Iain, Well you went down a storm. Yesterday, we asked what was the best bit of the three days. The Magician, The Magician, The Magician was all we could hear. You certainly helped us make some great family memories. Well done and thank you.

We saw Iain at his show in Bakewell Derbyshire. He had the audience of all ages mesmerized with his magic. He is an excellent Magician and Comedian. We would thoroughly recommend everyone to see his show you will not be disapointed. It was non stop entertainment from start to finish. Thank you Iain for one of the best evenings entertainment we have had. Look forward to another show soon.
