Dear Ian

Thank you so much for visiting us for a second time. Both the history lecture and the cabaret show were so much fun and enjoyed by all of our members and volunteers.

Very much hope you will visit us again soon

Ian was amazing – he planned and produced a great close up magic show for my daughter’s 18th Birthday party – he managed to cater for a wide variety of ages from 7 to 91, successfully and entertained all to ensure that all the guests, many of whom had never met, felt at ease and it ensured the ice was broken, a great start to a great evening. I will definitely be booking Ian again.

Dear Ian
Thanks so much for your entertainment at our 50th wedding anniversary family party on 15th August, a small group but all ages and interests. Mixing with them informally before dinner, working your magic was a great way to make people relax and get in the spirit of sharing magic moments. My wife and I particularly enjoyed the finale which brought us into the magic personally. I can thoroughly recommend you to anyone thinking of having a party similar to ours.
Thanks Ian

Dear Ian,

A big ‘thank you’ to you for helping to make my party such a resounding success! Everyone was in awe of your magical powers (the engineers amongst our friends are still busy trying to figure out how you did it!).

We will recommend you to all our friends.

Kind regards

Dear Ian

Thank you so much for helping to make memories for Clayton today. He had a fab time and the magic was the best part of the day he said. The kids were brilliant and enjoyed it so much they didn’t move. The parents were pleased to see something different and were all commenting on how nice it was to see a magician. So thank you.

Thank you regards

Thanks again for a great show last night. You got the balance between children and adults just right, even overcoming my grandson Scott’s scepticism – he’s a budding amateur magician.

I am happy to recommend you.

Dear Ian

I just wanted to say thank you very much for your show yesterday. The room set up looked fantastic and the children really enjoyed it. My oldest son was particularly impressed and it really helped to keep the children occupied whilst the other rooms were being turned around. I think the parents were just as appreciative as the children!

I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to say thank you before you left, we were taken for photographs and then straight into the cake cutting!

Many thanks again though.

Dear Ian

This is in the way of a belated but sincere thank-you for your talents during our recent boat party. Like many people we have only seen magic performed on the television before but it is much more impressive to watch a performance first hand. Our great nephew Ben has recorded a few video clips of your tricks but we still can’t see how you do it! Thank you again for your valuable contribution to a successful and memorable day.
Best wishes

Carolyn & Richard, July 2013
Thank you Ian for a marvellous performance. Had great feedback from our guests too!! We can all now spin a plastic plate…. my husband wants me to try with the crockery but I think I will stick to plastic!!! We had a lovely party and thank you for helping us celebrate.

All best wishes,

Ginny May, July 2013

Dear Ian

Thank you Ian for the close up magic at our wedding reception on Saturday. You were fantastic and loads of our friends have said so. Brilliant night had by all and we hope we can use you again sometime.

Emma and Ali Temple, August 2012

Dear Ian

Keith and I would like to say how pleased we were that we asked you to attend his 70th birthday at Lysses hotel in July. It was amazing how you held everyone’s attention, our guests were very impressed and delighted with your table top magic. A very welcome addition to our party and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.

Jennie and Keith Jeffery, July 2012

Dear Ian

You were fantastic. I didn’t realise how good it would be. Wendy thought you were fantastic and really enjoyed being part of the show.

Re Table magic 16th December, everyone was most impressed and very happy. Thanks for taking us on.

Thanks for coming to our Christmas party on 9th December. Everyone to whom I have spoken was delighted with your cabaret show and especially that you were able to entertain for 30 to 40 minutes without using bad language like so many today.

“We are so glad we chose you Ian”

“Dear Ian, Thank you very much for such a fantastic contribution to our dinner on Friday. This was just what I had in mind and you were superb. I have had nothing but good reports. I hope you will be able to come again in future.

From Robin Tolson Q.C., Outer Temple Chambers, The Strand, London.


“Ian was the perfect addition to our wedding in June 2010. He did table magic for the adults during the meal and later put on a magic show for the children so we could listen to the speeches in peace! He was professional and very talented and so many of our guests commented on how good he was.”

Debbie and Phil Hacker, 12th July 2010


We just wanted to send a short note to say thank you very much for your work on Saturday at our party. The magic while mingling with our friends & family went down well – lots of people talking about their wedding ring ending up in your wallet – and the children certainly enjoyed the show in the afternoon – you did an excellent job in what was a pretty ‘close’ environment. We appreciated you coming along and working so well with everyone.

All the best,

Matt & Lou.


“Hello Ian,

I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful show yesterday. David has talked about nothing else and his alien octopus is a favourite (why buy expensive gifts?!). Thank you also for his Thomas book, I really appreciate the quality gift and not some cheap plastic rubbish. The other children have all said they enjoyed the show – so maybe we’ll be seeing you again at another venue.


“Dear Ian, I just wanted to thank you for entertaining the young people at our party yesterday. During the afternoon I kept hearing about how amazing you were and how much they all enjoyed it. We particularly wanted something out of the ordinary for them, something they wouldn’t forget and you certainly provided that!

Thank you very much

Val Hollyhock”
