Is Pete a member of the Magic Circle?
Yes. Pete is, in fact, an Associate of the Inner Magic circle (AIMC). The higher ‘AIMC’ level is the highest rank achievable to magicians by examination. London’s Magic Circle is the most prestigious magic society in the world and entry is by audition only.
Has Pete been on TV?
Yes, a number of times. He recently shot his own street magic series for Insight TV (Around The World In 80 Tricks), and is also currently shooting a ten part TV series about neuroscience and magic, called Secrets Of The Brain.His first TV appearance was Magic Party, a show for BBC2 Northern Ireland, where he performed with Dynamo. He also very recently appeared on two episodes of BBC1’s Saturday prime time show Now You See It. In addition, he gets approached by Britain’s Got Talent every year. Every year he declines their offers…
What does Pete wear when performing?
It’s up to you – Pete is equally at home in a smart suit or formal wear as he is in smart casual or more “street” casual wear. Although various of Pete’s YouTube and TV appearances feature Pete, dressed casually, performing “street magic”, the vast majority of the events that Pete works at are smart formal occasions. At the moment street magic is very fashionable, but it depends entirely on the event, the venue and what you are after in your performer. At a wedding, say, Pete will dress very differently than he would for backstage at the NME awards… Just chat to Pete and he will cater to your event’s dress code.
How much will it cost to hire Pete?
All events are different, so there is, unfortunately, no single one-price-fits-all quote here… The best way to find out the price for your event is to send Pete a quick email via the Contact page, or give him a call for a no-obligation quote. Short notice bookings can sometimes be more flexible on price, as can daytime bookings, or simply bookings in otherwise quiet periods.
The amount quoted will take into account the location, the length of time performing, and whether you are after close up or cabaret/stage magic (or both). Also, some clients ask for Pete to create special tricks for their event’s theme, which may sometimes affect the price.
How do I know all these testimonials are real?
This has actually never been asked, but in case you were wondering…
If you add Pete on LinkedIn you’ll see a lot of verifiably genuine recommendations that people have left on his page, including from Soho House Group, AKQA, Microsoft, and many more.
Does Pete give lessons?
