One of Manchester's most sought-after close-up magicians


For magician Ian, there’s nothing quite like the immediacy of great close-up magic. Ian specialises in mixing and mingling with guests, drawing a crowd and getting people talking. He revels in performing up close and personal with guests, where he thrives on audience interaction and playful repartee.

From Footballers to TV celebs, politicians to movie stars, everyone who’s seen Ian perform agrees his sleight of hand skills are truly top notch. With clients including Bentley, Lexus, Hitachi and Harrods, he’s a seasoned performer at corporate events, and he goes down a storm at private parties and weddings too.
