I would have to say he is definitely one of the finest Christmas Party Magicians we have ever seen and will be at the top of our list for our next Christmas parties! We were looking to hire magician for adults only and were not disappointed.
Our event was held on the day of the very heavy snow and I was concerned that Roger might not be able to get to us. However, despite grim road conditions, he was professional and didn’t let us down.
Everyone was amazed by his magic and thoroughly enjoyed watching his tricks (and trying to work out how he did it).
I would have no hesitation in booking him again if we had the requirement at another function and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a magician.

We had over 150 guests at our wedding at the Solent Hotel & Spa and were looking for unique ideas for entertainment and thought a magician would be a great addition to the wedding. We found Roger and he delivered! Everyone loved the magic, we booked him for 2 hours, but he ended up staying longer to make sure everyone saw some magic.

Wedding Reception Entertainment
Roger was one of our many highlights from our day. We are still guessing ‘how did he do that!’
From walking around our guests at the reception drinks to the brilliant close up table work, and still entertaining the little ones who were hanging off every trick! As you can see from our reactions, Roger is a true entertainer and is a must at your event. Amazed, astonished & thrilled – thank you for helping make our day special and memorable. We were only looking for a roaming magician, but with Roger we got so much more!
Joanne & Adrian – Hartley Wintney
Event Type: Birthday Party Magician
Roger was absolutely fantastic – he pitched his set perfectly to the varied crowd and left so many of us in awe of what he did and how he did it. Roger really knew how to engage the audience and delivered a fantastic and well-suited set to the 100 or so people in attendance. Thank you so much for making the evening perfect, we look forward to having you back to future events. We also enjoyed that this set was so different from a set that Roger performed back in January to a much smaller crowd of 8 people. Just fantastic, can’t speak highly enough of his work. Thank you
