Ian was first class! I booked him for a 13 year old birthday party and although the girls were a handful to say the least Ian kept them very entertained and my granduaghter was more than happy. Ian would be fantastic for children and / or adults and I wouldn't hesitate to book him again! 😺

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. Ian captivated an audience of Sheltered Housing Residents in Blackpool on 8.11.18. It was a Fund Raising event for Hedgehog Rescue Blackpool and he helped us raise over £430. An amazing man, with an amazing talent. Thank you, Ian.,

Ian came to us at very short notice and had to entertain a large group of about 80 people. He was very good and entertaining and even managed to involve us all in one of his tricks. The feedback we had from our members was that they had really enjoyed his performance.

Ian was very professional friendly and fun, He communicated effectively to ensure he delivered what we required from him on the day. He was punctual and well presented. His close up magic at individual tables was faultless and he geared his magic to the age groups of each table. My 2yr old twins were amazed by him. Overall I was very impressed and pleased with his professionalism and his act. I would definitely use him again and would recommend him. Thank You Ian.
