Hi, hope you are well and thank you for giving me the opportunity to quote.
I have worked for around 35 celebrities including the Royal Family.
I will wander from table to table, group to group or person to person to amaze, bemused and leave them astounded.
Full UK coverage however I specialise in the Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cumbria, Midlands, Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset areas.
I entertained for Carl Fogarty at his 50th birthday party (4 times World Super Bike champion and the winner of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 2014 and many a TV show guest) - in fact his cousin booked me there and then for his own wedding and I also performed to Jake Quickenden from X factor final and also I'm A Celebrity. I was also commissioned to entertain the Royal family in April last year. I have entertained for many other celebrities too including actor Steve Pemberton (Benidorm), Matt Le Tissier (England footballer), David Dunn from Blackburn Rovers, ACE from the Gladiators TV series. ITV Magician Pete Firman and very recently Coronation Street's Simon Barlow as seen in two of the videos from the links below.
**IMPORTANT INFO**. I dress in a smart suit and don't carry or bring any big clumsy objects I simply turn up in my suit and a clip board and carry all I need in my pockets and I don't need electric. Many magicians wear whacky shirts and jackets, clown like trousers, face make up and even safari hats. My act isn't intrusive at all as I will just elegantly wander around your guests in a polite and friendly manner at tables, bar area or where ever they gather. Remember you want a great impression to be left with your guests and some of my illusions are tailored for your event. It's great fun for all ages young to the old including me as I love it.
If you are looking to hire the person who gives you the cheapest quote then sadly it may not be me that you choose however my quote and booking come with a 100% guarantee that if you are not happy with your entertainment on the night then you simply don't pay anything else after your initial £75 deposit. Please remember there are want to be magicians out there and also some that are too competent and confident when performing.
I am also happy for you to come over to meet me first if you wish and even see a little of what I offer in front of your very own eyes.
Here are a few video links to watch. PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO WATCH THEM ALL.
Very best of magical wishes.
Darren was a pleasure to have at our wedding engaging perfectly with our guests skillfully entertaining them for the duration of his stay.
...I can highly recommend him for any venue
Amazing! Thank you for wowing at our New Year’s Eve wedding. Highly recommended!
By far one of the best magicians i’ve seen, what he does is just mind blowing, such a lovely, welcoming person, amazing work
Great show. We really enjoyed it. Highly recommended
What a great entertainer and fantastic magician. Blow my mind with so many different tricks. Even found time for a chat before he left. Top man
Fantastic magician with a wonderful personality. Highly entertaining, definitely recommend anyone who is thinking of hiring a magician books Darren
Fantastic magician did a gig at WILPSHIRE golf club and blew us all away with his close up magic ,if you need quality entertainment Darren is your man
Darren was absolutely fantastic at my 60th birthday so pleased we hired him the kids loved it & the older ones said it was so much better than having a DJ. He made the entire get together very enjoyable thank you so much Darren More...
We hired Darren for a 90th birthday party (there was a mixture of ages of adults and children). Darren was absolutely fantastic! From the minute we booked him he was really professional and on the day he entertained every single guest. His magic was brilliant and fascinating to watch. We would definitely recommend him. More...
seen the magic today ...o.g amazed me and all others ..would highly recommend him ....very friendly man x
Darren made my nephews birthday amazing the way he entertained children as well as adults .Highly recommend Darren for any occasion. Absouloutly fantastic.
Absolutely fantastic. I can't recommend Darren highly enough, he had the entire bar enthralled with his magic and illusions, including some very worldly-wise/cynical people, including me! We were lucky enough to enjoy this entertainment for free but if you're thinking of hiring Darren for your wedding, function etc, all I can say is book him, you will not be disappointed. I am not into magic, in any way, but I was captivated by Darren and his never-ending stream of brilliant tricks/illusions/magic or whatever it is! I could have watched him all night. And not only watched, he gets everyone involved in the act, so it's always interesting and involving for the audience, everyone feels part of the experience. Absolutely brilliant, 100% recommended, do not think twice, if you are looking for an artist in this field, look no further - Darren is your man! The only negative I can think of is that he won't tell me how he turns plain paper into £10 notes, which is a trick I would like to be able to perform a few hundred times every day :) More...
Fantastic! Darren turned up out the blue and showed us these amazing tricks! Would definitely recommend
Darren stepped in at the very last minute, rearranging his plans to ensure that a Bride and Groom were not disappointed on their big day. Darren's magic was amazing, entertaining both young and old. A really lovely guy I'm so pleased the other 2 magicians let us down otherwise we wouldn't have found you! We couldn't be happier and Seb (aged 5) was still telling me about the bent coin and invisible cards at midnight haha thanks again More...
We went to the family fun day at Langho FC and Darren Brand was there doing his magic. We were amazed by his magic - he is brilliant! I would definitely recommend him!!
Darren is a charismatic showman. He involves his audience and entertains without embarrassing them. I found his performance to be enthralling, funny and perplexing. Thoroughly recommended!
Booked for a date in August but impressed with the links he sent if previous events.
Darren did some table magic for us at an event we were attending, he was absolutely amazing! Some of his tricks were completely astonishing and we all loved it. Highly recommend him for parties etc, he was a great guy, really friendly and engaging, can redirect command the crowd! More...

Charlotte Clarissa Baker
Amazing! Definitely reccommend. My mind is blown :D
Fab experience! Mind blowing tricks! Definitely recommend to any event to give it a different touch!
Amazing, what a show! I’ve seen Darren twice now and can’t see how he does it. He had everyone mesmerised.
Darren entertained us and our guests at our wedding on New Years Eve and was absolutely incredible. Having been in contact with a loads and loads of magicians all at completely varied prices, I was really unsure who to go for. Darren stood out from the others as he was just more personal straight away and he sent videos of his previous work which gave me confidence. Darren was so organised and helpful in the build up to the wedding. On the wedding day, we honestly couldn’t have asked for anymore. The guests, including myself were blown away with his magic and had absolutely no idea how he did any of his tricks. Darren made sure he entertained all our guests, working his way around the room brilliantly. We and our guests were having so much fun that we asked Darren to stay for an hour longer, which he gladly did. Since the wedding, everyone has been talking about Darren, and saying how they’ve never seen a magician like him before. He entertained everyone from my 2 year old to my 80 year old grandma. Thank you so much, Darren! You really did exceed all our expectations and we hope to see you again in the future. X More...
Amazing close up magic, totally had us from the first trick to the last. Mindbogglingly good - thanks Darren!!
Darren was at a wedding I attended on NYE and was amazing! No idea how he did the magic! Great fun and involved us all in it! Just brilliant! 5 ⭐️!
5 ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Darren cane highly recommended and did not disappoint. His attendance was a surprise for my new husband at our wedding and he and all the guests loved it! From the booking stage, all the communication throughout and the actual magic on the night I can not fault Darren! His tricks went down a storm and everyone was blown away! I’d highly recommend Darren for any event or function you’re having! Thanks Darren love Mr and Mrs Woodward xx More...
Very good, always engaging with the audience and goes the extra mile to make sure the event is memorable.
Darren came to our wedding at Gibbon Bridge (03/11/18) what a fantastic guy, all our guests including myself were totally amazed by his tricks! Would 100% recommend thanks again for making our day so special x More...
