Close Up Magician Hire Edinburgh

Close-Up Magic (Table Magic) is the most intimate and personal form of magic – with many of the effects taking place in the spectators’ own hands. The magic is combined with Gary’s gentle humour to put guests at ease, creating a relaxed atmosphere. It provides a talking point, creating a topic of conversation for the early part of the event – and also helps to make your event memorable long after it has concluded. Close-Up Magic is often performed by the table during a meal – at the start, between courses, or towards the end. Magic and humour skilfully blended to entertain your guests, making the event all the more enjoyable and memorable. However, it is not limited to ‘table-side’ situations. Indeed it can be performed virtually anywhere that people are to be entertained. It does not require any special staging or lighting – it just needs an audience. It can be performed as Mix & Mingle Magic – often at the start of an event.
