“I was looking for an adult magician for something different to entertain my guests for my 50th birthday party at home for over 60 people. I came across Andrew who was a mind reader. I thought this sounds a bit different. I spoke to Andrew over the phone and as he lived near he popped round to me to show off his skills. If I had any doubts they immediately disappeared. Wow we were hooked on him and very impressed. He asked that I didn’t let my guests know he was coming which we did and this worked perfectly. He arrived on the dot and immediately got straight on and mingled with my friends. I would look over at different times through the evening and saw him in different groups entertaining my guests. I could hear the gasps and laughter. He had his audiences eating out of his hands. My friends were coming up to me saying ‘how does he do it’, ‘I’m confused’, ‘wow his was great’. Andrew made sure that he covered all my guests and actually ended up staying over his time. He seems to love what he does which really shows through. If you want something a bit different do not hesitate to book Andrew, you will be amazed, he will not disappoint. I promise.”

Ann Isaac, Private Party, Orsett

“Met Andrew at W last night. What an experience! The man is a legend and we will be hiring him for our next event!”

Rob Hawkins, close up performance at W Hotel, London

“Just wanted to drop a note to say a MASSIVE, MASSIVE thank you for performing at our wedding- you totally made the day and all our guests have not stopped talking about how amazing you are since! You were unbelievable as you always are and I so wish we could have spent more time watching you! It was so incredible to see everyone’s faces as you performed your wonders on them!! I would and have recommended you to everyone and anyone for any occasion and we are already working out when we might be able to see you perform next!! Nothing was ever too much trouble and you really put our minds at rest that the session would go perfectly- as of course it did”

Amy Baxendale, Wedding at New Place Farm, Kent

“Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for entertaining everyone at our wedding on 11th April ! You were superb and people are still talking about you !! We hadn’t told anyone that we had a magician coming and you blended in effortlessly, creating a brilliant ice breaker for the reception drinks ! Our guests were completely enthralled and I know of several who followed you around, they were so mystified (or should I say spooked !) by you ! My now wife was originally reluctant to hire a magician, given that most are the usual sleight of hand tricks, you however are totally different, and I’m glad to say that your ability to amaze, mesmerise and baffle everyone, definitely sets you apart from the norm ! We couldn’t have asked for more and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone, thanks again for a great experience !”

Steve & Vicki Leggett, Wedding at Royal Berkshire Hotel, Sunninghill Berkshire

“Yet again this man surprised us!! How does he do it!!!?? My husband Martin and I started up our own successful business a couple of years ago and in the last 3 months decided to start up another angle to it and wanted to throw a staff (albeit small) get together in order to really get to know each other. We had used Andrew before for my 50th so knew what he was capable of, so after another champagne drinking Friday night, Martin and I wondered out of curiosity what Andrew was up to the very next night and would he indeed be free!? He very kindly offered to come along at such short notice and presented an amazing and baffling 45 min parlour show. There were 14 of us, and he made us all feel special and a part of his show – even my 1 yr old grandson joined in!! The ladies all loved his dark attire and spell-binding eyes and I know for a fact that anyone hiring this man will not be disappointed. If you ever want an assistant…………………..:)”

Teresa Crawford, Parlour show, Essex

“We cannot begin to tell you how many positive comments we had on your performance at our wedding. Everyone there was amazed and couldn’t believe what they were seeing and hearing. It was just so amazing and made our wedding so truly memorable & different. You made such a wonderful addition to our special day and we would like to thankyou for entertaining us all with your wonderful psychological magic…it was just brilliant!!”

Shaun & Vanessa McAuley, wedding at Leez Priory, Essex

“Thank you so much for your amazing, mind blowing and entertaining show. Hopefully you got the vibes that everyone present enjoyed the evening immensely. I also hope that you will gain future engagements from what was an incredibly astonishing show. We will all endeavour to pass the word around. My very best wishes and sincere thanks again.”

Marilyn Huxham, Charity Event at Adastra Hall, West Sussex

“You clearly have a “magical” skill the likes of which I have rarely seen before!”

Steve Scruton, BBC Essex Radio, Essex

“Just wanted to say a huge thanks for entertaining our guests at our wedding. One word, AMAZING!! I dont know how you did it and I dont want to but I was blown away. Everyone that was fortunate enough to experience your magic was blown away. My only regret was that we did not book you for longer as the two hours seemed to fly by. All the guests were asking where I found you and I’ve been asked for your contact details by several of them. People were still talking about it at breakfast the next day. Thanks so much, you were worth every penny”

Emma and Davis Rolfe, Wedding at Gosfield House, Essex

“We would like to take the opportunity to write a few words to say thank you very much for your services on our wedding day. Every single person we have spoken to since the wedding has mentioned how good you were. In fact I know this first hand as I followed you around for pretty much the duration of your stay!! I thoroughly enjoyed your entertainment and the response from all our guests, including my chuffed wife! In short you were definitely money well spent and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone else that would like some wow factor into their wedding/party! ”

Paul & Lola House, Wedding at Quendon Hall, Essex

“Andrew, well, what can I say! Your entertainment was ideal for our small wedding party. You amazed and enthralled our guests and you were accomplished at integrating effortlessly with them. The cabaret was a superb finale to the evening. Not only was your magic amazing but you were very amusing. All of the guests have spent time discussing and deliberating how you do ‘what you do’, they loved the entertainment and felt they had received a special ‘treat’, many have remarked at how our wedding entertainment was refreshingly different and so much fun. It’s not everyday you hire a magician – how on earth do you choose one? I found you via Google and I was looking by location – someone who could easily travel to our venue. Your website was both informative and helpful and your testimonials are obviously all genuine – you were excellent entertainment for our crowd. Our conversations beforehand and the personal recommendation from one of your former clients helped to alleviate a lot of my concerns. I’d be happy to provide additional personal recommendations to anyone who is thinking of hiring you and may have qualms as I initially did (only because I’d never hired an entertainer before). I would recommend you not just for your ability as a magician and entertainer but also on how well this type of entertainment works as an alternative to the usual wedding entertainment (discos/dancing). For our wedding (a ‘black-tie’ dinner for 34) this worked perfectly. Thank you so much, we all thoroughly enjoyed your magic and your charming and fun personality – you were worth every penny!”

Luisa Rossi, Wedding at Yaxley, Suffolk

“Just a quick note to thank you for Saturday night, everybody thought you were amazing and also a really nice person. We all had a fantastic night and you were certainly a highlight.”

Neville Greenwood, 21st Birthday, Black Tiles, Suffolk

“Once again, Andrew produced another fantastic cabaret and close-up show that kept our guests thoroughly entertained throughout the evening of Breyer Groups Charity Golf Day 2009. Andrew received countless rounds of applause as he moved from table to table, demonstrating his amazing trickery and magic skills which added to the evening meal and overall experience of the day. During his after dinner cabaret show, he effortlessly held the attention of over 200 guests whilst he baffled on-lookers with range of psychological illusions which was again, immensely enjoyed by all. Andrew is a great professional and I would happily use his services again ”

Roy Ramrutton, Community Development Officer, Breyer Group Plc, Essex

“Just a quick note to say how much everyone enjoyed your performances on Saturday night at our party. Everyone commented on how brilliant you were and what a great addition it was to the evening. Indeed our daughter Katy wants to have another party just so we can get you along again! It just shows you can get an excellent result just from a lot of intense research on the internet! So, many thanks, best wishes”

Jeremy and Angela (and Katy!!!), Private Party, London

“Andrew has attended a couple of our charity events and anybody looking for a magician (but not just any old magician!) to ‘wow’ their guests need look no further! With our first Charity Ball Andrew attended as our close-up magician. He mesmerised our guests with his wonderful magic, he managed to captivate all our guests (350 guests!) attention moving from table to table with ease. At our second Charity Ball, Andrew had a stand alone slot in which he asked all guests to participate and without any hesitation they all jumped to their feet to be a part of his magic! He once again wowed our guests with his mind boggling magic, that left guests really asking ‘How did he do that?!!!’. Andrew selected guests to join him to participate with him in a ‘mind+picture’ trick which left everyone even more speechless!! With both events, Andrew entertained our guests which left them in awe of his fantastic, outstanding magic and illusions. We would highly recommend Andrew for any Charity, Wedding, dinner party events! Thank you for making our Charity events such a success, see you next year!”

Deborah Edwards & Amanda Foster, Ryan Casaar Charity organisers, Essex

“I was celebrating my 50th birthday with organising my own party, a black tie event, and dreading it as I so wanted a successful and memorable evening, not only for me but all my 60 guests, some of whom were travelling from overseas. I had the champagne, the dress, the food and the equipment organised, but was stuck for something different to put on, something entertaining and came across an idea one evening when talking to my husband who jokingly said that I was like a child in planning my party and that all I needed was a magician! With that said, I quickly browsed the internet for magicians in Essex and managed to whittle it down to 4. After many emails to the four I had chosen, I closed my deal on Andrew, simply because he shared the same name as my nephew and I had a deeply gutted vibe. After a few sleepless nights just prior to the event, because you just never know just how good these entertainers are, speaking to him on the telephone totally reassured me and I couldn’t wait for the big evening. I was like a child, so excited and so cunning! He turned up, so confident and so charming and a few lady guests thinking he was rather dishy! He immediately proceeded to do his arranged close-up mingling work, totally baffling me and my guests. The evening was going down a hoot and I was left to enjoy my party knowing that my guests were in good hands. He ended his evening by performing a 30 min show and we all crammed into my lounge to see him, as we were all totally amazed by this lovely man. We still talk about his appearance and still in awe of him and how he managed to “trick” us. I can’t say thank you enough to Andrew. He was just what I needed to ensure that my very special 50th birthday party went just as I had dreamed. I was totally overwhelmed the whole evening. I couldn’t have asked for a nicer and more professional gent. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone! You will not be disappointed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Andrew.”

Teresa Crawford, Essex

“Dear Andrew, on behalf of me and my partner Jack and I’m sure everybody else at the party, I want to say that we thought you were extremely amazing and that we thoroughly enjoyed your parlour show. We will definitely be recommending you to our friends and family. I cannot believe how relaxed you made us feel as some of us were a little apprehensive as we did not know what you would be doing. Your mind sections were just outstanding….. I am still gob smacked :), I don’t think anyone would be able to meet your standards. Thank you soooo much for an absolutely brilliant night”

Emily-Kate & Jack, Parlour show, Essex

“Dear Andrew, we had an amazing day. All our guests and us loved your show, it really was perfect. Thanks again.”

Heather and Mark Williams, Cabaret show at wedding in Essex

“We utilised the services of Andrew at the Chartered Institute of Housing Conference & Exhibition in Brighton during March 2009. Andrew was a positive contribution to our stand and our presence as whole at the exhibition. He is an exceptional magician but in addition developed a real rapport with stand visitors who were very impressed with the standard of his close up magic. To be honest to see people smiling and laughing on our stand was a tonic for everyone…OH!! and he wasnt averse to pulling people in off the aisles too!!…He also performed a “mind magic” parlour show at an evening event which was also very well received. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew very highly..he has a “can do” attitude and works very hard to make sure his performances are a success for everyone…”

Chris Ainsley, Events Organisor, The Breyer Group, Brighton

“Dear Andrew, a big thank you for your superb performance. As this was a surprise most people thought you were going to pull a rabbit out of a hat, or cut me in half. Instead your magic had everyones attention and we still havent worked out how you did it. Best wishes for the future. ”

Jasmine Blackie, Essex Enquirer Competition Winner, Free Parlour Show, Essex

“I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you so much for your attendance at our wedding on Friday last week at The Reid Rooms. We had a fabulous day, the best ever, and the evening’s entertainment was fantastic. Many people have commented on how much fun they had with you and we can’t wait to see the photos when they’re ready. We shall certainly recommend you to family and friends.. it was a great experience and many memories to be treasured as a result.”

Alison Bates, Wedding at the Reid Rooms, Essex

“‘Andrew is officially a terrifying man!! He came on my show and totally blew me away with his scary ability to know EXACTLY what I was thinking, what a talent. See him .. if you dare! ”

Tracy Cooper, Presenter Southend Radio 105.1, Essex

“Hi Andrew, we both just wanted to thank you for your brilliant services at our wedding on September 20th. You were amazing and acted as a brilliant ice breaker during the drinks reception. We kept hearing groups of people bursting into laughter and wanted to come over and see what was going on but we had to mingle with the other guests! We were pleased that we had decided to get you to go around the tables as it meant that everybody got to see you for at least a little bit of time and gave everyone something in common to talk about. We’d definitely recommend you to any friend of ours looking for something a bit different for their wedding or event. We have had so many compliments about your entertainment and I think you might even get one or two bookings out of it, so hopefully we might see you again soon! Thanks again ”

Elinor and Daniel Kane, Wedding at Trafalgar Tavern, Greenwich, Greater London

“Hi Andrew, we just wanted to say thankyou so much for a fantastic performance at our wedding yesterday, everyone was commenting on how good you were, the psychological tricks were just amazing!! Can’t thank you enough! ”

Amy & Ollie Burns, Wedding at Stock Brook Manor, Essex

“Dear Andrew, we both would like to thank you for a wonderful performance at my husbands 40th birthday party. Our friends and family were amazed with your talent and maybe a little spooked. You joined us for two hours and managed to see every one at the party and you are still in our conversations two weeks on. You added an extra spark to the party which will not be forgotten easily. Many Thanks ”

Lyndsay and Jim, Surprise 40th party, Hertfordshire

“Hi Andrew, just wanted to drop you a quick line to say a big thank you for your amazing tricks at our wedding, it really made the evening interlude loads more fun and a brilliant suprise for everyone. You were well worth it!”

Mr & Mrs Critten, Wedding Reception at Norwich Arts Centre, Norfolk

“Just wanted to say thanks for a great evening, guests were very impressed, spooked might describe it better, brilliant”

Susan Hart, 50th Birthday

“Jon and I just want to say how fantastic you were at our wedding in March 08. You were one of the highlights of the day. Everyone at the wedding that witnessed you was left amazed and astounded, including us! People were even asking if we’d supplied you with information about them, as they could not believe what they had experienced, we assured them that we hadn’t! We really cannot thank you enough and I would recommend anyone wanting to add that something special to their wedding, party, whatever to book you without hesitation. Kind regards Heather and Jon”

Heather Thompson, Wedding

“Dear Andrew, I just felt I had to drop you a line to say thank you so so much for making my birthday dinner party – well magical!!!!! The whole show was absolutely FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!! You totally enthralled my mum and amazed my sister and even my cynical friend had to begrudgingly admit that you were thoroughly captivating and were quite the showman! You instantly built up a great rapport with us creating an intimate, friendly and personal show which resulted in us all having an excellent time and the evening just flew by all too soon. As for how you did some of the things you did – well I think we’ll be talking about that for ages to come (are you positive you didn’t touch me that night??? and how on earth did you do that with the time and the watch with my mum and sister!!????) So, once again, thank you for a sensational evening!!!!!”

Vicky Baker, Private Party, Essex

Have a great Christmas and I hope we have the opportunity to call upon your services again.”

Gary Kelly, Anthony Hicks Ltd

“Our Members were thoroughly entertained, mesmerized and amazed by the powers of Andrew Edmonds. In an evening which consisted of pre-dinner drinks followed by a meal and cabaret, Andrew’s ability to capture his close up audience, as well as engage a wider audience, was nothing short of masterful. We are still talking about him and continue to wonder….! Thank you Andrew for giving our members a thoroughly enjoyable evening ”

Alison Gourlay, Marketing & Communications Manager, The Landsdowne Club, London

“Everyone was astounded at the close up work and he worked the tables very well, so no one felt left out. We then went through into the Library for the cabaret and the half hour went all too quickly. Not only did he do some great tricks of the mind he made us laugh and controlled things very well. He really was the talking point of the evening yesterday. It made my party into an event that we shall all remember. Some guests asked for some business cards as many would like to have him do some things for them. Many thanks all went very well indeed, I will definitely recommend both yourselves and Andrew ”

Feedback from Scott Jordan Entertainment on behalf of client, Cambridge

“Many thanks for your great performance at Julie and Jonathan’s wedding at Maidens Barn on Friday, our guests spoke very highly of your skills and were all amazed. Thank you. ”

Alex Campbell, Essex

“Just a line to thank you for coming to Rosalie and Nicho’s wedding last Sat. All the guests were mesmerised by your magic and very complimentary about your performance.”

Anne Powell-Evans, Wedding at Great Tangley Manor, Surrey

“Andrew Edmonds is a very talented magician who has worked for my event management company, Fusion Promotions, on many occasions over the last two years. He has performed his close up and cabaret sets at various high class functions and has amazed, enthralled, baffled but, more importantly, entertained all present. He is a wonderful showman who injects an infectious charm in his performances which warms his audience to him. I have received nothing but praise for his performances. His psychological mind tricks set him apart from your traditional magician and this is what initially attracted me to him as I was keen to offer something a little different to my clients. I have found Andrew to be the consummate professional; very punctual and happy to change his plans to suit the event, even at the last minute. I highly recommend Andrew’s services to anyone looking for something a bit different to add that extra dimension to their event. Rest assured that once you have seen him in action you will have no hesitation in booking him again. I only wish I could affect my client’s minds as well as he can – a real skill. ”

Anna Eden, Fusion Promotions Event Management Company

“I felt I just had to write to you and say how much everyone enjoyed your magic on Saturday evening. Your contribution to our celebrations made a great impact and everyone was saying how marvellous it was. I shall be recommending you highly to friends and acquaintances. Thank you once again”

Sue Brooker, Wedding at Easthampstead Park Conference Centre, Berkshire

“All of us here at PwC actuarial just wanted to say thanks for an amazing performance at our party last thursday evening. I know it was a smaller gathering than you’re used to but everyone was totally enthralled right to the end and you worked the crowd brilliantly. I spotted at least 2 of my bosses following you around for most of the night and we’re still scratching our heads as to how you pulled off those incredible card tricks….I have already and will continue to recommend you to everybody and I really hope we can see you again here, perhaps at one of our bigger summer events. ”

Paul R Winks, Actuarial and Insurance Management Solutions, London

“A quick note to say how much everybody at my party enjoyed your act.I know that you were the talking point for many of my friends and without exception they all enjoyed the “magic” and the banter.I would recomend you to anybody and will use you when we have a party at my new company.”

Ted Williams

“Just a line to say thank you for what you did for us on Friday. It just couldn’t have been better – everyone said how amazing you were. I sincerely hope you get some spin off business from it. If anyone asks we shall definitely give you huge recommendations. Thanks again ”

Julien Courtauld, Courtenham Warehousing & Distribution Ltd

“To anybody thinking of giving an amazing twist to their party celebrations you should definitely consider using Andrew Edmonds. I used Andrew at my wife’s 40th birthday party (held at home with 50 guests) and he was a major hit. Originally I asked Andrew to “work the party” by doing some close up work with small groups. It was evident within 10 minutes that I’d made a great choice, and this led to me arranging for Andrew to close off with a 30mins cabaret session which got everyone involved, and made our party feel very unique compared to the usual drinks, food, dancing formula. Not only did Andrew give our party an added dimension, he was very flexible in terms of the arrangements, was extremely convincing and credible, and everyone warmed to him. People are still talking about our party many weeks later!”

Phillip Hudson, Private Party, Beaconsfield

“I was given the task of organising our office christmas party for the second time and had to come up with something exciting to surpass the previous year and the expectations of the staff. Thank goodness for internet search engines! I came across various entertainers but it was Andrew’s Cabaret Show that grabbed my attention – and boy was I glad it did?! My colleagues, who are a demanding and difficult bunch to please, were amazed and impressed with the mind tricks – especially at discovering the telepathic tendencies between our two Chairmen! Andrew was the highlight of our night; fun and entertaining and, as a Travel Management Company, will be in our minds (pardon the pun) to recommend to clients for events. Just one more thing … Andrew, I am still perplexed as to how you got the ice-cream?!?! ”

Rebecca Brown – The Appointment Group

“Everybody thought you were amazing. Absolutely wonderful. You made the party so special for us and really impressed our crowd! Thank you so much, it was much more than I had hoped for. You were great. Your business cards disappeared from the table, as everyone wanted one!!”

Tony and Gaynor Vincent. Camberley

“We booked Andrew for my wife’s birthday party in February 2006 and I am pleased to confirm that we were absolutely delighted with the results. Our 120 or so guests ranged in age from 0 to 80+ and a significant majority are of Caribbean or African origin. Andrew started with ‘close-up’ work at each table and finished with a cabaret show and he astonished and amazed everyone. Upon arrival he got to work straight away and mingled with our friends and relatives without any need for introductions and he charmed and tricked them all, in some cases over and over again. For the last section of the cabaret he enlisted both of us to prove that I could read my wife’s mind (I wish!) and that we can communicate through telepathy and I still can’t work out how he did it. We have no hesitation in recommending Andrew the Magic Man to you if you want to add a special pzazz to your event or party – he is a real professional.”

Phil Robinson and Yvette Cort. London

“We both have to say that Andrew was exceptional at our wedding. He performed two cabaret performances for us and some close up magic and all the guests were extremely impressed and have been talking about it ever since. Andrew was very professional and helped to make our day that extra bit special. We would recommend him and would definitely use him again if the occasion arose. ”

Kirsty & Dimitry Milsom – Wedding at Soho House, London

“Andrew Edmonds is a remarkable magician whose close-up work will leave you astounded. More remarkable as far as I was concerned was his correctly predicting a card chosen by a listener to my radio show, in front of several witnesses in the studio: she was on the phone in Gibraltar at the time, and was astounded by Andrew’s correct prediction! So, both close up and at extremely long range, Andrew is spot on. Highly recommended.”

Simon Guettier, BFBS – Forces Radio
