Ivor entertained at our Teams children’s Xmas Party. He entertained over 20 children and a lot of the parents at the same time as well, with his various acts and skills. We certainly would recommend Ivor to anyone needing entertainment at a kids party. Thanks Ivor 👍👍👍 More...

Ivor entertained the children at my daughters 5th birthday party yesterday. He was great, he kept the children entertained for 45 minutes, they were interacting & had a great time. The adults were also commenting how great the show was. Would definitely recommend Ivor! More...

Thank you Hayley for the lovely review. It was a great party you organised and I was delighted to have been able to participate and entertain the guests. I noted that Peanuts the Monkey Puppet, stole the show, as always. Thanks again. Ivor

Q&A

At 14 years old I was the youngest ever member (at that time), ever allowed to join the Leicester Magic Circle. I am now 64 and have just taken early retirement, which gives me the time to return to my first love of entertaining.
Short answer - Over 50 years. If I am not good at what I do by now then I have no business being here and should stick to being a hobbyist.

The show consists of entertaining comedy magic, varied to suit the age groups being entertained. Strong magical content is interlaced between the fun routines. Lot's of audience participation is involved, so that the children are part of the show rather than just observers.
The featured puppet routine is delightful, very funny and this has also won a few adult talent shows over the years. There is a feature routine that includes the birthday child as an assistant (only if she/he wants to help), nobody is ever embarrassed in any way, that is not my style.
The balloon modelling routine is very entertaining and a feature model is created and given away to a helper, another large sculpture (pre-made) is presented to the Birthday Child, or VIP.
Depending on the package booked, all the children receive a balloon model. If the full party is required, all the party games are organised, gifts and prizes are included (the food is not provided). The games that everyone knows and loves are played, but without the elimination factor and also great games that will be new to the guests. Balloons feature heavily. A great mix of sitting down and moving around items are included.

In my opinion children are the best possible and most challenging audience, their honesty and sense of fun, encourages me to always give my very best efforts. A children's show is always an exciting event and you never quite know what to expect. If you are not entertaining, then the little ones will soon lose interest and find another amusement.
The real art of children's entertainment is to walk that tightrope between too much excitement (and lose the control) and not enough (and lose the interest). To be successful you need good, strong, visual, but above all entertaining magical effects and routines, with lots of variety to keep the children engaged throughout.

Having taken early retirement from a successful career I now have plenty of free time and decided to continue this absorbing art as a full time profession.

I will let someone else answer that because I am a modest person. In the words of an 8 year old after a recent show, "You are the best magician I have ever seen and I really mean that".
