Roy Davenport

PROFESSIONAL STAGE & STROLLING MAGICIAN. Gold-star member of the inner Magic Circle, British Magical Champion and World Magic Prize in Manipulation. London, Norfolk, the South-East and East Anglia.


I am a very experienced award-winning professional magician, having performed on TV from the age of 8 including the BBC, ITV and Channel4 and have worked as a consultant in magic to a number of TV programmes and films. I am a highly skilled magician and sleight-of-hand specialist being a gold-star member of the inner Magic Circle, the UK's youngest ever British Magical Champion and the only British winner of the World Magic Championship in Manipulation since 1961. One of the few professional stage magicians in the UK, I have performed at well-known venues such as the Magic Castle in Hollywood [appearing again in January 2019], the London Coliseum, the Magic Circle, the Hackney Empire, the Blackpool Opera House and the QE2. I am a fourth-generation magician, following in my great-grandfather's footsteps from 1898, and a recipient of the Magic Circle Maskelyne Award for contribution to British magic. This means that I can use a wide range of tricks and effects to delight and amaze your guests; many of which are no longer in use by other magicians today. So whether you are looking for a stage show, a magic stand-up act, interactive close-up magic for your guests, table-top magic during the meal, an after-dinner speaker or a combination throughout your event, I am able to deliver a memorable performance. I consider myself equally an entertainer as a magician and am a graduate of the Mountview Theatre School in London. With the charisma, experience and skills to adapt to the needs of all types of private and corporate events, whether large or intimate, casual or formal, serious or light-hearted. I am London based and available to work throughout the South-East and East-Anglia. My fee is a flat-rate which provides 3 hours of entertainment, there are no hidden extras for travel or set-up time, nor extra VAT or charges. I provide all the necessary equipment, costume and props, so all you have to do is enjoy the occasion along with your guests.
