Private Party Magician in Brockenhurst
We hired Roger to perform at a private party at our family home in Brockenhurst, There were only 12 of us but Roger had both the adults and the children captivated for over an hour with his amazing Magic.

Magicians in Lyndhurst
With it’s many restaurants, Lyndhurst is a great spot for a family gathering, so if you are looking for Magicians in Lyndhurst I have had many great evenings performing table magic in Lyndhurst. Performing below at a 50th birthday party.
New Forest Table Magician
If you are looking for some table magic during a meal then Roger has you covered, he can perform a 5-15 minute routine of his unique table magic so your guests all get a mini show at their table.
If your event involves a sit down meal a Table Magician can move between the tables performing their close up magic to the seated guests.
Depending on how many guests you are expecting for your event please allow one walk around Magician per 100 guests. Typically a sit down meal will last for up to 2 hours. In this time Roger would perform an 8-12 minute routine to each table of usually 8-10 guests per table. So based on a 12 minute performance with a few minutes between each table you only have 2 hours to ensure everyone got to see some magic.
If you are expecting 200+ guests, you can either reduce the time Roger spends at the table but this can then get down to as low as 5 minutes per table which is hardly enough time to say hello!
Roger works with many other local Magicians in the New Forest area and can book them on your behalf. They will all be personally vetted by Roger and will always be members of the Magic Circle.
So if you are expecting 100 or 500 guests you can be assured that every single table will get to see the Magic!
The perfect entertainment for your adult dinner party!
Whilst Roger is primarily a magician for adults he can quite happily entertain any children you have at your event.
If you are looking for a dedicated childrens entertainer, he can recommend a few.
New Forest Close up Magician
One of the most amazing types of magic I perform is close-up magic.

He will have your guests rubbing their eyes with dis-belief with what they have just seen.
Christmas Party Magician New Forest
If you are having a Birthday Party, a Private Party, a Christmas Party or just a Party a New Forest Magician is the perfect choice to entertain all your guests.
Roger has performed at 100’s of parties in Lymington and Lyndhurst over the last 21 years and can guarantee your guests will all be amazed with his unique close up magic.
If the weather is good there is nothing better than a garden party, dining outside and a close up magician walking around your garden entertaining your friends and family as they are enjoying their food. He has also been known to do a bit of mind reading, so be careful what you are thinking!
If you are looking for something a little bit different, Roger has a concept he calls the Secret Room!
You allocate a room of your house to be turned into a Magic Room, small groups of guests ideally less than 15 are all invited to go into the room at certain times throughout the evening.
They will all experience a unique and engaging personal magic show, however they must be sworn to secrecy about what is in the room!
As the evening progresses, as long as everyone can keep the secret it’s a great way to provide some mystery to your party!
Roger’s favourite magic performance is as a Christmas Party Magician for hire as spirits are always high and a great time is had by all.
