Just watched the GoPro video you made & edited for us and it's absolutely AMAZING! It's such a wonderful, unique idea - you should charge for something that good (I can safely say that now!) but as a free addition to your services I cannot thank you enough. Thank you for keeping our guests entertained - you provided unforgettable entertainment and I will be sure to recommend you to anyone, who is looking for a magician for their wedding/party...!

Just 'WOW' Neil came to entertain our customers for our 7th birthday celebrations. This is the second year we've been lucky enough to book him and it definitely won't be the last! He mingle with our customers like a pro, drawing all those around him in to watch the miracles happen. The murmurs and gasps of awe got louder as he worked the room...and still continue to sound today as those, who witnessed Neil's astonishing skills retell the amazing tales (over & over again!!) Thank you Neil...I can't recommend you enough to anybody that wants to add that 'je ne sais quoi' to their event. Hope to see you again really soon xxx

Cheers, Neil! You were superb and one of the highlights of our day......still trying  to work out that kiwi one!

We were all truly blown away by your skills and will recommend you to anyone without hesitation that wants something a little different. Once again thank you so very much for your help.
Sarah Bojko - Pub Manager Brewery Tap
Neil came along to our pub's 6th anniversary, and helped make the night one to remember. Every customer has told me how much they enjoyed Neil, and I've had every trick talked through to me so many times now! I'm so glad I chose Neil to entertain us, he mingled with ease, and won over even the most skeptical customers I have!
Cassie and Ash
Thank you sooooo much for coming.....everyone was utterly amazed by your tricks!
Daniel - Prested Hall
Absolutely superb, mate! They'd all heard how good you were and you didn't disappoint!.....just listen to them in there!!!

Neil, you were fantastic at our awards ceremony. You kept everyone amused (and bemused) while you were circulating and I know that all the team were talking about it for ages afterwards. Thanks again for helping make our evening such a success.
Liz & Joe - 50th Wedding Anniversary
Where do I begin?  50+ guests crammed into our home and you worked the room wonderfully. EVERYBODY was utterly enthralled by the magic. The trick you showed me with the three cards was simply amazing and must have taken you years to master. I don't think I've ever seen anything quite so incredible....!!
Callum Lewis - 18th Birthday Party
Really appreciate you turning up at such short notice ....magic was  awesome
Glen Moulds - Homegrown organiser
I could tell by the laughter and the looks on everyone's faces that they were all utterly gob smacked by your magic! It's not often I'm left speechless, but  I guess there's a first time for everything! Truly amazing....
Jacqueline & Graham
Having seen you perform before I knew what I was getting and I wasn't disappointed! I think everyone thought I was exaggerating, when I told them how good you were, but you made our Anniversary party the talk of the next few days. I'll definitely be recommending you to all of my family and friends...
David &  Tex - The 4 Colnes County Show
Thank you most kindly for providing the magic for all of our guests on Saturday AND for keeping the serving staff entertained, too. It was fantastic to see someone go that extra mile and with such enthusiasm as well. Your skills are beyond comprehension young man!!!
Paul Goodchild - Vintage Rally Chairman for East Anglia
I'd never seen close up magic 'live' before - I always thought it was camera tricks! Thank you for dispelling that myth!! You added a touch of class to our annual event and I very much look forward to welcoming you back next year - the spectators were in complete awe...!
Paul & Chloe
Neil, thank you so much for the top quality magic you provided for us on our special day - you were superb and the guests are still talking about you. I could watch you all day, mate!
Richard & Amy
We really wished we'd booked you for longer, Neil. You were AWESOME!  Perfect choice of entertainment for our day and everyone's mind was well and truly blown. Thank you for our special gift at the end.....didn't see that one coming at all!!!
