What others have said about my MAGIC PHILIP parties
“Thanks so much for your entertainment. We loved it and the children had a great time. I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family and we will be in touch in future years 😊” Katie Warburton Culcheth Sports Club (September 2021)
“From the moment we met Magic Philip, I knew I had made the right decision hiring him. I cannot thank him enough.
We chose the complete 2-hour package. Wow 😮 well worth the money.
I got to watch the whole party and laugh and relax.
The kids loved him, and he even managed to coax the reluctant shy kids to get involved. I do not know how he remembers all the kids’ names.
He is a true professional. The magic and audience participation was genuinely fabulous.
I can not champion Magic Philip enough. Hire Him Now!” Frankie Lyons Staylbridge (August 2021)
“After some research we found Magic Philip. And I am absolutely delighted that we did. He made my son’s 5th birthday party certainly one to remember for all the right reasons.
We paid a bit extra for the whole package and I’d really recommend it. Philip takes all the stress away – managing the children in his own natural and friendly way. He has a complete talent; remembering all the children’s names, engaging with them and helping organise the rhythm of the day. So many parents commented on the show and were really impressed with Magic Philip.

“I found Magic Philip after searching for virtual magic shows and he showed his reliability from the get go, getting in touch straight away and continued communicating with us throughout the booking process. He provided a fantastic 30 minute virtual magic show with our 5-12 year olds on zoom and made a real effort to engage with all the group, being understanding of those who were a little more shy than others or had specific needs.
Thank you Magic Philip for a lovely, fun filled session. Our young people (and their families) loved it! 😀” Hannah Guthrie(April 2021)
“We hired Philip for our 7 year old’s zoom birthday party. From first contact, Philip was so helpful and friendly, answering all our questions and made the booking really easy. The party itself was a HUGE success.
Philip entertained a group of around 15 seven year olds and younger siblings brilliantly. He had them in fits of giggles from the start and kept all their attention throughout the entire show.
He addressed them all personally and wowed them with his tricks, puppets and gags. Philip was genuinely hugely entertaining and we found that we were (as adults) laughing along just as much as the kids.
Our son had a fantastic experience and all his friends (and their parents) were really impressed.
Can’t say just how much we enjoyed the whole experience from start to finish – Philip is very professional and genuinely seems a really lovely guy. He’s born to be an entertainer!” Sarah Grainger (March 2021)

I would highly recommend Philip to anyone wanting a different, enjoyable and stress-free party. Philip took control on the day, which left me free to chat to the adults and sip on champers, which I loved. He knew exactly how to deal with all the different personalities and did it all with a smile – the whole experience was slick and seamless.

“Thank you for making Jack’s 6th Birthday Party so magical! Jack and all his friends had an absolutely fantastic time and all the adults enjoyed it too. It was wonderful to see 18 children sit so entranced and then burst out with laughter. The show was not only entertaining because of the magic tricks but by your wonderful sense of humour and conversation throughout the show. We were very impressed with the care and attention to detail you gave from the moment we booked. You had everything under control as the first little guests arrived and you managed to keep the lively children in hand and include the quieter children all in a lovely friendly and yet funny way. How do you remember all their names?! The children have all said how much they enjoyed ” and that the party was absolutely brilliant. Thank you for making Jack feel so special and for giving us all a fun, fun, fun party that we will never forget.” – Janet & Neal Foundly, Alderley Edge. (March 2011)
“Superb! That is what my 5 year old said about your complete party package as she drifted off to sleep last night! You were brilliant, the children loved you, and told their parents, many sending me texts last night about how much their children had loved it. From my point of view you were well and truly beyond my expectations. I especially loved the way you guided me, brought in children who missed Mums and the way you remember names! Thanks again, I hope that the recommendations bare some fruit from yesterday’s party, and indeed if we do a big party again, you will be the first on my list to call!” – Adele & Henry Marsh, Heaton Moor. (March 2011)
“We were delighted with your show. Penelope had the most fabulous time and your magic show really complimented Penelope’s Snow White fancy dress party. You really made Penelope’s party extra special for her and her guests. She absolutely loved being involved in your magic tricks. I will definitely recommend you to other parents.” – Nicola & Carl Spencer, Oldham. (February 2011)
“Thank you so much for providing such first class entertainment for Isabella’s party. Bella had an absolute ball and so did each and every one of her friends! But more importantly all the adults were raving, you were talk of the town! I think Jo will definitely use you for his corporate ‘do’s’ and I will forward your details on to as many people as possible.” – Marianne & Jo Sellick, Bowdon. (February 2011)
“Thank you for the fantastic party today. You had all the children completely spellbound. We all thoroughly enjoyed your show and our children haven’t stopped talking about it. Well done!” – Teresa & David Allinson, Triple Birthday Party Wilmslow. (February 2011)
“A massive thank you for all your hard work and entertainment for Joe’s 4th Birthday Party, he absolutely had one of the best days of his little life and your act played a huge part in this, magic is now officially cool! We were really impressed by your professionalism and ability to keep more than 35 four year olds engaged for two hours and we had some really great feedback from the parents too with many mums and dads saying what a great party it was at school this morning (and there were a couple of children who had brought in their magic wands to class too!).
p.s. We had another birthday party to attend yesterday with an “entertainer” who only served to highlight how good you are! His old grey teddies, cassette player and sign with 061 still on it were not a patch on MAGIC PHILIP, most of the kids had got up and ran off after about ten minutes… felt a bit sorry for him! Needless to say the mum who was at Joe’s party asked for your number for next time.” – Vicky & Jeff Crewe, Timperley. (February 2011)
“We really liked your traditional comedy magic show, and also appreciated your management of the whole event. The children’s giggling and laughter throughout the show spoke for itself, but feedback after the event was also fantastic: one boy told his mum that it was the most wonderful party he had ever been to. Kids might ‘grow up too quickly’ nowadays, but there is clearly plenty of appetite for your kind of show. Please keep up the good work: we look forward to booking you again in the future.” – Jo & David Dagustun, Hyde. (January 2011)
“Thank you so much for the wonderful entertainment you provided at our daughter’s party, your ability to capture the attention of 25 little children’s attention for such a long time was astounding and I have received many compliments about the party from the other parents who said you were wonderful. Thank you also for all your communications in the lead up to the party, it was very reassuring to know that everything was in hand. I will be sure to recommend you any of our friends who would wish for a fun (stress free) party.” – Lesley & Mark Woodward, Tarporley. (January 2011)
“We all had a great party; kids & parents equally found your magic show fun & exciting! With having the party at home, it took the pressure off us having someone organise & keep the children entertained & extremely happy. It was lovely to see them all being involved, but especially for the extra attention on Edward. He hasn’t stopped talking about it & loves the magic set you gave him. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you; thanks again.” – Sally & Eamonn O’Loughlin Didsbury. (January 2011)

Magic Grandma also enjoyed herself loads.” – Amanda & Peter Odudu, Newton-le-Willows

“We hired Magic Philip for our son’s 5th birthday party, & he was fantastic. All of the children were engaged throughout, & the adults really enjoyed it too. We chose the 2-hour stress-free party package, & it was well worth the money. I was actually able to sit down & enjoy the show, & I can honestly say I felt serene throughout! Lots of the mums commented on how good he was. We had the party at home, with the magic show & games in the living room & the party food in the back room. Even with 17 children, it was all very civilised as he was well & truly in control. He is very chatty & sociable & is great with the children. Highly recommended.” – Victoria & Matthew Philpotts, Didsbury
“Niamh had a wonderful time & is still talking about you & the show. It certainly was a stress-free event for us & your control over the children was remarkable, particularly how quickly you learned & used the children’s names to interact with them. We want to thank you also for including Niamh’s older cousins in the show &, contrary to expectations, you caught them under your spell too! We have no doubt that we will be in touch with you in the future. We have & will continue to recommend you to others without reservation. Thank-you for giving Niamh a very special birthday party that she will remember for a long time to come.” – Lisa & Tom Dolly, Eccleston
