About

I split my time between performing magic and filmmaking.

As a magician perform everything from close-up and trade-show performances to large stage events, I perform magic and ‘mind-reading’ effects to many different audiences.

Bringing humour, storytelling, and a real sense of magic to each performance I do, I have a performance to suit many types of event.

Greg chapman was a pleasure to have at our charity event - A winter ball. Greg entertained the guests for 1 hour , very witty and professional act.

5 November 2021

Greg was part of an event we held in our market town in Lincolnshire- Holbeach.

I have never met a more positive and hard working artist. An absolute pleasure to have as part of the day.

He even pulled out all the stops to still be part of the day, arranging alternative transport after having vehicle issues, yet still he didn’t let me down and after a long travel to us, was so hard working all day and constantly impressing the guests.

A true pleasure, and I would strongly recommend anyone booking him for one of their events. He continually entertains and makes people smile.

Look forward to working with Greg again.
Thank you so much- absolute star!

We hired Greg for an adults party on 18th September 2021. We were very disappointed with the performance. It contained little sparkling content and long drawn out descriptions of his magic. Many people in our group left the hour long show before the end. More...

I’m sorry you feel that way. Many people enjoy the storys I weave around the magic, as can be seen from all of my other reviews. I understand that not everyone enjoys the same style, and if you wanted a silent act or big stage illusionist this is never what I offer, or what I was asked for. I offer a stage show of visual magic and mentalism wrapped up in comedy dialogue and storytelling, and am sorry if this did not fit what you were looking for that night.

Greg performed for my daughter's 7th birthday party and he was absolutely brilliant- his show was perfectly pitched at them (also good fun for the adults) and he kept them very entertained - there were shrieks of delight at various moments - & they raved about the brilliant magician afterwards. Really excellent.

We hired Greg for our belated Year 6 leavers party. We had about 38 children aged 12-13 years. Greg was fantastic. He interacted brilliantly with the kids, who all enjoyed his tricks. The variety of tricks he performed was great and the way he involved the kids in his tricks was excellent. Greg was punctual and courteous to everyone. I would recommend Greg to anyone looking for a great magician for a party. More...

Greg was amazing, and our other friends comments were: funny and wonderfully puzzling; the time just flew past; kept us all entertained and involved us all; ‘a welcome change to quiz night’ brilliant fun.

Greg is superb - so entertaining and a fantastic performer. We booked Greg for my mum's virtual 60th birthday, he sent her an envelop prior to the event which played an interactive part of a number of tricks he performed which really wowed us. He engaged with other members of my family also on the call too which was fantastic. I was really surprised with how well this performance / show worked in a virtual space. We had a blast, I highly recommend booking Greg for any of your events. More...

Greg was so much fun at my online charity night, can't recommend him enough! I've never booked/attended a show like this before and had no clue how it would work over zoom, but it was so fabulous! The tricks were so clever, and integrated into comedy and storytelling which was really fun. It was so lovely to see everyone laughing and clapping, thanks so much Greg for stepping up the evening.

Greg made the whole process of booking and making the necessary arrangements easy. He designed an act that was perfect for our son, not easy for a 4-year-old let alone when it all had to be virtual. Greg even sent an envelope beforehand of ‘props’ so that our son could be actively involved in the magic.

The act was very professional, light-hearted and will be remembered for a long-time to come. We were even able to dial different households into the video call so that it felt more like the whole family were together for a birthday celebration during lockdown.

Thank you so much Greg! 😊

I booked Greg to perform at our Online Christmas Party over the Teams network to over 50 colleagues. Greg adapted his show to give us 45 minutes of incredible magic and mindreading. The feedback I have had today from my team has been fantastic - they loved it, and are still trying to work out how he did the tricks! I would not hesitate to recommend Greg for your event.

Greg entertained us at our annual late Christmas bash, he was easy to communicate with before the night, everyone enjoyed the show, the way he included us all & drew us in to the 'magic' was fun. Thank you Greg.

I have seen Greg perform on several occasions the last being his Very Christmas Story in Nantwich. I went with a group of friends and we thoroughly enjoyed the show. Greg is a great showman and has a good rapport with his audience. There was a winning combination of storytelling, gags, props and circus skills. In conclusion we went to be entertained and we were not disappointed. More...

Greg Chapman is always the first booking for events around our market town in Suffolk. His versatility menas he can entertain the smaller audiences of Heritage Open Day with his brilliant history stories equally as brilliantly as he captivates a crowd of thousands close up.

Q&As

All of my life, but I have been performing professionally since 2005.

My shows involve a combination of magic, escapology, juggling, comedy and more - although I couldn’t take you through a show on a ‘step by step’ basis as every show is different, and the style and effects differ drastically from that close up at a wedding or corporate environment to a large stage show. Plus, I try to tailor each show around the circumstances and audience, so that what you get is perfectly suited to your event.l

Entertaining people! That is the drive for me, getting to see different people every day and to see their faces as I perform for them, and to adapt and change the shows for different spaces and audiences.

I spent seven years touring magic shows to schools in Italy to teach English, performing thousands of one-man magic shows in that time. The time cane when I wanted to take full control of my shows and my materials, and so back in 2010 I started up my own shows in the UK.

Experience and flexibility in performance, allowing me to make sure not only that the performance is entertaining, but also that it suits your needs!

Yes! Over the last year I have moved to performing almost exclusively Virtual Shows, usually over Zoom, and have enjoyed doing so so much that I intend to continue to offer them even after the pandemic is over.

One of my great joys with this is people who comment on the real sense of ‘togetherness’ the shows bring even at times when we can’t all be together in person.

Services

From an awards do to a cabaret night and everything in between, I can offer hosting services to keep things moving in a steady and entertaining fashion!

At the start of the pandemic I realised things would have to change for the duration, and so I have worked hard to create online performances for everyone from private groups to large scale online events!

Keep ‘live’ and interactive entertainment at your event, and keep people together, even when social distancing rules say we can’t for the safety of all with a virtual performance!

From close up to stage, and for events and audiences of all types!
