What you'll do

Prepare to be inspired and spellbound as we go on an epic 90 minute journey through my magical world.

Join me in the Secrets of Magic Zoom Classroom where you will take part in a mind-blowing magic show with everyday objects such as cards, coins & the gold-dust of our times - a roll of toilet paper!

I'll share with you heartfelt & inspiring stories of truly magical moments that have happened while entertaining children in hospital, which helped me discover what the true secret of magic really is.

The show section dramatically ends with an attempt to break one of my Guinness World Records live for you on camera! (Goes without saying it won't be the skydive record I'm afraid)

Then it's your turn to give it a go!

I'll share with you some of the tricks you've just witnessed me perform. But this experience won't just be about learning tricks, we'll also explore the psychology that turns a trick into a piece of magic.

For families, the recommended age of this experience is 5+ however private bookings get a custom service, allowing me to adapt to your child's age range/needs.

This experience is great for team-building and if you book as a private group, I can provide a surprise, bespoke piece of magic in the show. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message!

Hi, my name is Martin and I've been performing magic since the age of 12.

Over the past few years, I've broken several Guinness World Records in magic to raise money for Spread a Smile, who provide entertainment for children in hospital.

I hold the Guinness Book of World Record titles for:
Most Magic Tricks on a Skydive
Most Magic Tricks in a Wind Tunnel
Most Magic Tricks Blindfolded in 1 Minute
Most Playing Cards Identified in 1 Minute
Most Magic Underwater in 3 minutes.

Each record has been crazy ride, particularly the water record which was achieved for Guinness World Records day 2020.

My magic is family friendly and guaranteed to be an experience you'll remember forever!

Still unsure? Feel free to read the guest reviews detailing how much they enjoyed it!

Three generations of family did a private show with Martin and he was terrific. He personalized the show to the audience -- and it's great for kids-at-heart of all ages -- was highly engaging and is an exceptionally talented magician! You will thoroughly enjoy meeting Martin -- and seeing, participating in and even learning how to do great magic tricks!

We did our post Holiday company party with Martin and it was a great success! Martin is incredibly friendly and engaging. The show was very impressive and kept the whole group (almost 20 of us) involved. Just a great experience beginning to end that I would recommend for any group looking to get together and just have fun.

Great team event to virtually bring us together, have fun, laugh and learn a few tricks! I recommend Martin as a great event to put aside all of the things going on in the world and just have fun!

This was a PERFECT socially-distant family birthday party. We all had a lot of fun and the customization for my mom’s birthday was a special surprise! Martin got everyone involved from age 8 to 71, and the 90 minutes goes by really quickly with a great mix of entertainment and interaction. The world record aspect is so unique! Definitely recommend for family parties - we made a great memory!

Martin gave our 9-year old a magical online birthday party with his best friends. Martin's talent, energy, and constant smiles made the event super fun and memorable for all. A clear pro, highly recommended!
