Dean Metcalfe: Close Up Magician For Performances Across the UK

Dean Metcalfe started perfecting his close up magician act over 30 years ago, initially just for friends and family. But over the years, he got so good at it that he turned professional and, to this day, remains one of the most sought-after close-up magicians in the UK.

Dean is available for private events such as weddings, corporate entertainment and sporting events.

Weaving a Spell of Visual Disbelief

Dean regularly receives requests to perform his amazing close up magic at various private events for adult and family audiences. And after 3 decades of perfecting his magic, there is no one better. Moreover, because Dean is so innovative, his performances are as fresh today as they were 30-odd years ago.

At your own event, you will clearly want your guests to be entertained, enthralled and enthused. By hiring Dean as the close-up magician, you will be guaranteed all these things and more!

What just happened?

Coins glimmer and fade, flames and cigarettes disappear, everyday objects emerge from nowhere and slip away unseen. And your guests will be gasping and shaking their heads in disbelief.

Moreover, they’ll be left wondering for weeks and months afterwards how on earth Dean managed to do all those brilliant tricks right before their very eyes.

And here’s another thing. Dean has been the Magician’s choice to perform for his peers many times. And if magicians are impressed, just think how stunned your guests will be!

Suitable Venues

Dean’s close-up magic act is ideal for venues such as golf clubs, racecourse grounds, country houses and even offices. Prestigious venues (e.g. Banking Hall London) suit Dean’s style perfectly but as long as there’s sufficient room, that’ll do nicely. By all means give Dean a ring and he’ll be happy to advise you on the most appropriate format for your event.

Performance Times

1 hour and 30 minutes for audience of 80+ or 2 hours for audience of 120+.
