Close-Up Magician for Weddings and Parties

KDH Photo are not taking any more bookings this year, so please enjoy Max Durdant-Hollamby's fantastic talent, a close-up Magician working at weddings in Brighton and Hove and Sussex. We recommend him!


I provide magical entertainment for events, weddings and parties. Close up Magic creates a wonderful atmosphere at any event – it entertains and amazes guests leaving them with a unique and memorable experience.  As a Close-up Magician I walk amongst guests and perform magic no more than a couple of feet away. I  mainly perform card magic with a few unexpected twists!

“A great young magician with fabulous inter-personal skills entertaining the young and not so young in a fabulous way.” Michael Collins, CEO Goldcrest Ltd


In addition to performing at events I also love to teach magic. I have taught magic to students for over a year now and it’s a great skill for young people to learn. It’s an excellent way to develop inter-personal skills and and to help build confidence, meet people and make friends. And it’s a great alternative to screen time, increasing concentration and manual and mental dexterity. And most importantly, it’s a lot of fun!

“My boys really look forward to their lessons with Max.  He has a great rapport with both boys (aged 10 and 12) and the magic they have learnt has really helped to build their self- confidence and social skills.  It is also wonderful to see them focused and self motivated when it comes to practicing their new tricks.  It has been a truly magical experience!!” Giselle

“My lessons are fun, and I love learning new tricks and showing my magic tricks to my friends.  Max is kind and fun to learn with”  Sammy, age 10

“My lessons are so much fun that I can’t wait for the next one. I absolutely love the concept of magic, I also love fooling my friends!  MAX IS THE BEST MAGIC TEACHER EVER!!!!!!” Jasper, age 12

I hope you enjoy the video – thanks for watching and I look forward to hearing from you!
