Your magic was impressive, your ability to connect with everyone was faultless and your dry humour was the icing on the cake!

    "Magic Philip was absolutely amazing! To be honest wasn’t sure what to expect and thought it would be your typical magician, however I couldn’t have been more wrong! There’s nothing ordinary about Philip! What a start to a great party, he gets the party mixing right from the start and very humorous…..our guests were all very impressed, the best we have seen and would most definitely use him again. Forget booking anyone else!"

    Wow - what a magical evening (pun very much intended!). Philip was fabulous and was the glue that held the private dinner party for my wife’s 50th together - he was immediately very engaging and put everyone at their ease, before launching into a series of funny and amazing tricks at the start of the night and then continued more magic between courses. The show was great and his humour throughout was hilarious - everyone (aged 15-76) loved the evening and all said that Philip was superb. Highly recommended!

    "Haven't laughed so much in ages... you were utterly fantastic. You were amazing and everyone thoroughly enjoyed your entertainment. I have been asked more than once when we can next book you. Olivia is already planning her 21st! You deserve all of the praise and every single person who was there, said you were hilarious and impressive. Still can’t get my head round the pothole trick, it was brilliant! In fact the only complaint from the night was from Adam, as when he got home he didn’t have a pool, helipad or orchard! I can guarantee we will be booking again as you totally made the night x”

    "Magic Philip attended our ‘Outdoor Festival’ wedding - we had a special Tipi tent for the kids where he performed an amazing magic show - he involved them all and got even the most reluctant to join in - allowing the adults to enjoy the ceremony! Then in the evening he moved into the adult tent with close up magic entertaining everyone. He came to us from a strong recommendation and we can see why - a great entertainer adding a lot to any event."

From the minute you walked through the door (with my wonderful balloon bouquet) you had us all in stitches. I also loved the way you liaised with the Chef etc so I didn’t have to think about anything apart from enjoying your magical show. We will definitely book you again when we have a get together."

    Thank you for a fantastic day. Much conversation yesterday and today has been about your show; starting with your very presence on the day as the team were not aware that you would be entertaining them; the quality of your magic and your general approach was thoroughly entertaining. Thank you very much for such a memorable event and look forward to seeing again another time.
