I’m a close-up table magician based in Chester. I provide entertaining close-up magic at weddings, corporate events and parties for clients who want their guests to have a fantastic experience. I’ve performed all over the UK as a close up magician (often called a table magician) for big companies such as PEPSI, ASTRAZENECA and COMPUTER 2000 for corporate and trade events, aswell as being the regular corporate magician at EVERTON FOOTBALL CLUB.
John Holt is one of the best magicians I have ever seen!
Not only is John a great magician but he is an amazing entertainer, he had us all laughing together…
He was key in creating an enjoyable atmosphere amongst our attendees.

John Holt is one of the best magicians I have ever seen in action. He was excellent with our guests and really went a long way to amaze and entertain them. I was particularly impressed by how funny he is and not only are you getting a magician for your money you are getting someone that is sure to make you laugh out loud. I would wholeheartedly recommend John Holt to anyone who is considering a close up magician. He would be perfect for practically any special occasion: Weddings, Corporate, Parties etc. - he really brings a group of people together and elevates the mood of the event.Joanne Evernden, Event Coordinator, Tents and Events
For our staff Christmas party I wanted to do something different. I had heard great reviews of John’s act so I decided to invite him to entertain our staff. John’s magic act along with his incredible personality went down a storm with our team. His magic tricks amazed everyone and they are still left wondering how he does what he does. Not only is John a great magician but he is an amazing entertainer, he had us all laughing together and made the act relaxed and fun throughout. Thanks for an amazing evening John!Gareth Evans – Operations Manager, Cineworld Chester
I was organising a black tie and diamond ball for my 30th Birthday and and wanted to do things to impress my guests. I thought a magician would bring some more magic to the night. I was certainly not disappointed! John Holt came as a recommendation and all I can say is Wow! Every time I saw any of my family and friends being entertained by him they had a smile or a look of astonishment on their face. It was an extra touch that I am so pleased I had and it did indeed make the night that little bit more special. Looking forward to the next party! Whenever I need a magician again I wont be looking anywhere else!Carl Scourfield - Owner Pied Bull Chester
We booked John for our Wedding in November and had him perform while we were having our photos after the Ceremony. He was brilliant and his mix of magic and engaging humour had everyone entertained. We were worried people would be bored in the time between Ceremony and Reception. But, John helped make it into one of the most talked about moments of the day.Mr and Mrs Densham, Blackpool
Unbelievable magic under our very noses at dinner, with mixed reaction of stunned quiet amazement, how did he do that, to shrieks of glee and the unexpected joy of disbelief. Professional deception at its very best, a real must have at any party! THANKS AGAIN!Duttons, Chester
I had seen John at a restaurant, performing amazing close up magic. We decided to have a party for my husband at home and wanted something different. I booked John for the evening. He really surpassed himself! We were all very impressed not only with his magic, but also with his personality and wit. What a lovely man. John made my husbands birthday very special. I thank him very much and would not hesitate to recommend him.Linda Melville, Heswall
We booked John for a social night and he went down a storm. His skills as a close up magician are absolutely brilliant. Everyone was totally amazed and impressed by what he could do. He is really funny and kept a lively banter throughout all his tricks. I cannot recommend him highly enough. On a personal note I found John to be a great bloke who I will definitely will be using again. He really took the night to another level. Thanks John you were a superstar!L. Monk, Coppull, Lancashire
At Frankie and Benny’s we have used John on several occasions to entertain our guests at new openings and special events. His magic really is spectacular and with a great sense of humour he adds to the atmosphere and definitely enhances the experience of the guests. He is entertaining to all members of the family and we will definitely continue to use him.Frankie and Benny’s restaurant group
John Holt was a pleasure to deal with. He was extremely professional, courteous and punctual. Exactly what is needed when you are hosting a Gala dinner! He made sure that he made it to every one of our New Year’s Eve guests and all were very impressed with his performance. I would definitely book John again in the future.Laura Hines, Operations Manager at Holiday Inn
John performed at our sportsmans dinner with former Liverpool player, John Aldridge. Everyone was amazed by his magic and it was great to hear the laughter coming from tables. People are still talking about him - an amazing magician!Sue McQuade, Manager at Sheridan’s Bar, Wallasey
John performed for us the latest James Bond Premiere, SKYFALL in Chester. With exciting card tricks and a wonderful sense of humour, everybody really enjoyed what he did and felt it made their night even more special. We would 100% recommend John and he will be top of our list when we need entertainment at future events.Anthony Moore - Marketing and PR - Marketing PRojects
John entertained our guests at a VIP Launch evening at the hotel recently, he was key in creating an enjoyable atmosphere amongst our attendees, and we had lots of good feedback from the guests, they commented not only on John’s ‘magical skills’ but his sense of humour and ability to entertain people no matter what their age. I would definitely recommend John for a variety of functions and will hopefully be using him again soon.H. Martin, Marketing Director - Holt Lodge Hotel

All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed your table magic. Several have asked for your details for their wedding too!R. Davies - Chester

For my husband’s 50th birthday I wanted something different, so I booked John to entertain my guests. Everyone loved his show and, besides the great close up magic, he kept us laughing the whole way through.Alison, Chester
