Magician North East


You entertained everyone at my party absolutely brilliantly! People are still talking about how amazing you were with all your tricks and they also loved your humour. I personally had a super time thanks to you and the trick where you threw my signed playing card up to a window astounded us all. The card stayed there for some days – I was quite sorry when it finally came down!

I have certainly wholeheartedly recommended you to other people and I look forward to booking you again in the future.

Many thanks indeed,

Why book magician North East, Graeme Shaw?

  • Because he has won more magic awards than any other North East magician.
  • Performs at more events than most other North East magicians.
  • Has very reasonable rates.
  • Magician North East is actually based in the North East! Unlike some others that you may come across, meaning they will be more expensive!

Graeme s fast pace and visual magic style make him one of the best table magicians in the North East. Graeme will mix with your guests during the drinks reception or will perform at each table giving each table a unique experience and even returns most watches!


When`s a good time to have a close up magician North East at my event and what will the benefit be?

If your looking at this page you will probably already know why having a magician at your event will be of benefit! Maybe you have seen Graeme or another magician at another function and realized what an impact it can make.

The other bonus is the fact that a good close up magician can adapt to almost any situation and can be very versatile. For example your guests are standing in a different area to where you thought they would during your drinks reception. For something like a piano player, harpist or singer this may be a problem, but a magician can simply go where ever they are needed and at any time.

Maybe your having a garden party or family get together and just want something “different” that doesn’t take up too much room. The magician can really come at any point during your event, but try to avoid it being too late as some guests may have headed home or maybe some younger ones would love to see a magician. Most GOOD close up magicians can also cater for younger audiences at events and can do some close up type magic for them too, maybe even some balloons. Coming along at the start of the night does work well and don’t worry about some of your guests maybe not being there right from the off, most magicians work 1 – 2 hrs so they will probably still get to see them even if they come along later on!

  • Try to avoid having a magician at the same time as your disco, singer or band if you can help it. Maybe your having a private birthday party in privately booked room, pretty much any time would work for a close up magician but normally towards the beginning of the night or during the buffet works well. A GOOD close up magician can adapt his magic to the situation but loud music towards the end of the night may make it more difficult for your guests to engage and hear the magician.
  • A magician that wanders around your guests at the start of the evening, maybe during a drinks reception is an excellent “ice breaker” It brings people who don’t already know each other together, and gets them chatting straight away. Even if they do know each other it starts the conversation on a positive note from the off.
  • For a larger event – Once your guests are seated, is another popular time for a magician to perform. Often known as “table hopping” or “table magic“. Don`t worry this doesn’t involve Graeme jumping from table to table! But means that the magician will move around the tables doing his performance for the guests sat at each table. Magicians normally do this in between courses and NOT when the guests are actually eating or when awards or welcome speeches are taking place. At larger events this works well as the tables are usually all at a slightly different stage of the meal throughout, i.e. when the last table is receiving there mains, the first table are now finishing.
What ever your needs or even if you just want some advise, don’t hesitate to contact magician North East Graeme Shaw for information and/or advise.

Hi Graeme

Hi Graeme,

Just a note to say thank you for your ‘magic’ on Saturday evening. We all thought it was fantastic.

I had numerous texts saying what a great way to start a party!

The party continued to flow until the small hours of Sunday and for me it was a night to remember.
