We used Roger to provide entertainment around the tables during our Department Christmas Party. I would have to say he is definitely one of the finest Christmas Party Magicians we have ever seen! 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. His magic skills amazed all.
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.
