We wanted a close-up magician for a special family Birthday party, and researched those available in Kent. Matt was head and shoulders above the rest, and was very helpful and accommodating when we phoned. He was absolutely fantastic, and everybody loved him. We were enthralled with his magic, and his friendly banter was perfect. Our ages ranged from 5 to 70, and we couldn't stop talking about him throughout the evening. We would thoroughly recommend Matt to anyone who wants a fun and entertaining event, with a difference.
Matt was totally BRILLIANT 🤩!! Everyone keeps on mentioning how great you were and my kids now all want to become magicians!! 🤪 Thank you so much for doing the long drive for our party 🎉 we loved having you. Matt really made our party that super special and we would recommend him to anyone.
Matt provided the perfect touch of extra entertainment we needed to amuse the dinner guests at our 50th Anniversary Party, going from table to table. As close as we were, none of us could spot the secret of his amazing tricks. Thank you to Matt, for mystifying us with such charm!
