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!

We had such a great hour and a half with Martin, laughed a lot, had loads of fun, and we found ourselves gobsmacked on many occasions. Joan Cusack?!? For real?? 😹

So much fun! We had the best time getting magical with Martin for my husband’s birthday celebration. He got everyone involved and it was so interesting hearing about his world. We loved the magic and to also learn how to do some of the tricks was brilliant. It added an edge to the experience and made it even more memorable. Thank you Martin!

I booked this experience for a friends birthday. Martin is a fantastic host and we all really enjoyed the show. The only downside for me was the internet connection which was very poor ( on my side) hence 4 stars ⭐️ instead of 5 but overall great experience

I attended this experience as part of a team event for work. Martin was great - he made sure everyone participated and kept everyone engaged. The 90 minutes flew by! Highly recommended for all ages.

It was beautiful! I was laughing the entire time! He did provide some explanation of a few tricks, but it wasn’t so much that the surprise magic was completely gone. Thank you for your hard work!
