"When I first spoke to you less than a week before the event, it was a real pleasure discussing with you what the various options might be for the evening. The resulting package went down a treat. All our guests are still talking about the amazing close-up table magic and the brilliant illusion show. Additionally, from my point of view, I really appreciated the professional way that you adapted to the location, and the audience, without fuss."

                   ABSOLUTELY AMAZING !!
"I booked Slightly Unusual for a small corporate event last night and was really impressed. The tricks and illusions was of a very high standard and their humour and comedy throughout their performance had everyone in stitches.
A great mix of close magic and a stage act with plenty of audience participation.
I would not hesitate in re booking them and would recommend them to anyone looking for a great magic act with a twist.
Cheers guys!"

              My Magical 50th Birthday
Very proud to recommend Craig and the Team at Slightly Unusual. I organised my 50th Birthday with guests aged 9 to 90. The Magic was unbelievable! I have received calls, emails and letters from guests who loved the entertainment. They performed a little mingling magic as the guests arrived and then circulated the tables during dinner leaving each table astonished and entertained in equal measure. They followed dinner with an amazing cabaret. The invited many guests up to help perform in a range of wonderful illusions. The magic is accompanied by fabulous humour that tickled everyone. I was incredibly proud of Craig and his team. He was wonderful to deal with and very professional throughout the organisation of the party.

We booked Slightly Unusual for a conference and dinner event we held for our clients. They were great at making sure everyone experienced their fantastic magic. We received great feedback from our clients and we will be sure to use them again for any future events.

We booked Slightly Unusual last minute and are so glad that we did. We knew we’d probably like it and hoped everyone else would too. It was even better that we imagined. Everyone has been saying how much they enjoyed it, especially the trick with the coins! No clue how it’s possible! The guys were really nice and friendly and just organised themselves, I didn’t need to worry about them. We’ll definitely book again, it was so much fun.

              Alex was brilliant thankyou.

Alex entertained everyone brilliantly at our work Christmas night out. The table top magic was fantastic and the show was very good. He was funny and we all had fun. We are still wondering how he did so many of his fabulous tricks. Will definitely book him again. He was much more reasonable compared to other magicians from the magic circle and I think he was as good as, if not better!

Nem from slightly unusual kept us transfixed and amused. Very professional, friendly and entertaining. The only thing he couldn't magic from behind an ear was a pint of beer! Highly recommended. Paul Harvey.

       “I immediately thought of Slightly Unusual" 
They provided me with a great price for close-up magic during pre-drinks, full illusion show after dinner and two hours of teambuilding on day 2. We booked them without hesitation! My client and all the delegates were all blown away by the whole event. They are all still talking about and trying to work out some of the illusions even now 2 weeks later. We laughed so much my cheeks ached, it couldn't of been better. Slightly Unusual work tirelessly to ensure that everyone enjoys their events. They are fun, imaginative and a great way to combine business and fun. I would recommend Slightly Unusual with confidence to any of my clients and would have no hesitation in advising anyone else to do the same. Thankyou Slightly Unusual you have helped enhance my reputation with one of my best and biggest clients and i look forward to working with you again."

                     Great magic !!
I booked Slightly Unusual to perform some close up magic at a corporate event which I had organised. The venue was not ideal (very warm and inadequate lighting, karaoke machine out of order) however the magicians really brought the atmosphere to life and allayed our concerns regarding the less-than-ideal venue. The quality of magic was brilliant, but also the magicians were really engaging and interactive. We received really positive feedback from attendees who mentioned how impressed they were by the magicians. We paid slightly more than we would ordinarily for entertainment, but we got what we paid for and then some.
James E

Massive thanks to Slightly Unusual for putting on a wonderful performance enjoyed by all my guests. Great job and will definitely look to re-book at some point.

John R

Even as a (very) late booking, they couldn't have been easier to deal with, And the entertainer arrived exactly as scheduled, and did exactly as planned. Which just makes the arranging of these type of events so much less stressful! Very light hearted show, went down well with the audience, and the close up magic still has people asking - how did he do that.

                      Speechless ?!

We booked slightly unusual as part of our entertainment at our awards presentation. Firstly the communication was brilliant, the guys over the phone went through all the details and went over any concerns I had. On the night we had the pleasure of Steph who did close up magic. She arrived promptly and from the word get go he was entertaining our guests. There were no words to describe it. It was truly amazing! Not only did he wow us with his sleight of hand he also incorporated comedy into the way he performed his magic, which made the night fantastic. I would highly recommend. Simply brilliant.

 Entertainment for Daughter's wedding reception

We booked Slightly Unusual as a surprise for my daughter's wedding to keep our guests entertained as things were warming up and he certainly did that! They preformed some amazing magic. We had lots of comments saying how good he was so I'm sure he will receive another booking from one of our guests. Thank you so much, it was mind blowing.
