"Just keep that magician guy, he was minted"
"The magician was my favourite thing."
Mrs Croal, Celebration Event,


From the moment James arrived to the minute he left, everyone was in absolute awe of him! I have never seen a magician live and have always been sceptical that the ones on TV get their audiences to play along, but I honestly now believe magic is real! A week later and I'm still telling people about it!  Thank you James for making our event extra special. You are amazing!

James was so friendly and came over and introduced himself straight away. He had arrived plenty of time before he was supposed to. Our guests absolutely loved him, everyone raved about his tricks and some people even started to follow him around a bit which I hope he didn't notice haha. I would highly recommend James he is incredibly easy to get hold of, completely flexible and is a genuinely nice guy !! Thank you so much for an amazing day I really do believe that it wouldn't have been the same without you :)

You are INSANE! Youve got my head completely pickled! You are just insane, I cant get over what I saw!! Definately recommend

Mr J Stephens, Coed-y-Mwstwr Hotel, Bridgend 2014


My Wife and I had the honour of booking James to perform at our wedding on 28th April 2012 at The Vale Resort.

James gave us a free demonstration of his magic in the comfort of our own home and there was no obligation to book or commit there and then. However, what we seen was enough for us to make an instant booking!

James kept in contact with us leading up to our big day. He arrived on time and very confident, he absolutely Ouse's charisma and is highly entertaining.

He mixed amongst our guests without taking the lime light off us on our special day and left everyone amazed!

James even left the 'Disbelievers' in awe, which in my eyes is a massive achievement!

Well done James, highly recommended!!

Many thanks Mr & Mrs Jones
