Matt was head and shoulders above the rest
We wanted a close-up magician for a special family Birthday party, and researched those available in Kent. Matt was head and shoulders above the rest, and was very helpful and accommodating when we phoned. He was absolutely fantastic, and everybody loved him. We were enthralled with his magic, and his friendly banter was perfect. Our ages ranged from 5 to 70, and we couldn't stop talking about him throughout the evening. We would thoroughly recommend Matt to anyone who wants a fun and entertaini

I cannot recommend Matt highly enough. He is a very charismatic young man and carried out his magic tricks with confidence, charm and a very professional manner. Our party were left dumbfounded by the tricks he performed and there is no doubt in my mind that he is destined for great things in the world of magic. Book Matt and you will not be disappointed.
