What type of magic are you looking for?
Miracles in miniature performed right before your eyes by a first class magician.
Cool and contemporary, classic or comic this is entertainment you can have your way. Amazing sleight of hand, jaw dropping mentalism and mind reading and hilarious comedy performed to people in small groups.
It's the perfect ice-breaker, a superb conversation starter and an unbeatable attraction for restaurants and hotels. If you want to gather a crowd John can be big and brash, if you need him to be unobtrusive he's discretion personified. In short it is the perfect individual show tailored to each group's needs.
John's close up magic has entertained Princes, pop stars and TV viewers all over the UK and beyond. This most versatile of entertainment allows John to change approach as the situation demands, from the formal and intimate Earl's birthday celebration to the ultra cool psychological control or street magic popularised recently on TV. Whatever the occasion, be it a wedding, company party or fund raising event John is the perfect entertainer and will provide just the right blend of humour and mystery.
We would like to thank you for making a special evening for us even more special. The entertainment you provided was absolutely fantastic and will be talked about by all our guests for years to come.

Mary Gillingham - Sarah's Stars, Warrington
Please note: doesn't need a parlour! The name stems from when Victorian gentlemen would put on talks and presentations in the drawing room. In practice it is a show for up to around 30 people, pitched between close up and stage magic. John combines the intimacy, adaptability and intricacy of table magic with the flow and communal experience of a stage show. Up to 45 minutes of magic and comedy, your guests won't have seen anything like it. Your event will be the talk of the town!Back to top

For comedy clubs, student nights, parties and events. Topical comedy, acute observation, eye popping mag... what's not to like? John has shared bills with comedians as diverse as Ken Dodd, Tom O'Connor Paul O'Grady and Russell Brand, so he's ready for any audience.

What came first, the comedy or the magic? Who cares! John Harding is brilliant. The most versatile performer and best value for money our union has booked.

If you want your awards ceremony, presentation evening, charity night or even wedding to be one to remember then John is your man. He has much experience as a Master Of Ceremonies, Host and Compere, keeping things light, funny and running smoothly. Always ready with a quip or some magic to cover delays and down time your event will go like a dream. There is a real skill involved in running an event, entertaining the audience and keeping things appearing effortless and John has it in spades. Is he a host that does tricks? A comedian that does magic? A magician who's funny? It won't matter to your guests, they'll just have a great time.Back to top
