Why should you book a Close up Magician for your up coming event?

A mix and mingle magician is one of the most popular forms of entertainment to have at an event. Magicians for corporate and social events have been used to entertain guests for the past 20+ years. More recently, with the art being popularised by the likes of David Blaine and Derren Brown. Close up magicians have entered the  market for birthday parties, proms, wedding anniversaries, bar mitzvahs and even garden parties!

Professional close up magicians can entertain in a mix and mingle setting or in between courses of the meal. I have spent the last 12 years developing an act that involves every guest at an event. The magic is designed to happen in the guests hands. Being so interactive, this naturally generates not only amazement but very strong banter which will result in developing an unforgettable atmosphere for the occasion.
Close up magic can also act as a very powerful ice breaker for events such as weddings and corporate events. This will naturally relax people and keep the conversation flowing long after the magician has left.

Celebrity Magician in London, Mayfair

Last Thursday, myself and two colleagues met in Mayfair, London to entertain during the drinks reception of a high profile ball. We had lots of fun and the magic was very well received.

Among the celebrities were Matt Dawson (pictured below), John Solako, Kevin Whately, Robert Powell, Dave Bassett and Tiff Needell.

After we had finished, I got chatting to Matt Dawson again, you would know him from the 2003 Rugby World Cup winning team and more recently the tv show ‘A Question of Sport’.

“I am absolutely flabbergasted, that s*** with the shoe really confuses me!.” Matt Dawson

The team, after the event.

London Corporate Magician entertains a Legal Awards Night in Shoreditch

Towards the end of 2012, I had the pleasure of being invited to entertain as a Corporate Magician in London at an awards evening in the legal industry.  It was held downstairs in the very trendy McQueen in Shoreditch, Central London.

There were 200 delegates in attendance with myself as the entertainment. A Close-up Magician works extremely well in this type of environment as all of the magic happens in the guests hands helping creating amazement and laughter to build an unforgettable atmosphere for the night.

Here are a couple of images from the night

London Magician Greg Williamson Entertains at The Wallace Collection with A Pickpocket

Through a referral from another Corporate Event I entertained at in London, I was invited to perform as a close up magician at the Wallace Collection. I believe that some of Blackadder was filmed here too.

The Wallace Collection has a lot of History behind it and therefore the company that I was working with, decided to make it a Victorian themed event. They used the services of myself a ‘London Magician‘ and ‘Keith the Thief’ a very entertaining London Pickpocket – for entertainment purposes only of course!! We had the privilege of entertaining 150 guests throughout the drinks reception.

I received some very kind words from Stephanie, a couple of days after the event.

“I wanted to say a big thank you for last night, we have had such brilliant feedback from our guests. You truly got people talking on how you did your tricks and even now I’m still trying to figure out how you got the ring in the envelope. The board even included you in their speech today! Everyone who I spoke to have been extremely impressed, so thank you for helping us pull off a successful event. It has been a real pleasure working with you and will definitely be recommending your services.”
