Have a Magical Christmas and New Year!

Merry New Christmas!

Before preparing for tonight’s Christmas Eve party in Harrogate (which will be the 3rd year in a row they’ve hired me!) I thought I would do a little bit of magic to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year… (Looks better full screen and HD when watching)

(Note: I have changed my phone lock pattern just in case any evil people are watching too closely and planning on compromising my phone at some point in the future…)

Thank you!

Thanks for watching and following me on social media sites (find links at the bottom of the page and in the sidebar on the right if you want to be kept updated), thanks to those of you who have hired me to perform at your event (or several events) throughout the last year and thanks for just generally allowing me to share my passion and make people happy – because that’s what makes me happy 😀

Christmas Magician

As you can assume, this Christmas party magician season has been pretty hectic – even busier than previous years including some small close up magic shows at private parties, loads of mix and mingle magic/strolling magic at corporate Christmas parties, staff parties, office parties and promotional events for previous and new clients such as Red Bull Technology, Asda, Squire Sanders and many more! But it doesn’t even stop here, as well as tonight’s Christmas Eve party, I have several corporate Christmas parties booked in throughout January – so if you’re company is planning a delayed Christmas party in January, please get in touch, I still have a bit of availability so might be able to come and add an extra special magic twist to get people talking!

If you’re interested in some awesome entertainment for next year’s events please get in touch as soon as you can before I’m fully booked…

Have a truly magical Christmas and New Year! 

Just ask yourself: If I repeat what I did today 365 times, will I be where I want to be in a year’s time?

Unforgettable Event Entertainment for Christmas Parties and more!

Short teaser video of how my magic can help your event:

(Contains strong language – sorry, next time I’ll do rubbish tricks so people don’t swear.) 

I finally decided to use this beautiful HD footage as a teaser video to promote how my close up magic makes a great ice breaker to give people something completely different to talk about at Christmas parties, New Year events and other functions. The video was taken after The Lock In dance show at Harrogate Theatre. (More details and video below…)

Our dance crew, The Blood Masterz performed a b-boy/breakdance show in the bar area before the theatre show started and The Dance Company joined us to perform after the show.

When we’d finished and the theatre audience had cleared the bar, one of the managers at Harrogate Theatre was asking about what I do full-time and so, obviously, I pulled out my deck of cards to show them and my fellow dancers a few bits of close up magic!

If you’re thinking of how you can spice up this year’s staff Christmas party or are planning another event – hiring me as your close up magician is obviously a fantastic idea!

Although my opinion is marginally biased, close up magic, when performed well, is a great form of interactive entertainment that your Christmas party or New Year celebration guests will remember for years to come…
Leaving you to be remembered for organising an awesome Christmas party!

Book me as your Christmas party magician!


The Lock In – dance show

For those interested in The Lock In dance show, which should be everyone, because it’s incredible, here’s the trailer:

The Lock In is choreographed by The Masterz Crew’s very own Bobak Walker!
As you can see, the show is jam-packed full of live music and dance in a funny and highly entertaining manner. I just had the pleasure of watching this year’s show at The Carriage Works in Leeds a couple of days ago and it was even better than previous years!

Anyway, my point was – if you need a Christmas party magician this year:

Recent Event Statistics

“So… have you had much work on recently?”

This is something I’ve been asked countless times, not just by friends, but from guests at events and people interested in booking a close up magician. So I thought I would take a moment to calculate and share some interesting statistics from the last couple of months.

In July and August alone…Birthday party magician

I was hired to perform close up magic at 27 different events in the last 2 months! That averages out at around 3 and a third events per week, although the majority were obviously at weekends.

Out of those 27, I was performing as a wedding magician on 10 different couples big days, an adult Birthday party magician at 8 events, a night club magician on 3 different occasions, wedding anniversary magician on a few other dates, as well as a corporate magician, engagement party magician and even as a Christening magician!

So how many scenic drives has your new car had?

B-Boy Twist - Breakdance show after performing close up magic

“You guys did an excellent job on the dance floor and you did a fantastic job as a magician. People are talking about you still!” – Curt Johnson

These events have included performances as far as Gorleston-on-sea in Great Yarmouth for a 40th Birthday party where I was hired to perform magic followed by a breakdance show with my crew at a beautiful location next to the best British beach I’ve ever seen – this 5+ hour journey required an overnight stay! Another close up magician slot followed by a breakdance show combo was for an Envision event at Leeds City Museum.

Breakdancers for hire

“Oliver is professional, full of energy and cool. Not only has he provided us with excellent customer service but he also made our events pretty funky and special!” – Laurie Clemenceau – Envision Co-Ordinator

Night Club Magician – Performing at Mission in Leeds

I’ve also entertained at Entourage night club in Manchester, weddings in Richmond, Great Broughton in Middlesbrough, The Rudding Park Hotel in Harrogate, Rothwell in Leeds, Halifax, The Waterton Park Hotel at Walton Hall in Wakefield (one of my favourite venues!), Brighouse, Huddersfield, a couple of Asian weddings – one of which at the Craiglands Hotel in Ilkley (another favourite venue!), a close up magic show in Giggleswick, a party in Whitby, a nightclub in Bradford, as well as several events in and around Leeds! It was nice to be back to my home town of Horsforth in Leeds for a joint 50th and 21st Birthday party too!

Yorkshire Wedding Magician

Wedding Magician in Tunstall, Richmond – North Yorkshire

I was actually booked as a surprise for several of these events – a surprise magician seems to be a really popular idea at the moment and always goes down really well!

Of course every single event was enormous fun, I met a lot of fantastic people and I’ve been encouraged to push even harder to learn new and exciting magic to get great reactions from the guests!

And the last statistic:

I received 100% positive feedback from the people who booked me 🙂 including emails of thanks from very satisfied Brides & Grooms and testimonials from ecstatic clients on my Feedback page as well as my Google+ Corporate & Wedding Magician page!

So that’s mostly what I’ve been up to in this none existent summer – having a totally awesome time amazing the heck out of, what must have been, thousands of people at plenty of different events!

Coming up this week I’ll be performing office magic as a corporate magician for O2 again in Leeds for their Guru department’s 1st Anniversary, a surprise wedding magician in Bradford (shhhhh, don’t tell them) and adding a touch of my magic to a 50th Birthday party in Chapel Allerton!

So now you know I’ve got plenty of performance experience up my sleeves (but nothing else, honest) and am a full time professional close up magician – you know you can trust me as your specialist close up magician.

I’m expecting Christmas party magician season this year to be even busier than these last 2 months so if you’re in need of something different to break the ice and give your guests/staff something fun to chat about…

Add a sprinkle of awesomeness to your event
