About the Act:

Close Up Magic Champion delivers a brand of magic ideal for weddings and events because it works in most venues, is highly interactive and appeals to people of all ages. He is a master in helping break the ice between guests and party goers who don’t know one another, keep everyone entertained and create a great atmosphere that people will remember.

His style of mix and mingle, walk around and table magic is very interactive and is ideal in bringing people together. Close Up Magic Champion takes it upon himself not just blow people away with amazing tricks, but to interact with guests to make sure everyone is having fun and enjoying themselves. Lulls and drops in energy at weddings are common, whether it’s while the happy couple are off getting the photos taken, the after meal “turn around time” or as people starting to arrive for the evening do. Hiring Close Up Magic Champion as your wedding entertainment can change all that, not only keeping your guests happy – but leave them amazed and give them something to talk to each other about for the rest of the day! And it’s not just weddings where Close Up Magic Champion can be utilised…

Whether you’re looking for entertainment for a birthday party in Leeds, a Christmas party in Wakefield, a corporate dinner in York or a Christening in Sheffield, Close Up Magic Champion can help you. Every party is different and he is happy to discuss your needs so that we can come up with what is best for your event.

For example, Mix and Mingle style magic is ideal for most parties, proms and events, this is my most popular offering. This style of magic works at hotels, restaurant’s, bars, house parties and most other venues. As a walk around magician, Close Up Magic Champion will mix with guests, getting groups together and perform amazing magic in their hands. This close up style is hugely popular now thanks to the Dynamo and David Blaine TV specials. Most people dismiss these tricks as camera trickery when they see it on TV, so when they see it happen right in front of them they won’t believe their eyes!

Alternatively, Table Magic can be very popular. As a table magician, Close Up Magic Champion will go from table to table doing a 5 to 10 minute show for each group. This is mostly booked for corporate dinners, weddings and formal dinners but can work anywhere where people are sat at tables. This close up entertainment style is very interactive and really helps break the ice, especially useful if people at the table wouldn’t usually sit together. The magician will work with the serving staff to entertain in between courses so not to interrupt people while eating. Magic works really well to fill any breaks in food service and other disruptions for larger parties.

Parlour Shows can also be a great source of entertainment. This is a close up magic show for a small number of guests. Unlike stage magic, this is done up close and doesn’t require a stage or an electric power supply. This makes it an ideal form of entertainment for small parties. The parlour show can also be performed as a secret room for larger parties. This is where the Magician is in a room at a party and the guests are asked to come in in small groups but asked to not tell other guests what is in the room, but can say how it made them feel. This creates a real buzz and fun environment and is something different that your guests won’t expect!

Close up magic is very flexible and will work in a huge range of venues, both inside and out. Close Up Magic Champion is based in West Yorkshire and has entertained at weddings in Leeds, Wakefield, Manchester, Bradford, Sheffield, York, Harrogate. He’s also more than happy to travel further afield. Enquire now and see if you can secure his magic for your next big event.

We booked Close Up Magic Champion for our wedding in October, Chris was absolutely amazing, he worked his way around everyone in the room and literally left everyone speechless, even the most cynical of guests were absolutely amazed. Truly one of the best magicians I have ever seen, our guests are still talking about how brilliant he was months later. But apart from wowing our guests Chris was a dream to work with, He worked his socks off and literally didn’t stop until it was time for us to sit down for our meal. He looked really professional, in fact many thought he was a guest until he performed a trick which made for a great surprise. Kids and adults adored him. Would not hesitate in recommending him, thank you Chris for making our day extra special.

Wow - thank you to Close Up Magic Champion for entertaining our guests at my daughters Claire's wedding to Lee at Kings Croft Hotel on Friday. He was brilliant, so many great comments received from family and friends saying how good he was. Chris encouraged the kids to get involved with the tricks which was great, as it was a family wedding and they loved it. Chris has been very professional throughout the booking and always answered my emails promptly, wouldn't hesitate to book him again or recommend him, thank you again......

Never believed in actual magic until watching Close Up Magic Champion do his thing. Wow! We booked Chris as our magician for Our wedding and he honestly had all our guests amazed and entertained the whole time he was there. He is worth every single penny and I think it is a very good price for what Chris has to offer. All our guests couldn’t stop talking about him and how good he was. I’m so glad we booked with Chris. He was polite, professional and such a friendly person. He was such a highlight of our evening. Thank you so much Chris for entertaining the whole of our guests! Such a wide variety of different magic that people were honestly astounded by. I will be recommending you to anyone in need of an actual wizard! As I believe you are.

Close Up Magic Champion came to perform at my wedding reception and was nothing short of amazing. Extremely attentive and easy going in the lead up to the big day. We were looking for a slight of hand Magician to help spark discussion between guests from different parts of our lives and he didn't disappoint! The room was full of cheers and gasps and whats more, he was exceptional with the children; leaving one with high hopes of becoming a Magician too. 100% recommend!

Close Up Magic Champion performed at our wedding during the drinks reception and during down time at the tables once people had eaten their meals. He was fantastic! The guests loved him and found him to be friendly, personable and we were wowed by his magic tricks. Chris was really easy to work with and was very flexible and easy going right from when I first contacted him to when he arrived on the day to slight changes. A fantastic performance and great value for money. I would highly recommend Chris for any occasion. Thanks for making our day extra magical 💫
