VIP Close Up Magic Parlour Show

Option 3: The Parlour Show

The Parlour Show retains the intimate feel of close up magic but is instead performed in a private room with the audience seated. This VIP atmosphere makes it ideal as a treat for special guests, important clients or exceptional staff members. Your guests get a front-row seat to see the incredible magic that won David the title of ‘Magic Circle Close Up Magician of the Year’ in London as well as the amazing metal bending routines that he used on cutlery at a private event for Her Majesty The Queen at Buckingham Palace.

David’s Parlour Show best suits audiences of less than 30 people. It is ideal for meeting days, small corporate gatherings or private parties as it requires no stage and less space and set up time than a cabaret. The show lasts approximately 60 minutes.

"I'm just thoroughly amazed and I think he's fantastic!"
