Great entertainment for our special day!

5 stars - Mathew Knight are Highly Recommended
booked Mathew Knight for their Wedding in Staffordshire February 2020

“Matt joined our wedding for the evening reception, where we had 80 guests. He made his way around the crowds and to each table and really impressed. You could hear applause and cheers as he made his way around. I couldn’t wait to witness his magic and what I saw was incredibly cool. I still can’t work it out! I won’t spoil anything but the whole party were left amazed and scratching their heads. Matt is entertaining, funny, puts an audience at ease with his engagement and charisma and is a great addition to any event! I highly recommend Matt and his absolutely fantastic magic!”

The best magician ever for our party!

booked Mathew Knight for their event in All foreign locations

“Mathew is an absolutely amazing magician. He had everyone engaged and desperately trying to figure out how he was doing all these tricks, which of course they couldn't. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their evening, Mathew circulated through our whole party and engaged with pretty much everyone. I would definitely invite Mathew to return to any of our events, as he guarantees a great evening with every trick he has up his sleeve (excuse the pun!).”

Absolutely, totally and completely amazing.

“Mathew was fantastic from start to finish. His magic was mesmerising and left the guests speechless. Not only did he perform magic for the adult guests he also tailored his performance for our younger guests who proceeded to follow him round all evening. He blended In perfectly and we couldn’t have asked for a better magician. We have heard nothing but positive reviews from all our guest saying how brilliant he was.

Full Biography

*Official member of The Magic Circle
*Unusual and Intriguing
*Surprising and Fun
*A Fantastic 'Ice Breaker'
*Interactive magic that gets people talking
*Highly Memorable

Mathew Knight specialises in high impact contemporary close-up magic and is an offical member of the Magic Circle. His interactive style of entertainment is captivating and amazing, which creates an unusual experience and a lasting memory. He is highly rated, professional and unique, making him a greatly sought after performer.

Mathew is confident in his approach and he likes to laugh and joke but at the same time he is sensitive to his audience and careful not to be brash or rude. His laid back, friendly approach usually makes guests feel at ease and his aim is to engage with and amaze people of all ages and backgrounds.

The kind of magic Mathew performs incorporates everyday objects such as cards, coins, wallets, phones, rings, fire etc to create feats of impossibility that people can enjoy and remember. It's a similar style of magic to Dynamo or David Blaine but with his own unique approach.

Close-Up Magic
Imagine the look on your guests’ faces when Mathew amazes and astounds them with his unique blend of close-up magic. He entertains groups of people by performing the impossible with everyday objects from his (and the spectators’) pockets.

Mathew Knight offers close-up magic in the following forms:

-Mix and Mingle
If you need a great way to generate atmosphere and provide a talking point, Mathew’s ‘Mix and Mingle’ magic is the answer! By approaching guests in a friendly manner, Mathew provides astonishing, interactive magic to entertain them whilst they are standing, sitting or enjoying a drink.

-Table Magic
If you want to help things run smoothly at your celebration dinner, ‘Table Magic’ is a wonderful way to provide great entertainment as people await food. Often creating laughter and excitement, Mathew moves from table to table between meal courses and presents his miraculous feats to every group of diners.

The Mini Cabaret Show
If you’re having an intimate dinner with guests seated at a single table or a small party in a private room (up to 30 guests) you can book a show to amaze them with memorable live entertainment, suitable for all ages.

Typically consisting of 2 short sets around 15-20 minutes each, spread over a time window of your choice (up to 2 hours). Most clients book for set 1 after the main course and set 2 during coffee. This allows your guests to see lots of magic, and provides a great talking point as the night goes on

Mathew’s relaxed and friendly style gets your guests engaged and amazed with modern close up magic which has the feel of a mini show!

Requirements: There are no stage, sound or lighting requirements necessary. Just let the venue and caterers know, and consider the table layout so that there’s a space to perform. If your guests are not eating, just gather them into a group and get ready to be entertained
