
I shall certainly recommend you to others. Thank you again.

Clive performed his amazing close-up magic at my 60th Birthday celebration last night. He worked the room and interacted with my guests in a very professional manner. His tricks and techniques are truly "magic" and we were still talking about him at 4am this morning! Highly recommended to make your event extra special.

Very professional, very good at his job. Arrived and got to work straight away, confounding everybody, even the hardcore sceptics. His close up magic is just that; magic! I had 54 people at my party and the operative word on the day was, amazing, how did he do that? He even did the same magic trick again when challenged on how he did it. I have had many calls today, two days after the party and that word amazing is still being used. A very funny guy who had us all enthralled right up to the point where he had to go home..

Highly recommended

Get Clive in to entertain you, your clients, your guests and/or relations and you will not be disappointed. He offers value for money, bespoke, entertainment that will leave you aghast and awestruck. I've lost count how many times I've shared details of his magic hoping someone may have an answer..."how did he do that!? :)" He tailors his presentation to suit your needs and then delivers, easy as that......I can't recommend him highly enough.

Please pass on to Clive my apologies for not being able to thank him properly last Saturday when he did a splendid 'gig' for our Fetcham U3A Christmas Party. My members simply could not see how he managed to perform his magic close up without anybody spotting what he did and were most impressed. It was a very busy afternoon for me and he left before I could say how much we all appreciated his art! I do hope we will be able to invite him to join us again in the future - it made a refreshing and very welcome change.

Clive was punctual and generous with his timing. He certainly dressed in a way that identified him as an entertainer / artist. Clive lived up to his word in that his close-up magic performances really did draw disparate groups of friends together and helped create a great atmosphere.

Whilst I was busy mixing with our guests, so didn’t see much of his magic, but every one of our guests that joined us commented on how good Clive was. They were left in awe / wonderment at what they had witnessed. The children also really enjoyed the little show Clive put on for them.

In the end, Clive was true to his word and delivered exactly what he had planned and whilst he was not the lowest cost quote, we are confident we made the right choice. Clive’s service/performance was worth every penny. We will be recommending Clive to the assortment of friends who will be celebrating significant birthdays and anniversaries in the coming months and years.

We've just used Stunning wedding magic for our wedding, truly the most professional company we had came across before during and after our event, our guests are still commenting on his skills and baffled at how the tricks were done, I would have no hesitation in recommending Clive, and hope that I am able to use his services again soon.

Whilst staying at the Collingwood Hotel in Bournemouth, I had the unexpected pleasure of a chance meeting with Clive. Some of the guests, including myself, listened to him talking to a young couple who were interested in hearing about the entertainment he could provide at weddings. We were treated to examples of his incredible card tricks which left us speechless. I would have no hesitation in recommending Clive for any social event. He certainly knows how to captivate his audience. I am sure my fellow guests would endorse my opinion.

Grown Up  Magic Q&A

Grown Up Magic Q&A

How long have you been interested in magic?

Clive started performing magic aged 8 years old, the bug bit him hard and he still loves performing. He turned professional in 1981 and for the next 30 years was working flat out, performing at more than six shows (on average) every week. One December he performed at 89 different events.
In 2011 he semi-retired and now performs at only a handful of shows each month. He says "less is more" because he really looks forward to the days he is working and his more relaxed style allows him to be more generous with his time.

Take us through your show – what can we expect?

This is harder to answer because it is not what Clive does that's important but what the client receives that is the truth. Sounds strange I know, but he has a wealth of material and stacks of ideas, so let's talk about what you would like, we will help you choose and let's do what is right for your special party, your guests and most importantly YOU.

What do you love most about your job?

The audience reaction. Clive loves the laughter and the looks of total disbelief whenever he is working. It is like a drug to his audience, the more they see the more they want more. The phrase he hears the most is "What are you going to do next?" The answer is cards, coins, money, rope, rings and just about anything else that happens to be around. He even performs one great effect with a mouse trap. He says he would swap 10 good tricks for one good joke, in short, it's the entertainment that's important. However, his magic is very, very strong too.

What inspired you to start your own business?

To better be able to serve our client's the way the should be served. Clive instilled a policy which he calls 'Best Friend' treat EVERYONE, client's, suppliers and staff as your very very very best friend. This allows us to go the extra mile to make sure the client has the result we agreed and promised and importantly they want, and then do that little bit more.
He started his own business as this allows him to set the rules, as customer service is important to him and sadly lacking in almost every business in this country. Only when you spend a lot of time in the USA do you find out what customer-service should be like and that's what we do here.

Why should our clients choose you?

Five reasons Clive is the right magical entertainer for your party...
1. Clive was promoted to Member of The Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star, in January 2012 this is TMC's highest degree and reserved for a maximum of 300 magician's in the world. If your magician holds this degree you are assured to be booking one of the very best. Clive's silky smooth skills and fun personality means everyone loves him.
2. Clive has secured a great deal of business through BARK, roughly half of those clients have been kind enough to write a review. Almost 100% of those reviews gave Clive 5 stars out of 5. With that proven track record you know you are booking someone who will deliver.
3. Clive is much more interested in the result he delivers to his clients than he is about time, money or the effort required. So you know you are booking someone who is totally focused on doing the best possible job for you.
4. He looks the part. His bright red tailor-made suit means your magician stands out in a crowd.
5. I believe Clive is the only magician to offer a comprehensive guarantee, so YOU must agree he is great or he is free of charge, here's what we put on our website...
It is important to us that you have a truly great time on your special day, so we insist on giving you this 100% guarantee…
If for any reason whatsoever, (or even no reason at all) you are not absolutely ecstatically pleased with everything we do for you, if you do not agree that Clive is the most entertaining magician you have ever seen, that the feedback from all your guests is numerous, enthusiastic and very positive, that his children’s show (if that is part of his performance for you) has them sitting boggle-eyed and laughing all the way through.
That his Close Up “Mix ‘N Mingle” magic has all your guests engaged and talking, that his table magic is fun and of a very high standard just as you would expect from a magician who is six times Surrey Close-Up magic champion.
That our staff are friendly, approachable and helpful, and everything goes to your complete satisfaction, then simply tell Clive on the day and he will cancel your bill and you will not owe us a penny.
Simply put you must be 100% off the scale happy with EVERYTHING Clive does for you or he will tear up the contract and you will owe us nothing.
There will be no questions or hard feelings either.
This is your guarantee that everything will go just as you want it to and you have a truly fantastic time on your special party day.
I urge you to book as soon as you are 100% sure Clive is right for you. The date you are thinking about today and will book tomorrow might be the date someone else was thinking about yesterday and is booking today.
