"I have seen Darren's magic develop over a few years. He has always been excellent but I hired him for a party recently and he has reached another level. I am only pissed off because none of my guests are talking about the superb food, drinks and music but his bloody magician. Haha. Seriously? I can't recommend him highly enough. Great value and seriously wonderful illusions and tricks. Absolutely magical."

"Darren did close-up magic at our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made! He was so great at circulating the party, loads of people had the chance to see tricks and everyone was completely amazed. He was really friendly and responsive throughout the whole process (even during the pandemic!) and was a real joy to work with. Would definitely recommend for your evening do at a wedding - just adds a lot of fun!"

"Well, not really sure what to say! Many people said you were the best Close-Up Magician and the magic was the best they had seen! Two professional croupiers were amazed at your bedside manner with strangers you had never met before. Sharron and I were blown away with the tricks and the banter. I would definitely recommend you as a Magician to get the group of people revved up and ready for the big dinner speeches. We know six people who are going to use your services next year for party's and
weddings. Thank you for a wonderful show, which just made a magical day come true!"

He impressed all ages from age 7 up to 97 and had everybody laughing with amazement.

Will definitely have Darren again without hesitation he was brilliant. Thx Darren and hopefully see you very soon."

"We booked Darren to do 90 minutes of close up magic for our wedding last weekend, and wow!!! He absolutely blew us all away! I have no idea how he did any of his magic, and our guests loved the surprise. Darren was very professional, and made sure he went around to all guests. He even came and did one last trick at our top table for us when we went in to the hall to sit down. I would highly recommend Darren, and would definitely use him again for any other parties. Thank you so much for making our special day even more memorable."

He's a true gentleman and a fabulous magician, I totally recommend him."

"We had a magic show from Darren zoomed live to our house last weekend and it was soooo much fun! Our favourite part was the mind reading... how did he do that??! Crazy! We linked with friends for our show so were able to share some time ‘together’, interacting in these otherwise dull times. Definitely recommend Darren!"

"You might think that close magic couldn’t possibly survive the lockdown? I know Lee and I certainly did…how wrong could we be. Zoom came to the rescue again - how amazing. Looking that close worked so well, we had a great time. It’s so amazing how creative people are making things work. We loved being close to the action but far away at the same time. Darren Whichellos ‘Las Vagas - Rat Pack’ style it worked so well with the magic. Cant wait for his next performance."
