"Hi Nick, On behalf of Steph, Andrew and myself I would like to say a big thank you for making our party so special. We had a great night and you were a fantastic surprise guest! The close up magic was incredible - slight of hand at it's best with such slick performance and delivery. Amazing. So many guests have commented on how you blew them away, and we spent Sunday talking about the magic and trying (and failing!) to work out how you bent forks and produced £20 from lemons!! The staff at the hotel were still talking about it today when I popped in and I have given them your details should future clients want a recommendation. I hope we have the privilege of being entertained by you again one day. With our thanks and best wishes"

There are so many table magicians out there, but the messages we sent to each other and seeing your website, I just felt I could trust you to put on a good show.
