Full Biography

Having received the coveted awards of The Magic Circle Close-up Magician of the Year and a former Tatler 'Party Entertainer of the Year', Fay Presto has been personally invited to entertain HM The Queen on no less than six occasions, as well as performing for every other senior member of the Royal family.

A Gold Star Member of The Inner Magic Circle, Fay’s unique style of performance and ability to connect with an audience has set a standard within the magic industry.

In the world of show business Fay has performed for the likes of Sting, JK Rowling, Madonna, Tom Hanks, Michael Caine, Eric Clapton, Sir Elton John, Sir Cliff Richard, Sir Paul McCartney, Dustin Hoffman, Billy Connolly, Jude Law and Sean Penn to name but a few. Corporate clients include 10 Downing Street, Mirimax, Arthur Anderson, Aston Martin, Tesco, Zenica Pharmacuticals, Citalia, Asprey, Bulgari, HomeBase, Shell, WestLB, Coca Cola and Yahoo.

The BBC's 40 Minutes documentary 'Illusions of Grandeur' showing Fay in all aspects of her home and professional life, produced one of the most positive responses that the BBC has ever had from the public and is considered one of the best ever in the 40 Minutes series. Other television appearances include the BBC’s History of Magic series, Emmerdale (as herself), Wogan, Talking Telephone Numbers, Paul Daniels’ Secrets, The Late Late Show (Gae Byrne), Stuff The White Rabbit, This Morning, James Whale, Trick on 2, Dinner Dates and The Car's The Star.

Fay Presto has been the resident magician at famed Langan's Brasserie in London's Mayfair for over 25 years and, when not entertaining at corporate or private events, can be seen wowing and amazing diners at a number of other top London restaurants.

Most recently, Fay has also take her close-up magic to the big stage, touring the UK and performing alongside four other top magicians in the Champions of Magic show.

Fay Presto is available for both corporate and private events. Equally at home performing for a few people in the intimate settings of a dinner party, or at a large corporate function, festival, wedding, conference or gala awards night, Fay is guaranteed to lift any event and provide the perfect icebreaker.

When presenting her unique and highly memorable brand of magic, Fay Presto's style is to mix and mingle between the tables during the course of your dinner (or drinks/canapés reception if there is no seated meal) entertaining and ‘wowing’ your guests.

Fay Presto’s after-dinner cabaret show offers the same style of high-impact and astounding magic as the close-up / table entertainment but involves the audience as a whole and can include a number of the guests participating in the show.
