Close Up Magic is magic that happens right in front of your eyes and in many cases in your own hands. Close Up Magic is perfect for banquets, weddings, gala dinners, summer balls and any other type of event where people are mixing and mingling. There are two really popular types of close up magic. Table Magic- This is magic that is performed from table to table and as such is perfect for events such as wedding breakfasts, gala dinners, summer balls etc. Craig will perform a mini cabaret show at each table entertaining your guests in between courses. This is a great conversation starter and gives the entire table something to talk about throughout any event. Strolling Magic- This type of magic is perfect for champagne receptions, product launches, pre dinner drinks etc. Basically the magician will mix and mingle between your guests moving from group to group entertaining everyone at the event. Craig is considered an expert at close up magic and sleight of hand. He will dazzle your guests with intimate miracles that you might have only seen before on TV. Imagine borrowed coins bending in your own hands, imagine coins visibly flying through the air from one hand to the other, imagine borrowed finger rings linking together. All this and more is possible.
