Darren is magic! My guests were mystified and spellbound!Dame Esther Rantzen DBE
I booked Darren for a private event of about 200 people last month. He was hilarious, fun, and very interactive with the audience. We would definitely have him back again to do more magic. Brilliant job! Private client, March 2014

We hired Darren for a private event last night in Central London – my head is still spinning trying to figure out how he did those tricks! 100% recommend, fantastic entertainer. Thanks Darren!Lora Thomson, Barclaycard
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Darren as, not only is he an excellent magician, he is also a truly nice guy and was able to establish an instant rapport with his audience, many of whom were from overseas. His brand of magic definitely crossed the cultural boundaries and ensured every guest was talking about himLydia O, OSP Healthcare
