Table Magician Southampton
If you are looking for a Table Magician in Southampton to perform table magic during a meal I have been entertaining party goers in Southampton with my table magic for many years.
I will usually perform a 5-15 minute routine of unique magic keeping your guests entertained. They will all get a mini show at their table.
Depending on how many guests you are expecting for your event please allow one walk around / Close up Magician per 100 guests.
Typically a sit down meal will last for up to 2 hours. In this time I would perform a 5-15 minute routine to each table this is usually for 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 gets to see some magic.
If you are expecting 200+ guests, you can either reduce the time I spend 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!
It is much better to hire a second Close up Magician to perform even greater illusions.
I work with many other local Southampton Magicians and can book them on your behalf. They will all be personally vetted by myself and people I have worked with before.
So if you are expecting 100 or 500 guests you can be assured that every single table will get to see some Magic!
If you are looking for dinner party entertainment ideas a Magician is the perfect entertainment for your dinner party or drinks reception!
Whilst I primarily perform magic for adults I can quite happily entertain any children you have at your event,
If you are looking for some house party entertainment ideas why not surprise your guests with some close up magic at your next party!

Why do you need a Magician at your wedding?
As a professional wedding magician for over 20 years, I have seen the astonishing impact that a magician can have on a special day. Wedding magicians have the ability to create a memorable and engaging experience for both you and your guests, adding a touch of magic to your big day. But why exactly do you need a magician at your wedding? Here are the top reasons to consider hiring a wedding magician for your upcoming celebration.
One of the primary reasons to hire a wedding magician is the ability to break the ice. A wedding is an event that brings together family and friends from various walks of life. As such, it is not uncommon for guests to feel a little awkward or out of place when they first arrive. Wedding magicians excel in breaking the ice, drawing people together with their fascinating tricks and interactive performances. By hiring a skilled magician, you can ensure that your guests feel welcome and relaxed from the moment they step foot in the venue.
Additionally, wedding magicians can fill the gaps during during the day, such as the transition from the ceremony to the reception or while guests wait for their meals to be served. Wedding magicians can keep the atmosphere alive by providing a captivating form of entertainment. With their enchanting performances, they can keep your guests entertained and engaged, ensuring your wedding breakfast is full of cheers and excitement!
Another reason to hire a wedding magician is the personalised entertainment they provide. Every couple is unique, and their wedding should be a reflection of their individuality. Wedding magicians can tailor their performances to match your specific theme, style, or preferences. This flexibility allows you to create a bespoke entertainment experience that is perfectly suited to your tastes and your guests’ interests, ensuring that everyone is captivated by the magic unfolding before them.
Moreover, incorporating a wedding magician into your entertainment lineup can create a series of unforgettable moments that will be etched in the memories of all who attend. From jaw-dropping illusions to heartwarming tricks that involve your loved ones, a magician can ensure that your wedding day is filled with magical surprises that will be talked about long after the event has ended.
Wedding magicians are also an excellent choice for entertainment that appeals to guests of all ages. One of the challenges of planning a wedding is finding entertainment that caters to people from all generations. Whether it is an intimate close-up magic show or a grand illusion on stage, a magician’s performance can create a sense of wonder and excitement that transcends age barriers, making it an ideal choice for a wedding celebration.
Finally, having a magician at your wedding provides a fantastic opportunity for your photographer to capture incredible moments. As the magician performs their tricks and illusions, the reactions of awe and amazement on your guests’ faces will make for priceless photos and videos that you will treasure for years to come.
