Close Up Magic is basically magic that happens close up right in front of your eyes and in many cases in your own hands. Close Up Magic is perfect for banquets, weddings, gala dinners, summer balls and any other type of event where people are mixing and mingling. There are two really popular types of close up magic.
This is magic that is performed from table to table and as such is perfect for events such as wedding breakfasts, gala dinners, summer balls etc. Craig will perform a mini cabaret show at each table entertaining your guests in between courses. This is a great co ... nversation starter and gives the entire table something to talk about throughout any event.
This type of magic is perfect for champagne receptions, product launches, pre dinner drinks etc. Basically the magician will mix and mingle between your guests moving from group to group entertaining everyone at the event.
