Everyone loved what he did. They were still talking about him the next day.

Tracy Robinson, Cheshire

Very impressive, very professional and did exactly what we asked of him.

“We booked Jonathan for our Wedding in November and had him perform while we were having our photos after the Ceremony. He was brilliant and his mix of magic and engaging humour had everyone entertained. We were worried people would be bored in the time between Ceremony and Reception. But, Jonathan helped make it into one of the most talked about moments of the day.” G. Densham, Blackpool

Jonathan is a specialist close up magician. Jonathan makes his living entertaining adults with close up magic at weddings, corporate events, private house parties, hotels, bars and restaurants... anywhere where people are looking to have some fun basically. To Jonathan, that's what magic is all about: having fun.

If you read Jonathan's testimonials, you'll see that most of his past clients have mentioned, not only the great magic, but being ENTERTAINED. Jonathan gets people laughing. This is something that he prides himself on; he is not just someone who has learned a few tricks - Jonathan genuinely loves interacting with people and getting them involved with the show, without embarrassing or belittling anyone.

Jonathan just loves sharing magic with people and making them laugh! So, if you're looking for someone to ENTERTAIN your guests, as well as performing fantastic tricks, give us a call. Jonathan's goal is to use magic and humour to make your event the best it can possibly be!

“Jonathan is one of the best magicians I have ever seen in action. He was excellent with our guests and really went a long way to amaze and entertain them. I was particularly impressed by how funny he is and not only are you getting a magician for your money you are getting someone that is sure to make you laugh out loud. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jonathan to anyone who is considering a close up magician. He would be perfect for practically any special occasion: Weddings, Corporate, Parties etc. - he really brings a group of people together and elevates the mood of the event.” (J. Evernden, Event Coordinator)

Performance Schedule

Jonathan can be booked to perform close up magic for 1 hour, 2 hours or 3 hours, depending on the number of guests. In his experience, one hour per 50 guests is a good estimate for walkaround magic, though he is happy to arrange longer or shorter sets if you'd prefer.

Jon was great and threw himself into joining in with everyone and astounding them with magic. He even gave himself a pirate name just because everyone else had one. :)

Jonathan could not have provided a more professional and engaging performance. Mingling with the crowd throughout the two hour period, the feedback from people was that Jonathan was extremely polite, built great rapport with the guests, and delivered some amazing card tricks. Having had a discussion with Jonathan both before and after the event, he was a pleasure to have and was exactly what we were looking for. Thanks again Jonathan! We will definitely be keeping you in mind for future events.

From the initial enquiry to the night of the event the service received by both Warble Staff and Jonathan was great, he was happily interacting with our guests; keeping them entertained and amazed. We would be more than happy to recommend and use Warble and Jonathan again. I can't praise them enough, thanks Emily and Jonathan for a great night!

My husband and I celebrated 30 years married on 11 May 2014. To mark the occasion we held a small afternoon soiree with family and close friends. To help with the celebrations we secured the services of Jonathan the Magician. We first met Jonathan on the day of the soiree, just before our guests arrived, and I have to say Jonathan came across as a lovely man and appeared keen to make sure the event went off well and take some of the pressure off me and my husband. True to his word as soon as guests arrived, and were settled, he began to mix and mingle. Unfortunately, neither my husband nor I got to see Jonathan perform as we were busy mingling with the guests. However, the laughter and chuckles we heard around the room from our guests being entertained by Jonathan indicated to us that Jonathan was being well received and a very good choice. This was further confirmed when we spoke to our guests who ranged from 7 years to 80 years old, some of whom can be harsh critics, and everyone spoke very highly of Jonathan and how marvelous his act was. They advised they were entertained, they shared a laugh and were very impressed with Jonathan. Should we ever hold a soiree again I will not hesitate to once again secure the services of Jonathan. Highly recommended.

Thank you so much to Jonathan for providing a brilliant element at our Daughters 21st party. Abigail's 21st was themed as a very merry unbirthday party taking prompts from Alice in Wonderland so Jonathon was perfect with the guests . He was friendly and funny yet made lots of people gasp with surprise at his talent surrounded by lots of oversized card props etc. Many friends and family of all ages including school, and university friends have already responded to say thank you and passed on messages to include how much they enjoyed the entertainment. It's a brilliant way of getting the guests to mix and certainly helped us with such a varied group. Thank you to everyone at Warble we have all ready passed on your details.

    Can you work for children?
    Though I'm not a kids magician, I do have a few effects that are able to be appreciated by children. If you're looking for a children's magician however, I am not the right magician for you. There are plenty more able than me on this site that will give your children a fantastic time! By the way, all of my magic, and humour, is child friendly, so you don't need to be worried that they might learn some new words!

    Do you need a particular sized space to work?
    No. I have designed my act to be as flexible and versatile as possible. I carry of my my props on me and can work inside or out. Most of my effects have been designed to work in spectators hands, rather than on the table, making them far more interactive and powerful. By creating my effects this way, I can offer you a magic show that is truly adaptable to your event, so you can have peace of mind knowing that I can handle any last minute changes.

    What kind of events can magic be used for?
    Any kind of event that has lots of people wanting a fun time! Magic can be a great "filler" for those moments in an event where there is not much going on: as people arrive at the reception, between courses of the meal, or between the meal and the evening's presentations at an awards ceremony for example. Magic is a fantastic way to help build - or keep - a happy atmosphere!

    I'm getting married and someone recommended hiring a magician. When would be a good time to book you for?
    In my experience, there are four times in your wedding day when a magician can be useful:

    • As the guests arrive: I could perform close up magic for guests as a way of breaking the ice and introducing people. I can help get groups of guests together and get them laughing, so you're not worried about your Aunt Hilda not knowing anyone, being sat in a corner on her own, or anything like that.
    • During the photos: having the photo's taken is a fantastic time for the bride and groom, but can often leave a gap for the guests who have nothing to do. I can provide entertaining close up magic to keep everybody happy and allow you to spend as long as you want getting that perfect picture, without worrying about rushing back!
    • During courses of the wedding breakfast:to be honest, this isn't my preferred option of performing, as I know a lot of people enjoy having a good chat during the meal. However, if you'd like me to perform, I can do table magic between courses of the meal, keeping up a great atmosphere for your day.
    • After the meal and before the evening disco:most couples make a gap between the meal and the disco and, after a long day, this can be a time when the energy of the guests can dip. By having me perform magic, I can keep everybody entertained while they wait for you to get up for the first dance...
