From close-up and trade-show performances to large stage events, I perform magic and ‘mind-reading’ effects to many different audiences. Bringing humour, storytelling, and a real sense of magic to each performance I do, I have a performance to suit many types of event.
From close-up performances, to stage shows, cabaret performances and outdoor shows, I enjoy bringing magic to any event! With a range of magic available, a lot of what I do leans towards a 'mentalism', or 'mind-reading', style of magic, as I use observation, psychology and magic (among other techniques) to give you an experience to make you think about your thoughts - as well as being entertained! I believe that when you see a magician you want to be intrigued and enchanted, rather than just seeing a string of wonderful effects, and I deliver both in my shows of all sizes. I have 'sta
... nd up' style performances, where I can turn up and perform with nothing but a small case. At the opposite end of things, I have an old ice-cream tricycle converted into the 'Magical Trike' (which has even been prepared with Covid safety in mind!).
Greg is a magician and ‘mind-reader’, as well as a juggler and escapologist, who has been performing as a solo performer since 2007, in shows featuring comedy juggling, unicycling, escapology, physical and spoken comedy, and magic all combined into Greg’s own unique style of performance. He has performed in a range of locations and styles, from complete evening stage performances of up to 90 minutes, to cabaret slots in variety evenings, as well as shorter indoor and outdoor performances at a large range of events and venues. With his standard act he is suitable for performances anywhere
... and is highly flexible in working within a theme where necessary – but he also has a large number or history-based performances with his ‘Condensed Histories’ line of shows. Previous venues have included Sudeley Castle, Blenheim Palace. National Museum of Wales, Lyceum Theatre Crewe (as part of Crewe Steampunk Festival), Salisbury Museum, Forge Mill Needle Museum, the Garrison Theatre at Hurst Castle, the Isle of Wight Steam Railway and many others. He also worked with ‘Action Theatre in English’ in Italy for nine years touring schools and theatres in Italy performing shows designed to improve English speaking skills, as well as writing and directing for the company.

Greg was exceptional. He engaged adults and children in a friendly manner and the tricks were truly amazing. His booking system and attendance all went very smoothly and he is very good value given how far he had to travel to attend our fzz as milt gathering.

Greg was lovely and everyone really enjoyed his performance. He even came up with an improvised poem in response to one read at the party - very talented.

Greg Chapman has performed for the last two years running at Papplewick Pumping Station's Steampunk event as our EmCee. His professionalism and relaxed nature is second to none and he keeps everything running to time as well as marvellous interaction with the public. We have had no hesitation in booking Greg for the third year running. Greg's magical tricks are also superb and enthral both adult and child alike. Your event is in safe hands with Greg and we can't recommend him enough.

Greg was super helpful and professional from start to finish. We booked him for a 60th birthday party, with people aged 4-70, he was amazing. Everyone loved him. Great with the children but very mature tricks as well. Would 100% recommend for any occasion. Thank you so much Greg!

Greg made our memorable family celebration on the IOW even more memorable. For nearly an hour and a half Greg kept our family, from 2-75 years, spellbound. We can all highly recommend Greg who is capable of professionally entertaining any age group.
