Ed Sumner is a professional magician with experience performing close up, on stage and on television. As part of Ready Steady Magic he inspires children to grow their confidence and imagination!
Hello! I’m Ed and I create incredible magic, enchanting tales and fun times for children and families. I’m passionate about magic and the benefits that it can bring in developing a strong imagination.
As with other art forms, magic can be used to communicate a message. That’s why I love to combine my magic with stories that encourage creative thinking. Those are themes you’ll find in both my live shows and my magic workshops, and it’s the reason why I’m so passionate about helping children to explore magic. How will your story begin?
I’ve also been fortunate to present my magic on television 📺 (and on the radio too). This relatively new direction is a challenge that I look forward to continuing in the future.
As a child a performance by a magician inspired me to take up magic, and I aim to pass on that curiosity about the world to others. I believe that magic is like a doorway through which we can explore the worlds of others, and have a whole lot of fun in the process!
Outside of magic I used to be a science teacher and I have professional training in the theatre too. I’m also very proud of the support that the business side of Ready Steady Magic does to support Acorns Children’s Hospice.
Last but not least, the Ready Steady Magic experience fosters a family atmosphere where the time spent with children is valued and appreciated. I find that many grown ups and older brothers, sisters and cousins love to get involved too. Let the show begin!
