Magician Tony Charles specialising in close-up walkabout magic, family magic shows or even a mix of the two for weddings, parties, venues and corporate events in Sussex, Surrey, Hants and Kent.
Also parties for children of any age.
Interested in magic and performing arts from the age of 11, I launched It's Magic Time whilst living in Kent in1991, soon gaining a host of regular private, corporate and service industry clients including;-
Bridgewood Manor and Hythe Imperial Marston Hotels
Holiday Inn Maidstone
Hilton Dartford Bridge
Ramada Jarvis Pembury Tunbridge Wells

More recently, since my move to Sussex, clients include:-
Lea Graham Associates

Worthing Chamber of Commerce
ETI Ltd, Worthing Homes
Jewel Fun Casinos
amongst many private bookings.
In addition to my close-up magic and magic shows, since 2004 I have been working in education presenting maths and science shows/workshops in schools UK wide. I use magic to explore the concepts, topics and calculation strategies of these subjects to fit in with the particular learning of students from age 4-16. About 100 schools per year engage me, and historically 60% of these clients have requested repeat visits. Please visit my website for more details about school visits.
I have £10,000,000 PLI, an Enhanced Fully Portable DBS check and I am a member of Equity.
What you can expect at your event.
Magic is such a flexible form of entertainment and can be tweeked to suit your needs.
If you are looking for close-up magic for your family, corporate or venue event, I can perform walkabout mix-n-mingle magic at your drinks reception, table magic during the meal, a stand up show for the guests or a mix of all these. My tricks are varied, using ropes, money, rings, cards and mind magic, so not just card tricks. Usually 2 hours however 1 hour or 3 hours is often requested depending on the number of guests present,
If your event is for a children's party, I use real magic appropriately presented for the age group present. Normally a 45 min show followed by balloon modelling. Often I am asked to attend the whole 2 hour party, and in this situation the usual format is a show, balloons whilst the children have their party food followed by either party games, a magic workshop or fizz bang science workshop.
Parties and events are always special occasions and my aim is for the guests to feel great about the magic experience they receive, and to enhance the overall enjoyment of the event. My business has grown by building relationships with my clients and their guests, and that is probably the aspect I love most about my job, as many rebook or engage me after seeing my work live. The only way to do that is to make sure I give my very best at every engagement.
In conclusion, I understand that as an event organiser you want to be sure you have the right entertainer for your guests. In view of this I do have clients who are happy to be contacted and provide specific references for your type of event. If you would like to meet me before deciding that is often possible, providing a good opportunity show you my magic and discuss how it could fit in with your party. Of course I only charge for the event and not for pre event meetings.
That is a basic summary of my services. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
Wishing you a fabulous event.
