Magician Newark – Wedding magician and table magician for hire

Local Newark magician and psychological illusionist Duncan William specialises in close up magic and as a result, is one of Newark’s most popular wedding magicians. Duncan lives just down the A46 in Nottingham and his act is fast becoming one of the most sought after magicians in Newark.

His act is fresh, original and exciting and is part of the new wave of ‘young and stylish’ magicians who are transforming the classic look of magic. Gone are the days of fancy card flourishes and tiresome patter, Duncan’s act brings modern TV magic to your eyes which is refreshingly exciting and fun.

Whether it is changing £5 into £20, plucking thoughts out of your mind or making cards vanish from between your hands, Duncan’s close up magic makes a modern and exciting addition to a party or wedding.

Booking Duncan as a Newark magician stimulates the conversation between guests, leaves them spellbound and laughing in amazement at something both unique, and original. Be it at a hen or stag party, before the evening entertainment at a wedding or mingling between guests on a sun drenched lawn whilst they sip champagne, Duncan can tailor his act to meet your requirements.

Newark is a beautiful medieval market town and is an easy commute from Nottingham, making it a perfect retreat for couples wanting to marry outside the busy hustle and bustle of Nottingham. With the Grade1 listed building of The Church of St Mary Magdalene, posing as a stunning venue to wed and flanked by Newark Castle hugging the banks of the river Trent, Newark makes a beautiful location for many wedding parties.

Kelham Hall is perhaps the most well-known wedding venue, but there are many more where Duncan has plied his trade over the years. These include, Stubton Hall, Norwood Park Country House, Allington Manor and Doddington Hall.

But Duncan is not just a Newark wedding magician. Nor is his act is not just restricted to close up and table magic. It extends to cabaret and stage performances. Again his act attempts to dispel the myth of the magician of yesteryear with their sleeves full of doves and pockets full of fake bouquets of flowers. His act, much like his table magic is contemporary and original and involves magic, ‘mind-reading’, comedy and smatterings of human ventriloquism, escapology and other feats of wonder.

“I just want to say a big thank you to you for attending our work’s Christmas party. We have had a tough year, but this was a real treat for the guys and you made it really special! Thank you so much. When I first told everyone I had booked a magician – there was a groan. After you left – some of them asked when you were coming back. Thank you so much!! Brilliant!”
