What is a Close Up Magician?
When a magician performs right under your nose they are usually referred to as a ‘Close Up Magician’ (or a close magician).
Performing with small objects such as cards, rings, money, wallets, phones, forks (anything that can be carried in the pockets really). They will either approach small groups or tables or sometimes set a performance area up for people to watch a close up magic show.

Where does a close up magician perform?
The beauty of this style of entertainment is that it works almost anywhere you have people.
Magic is universal. Perfect for international events. It appeals to a broad audience so ideal when you have a mix of people. Everyone loves a bit of magic when performed brilliantly.
Why book this type of entertainment?
It solves a problem. If your problem is “I want my guests to be entertained and think my wedding/event/party was amazing and fun”, then having a brilliant close up magician could be the perfect answer for you. It’s also a great way for your guests to feel special whilst you are chatting to other people. You can’t chat to everyone at the same time.
Having brilliant entertainment is one of the most important parts of any party. Having great guests, gorgeous food and plenty of drink are also important. Usually after the day itself people will forget what they drank and ate, but they WILL remember the entertainment and seeing miracles. They WILL remember how the magician made them feel a sense of child like wonder.
How much is a Close Up Magician?
Magicians all price themselves according to their desirability, skill level, TV, experience etc.
Also, it depends on location and how long you want them for. It’s a bit like asking how much a singer is. The answer varies a lot. For instance, Adele would be more expensive than an X-Factor finalist. And an X-Factor finalist would be more expensive than someone who has done it for 2 years as a bit of a hobby. In turn, they would be more expensive than someone who has just started…. you get the idea.
