Close up magic

Book an incredible close up magician
Magic that’s performed close up in the palm of your hand often leaves you wondering if it’s actually the real deal! Dan Hudson excels at close up magic and mingle magic, and his incredible sleight of hand ensures that guests are absolutely amazed.

Close up magic show

A close up magic show requires superb skill and when Dan Hudson is performing, you’d be forgiven for thinking he was using a real magic wand. Performed as table magic during a dinner party or wedding, or mingling through a crowd, his close up magic tricks combine modern magic with playful banter. Guests are stunned as money appears to change value in the palms of their hands, and objects disappear – only to reappear in unexpected places.

Mingle magic to break the ice

Mingle magic is a brilliant way to entertain guests at a formal cocktail party, or while wedding guests are having pre-drinks as bridal photos are being taken. Dan Hudson is a true entertainer, and his ability to work a crowd and keep them completely astounded and entertained is phenomenal. He is a skilled close up magician, and this combined with great personality, charm and humour makes him an excellent choice for any party.

Magic never fails to impress

“The dust has settled now and I wanted to say a huge thanks for Saturday night. We had an incredibly special night with friends and family and you created the wow factor for us. We will totally be recommending you for future events.”
Sue Flanders

"I have received so many compliments for last night’s event and the majority were for you! You managed to tailor our requirements perfectly, everyone enjoyed themselves and many have commented that they had never had so much fun at a company event; mission accomplished! It was great, ‘winging it’ as you did and allowing the night to flow without adhering to any strict agenda made everything seamless and is testimony to your professionalism and experience. And what better testimonial than to have us make enquiries as to your availability for a Christmas event later in the year! You were brilliant, I had no doubt that you would be able to assist with my plans but you completely surpassed them. I very much hope to use your services again, and have no hesitation in recommending you.
Jo Hams - Avnet

It was a great way to get the party going and a fantastic ice breaker. I am sure we will being using your services again.”
