When is the best time for magic?
Magic doesn't come across well if you can't hear the magician so it's good to avoid times when there is very loud music. Also, if all guests are eating a meal, magic can feel like an unwelcome distraction. Some good opportunties are when there is a break in proceedings, a long wait between courses, before/after a meal or during a drinks reception. Dave is very flexible when it comes to making the most of an event and if you are unsure, he is always happy to offer advice.
What ages range does Dave perform for?
Family or adult events.
How far will he travel?
Currently, Dave mainly performs around Scotland but is available to travel around the UK if an event calls for it. Enquire to find out more.
Does he perform stand-up/cabaret style magic too?
While he does turn his hand to cabaret magic very occasionally, close-up magic is Dave's speciality.
