Sleight of Hand is a London-based, award winning Close-Up Magician and Sleight of Hand Artist specialising in Close-Up Magic with cards, coins, Rubik’s Cubes and borrowed objects. Bank notes, bottles, cutlery, finger rings, glasses, mobile phones, napkins, pens, rubber bands, wrist watches (stolen but returned) and anything else that happens to be lying around. No rabbits, no doves. Basically common familiar objects, which can always be examined prior, during and after the show. 

The audience were very much impressed – “brilliant” being the main description! Martin, London, Private Event, May 2019

Booking a good Close-Up Magician adds a unique form of entertainment to any social event, helping to break uneasy silences and allowing your guests to interact. It’s also a very practical form of entertainment; as a one man act with a huge repertoire of magic all my props are self contained in my pockets or borrowed, I’m ready to go anywhere at anytime throughout your event and I don't require a specific performing area so I can stop and start at a moments notice.

As a full time pro with over sixteen years experience as an entertainer, performing Magic is Sleight of Hand's full time job. Sixty percent of his work comes from repeat bookings and he has won awards for performing Magic from the Magic Circle and the annual International Magic Convention. He's always on the hunt for new Magic effects to advance his repertoire and he will fool you but he'll be nice about it at the same time, that’s guaranteed!

“We hired Sleight of Hand for our wedding and i can say he did not disappoint. ALL the guest loved him. He had a whole variety of tricks keeping the guests entertained as he made his way around tables and groups to ensure everyone was involved. His communication up until the wedding was great and despite me not replying to his email on the day of the wedding regarding a start time he didn't feel the need to bother us as he knew it was our big day and we were more likely tied up, so he turned up appropriately and began like you would expect from any professional. I couldn't recommend Sleight of Hand enough and wish him all the best. Thanks for helping create such an amazing day Lexi and I.”

“I hired Sleight of Hand for a work event and he went down a storm! The magic was really impressive and he is a really nice guy. My colleagues are still asking me where I found him and if I knew how he did the tricks. Would highly recommend him!”

Sally, Private Event, London, October 2019

Thomas, Private Event, London, August 2019

“Your tricks left a few puzzled faces – mine included – how on earth did you get the coin under my watch!? Ha ha! It was a great act and thank you so much for keeping everyone entertained.”

Katie, Corporate Event, London, August 2019

“Thank you so much for your magical entertainment on Tuesday evening. It was very enjoyable and very well received by all. A few of the boys here would like to know if you are willing to share the secrets of some of your tricks. Although I suspect they won’t have the patience and time they will need to master the tricks.”
