Full Biography

Mark is undoubtedly one of the most sought after Magicians within the UK. With years of professional working experience under his belt, you know you are on to a safe bet booking him! Brides and grooms, corporate bosses and many others ask for Mark by name, because they know he will entertain guests in a unique fashion and create long lasting memories for guests and clients.

He isn’t one of those cheesy sorts of magicians you so often see. He doesn’t dress in ties or braces covered in playing cards, he doesn’t wander around wearing a jacket covered in pin badges of little white rabbits sat in top hats. He doesn’t walk around with a sparkly magic wand in his pocket. Magic often has a bad name because of this stereotype, but Mark is here to break the mould. He dresses in a sharp and sophisticated style, which will make you sit back and realise that magic has been reborn!

As a close up Magician, Mark will approach your guests in a friendly but unobtrusive fashion, and within minutes he will have them screaming with bewilderment and laughter at the micro miracles he performs inches from their faces. Many of Mark’s repeat clients knew they were on to a safe bet with him – not necessarily because they could see the tricks he can do, but because they heard the response he gets and can feel the atmosphere he creates in any room he walks in to.

Most often, Mark is asked to perform as a table magician at weddings. He works at around 80 weddings per year, so knows exactly how to do it right. The most important thing about the wedding day is the bride and groom, and he knows this, so he won’t try to steal the limelight, but he will help to make it the most memorable day for the guests and the happy couple. Knowing that weddings rarely run to schedule, he can help to disguise any little hiccups that may occur and will use his experience to break the ice for guests who may not have met each other before, making the rest of the day a lot easier to handle for guests and the newlyweds alike.

Mark is also a regular on the corporate scene performing his mind-blowing miracles as a close up magician. From groups of a dozen to hundreds of guests at a banquet or award ceremony, Mark can adapt his performance skills to give you the best value for money, and the best entertainment available around. Your delegates will remember the night for years to come, and your distinguished guests and shareholders will know you only operate with quality, which will shine through with Mark’s performance.

Mark’s corporate clients include such names as Tesco, Cable and Wireless, Tri-pack Plastics, BMW, Audi, Mini, Shell and many, many more. They all have something in common. They all came to Mark with a clear objective – to obtain the very best entertainment possible, and to prove to their guests that they are the best, through and through. Your company can and will benefit from using Mark as a Mix and Mingle Magician at your next corporate event, no matter how big or small.


Regardless of what event you are trying to organise, Mark is the ideal choice to add something that little bit different. From product launches to parties, from weddings to Works Christmas do’s, by hiring Mark, you will have people remember the date for years to come.
