Magician Entertainment

There are different types of magicians for hire, so you need to make sure you hire a magician that is suitable for your event.

Close up / Table magician: this type of magician is perfect for adults and is usually booked for corporate functions, dinners, private parties. Frederic's magic tricks and sleight of hand with cards, coins and other objects will certainly impress your guests. Frederic also performs mindreading effects up close and surrounded by spectators. These demonstrations were made famous on TV by Derren Brown. Whilst guests are standing around during the drinks reception, he performs his magic in “Mix and Mingle” conditions, strolling amongst the guests. During dinner, he makes sure everyone is entertained by performing magic around the tables in-between courses. As a table magician, Frederic delights his audiences with his own expression of contemporary close up table magic.

This type of magician can sometimes be referred to as "Street Magician" when it is performed in very informal conditions.

Wedding Magician / Wedding Entertainer: couples organising their wedding are often in search of something a little bit different that will appeal to their wedding guests (and the different age groups invited). Frederic is a very popular choice as a wedding magician. His table and close up magic is ideal for a wedding. His entertainment is the perfect ice-breaker during the drinks reception and will create a great atmosphere around the tables during the wedding breakfast. Frederic performs at weddings across the UK and France. Please see magician for wedding for more information. You can hire him anywhere in England, Scotland or Wales.
