Table Magicians in Southampton
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 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 Southampton 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 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.
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 as spirits are always high and a great time is had by all.
