The Great Baldini entertained sixty very giddy eleven year olds at our end of school party and was really terrific. Great fun, responsive to enquiries and highly recommended!

Please please please book The Great Baldini for your event.
From the point of initial enquiry to the performance David could not have been any more professional.
The booking was for my daughters 30th birthday party in my garden. There was around 50 guests ages ranging from 5 yrs old to 90yrs old and every single person had a fabulous time.
A lovely way to get guests talking and laughing as David mingled with the guests performing magic tricks which really was amazing . The stage show was so funny and again inclusive with guests puzzled at the magic happening in front of their eyes.
The next event I plan David will definitely be invited. Thank you so much Great Baldini you are brilliant xx

The Great Baldini is a larger than life character and had the children hanging off his every word. My somewhat difficult to impress 5 year old daughter didn't stop giggling and talked about him long after the show had finished. The show was great value and perfect for a small garden party. We had almost an hour of sit down 'parlour show' featuring his friend Hamish the dog and then he moved around and did some tricks for the grown ups too. Couldn't recommend 'The Great Baldini' more to inject some much needed magic into everyones lives! Thank you! More...

I booked TGB for my husband's 60th birthday. Over two hours of absolutely superb entertainment that had our friends and family both enthralled and in stitches with laughter at the same time. Wouldn't hesitate to book again.


My grandfather was a music hall magician and passed on his passion to me when I was a child

In discussion with the client I can craft a tremendous entertainment for intimate dinner parties, to raucous children's entertainment to large corporate gatherings. Each requires it's own bespoke approach. I find a layered approach works very well:

- Pre-event gathering - walk around for up to an hour
- During the event - dinner or party – at table – circa 5-10 minutes at each table
- After the event – a c30 minute stage show – making the birthday person/host/most senior manager look like a genius
- Post dinner casino card magic in the bar – groups of eight to ten at a time at my black-jack table

This seems to cover all bases and is upto three – four hours of very high quality, memorable entertainment.

The audiences I perform for. I want to make them laugh, gasp and remember your event.

Following a childhood dream I left a successful corporate career to perform magic.

My persona and performance is large, colourful and memorable. I work hard to ensure that the audience feels valued, respected and avoid the hackneyed old trope of cheap laughs from belittling volunteers.

Yes - I provide a one hour, on-line, interactive morale booster for companies and family/friends groups: "How to entertain yourself and others with a pack of cards. Participants all have a pack of playing cards and the workshop goes through the history, teaches some tricks, and bewilders with others.

I have invested in UV lighting sanitising equipment so that all my props are germ/virus free


Whilst guests are gathering/waiting and enjoying drinks before a meal.

During a meal, visiting tables and performing close-up magic for diners during a sit-down meal.

A 50 minute interactive 'stage' Magic show. Involving guests and performing larger-scale magic illusions.

Entertaining children (aged five and up) with close-up Magic or a Parlour/Stage Magic Show including my (very naughty) dog, Hamish - a hand puppet – who entertains and absorbs youngsters with story-telling and magic for up to two hours.

Usually a post-dinner/later evening entertainment (often in the venue bar) as a croupier at my own Vegas quality blackjack table. An 45 minute interactive show of card tricks and gambling routines for groups of eight-tee seated at the blackjack table. This can be repeated through the even for different cycles of guests.

The Great Baldini performs in full toastmaster's red and can perform master of ceremonies duties and announcing the speeches.

The Great Baldini charges the following standard hourly rates:

- First Hour : £150
- Second Hour : £125
- Each subsequent Hour : £100

These prices are all-inclusive of travel expenses within the UK mainland and set-up times. Travel outside the UK by negotiation.
