Since the style of close up magic Stephen performs is so versatile, it can be tailored to suit any function. Here are some of the most popular ways a close up magician works at an event:
Walk Around Magic - Often titled mix and mingle magic at events where guests are standing, such as cocktail parties and wedding receptions. In these situations Stephen can walk to various groups of people and perform close up magic whilst standing.
Table Magic - Stephen is able to visit seated groups of people and perform for them at a table. This is often ideal at dinner parties where the close up magician can perform in between courses. At several events, smaller and more intimate in nature, a spare seat has been left at each table to allow Stephen to join them before as well as in between courses to perform powerful close up magic.
Meet and Greet - Similar in style to walk around magic, Stephen has often been employed to meet and greet guests with magic. This is an excellent ice breaker! In situations where guests are unlikely to know each other Stephen is able to use close up magic as tool to bring people together and get them talking.
