‘19 Certificate of Excellence

With over 12 years experience as a full time magician and icebreaker specialising in breaking the ice and making events memorable across the UK and overseas, I began performing magic at a very early age and now have the pleasure of entertaining people as a full time career. Specialising in breaking the ice between guests meeting for the first time my job is focused on bringing people together through magical performances. As a member of the prestigious Magic Circle, the magic I perform is the kind you'd see on TV but performed right under your nose, before your very eyes, up close and personal. My performances are classical with a modern edge and normally have a few twists hidden within. I can entertain in a pre-dinner drinks setting or around tables as guests are seated. My philosophy is to make sure every guest is entertained during a celebration and to take a little strain off the event planner! Whether for 10 or 1000 guests, I believe that the experience should be the same for all. For large scale events, I offer a service which can supply a number of top quality professional magicians with over 10,000 hours of experience and knowledge! When holding an event with a large number of people, it is recommended to book 1 magician to every 100 guests. Choosing Magic Leigh will guarantee that your guests receive a truly remarkable and magical experience. I have a video of an recent event, please let me know if you would like me to send this over to you. "We hired Leigh to provide our conference attendees entertainment during one of the evening events. He was absolutely terrific! He had heads shaking in disbelief table by table. He is a very charming young entertainer that made everyone watch his every move. I really do not know how he does what he does but it was certainly entertaining to watch" Larry De Shon, President of Avis Budget Group

How long have you been interested in magic?

It has been a good 12 years now. It started as a hobby then in 2009 I did my first event. My friend's dad was part of Fujitsu and asked if I wanted to come and do magic at their Christmas work party in London. I remember being nervous on the day but also excited. I'd rarely visited London and this time it was on my own too. Take that in to account and how big my first client was, I was way out of my depth. At the time I did't understand why they wanted a magician, and now it is a service I provide. I still to this day say that is was the best night of my life. From then I decided to make my entire living from it and haven't looked back!

Take us through your show – what can we expect?

Up Close –
This is Leigh’s favourite way to perform his magic up close to your guests, right in front of their eyes, under their nose and in their hands. This style of magic is perfect for most occasions where Leigh can mingle through your guests and create little shows in their groups using borrowed objects such as pens, rings, string, rubber bands, coins, notes and anything else Leigh can get his hands on!

Table Top Magic –
This is very similar to up close magic but where your guests are seated around a table. The tricks Leigh performs in this style are normally much bigger than the usual up close magic so that everyone around the table can be involved. Most of the magic Leigh performs happens in your guests hands, however when a table is present Leigh may take advantage and use it for ease.

Stage/Cabaret/Parlour Magic –
Leigh has created a performance for each of these platforms that is tailored towards the audience. The length of these performances range from 25 minutes to an hour and a half, depending what your event is and what your needs are. The shorter performances are an ideal way to end off the evening having everyone involved or highlighting the lucky person celebrating their birthday by a special magic trick – just for them! They also can be great ways to make the CEO, MD or VIP appear in a magical way on stage.

Key words: 10 years experience - magic happens in your guests hands - breaks the ice - creates conversation - saves awkward first impressions - something different - makes your event memorable - unique - cool - fun - personable experience - time filler - entertainment for everyone, no one's left out - guarantee

What do you love most about your job?

I love peoples reactions. The whole reason I started doing magic, was for the reactions. I know that if I make someone smile through a trick, I know that I am doing my job. I also love and have the pleasure of bringing people together as my full time career - that's pretty special right!

What inspired you to start your own business?

Like the above, I wanted to make people smile and make sure that I provide a service to enhance your event. I also have a passion form customer service and getting people that don't know each other talking. I am very proud to say that I have created life time friendships, business relationships and even marriages through the magic I initially performed for them.

Why should our clients choose you?

I love performing magic for my full time profession and know that it isn't just about the magic. I could write why you should choose me for your event but I'd rather let one of my previous clients tell you as it hits the nail on the head and I am very grateful that he took the time to write these kinds words below:

"It's just possible, that you've come here seeking a magician. Let me tell you now you've come to the right place! But you've found a lot more than a guy who does tricks. Leigh is a charismatic young man who works hard at what he does. He engages people in front of their very eyes, draws them into his work and leaves them amazed. He performed at my 60th birthday gathering and from the ripples of applause and gasps of "no way" I knew they were enjoying his performance. Two days later and I'm still bumping into people who say "who was that magician, where did you find him, he was excellent" So if you came here looking for an entertainer whose also a top class close up magician to perform at your special event then look no further. You've found him. Thanks Leigh"

Magicians won’t give much away - that’s the nature of their job after all! But one thing you should be certain of when hiring a magician is whether they’ll be worth your money. The best way to assess your magician’s ability and skill is by viewing their website or Bark profile. Most magicians will have video examples of their tricks to showcase the best they have to offer. Always remember to check their reviews, as genuine customers will give an honest assessment of their work. It’s quick and simple to read reviews of professionals on Bark - just head over to their Bark profile and have a read!

As magicians work with the general public every day, it’s important that they have insurance to cover them in the case that anything goes wrong. It’s a good idea to ask for their insurance details before committing to a booking so that you can rest assured that you’ll be safe in their hands.

As the name suggests, a close-up magician will perform a variety of tricks up close - just inches away from their audience. This adds to the allure and surprise as you’ll be left wondering how the magician managed to pull the trick off literally in front of your eyes. Close-up magicians usually circulate around the room to perform tricks on smaller groups, making for an immersive experience.
