My name is Stephen James. Many years ago when living abroad I became friends with a magician who introduced me to the art of magic.
Fast forward to today, I have now left 9-5 office life and am a full time close-up magician.
I specialise in performing magic across the UK, and my goal is simply to make the events amazing for all the guests.
Like the TV magicians who walk up and amaze people on the streets, I go up to people and amaze them, both in drinks reception “mix and mingle” events and “table hopping” at meals.
After many years performing I was honoured to be accepted into The Magic Circle, an internationally recognised organisation, and arguably the most prestigious one a magician can be a member of.
This job has taken me to lots of places. From performing in living rooms to landmark venues such as The Shard, Madame Tussauds, The BT Tower, Epsom Race Course and The London Aquarium.
My goal is to create a very interactive and personal experience for everyone who sees me. Audiences will see people being influenced, minds being read and impossible things happen with cards, money, fire and items borrowed from the spectators.
It is normal to hear gasps, laughter and applause throughout events as I work the room. I have entertained at countless corporate and private events as well as for many leading UK entertainment agencies.
If you are planning an event then I would absolutely LOVE to be part of it!
