Virtual Magic

24th April 2020

Live, interactive magic from the comfort of your own home!

Zoom Magic – Connect with family and friends during lockdown.

Unfortunately due to the recent Coronavirus outbreak, all public gatherings and social events have been put on hold, but that doesn’t mean to say that we can’t still have fun! It really is amazing to see how businesses, families and friends are coping with the practicalities of a national lockdown; from virtual weekly family quizzes to online video conferencing, the nation is staying strong.

Utilising the increasingly popular Zoom, I’ve created a super interactive, fun and personable online magic show designed to bring people closer together during this challenging time. So you can’t physically pick a card, but you can think of one and guess what, I will guess your card!

What is Skype & Zoom Magic?

Exactly what it says! It’s online interactive magic that everyone, no matter their location can enjoy.

How does it work?

Upon booking and payment, I will send you all the details you’ll need to join me online for either your 25 or 40 minutes zoom magic show. Once you’ve received the details, forward the meeting link to everyone you want to join the show.

You will need to download Zoom onto your laptop, tablet or mobile device. The show can be watched on any of these devices, but it’s recommended that you join on your largest screen.

Participants are also asked to bring with them a packet of cards, a pen and 4 identical sheets of paper.

What magic do you perform?

The show is fully interactive and takes the very best of my multi-award winning close-up magic into the virtual world. With the show based around interactivity and YOU the audience, the magic very much happens in your hands. Here’s just a small snapshot as to the type of magic I’ll perform during the show:

  • It will blow your mind when I can guess your dream holiday destination, the combination of 3 randomly rolled dice or a freely chosen playing card!
  • The best virtual card trick ever? With both yours and my playing cards thoroughly mixed, you make all the rules and yet somehow influence a miracle…not only in my hands but also in yours! A trick that will mess with your brain for weeks!
  • Oh and a killer finale that’s worth the price of the entire show…marvel as a freely thought-of word appears inside of a sealed envelope that’s been in full view the entire time!

Unlike YouTube clips, my online magic shows are fully interactive and I actively encourage participation from all attendees. I can even personalise the magic to suit your company and/or event.

How many people is it for?

This is entirely up to you. Zoom allows for big numbers, up to 100 people, however to allow for a good level of audience participation I suggests a minimum of 8 people and a maximum of 50. After all, witnessing your friend’s, family’s or colleagues’ reactions to the magic is part of the fun!

How long does the show last?

Shows can run for 25 or 40 minutes, depending on the nature of your event. Longer shows can be put together upon request.

Who is the show suitable for?

The show is ‘family friendly’ but is largely suited for adults, teenagers and children from ages 8 upwards.

Can the show be tailored?

For an additional fee, I can tailor the show to suit the occasion / event. Having the entertainment made bespoke and unique to the occasion adds that extra special dimension to the event and guarantees to be a talking point for weeks to come!

How much does it cost?

Cost will vary depending on the event, number of screens watching and whether there are any bespoke aspects to the show. Please get in touch for further details and pricing.
