Corporate Reviews…

We absolutely love magic so we were super excited when I heard James was coming to our ASOS site in Barnsley to perform for our colleagues. Before today, I’d never seen close up magic, only watched magicians on the TV.

The different tricks that James performed were mind blowing! How does he do what he does is beyond me?  Thanks for coming to ASOS and entertaining our colleagues over the three shifts, you was brilliant!

I first met James at a Wedding and was blown away by his magic. So when we organsied our leadership conference and  needed something to liven the evening up I knew we could rely on James.

He entertained the team of 100 for an hour between meals and then entertained everyone whilst he was on stage. He had everyone amazed and earned the respect of the CEO by stealing his watch! Highly recommended!

Christian Boulter, Sales Director,
Symington’s Ltd.

James took time and effort to come to meet with us first to showcase his professional approach, wit and charm – as well as wow us with a few of his amazing tricks.

James has an instant warmth which invokes trust and he is extremely personable and funny. His tricks defied belief, and are very energetic and engaging. James went above and beyond at our actual event, which was attended by almost 500 people.

Reviews from the brides…


Mr & Mrs Gosby

James was definitely a highlight of our wedding. 4 months on, our guests, myself and husband still talk about how talented James is.

He spent some time with just myself and my husband before he saw to our guests and we were able to have some amazing photos of James showing us some of his magic.

 Our guests were mind blown from James and he left all the guests amazed, providing great fun entertainment for our evening reception. Would definitely recommend! Thank you James for being a special part of our special day!

Mr & Mrs Stewart

James was simply spectacular at our wedding. Our guests were left speechless and loved James so much so that one of our ushers spent the evening following him around asking for one more magic.

Liam and I got our own little magic show which I loved and was a wonderful touch. James is so much more than just a magician, he’s a wonderful person and goes out his way to make your guests laugh.

We would 100% say to anyone to book James for any event they had.

Mr & Mrs Hutchinson

We booked James well in advance, we were so excited and decided to keep it a secret from our guests. 

Their faces and the images that were captured were truly amazing and memorable. They tell a story which is what we loved so much about it.

He was so capturing throughout the whole of the evening and the guests were fascinated by him! Our guests are still talking about him now and we love looking over at our photos of James making everyone laugh. James is incredible and highly recommended for any event!

James is recommended by…

Enjoy some magic at your perfect wedding.
