London Magician Review
“Thank you for your fabulous showing at Annabel’s. You were terrific and we really loved having you there. There has been much discussion since then about ‘how did he do it?!’ for various tricks you did. The mind-reading (Polina’s drawing, guessing the word I was thinking of from the book) and the bottle through the table. All very popular as was your spontaneous sense of humour. It was all really fantastic and we have been talking about how fun it was since then. It made me feel like a kid again. I will definitely invite you back for another event some time soon. Congratulations on your talent which I am sure comes with many years of hard work. Let me know if you are ever performing somewhere in London so I can come and see you again.” Colin, Rhone Group, London
London Table Magician
Alan has been performing as a table magician in London for more than 20 years. The magic performed is small with familiar items, many of which are borrowed from guests. The magic can happen in the hands of either the magician or the guest. The term ‘table magician‘ came from when people saw magicians hopping from table to table in restaurants, but it’s just a term. You don’t actually need a table. All you need are people who want first class entertainment from one of London’s top close up magicians.
“You were great, and we’ve had lots of compliments about you from our guests. We’ll no doubt pass on your details to anyone asking for them and we’ll definitely recommend you. Thank you!” Eva Orton, 1st Floor Restaurant, Notting Hill, London

Reviews for London Magician, Alan Hudson
Dear Alan. You were totally sensational and had everybody in awe of your tricks. The magician at Lesley’s 50th will be talked about for some time I suspect. Several of us still had our bent forks and playing cards the next morning as we still pondered “How did he do it??”. Thanks for being so great with the youngsters. They too thought you were phenomenal – and all talk of rabbits in hats was long forgotten. I will certainly recommending you to anyone needing a first class magician. Lesley Burton, SenseToys Limited, London
“Dear Alan, Back from honeymoon and finally taking stock of all that happened at Eltham Palace. Right at the top of our priority list is to let you know the fabulous feedback that we have had from all our friends who were mesmerised (and traumatised…..) by your magic. We absolutely loved it too, of course; a real highlight of our spectacular day! It has been the subject of phone calls and e-mails, so Nicola and I would like to thank you again and we will make sure that we name-drop when the occasion arises as we want others to share our enjoyment. A massive thank you.” Chris and Nicola Holmes, London
We booked Alan to mingle amongst our guests at our wedding reception. I am very pleased to say it was worth every penny. His close up tricks were nothing short of exceptional and there were many squeals of delight and astonishment throughout the afternoon from our confused, bewildered and thoroughly entertained guests. His banter was really funny too. Alan’s the real deal, highly recommended. Jen Lawrence, London
We booked Alan for a 60th birthday party and we’re so glad we picked him over all the others! There were around 100 guests in various different rooms throughout the house and Alan managed to work his way around all of them, amazing everyone with his tricks. I’ve seen a few close up magicians at events before but never anything to this level. He should have his own TV show! Thanks again and we’ll definitely be booking Alan again soon. I can’t recommend him highly enough! Steve, Guitar Village, London
“It was nice to finally meet you last night, and I just wanted to thank you for adding to everyones enjoyment of Ruth’s party. Everyone said how amazing you were. Thanks again and we will certainly use your services again in the future.” Karen – Browns, Hackney Road, London
“Everyone’s still talking about you, and even my most hardened, rationalist, cynical friends are half-convinced there’s actual sorcery involved. My daughter went to sleep murmuring about her magic fork, and is right now reading a book entitled ‘Illusionology’. Julia Rochester, London
