Close up magician for weddings, corporate events and parties

James is a well-renowned London magician, who mixes close-up magic with mind reading and legerdemain.

For larger audiences, rather than hiring a close up magician, you can give your event a show-like edge by having London magician James do a fast-paced and fiery cabaret magic act.

Legerdemain (pronounced lej-er-di-mayn) means ‘a skilful use of one’s hands when performing magic tricks’. It is derived from the French ‘leger de main’ meaning ‘light of hand’.
