Magic of Iain Shaw - Close-Up / Weddings / Cabaret / Children's Entertainer / Corporate - Comedy Cabaret Magician - Sheffield, Yorkshire and the Humber Event Location: Harrogate Event Type: Birthday Party 4th September 2021
Iain did a 90 minute performance for my son and daughter’s birthday. It was brilliant - and kept a tough crowd of children aged 3-10 thoroughly entertained throughout. Even the bigger children were captivated by tricks for the little ones. For the final 30 minutes Iain did some close-up magic for the older children and grown-ups. It was truly amazing. He had a crowd gathered round him the whole time - and triggered plenty of gasps, shrieks and squeals of delight from parents and children

We can highly recommend Iain. Last minute booking to keep the kids entertained at my little boys christening. Very thankful how he squeezed us in for 2 hours at such short notice. Kept both children and adults entertained for the whole 2 hours. Will definitely be in touch for the future, we had guests comment on how good he was. Thanks again Iain. See you soon. ☺️
