With Richard, it’s not just about the magic. Your entertainment needs to have a cracking personality, to bring some energy into the room and ensure everyone is having a good time. Richard has a warmth and a great sense of humour that make his act truly memorable.
But his tricks are pretty cool too - you can see some of what he does here. Have you seen a magician pickpocketing before?! Well, have you heard of PUTpocketing? Then you need to take a look!

A magician is a great idea for a wedding. When there is a lull in the proceedings - perhaps when the bridal party is off having their photos taken - you need someone who can take care of your guests and ensure they’re all having fun. A magician is a good way to bring a little sparkle and magic into your day and dial the energy up a notch.
But likewise, he will be super subtle. When guests are eating their meal for instance, a magician knows how to work a room and approach tables at just the right moment, to keep things ticking over. But he will never intrude!
And just think - no bulky equipment, no loading in and setting up, so it’s easy to work it into your day. Richard can entertain all ages, so you can be sure all of your guests will love him!

It’s been a difficult time for performers thanks to Covid, but Richard has been taking part in some virtual magic shows, and helping to keep us all entertained whilst we’ve been at home! And you may be able to catch him at some Open Days and Wedding Fayres too (virtual or otherwise!) - Richard is a regular at many great local venues and often makes the “preferred supplier” list. That’s how good he is!
Richard is based in Gloucester, but travels regularly around the Cotswolds, South West, London and further beyond too. You can see more on his website, Youtube, Facebook and Instagram.
