“Andy performed at our recent wedding, he amazed everyone from 8 - 80yrs old....even me and that takes some doing!!! A fantastic friendly guy, he was top of the 'remember wedding' list. Everybody talked about him, an excellent magician and thank you for making our wedding day so memorable” - Christopher Ward, Bishop Aukland

and what do other say? - 

“we wouldn’t normally hire a magician to host one of our events, but Andy is SO much more than a magician”

-In fact, mind blowing magic is only a part of what I do, and it is a fantastic way to have your guests talk about the event for a long time to come.


“Reliable, rehearsed, relaxed. Definitely all the words I would use to describe when Andy hosts an event! He has a unique way of capturing an audience and delivering a message, and making a memorable event!” -Claire Rushby, My Sisters Place Charity

  • It’s all about finding the right balance of fun and making everyone in the room really feel like they’re part of something special, and the organisers feeling like they’re in good hands!


"Thank you so much for hosting. You managed to get the perfect balance between serious and fun for the various stages of the night” - Maggie Oliver, The Maggie Oliver Foundation

  • As well as being exceptional organised, I pride myself with having great awareness and sensitivity to situations and context, knowing when to raise the energy or command attention. I can read the room and steer it in the direction you want your event to go. 


“We have had the best night, I haven’t enjoyed an event this much in a long time”

  • Entertainment and fun are at the heart of what I do. My aim is to end an evening feeling like I have a roomful of new friends


“I feel like I've know Andy for years!"

  • I aim to bring a warmth to the room and provide you with confidence that your event is in good hands
