booked Sam Holt for their Wedding in West Yorkshire September 2022

“Last minute booking due to being let down by another act for our wedding, super impressed by Sams professionalism even turned up early to check out the venue and familiarise himself. Guests were really WOWd by Sams act, it made the welcome drinks more of a discussion point and a bit of an ice breaker for those that didn’t know each other. Would highly recommend.”

Our minds were completely blown! INCREDIBLE

booked Sam Holt for their Wedding in Cumbria August 2022

“From start to finish I could not speak highly enough of Sam! He arrived on time and worked tirelessly and inconspicuously to make sure he didn’t take the shine off of the Bride on the day. Not one guest left without mentioning how much they were in awe of the magician but it got even better! Sam took the Bride and Groom to the side and performed a special routine on us. I still don’t know how exactly he did what he did but I’m so so grateful that he did! I’m a big fan of magic and this really really made our day so much richer! Sam is worth every penny and some, I would recommend anyone looking for wedding entertainment should book Sam who was incredibly friendly, approachable and down to earth!”

Sam Holt - Outstanding.

Sam Holt is a rising magician and mind reader from Manchester.

Focusing on close up magic, with recent clients including Olivia Henry Associates, Cheshire Life, Begbies Traynor and Beechwood Cancer Care, Sam is now ready to work the UK and make your events unforgettable!

“Sam is an exceptional magician who left our guests in awe. His magic amazed everyone including Coronation Street actress Sally Dynevor. Simply the best close up magician I have ever seen.”
Angela Gray (Beechwood Cancer Care)


"It's not often at my age I am left gasping with astonishment but that's how it was when I watched the magic of Sam. His sleight of hand has left me still scratching my head in disbelief. What he did was impossible! I defy anyone not to be amazed."
Gordon Burns (TV Presenter)

"I can't recommend Sam highly enough. Fantastic illusions, professional and a joy to work with. My clients absolutely loved him."
Jacqueline Hughes-Lundy, (Olivia Henry Associates)

“I’ve watched Sam at work – very closely – and I just don’t know how he does it. Very annoying! He’s entertained and baffled guests at our Cheshire Life parties many times and he never seems to be short of new tricks. Sam is an amazing magician.”
Louise Allen-Taylor (Cheshire Life)

“We hired Sam to perform magic for our corporate Christmas drinks reception, I found Sam to be an excellent entertainer who dazzled our guests with some amazing magic tricks. Our evening was a huge success and I feel that Sam contributed to this success by establishing a fantastic rapport with guests. His personal approach created a real buzz of excitement. We look forward to booking Sam for future events.”
Natalie Shaw (Begbies Traynor)
