Reviews & Testimonials

'We booked a magician to help attract customers to our stand at a trade show. When Bryan Gunton showed up, we realised immediately that were getting far more than a magician. Bryan took an instant interest in our product range, our targets for the show, our aspirations in terms of customer care and results. Bryan then set about attracting customers with his wonderful brand of close up magic. He kept an eye on progress on the stand and filtered customers for us. He kept customers entertained for as long as was necessary until one of us became available, then introduced the customers to us. They were invariably in a good mood and very receptive when they reached us. I estimate that our customer flow through our display stand was increased by at least 50% by having Bryan's help. I would have no hesitation in using Bryan's services again or in recommending Bryan to others.' - Marketing Director, Envirotec Bathing

'I have seen Bryan dazzle individuals and captivate whole tables with his magic. Combined with his cheekiness he is an excellent ice breaker and entertainer for any kind of event - from birthday parties and weddings to large corporate events. Watch him like a hawk, but I swear, you'll still not be able to work out how he does it! Truly awesome!' - Marina Lois

'When you are entertaining guests such as Jimmy Tarbuck, Heston Blumenthal and Michel Roux amongst others you only want the best. For the fourth year running we have invited Bryan Gunton to entertain the rich and famous which he has done admirably and with great style. Nothing is too much trouble, he entertains without being obtrusive but you always know where he is due to laughs and gasps at the table he is entertaining.' - Jennifer Shah, Wiltshire

'Thank you very much for doing the most fantastic job at the Institute of Financial Planning Annual Conference last week. The delegates were delighted and were still talking about you the next day. You have an exceptional and very impressive talent and a fantastic personality. Therefore, it was such a pleasure to have you with us on our stand. You exceeded all of our expectations I have no hesitation in recommending your services for future events.' - Marketing Manager (Pictet)

'Bryan provided a highlight of our recent event and brought a smile to the faces of our guests. He ensured there was positive energy ahead of the conference and I hope to work with him in future.' - Natwest

'We booked Bryan to perform at our staff service awards and he kept everyone very entertained! His approach going to tables and individuals was perfect as well as setting up a table later in the evening alongside the casino. His tricks were amazing and he has left a few people believing in magic! We would definitely book him again.' - Sony

'Having just been on the receiving end of Bryan's amazing skills I recommend him without hesitation. You will not spot how he does it, believe me! He works at very close quarters, so could entertain any audience size in a variety of settings. Last night, for example, he entertained each table individually at a Charity Ball. This magician is relaxed and friendly with an engaging sense of humour. Excellent.' - Tony Willicombe

'We had a fantastic day and many of our guests have commented on the close up magic that you performed on the day, it really went down a treat! It has given other people the idea for their weddings too.' - Richard & Catherine Richard, The Gower Golf Club

'The close up magic you did for our wedding was superb, we've received many comments and compliments about it, so glad we decided to book you, it's true the additional extras that we added to our day such as yourself really, really made a difference.' - Wendy Jones, The Vale Hotel
