Alex was very good and, in my opinion, excellent value for money. He stayed for several hours entertaining our guests, all of whom said he was excellent. People gravitated towards him when he was entertaining another group. Highly recommend Alex and would definitely use him again. If you like magic, book Alex!

We booked Alex at short notice for a corporate event. The guests absolutely loved the magic and were blown away. I am pleased to thoroughly recommend him. He is reliable, great value for money and most importantly highly entertaining.

After speaking to Alex on the phone it was easy to see how enthusiastic and passionate he is about magic and so I had no hesitation in deciding to hire him to entertain at our wedding. So many people commented afterwards about how good he was and how they were stumped by some of the tricks he did.

We booked Alex for close up work for our recent staff Christmas Party. We had over 60 people at the event and all were very impressed with his work. He was professional and subtle and worked through the evening from the drinks reception then round each table - Excellent Alex and many thanks and would definitely recommend.


My Daughter booked Alex for a couple of hours on her wedding day in between wedding breakfast and evening to entertain guests and he was amazing. He did a magic trick with my granddaughter and a bent coin. Which she was delighted with. When after a couple she lost her coin I got in touch and he posted her some more. Excellent service.

Absolutely brilliant Alex attended our Managers Evening Christmas Party and he actually made the night. The magic is fantastic, you are watching so closely and he is working so close up that you think you will spot how he does it, but you can't... Wouldn't hesitate to book him again very professional outstanding and thank you Alex.

Booked Alex for my wedding **five** years ago and people still talk about him!! I'd seen his close up work at a restaurant previously... I was a reformed sceptic... I just couldn't tell how he did it!! Just re-booked Alex for a birthday party and got the same prompt courteous attention… A good honest professional!

I would definitely recommend magical excellence to other clients. This is the second year we have had their entertainment at our events and they have been exceptional on both occasions.
