He was very likeable and had just the right level of banter with our guests.

5 stars - Martin Scarborough are Highly Recommended booked Martin Scarborough for their event

“We had a party at home for about 45 guests. Martin arrived on our doorstep promptly and was friendly and professional. He did exactly what I wanted with the 90 minutes he was with us. He got our groups of friends (who didn’t know each other) to mingle and chat immediately instead of there being that potentially awkward first hour or so at the beginning of a party. His magic was very impressive and people were talking about it after he’d left (and still are). He was very likeable and had just the right level of banter with our guests. We will definitely consider using him again at other events”

“Clare, our Alive Network agent was very helpful and provided me with the information and advice I needed. The online availability tool was very good. The fact you could watch movies of some of the acts was also very helpful. Everyone thought Martin Scarborough was great and was well suited to our fairly intimate meal. I would definitely recommend Alive Network and Martin.”

5 stars - Martin Scarborough are Highly Recommended booked Martin Scarborough for their event

“Mary The party went very well. Martin Scarborough worked the crowd for two hours during drinks and canapes, and kept us all entertained and amused. Lots of big smiles and favourable comments. During the meal, Tracey and the musicians were just perfect; our guests loved it! Many favourable comments on Tracey's voice, and quite a few noticed how good the bass and keyboard players were (we had a few musicians in the audience). Altogether a great success! Our thanks to you and to the artists. Michael”

Full Biography

Close-Up Magic Martin’s original and unique approach to Close-up Magic encompasses a mixture of comedy and theatrical elements. The type of magic Martin performs is extreme 'Close-Up Magic‘. Typically in yours and your guest's hands, it’s visual and powerful magic! Martin uses a combination of cards, coins, dice, finger rings, bank notes, pens, cigarettes and rubber bands pretty much everyday objects you can get your hands on! All objects can be inspected before, during and after the performance leaving you and your guests baffled. No big stage illusions, props, trap doors or mirrors, just ‘mind blowing’ magic at close range! He is known for his humour, professionalism and the ability to impress, amaze and captivate audiences at every occasion. Martin will perform in an environment where he can freely walk around, table hop or mingle with guests at the bar, sitting or standing. Martin’s intimate style won't interrupt the flow of your event, but it will certainly provide the ultimate in interactive entertainment for your guests - a sure-fire way to make sure that they have a memorable day or evening. "In short - he'll amaze, amuse and bewilder you with Magic right under your nose leaving you with an unforgettable memory."

"I would like to let you know that we found Martin an excellent magician. He entertained our guests for 2 hours and everyone enjoyed his expertise. We would highly recommend him for other similar functions. I am sure that he has a greater repertoire than was shown on Saturday." Sue Dalley - Wedding Reception

Dear Martin, Many thanks for your services. Everyone loved your magic tricks. Martin & Sharon Blakely’s Wedding Day

Martin, I'm just writing to thank you so much for Sunday night. Everyone who I have spoken to have said how good you were and what a great idea it was. The tricks were once again mind-blowing so if there were any more silences, they meant that we were speechless! I really enjoyed the night and I know that everyone enjoyed meeting you and it was good to see you again. Hopefully I will find another night that you can do soon! Alex Marshall

Many thanks to Martin, a very talented and professional young man who entertained everyone at the Dora Hotel in Zante, August 2006. My husband still hasn’t got a clue how his watch ended up on Martins wrist!! I have never laughed so much in my life; my cheeks have never been the same since. Thank you again Martin we salute you.
