Roger you were amazing, can’t thank you enough for adding a bit of extra magic to your evening celebrations. I had to speak to all my guests so didn’t get to see as much magic as I wanted to, but everyone said you were amazing! Thanks again if I ever get married again I will be booking you!

Wedding Reception, The Old Thorns Hotel
Roger is an excellent magician. I booked him for a corporate drinks event on Hayling Island where we had over 100 people. He turned up on time (before our guests arrived), highly professional, personable and had a great sense of humour.
Corporate Magician Portsmouth
Roger worked tirelessly for the time that he was booked in for and nothing was ever too much. He worked the room performing his close up magic and his tricks were amazing.
Our guests also appreciated his tricks. How he did some of the tricks I do not know. I highly recommend Roger and I personally will book him again in the future.
