I've had the privilege of performing as a festival magician at some of the most lively, vibrant environments imaginable, and I would love to perform at yours next. Whether that means providing entertainment for the family tent or commanding a large stage with a captivating magic show, I make each festival that I attend one filled with magic, wonder, and enjoyment.


When it comes to festival entertainment, a magic show will provide a memorable experience for attendees. In the bustling environment of a festival, my magic shows are a destination, a place where festival goers can gather, take a break from the festival's high energy, and immerse themselves in the captivating world of magic.


For family oriented festivals, a magic show can be a great addition to the family or children's area. It's a chance for kids to sit down, focus, and be entertained with a show that's designed just for them. But it's not just about the children. Parents often find themselves just as enthralled as the kids.


For larger festivals and stages, I will work with to put on my grand magic show that's suitable for the whole family. This show is a spectacle designed to entertain a large crowd, filled with magic that appeals to both the young and the young at heart. I can even include a grand stage illusion where someone from the audience floats in mid air! This is an experience that brings people together, creating shared memories that last long after the festival has ended.

Beyond the excitement of a magic show, another option that works at some festivals and events is drop in magic workshops. This fun, unique activity provides an interactive experience that attendees can visit throughout the day.

For children, magic workshops can be a fun and educational experience, offering them the chance to learn simple magic tricks they can show off to their friends. For adults, these workshops give them the chance to connect with their family and provide a fun break from the usual festival attractions.


Walkaround magic (also known as close up magic) is a unique, personal experience that leaves a lasting impression on festival goers.

Whether I'm walking around entertaining queues, performing table magic at the food court, or creating spontaneous magic moments at various festival spots, close up magic adds an extra layer of fun and entertainment to the festival experience. It gives people a story to tell, from their time at the festival

Asking me as your festival magician to provide walkaround magic will allow us to create an unforgettable, magical experience for everyone who attends.

I can’t recommend Ed highly enough! He recently provided entertainment for my son’s 6th birthday party and he managed to keep 18 kids engaged and thoroughly entertained for 2 hours. He’s such a natural with the kids and made sure he included all of them in some way while of course paying special attention to the birthday boy. All the parents commented on what a great party it was, and some said it was the best birthday party they had been to. He made it a really memorable occasion for us all. Thank you Ed!

We had Ed round for my son’s 9th birthday party. Ed performed a 45 magic show followed by a 30 minute workshop in which he taught the kids two separate tricks. The kids absolutely loved watching Ed perform and then becoming performers themselves! They all went home and immediately showed their parents their new tricks! Would highly recommend, especially for any child who is interested in magic.

Ed performed at my daughters 5th birthday and he was the perfect entertainment. I also have an 8 year old son who had friends there and all the children thoroughly enjoyed it. Non stop giggles and all round smiles. I have already recommended ready, steady magic to friends.
