Close up magic...

Hello and thanks for visiting Magic up Close

If you are planning an event or special occasion then my amazing walk-around magic can provide some brilliant entertainment to add to your event.

I’ve been performing magic professionally for 20 years at a wide range of events, I’ve won numerous competitions and hold the “Close-up Magician of The Year” award a record eleven times from the Bristol Society of Magic. I’m also a member of the most prestigious Magician’s club The Magic Circle in London. I’ve performed everywhere from Lord Mayor’s mansions to village halls, in clubs and castles, on the SS Great Britain and river cruisers, football stadiums and polo clubs and too many hotels and country houses to mention.

Whether at tables or mix & mingle style, my close-up magic provides amazement, laughter and startling entertainment for your guests to enjoy. For a more formal show I can also perform a comedy act of cabaret style magic including classic stage illusions.

If you need advice about the best time for magic at your party then please let me know, otherwise please read on to see how I can bring some magic to your event and make it a sparkling occasion!
I look forward to hearing from you. Paul Preager

Cabaret Magician

For something very special I also perform a comedy style ‘stand-up’ magic act. It’s great entertainment for an audience of 20 to 100 or more people. It’s especially suitable for family get-togethers, after dinner entertainment, fund raising events, banquet events and small scale theatre venues.

As well as several tricks including members of the audience is the dramatic levitation of a volunteer and the classic sawing a person in half. Running from 20 up to 50 minutes it can be tailored to suit your event and provide some fantastic entertainment for all ages to enjoy from teens upwards.
