Two great things about Ginger:
(there are more . . . )
(1) He's incredibly well organised and communicative and businesslike about making arrangements in advance. You know exactly where you are with him and can rely on him.
(2) He has a brilliant ability to tune in to the occasion and engage with people young or old, whether it's formal or informal. It's not some distant stage show; more like having a good friend who nevertheless knows some magic from another planet. The amazement and laughter light up the whole occasion. Highly recommended.

Damian. Just to say a massive thank you for Sunday. Your magic went down a storm - as you are no doubt used to. People have also commented on your personality - magic aside - with several wishing to take you home!!
Thanks again - perhaps we might have need to work together again.
All the best

I booked Damian for a management event. I didn't really know what to expect but he really did not disappoint, he made the evening more enjoyable, we laughed, gasped and were amazed, we talked about it the next day so that tells you he made an impact, so much so we asked him to come back to another event shortly after which again was enjoyed by all. If you want a magician ask Damian, not only is his fantastic magic but he has a great personality to go with it! THANKYOU Damian!

Amazing. Amazing. Amazing.
We were all in absolute awe of Damian. Would highly recommend.
Abbey McGuire - Wedding
2nd December 2021
Damian came and joined us for a birthday celebration where we all enjoyed an hour of magic sat at a dinner table in a restaurant.
To be so up close and personal to a magician whilst astounding you with their tricks is just amazing.
Damian was charming, professional and left us wondering what and earth did we witness.
Understated and not show offy, we thoroughly enjoyed an hour of Damians craft of pure magic!
He knows how to manage a gaggle of women who have had a glass of wine or 2 too.
Helen Jefford - Birthday Dinner
17th November 2021
From my initial chat with Damian to the end of his performance, he was friendly, helpful and engaging. The booking service, with follow up communication, was clear, timely and easy to use.
But this was nothing compared with Damian’s literally jaw dropping magical collection of dexterous hand movements and clever tricks. He is a brilliant magician without any pomposity. All his tricks were excellent, some of them were absolutely mind-blowing and impossible to fathom how he did what he did. Two of our table were no further than a foot away and could not see how he managed to manipulate and change objects so skillfully. We were stumped by his magic and were still discussing it the following day. He really helped to make my birthday gathering extra special and he will definitely be booked for future engagements.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ for a talented and lovely guy.
Sarah Fuller - Birthday celebration

We hired Damian to drive traffic to our stand at a business show. He was absolutely fantastic!! He stopped and brought a lot of qualified traffic ready for a conversation. I can't think of any other better way to achieve results even close to what he achieved. Shows are expensive and you need to make them worth while, Damian certainly adds a lot of value. His close up magic skills are nothing short of mind boggling - several times we drew big crowds who were awed. Myself included. I won't do a show again without him!
Phil Martin - Business Exhibition
12th November 2021
We booked Damian to perform at our wedding whilst we had drinks and canapés and everyone was blown away.
He was simply incredible. All his tricks left us amazed and dumbfounded. The following morning at breakfast we were all still talking about his magic, still trying to figure out just how it was done.
We cannot recommend highly enough, not only were the tricks truly brilliant but Damian is such a lovely man, extremely friendly and also very professional.
If you are looking for a magician, look no further than Damian and Ginger Magic, you will not be disappointed.
Chris Dines - Wedding

Damian was amazing, booked at short notice he was thoroughly professional and absolutely blew everyone’s minds! He totally set the scene and added a touch of special brilliance to the party. 100% recommended, will be booking again soon!
Neil Ling - Wife's Birthday
25th October 2021
Absolutely incredible! We had Damian perform at our wedding a couple of weeks ago, and it was the best decision we've made (other than getting married!). During the photos, all we could hear were gasps, laughing, cheering and general astonishment all coming from where Damian was performing. His skills as a magician and performer are amazing, so smooth! He's a proper nice bloke too. You really won't regret booking him. We've had so much feedback from guests too!
Daley Bosher - Wedding
22nd October 2021
Damian is great - his magic is incredible and leaves everyone impressed and completely baffled to understand how he did it.
He joined us at a family birthday drinks celebration, mingling among the 70'odd guests for a few hours. I can't rate him highly enough, and he really helped to make the event memorable for everyone there!
On a practical level, booking was super easy (including great flexibility around the inevitable Covid delays), Damian was timely and highly professional.
Thank you so much, Damian! I can't wait to find an excuse to enjoy your magic again!
Georgie Hopkins - Birthday celebration
19th October 2021
Damian was awesome at the business show, he brought more people to talk to us than any other method I've used in the past. Totally professional, polite and not too pushy with potential clients, oh and his magic is awesome.... Totally recommend for any event.

Sarah Knight - Event Guest
14th September 2021
We had one of our famous Cod Steaks parties last Friday evening and Damian came and performed at it. What a huge antidote to being locked up for 2 years! The magic was phenomenal, and Damian brought a fresh exciting dimension to the evening. Huge fun and now a huge magic fan - I would recommend inviting him to perform at every occasion - its seriously good...
Mark Pyrah - Company Party
14th September 2021
We booked Damian very late in the day, I think just a week before our wedding reception. At once, he was easy to talk to and arrange things with. He was reliable and timely in all the phone and email exchanges we had, and took time to explain exactly what we'd be getting if we booked him. So we booked him! And so to the magic... Damian visited all our guests at their table or wherever they were and yes, he completely amazed and bamboozled every single one of us with incredible close-up trickery. We pushed the boat out and booked a couple of extras (champagne toast and some magic just for the Bride and Groom) and weren't disappointed. Throughout his time with us the tipis were full of gasps, cries of amazement - Damian's show is worth every penny, I promise you won't regret it.
Andy Graham - Wedding

Damian gave an exceptional performance for the guests at my Mums 70th birthday, who were amazed with his magic and trickery. He made it a day to remember.
I would highly recommend him.
Pete Sims - Mum's Birthday
10th August 2021
We couldn't recommend Damian enough! From the moment we booked Damian the communication has been so professional, putting us at ease and taking soo much pressure off.
When we were looking for a magician for our wedding, we were after someone who could mingle with our guests and entertain them, without us having to have too much involvement - and what can I say, Damian stole the show!
So many of our guests told us about the close up magic they had just seen and how impressive it was. After witnesses some unbelievable magic ourselves, we can safely say you won't be disappointed!
Damian is so approachable and so lovely to work with, so you know you are in safe hands.
I really hope to see Damian at an event soon.
Thank you for making our day so special.

Good morning Damian,
It was such a pleasure to meet you at last yesterday. Thank you again for your awesome entertainment, people were talking about it all night, you totally smashed it!
If I hear of anyone who is looking for entertainment such as your amazing magic, I will most certainly point them in your direction.
All the very best and stay safe.
Voula Browne - Company Summer Party
23rd July 2021
It is impossible not to be impressed with Damian’s skill as a magician. He appeals to all ages, from my parents in their eighties to my friend's 11yr old daughter.
He has a fantastic memory for names, which makes the whole event a very personal one.
I watched at least ten different tricks and still have no idea how any of them were done.
His easy way with people ensures that even the shyest of guests will get involved and thoroughly enjoy his fantastic ability as a magician.
I would wholeheartedly recommend him in any environment, from a garden party like mine or a corporate event.
Glynn Cropper - Birthday
16th July 2021
We had Damian at our wedding and he was nothing less than fantastic, we had him for the whole reception and evening. He managed to get to all of our guests and they all loved him and his wonderful magic. We also had the couples surprise and it was amazing and a great gift to remind us of a great day.

Pauline Collins - Husband's Birthday Party
18th November 2019
We booked Damian for our wedding in August and can honestly say it was one of the best decisions we made.
We always wanted to have a magician at our wedding but finding the right one was difficult. There are lots of magicians around but we were pretty uninspired by them.
Right from the first video call with Damian back in December we knew he was the right choice.
Originally we only booked Damian for the drinks reception but seeing how brilliant he was and how much our family and friends were enjoying him, we asked him to stay for the wedding breakfast- that’s how good he is.
Whenever we heard our guests laughing and cheering throughout the day we could see it was because of Damian.
3 months on and our guests are still talking about him! There are cheaper options but you will get what you pay for. Damian is brilliant and worth every penny. Honestly, do not hesitate to book because you won’t regret it.
Katie and Denis - Wedding
17th November 2019
My wife and I hired Damian to perform magic at our wedding and he was absolutely fantastic!
His tricks are insane and can turn even the biggest cynic into a magic-lover.
Damian’s magic was, without a doubt, our favourite part of the day 😊

Ken Williams - Friend's Birthday Party (Ken was a guest)
16th November 2019
After deciding to throw a party for my wife’s 70th birthday I thought it would good to have a magician to increase people’s experience.
I stumbled across the Gingermagic website. From our initial communication I found Damian very professional.
He spent a magical 2 hours with us and enthralled everyone. Today, 2 days after the party I’m getting messages thanking us for the invitation and asking,”who was that guy”.
Damian turned what would have been a good party into an awesome experience.
I’d certainly recommend Damian if I was arranging another party use him again.

5th November 2019
We booked Damian for a dinner party for our sons 18th birthday. From the very first contact I felt we had made the right choice, Damian understood our requirements. On the evening Damian really showed why he has so many wonderful reviews, he is certainly very accomplished as a magician and showman as he drew us in and included the whole table. There were many mouth open moments and I can honestly say all age groups were in awe and he more than contributed to a wonderful and memorable evening. I would certainly recommend Damian. I would like to thank Damian and his wife Cait, the Office genie, for a fantastic experience from start to finish.
Louise Tunnicliffe - Son's 18th Birthday dinner party
28th October 2019
Damian performed his magic during our drinks reception of our wedding and he was absolutely brilliant! So many of our guests commented on how amazed they were and he had everyone laughing in awe. He was great at mingling with the guests, ensuring he performed to as many guests as possible. He also did a special trick for just me and Markus which was just perfect and a very memorable moment from our wedding! Thanks very much Damian!
Camilla Johnstone - Wedding
27th October 2019
We worked with Damian Surr - or Ginger Magic as he is sometimes known! - recently, at Katie and Den's wedding in Wales. Wow, what a fantastic magician and a genuinely lovely person. A great professional, he stayed later than booked and had all the guests equally laughing and equally amazed. As photographers we work with lots of magicians, but Damian is definitely one of the best. Highly recommended - if you book Damian for your wedding or event, you are guaranteed fantastic entertainment.
M and G Photographic - Wedding photographer
16th October 2019
Gingermagic is Ace!
The conversation at breakfast the next morning consisted only of 'how he did it' particularly about the stick man queen of clubs. General consensus was that it really is magic.
Really easy to organise the event with Damian, even when done at the very last minute.
If you are looking for a magician for a business event, or any other event really, I would highly recommend 🙂

This magician is brilliant and so professional. He left us speechless and wondering how on earth he could do what seems impossible and so close up too. I would highly recommend him for any event mine was a 70th Birthday Party which was magical. 🧙♀️

8th October 2019
This guy is simply brilliant! We had Damian as the entertainment at our recent client event and everyone was really impressed with his tricks, at one point he had a card we signed encased in ice! No idea how. Would highly recommend and would certainly hire him again!
Jennifer Whitton - Client party
8th October 2019
We held a joint birthday party and we booked gingermagic for the evening. To say that he was brilliant would be an understatement. The magic was superb, all close magic amazing everybody and they will be talking about this for a long time. If I have another event I would certainly book Damian again. Would I recommend Gingermagic. Absolutely, without a doubt.

My husband loves magic and I wanted to make his 60th birthday dinner extra special; which it did.
I’ve hired Damian before, so knew what to expect. He is simply Magical! 😂.
No seriously, it was amazing and fun and spellbinding.
Damian is very friendly. He really interacted with everyone and made us all laugh as well as amazing us.
Another outstanding performance, which helped to create a very memorable event.
Jo Vincent Fernie - Husband's Birthday Meal

We've booked Damien twice now (It would have been three times but he was already booked!). He's gone down an absolute storm at our client parties and both times we've been inundated with compliments from our guests about his amazing magic skills and lovely personality.
Lisa Hill - Client party

Damian supported our company at 100% Design Exhibition, Late September 2019. The way he introduced clients to us to support lead generation was fantastic!! Can't recommend Damian enough for his professionalism and fun way he reads the moment to generate the best for you !
Thanks Again Damian and we'll catch up soon.

What a super close up magician. Everyone was amazed and were talking about him all night. I am so pleased that we decided on ginger magic to entertain our wedding guests.
Thank you very much Damian.
Ian Howard - Wedding Blessing
26th September 2019
Having never arranged to have a magician to a do of mine before, I really had no idea how to go about it. I just picked a few contacts from the internet. However, Gingermagic was able to offer me 3 tiers of magicians from a large pool of individuals. He made it quite clear what each tier represented and therefore why the charge was different. I chose a tier 2 magician, he found me Zap and it all went beautifully smoothly with no sense of angst for me. Zap was great and so enhanced my party. I would definitely recommend going through Damian Surr at Gingermagic if you are looking for a magician.
Charlotte Heenan - Birthday Entertainment
24th September 2019
We chose Damian to perform at our wedding reception because we wanted a class act to entertain our guests which were mostly adults. He mingled well with our guests and performed a variety of clever tricks. The photographer took some fantastic shots of our guests being amazed! You could tell Damian was very comfortable in adapting to any venue and that is testament to his professionalism. He has been a delight to deal with from our first contact with him and extremely prompt in replying to email and phone. Our guests were raving about him after the wedding and he really bought a touch of fun to the event. We were amazed by his tricks, he is a really lovely guy and has provided us with some wonderful memories.

Damian did a great show for our party. The mix and mingle meant everyone got to see amazing magic up close and the big trick at the end was well worth the extra money!

Firstly it was lovely to meet you yesterday, well where do we start ! When we first started looking for a magician we never expected to find one as talented as you.
From start to finish that's all we could hear was gasps from around the room from our astonished guests, you were amazing and really added the extra special touch to Katie and Scott's day.
So many guests came up to us to say how fantastic you were and we couldn't have asked for anything more, you are so talented and your presence in the room was special, you certainly lit up the room what was a grey wet day outdoors and for that we are truly grateful !!
The extra little touches were also amazing and will remain in our memories forever !
Paula Webb - Mother of the bride
21st August 2019
We had seen Gingermagic before and knew straight away that we wanted him to perform at our wedding! He is friendly, professional, but above all a fantastic magician. We had mixed everyone up a lot at tables, and his tricks between courses really helped to break the ice. The special Couple Bonding Effect trick was a super moment - and gave us a lovely keepsake. Definitely recommended if you want a ‘proper’ magician!! We have seen others at weddings and they haven’t come close. Thank you Damian!
Hattie James - Bride

The guy's a legend. He was brilliant at the wedding we attended on Saturday at Burford in the Cotswolds, and I'm pretty sure I've encountered him once in the past, too (at an Inntravel event in Harrogate)? Anyway, such a great entertainer and skilled magician - and a thoroughly nice bloke. Highly recommended.

Heather Stride - Navy Summer Party
21st July 2019
What a fantastic performance by Gingermagic and the very talented Damian. My 70th Birthday celebration guests where mesmerised and amazed by the sheer MAGIC of the close up performance. Damian has performed on several special occasions for me but never fails to amaze the guests. Something new this time was a memento pack of playing cards and the final performance was the Rubik's cube in which every guest was involved with. I don’t want to give too much away but this has to be seen to be believed!
Another 5 star performance. Thank you Damian

Paul was great on Saturday. Please thank him and thanks for providing him. I’ve had plenty of positive comments back - they enjoyed his tricks and they are still trying to work out how he did them! Great stuff.
Charles Elderton - Birthday Celebration
3rd July 2019
Damian came highly recommended by a good friend of mine after he entertained for her birthday party. Unfortunately, Damian was already booked for the date of my son’s wedding. However, he offered to provide one of the other magicians from his team.
I was concerned whether the replacement would be impressive, but I trusted Damian and made the booking. Marc was marvellous and everyone was astonished by his tricks. He entertained guests after the wedding ceremony. It worked really well. Everyone could share their excitement with other guests. It gave them something in common they could talk about.
Thanks again, Damian. Marc delivered all of your promises.
I’ll definitely be booking Gingermagic again.
Marianne de Giorgio – Son’s Wedding
29th June 2019
We wanted to add a little more entertainment for the guests this year.
I chose Damian because of the quality of his reviews. The booking process was very smooth and easy. On the night, Damian was there before me and even sent a text to let me know he had arrived.
The magic was very interesting and engaging. Damian himself was very friendly and approachable. His tricks were second to none and had the wow factor. Our guests were totally gobsmacked about how they were done. Super magician and super night. Thank you.
I wouldn't hesitate to use the ginger magician in the future and I’ll be recommending Damian to anyone having an event!
Alison Brown - Charity Masquerade Ball
20th June 2019
Damian is an incredible magician. 2 weeks ago he did our wedding, and we could not have asked for more. Not only were his tricks mind blowing but he has such a great personality, a true showman, and had everyone wanting more.
You WILL NOT find a better magician.
Graham and Emma Noble - Wedding Entertainment
15th June 2019
Damian performed ‘mix and mingle’ magic tricks at my mother’s 90th birthday and he was main the topic of conversation throughout the afternoon! As well as amazing magic tricks he was extremely pleasant and fitted with the guests perfectly. Would definitely book him again for any future events.
Jeanne Creed - Mother's birthday party
26th May 2019
So many people at my party still are taking about you and what a wonderful performance you gave. Also, one of the most memorable comments of the night was that a guest arrived but didn’t know anyone, you brought a group together including that guest and left them all talking together awed by your magic, an amazing icebreaker and they left as friends.
Very best wishes,
Sue Lipscombe - Birthday Party follow up email

I just wanted to drop you a line to say that you were absolutely fantastic at the party last night, you were a real gem and it was so nice hearing people talking about you this morning as a really wonderful experience.

After looking a many websites I found Gingermagic's website to be very clear, professional and informative. Completing the online enquiry form was straight forward and easy to use. I also liked the automated response which managed my expectations going forward. Shortly after completing this I received a call from Damian himself who came across as very friendly, personable and professional. I'm convinced that we have chosen the best act for Katie and Scott's big day.
Paula Webb - Booking process
30th April 2019
Damian entertained at my wife’s retirement party in 2017 and we were so impressed that we invited him back for mine in 2019.
On both occasions, Damian asked appropriate questions upfront to optimise the experience and ensure it would meet expectations.
Damian was fantastic again and captivated all.
Damian is not only an excellent magician but a natural at working a room. We would strongly recommend Damian.

A few words from Fran and me, and on behalf of all our guests, to thank you very much for your magic display on Saturday. Everyone said how much they had enjoyed your various pieces of magic.
We were very sorry that Cait could not be with you on Saturday but quite understand why. We hope that your business continues to flourish - as indeed it deserves to do.
With many thanks again,

Very professional approach from the outset. Presented his magic to a party of 120, adjusting suitably for the different age ranges. Guests are still talking about him!! Would highly recommend.

Thanks Damian, for entertaining all our party guests. We’ve had any number of messages of appreciation of your amazing skills! If only I hadn’t dropped the smashed pieces of that ice-block into my gin and tonic, I might have been able to work out how the hell you did that! Magic!!
See you at the next party,
Geoff Harvey - Birthday party
11th March 2019
Our residents and guests were thrilled with the magic that Damian performed. We really couldn’t figure out how he made the extra holes in the disc. It left us wondering and wanting more. It was wonderful to see all ages enjoying the magic– everyone was thoroughly entertained.
Kerry Richardson – Retirement Village Event
27th February 2019
As a finale to the day’s 50th birthday entertainments, Damian totally delivered. Everyone was mesmerised and amazed by Damian’s magic, except for the appearance of the lemon (you know what I’m on about Damian), but what he did with the lemon later was brilliant and had everybody astounded. The 18 year olds present had their minds blown on several occasions, and they even asked if he was trained at Hogwarts (about the best compliment possible). Truly professional, great fun and thoroughly enjoyable, Damian gets 21 solid recommendations from us all.
Thanks again for a perfect end to a perfect day.

We found the video call really useful. It was fun to chat with Damian and watch a trick, just to get an idea of what to expect. It was also really nice that Damian was willing to have a video call as a few of the magicians we contacted didn’t offer this service. Damian came across as friendly and chatty and having the opportunity to chat beforehand made our decision to book him much easier! Can’t wait to see him perform at our wedding!

Damian performed at our Christmas party for the second time, and wowed our guest with his magic once again. The process of arranging the booking was straight-forward and very professional; Damian was happy to give advice on what works and what doesn't. His performance at our party was brilliant and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Damian for any event.
Erini Georgiou - Company Christmas Party
15th January 2019
We’re both really looking forward to seeing you perform at our wedding in August. Thanks for setting up the video call- it was really useful. We spoke to quite a few Magicians when deciding who to book and in the end it was the fact that we were able to see how good you were with our own eyes that made the decision easy. It was also really fun to just see a trick!
Katie Price - Soon to be married

Damian was absolutely fantastic at my 60th birthday celebration, and was a real talking point for the evening. Would highly recommend him, particularly as he responded very quickly to our last minute booking following an unfortunate cancellation. Thanks Damian!

Thank you Damian,
You truly are a superstar and our guests are still talking about the fantastic magic that you performed at our wedding and what a lovely man you are. You really made our wedding day so incredibly special and we'll always be grateful to you for that.
We wish you and your family a very Happy Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

This was a work Christmas party with a mix of people including some senior managers and directors. We needed to add something a bit special that people would remember. This was the first time we had arranged the work Christmas party for 160 people, so we wanted to impress!
I had Seen Damian before so knew he was good! I had made a mental note of the name, "Ginger Magic", after seeing Damian perform at a house party a few years ago. I didn't want to chance it with a Google search.
Damian started with some mingle magic as guests were arriving. He was careful not to intrude but made sure he performed for everyone. His magic was very clever and left everyone amazed. He is not brash or "in your face" but managed to capture everyone's attention perfectly. Then during the meal, he did some table magic, visiting 16 tables. He performed different magic at each table.
It was a great talking point during the party and afterwards at work! It allowed colleagues who don't know each other to have something to talk about and was a great ice-breaker.
I remember looking around during the meal and seeing whole tables of 10 people all mesmerised while Damian performed. All smiling, with mouths open!!
Damian was very thorough and stayed late to make sure he performed for all 16 tables! That was much appreciated. Beforehand all emails were responded to promptly and friendly.
It is still a talking point in the office, 3 weeks later. Feedback from everyone was brilliant.
Highly recommended to anyone organising a party.
Thank you Damian.

Recently saw Damian at a trade show, where he was "working" on one of the stands at the event...... he approached us and for the following 15 minutes blew our minds with his skill....... for most of it, he did the same trick and no matter how slow he was, and how much we concentrated, he still had us completely perplexed...... genuinely brilliant, and worth having at your event if you are planning some close up magic and entertainment for your guests.
Ashley Shorey-Mills - Trade Show Lead Generation Magic
4th December 2018
Hi there Damian,
We had the very best honeymoon together and are still remembering special little moments from our wonderful Wedding Day during which you played such an amazing part. Our friends are still talking about 'the incredible magician' and saying 'did you see when he..............'
You were astonishing and I could have watched you all night - pity the wedding got in the way really. We're so proud to have had you involved in our special day Damian. Thank you so much for everything you did to make it so magical.
We hope to see you again. You really are a superstar.

Damian entertained our guests brilliantly at our party at the RAC recently. They were enthralled and amazed by his magic tricks and our guests continued talking about him the next day. How did he do it? We would thoroughly recommend him for any event and any age group.

I wanted to say a huge thank you for what you did on Thursday evening. To say staff where entertained and ‘wowed’ would be an understatement. You were, as usual, truly professional and truly entertaining so very many thanks.
With best wishes
Stuart Hood - Corporate Dinner
21st November 2018
We have an office with 150 staff. This wasn't a specific event, it was part of our reward and recognition scheme for enhancing our working environment and keeping our staff happy. The idea was to entertain everyone, but we didn’t want all of the staff away from work at the same time.
I contacted 2 local magicians, but they said that they didn't want to do this type of event. My colleague found the Gingermagic website and, after looking through it, thought Damian would be ideal for us.
As it was a corporate event, and we haven't had a magician previously, I was concerned about how well it would be received and also whether it would be perceived to be good value for money. However, it was Mind blowing! I've had great feedback from all of my colleagues, every single one was positive!
Damian’s ability to fit our requirements was outstanding. We are a contact centre where people's time is closely scheduled. Damian’s idea, to fit all 150 people in, was to have 12x 15 min slots spread across 3 hours. This worked perfectly!
The magic was brilliant, everyone came away trying to figure out how he did it! I was also incredibly impressed that Damian adjusted each performance so they were all slightly different!
Very entertaining, well worth the money!
We will definitely be booking again.
Thank you Damian!

As I'm sure most people do I tried to be as keen eyed as possible and see just how the tricks were done, but I can honestly say Damian performed some of best the magic I've seen. Close up, slight of hand, mixed with some very impressive set points - it really looked impossible. Really talented guy.
1st November 2018
OMG, this magic show was absolutely amazing. Damian is a fantastic guy who interacts brilliantly. My guests were amazed by his show. Would 100% recommend him.

Damian, was in a class of his own.... He well and truly impressed everyone at my daughter's wedding.
I would HIGHLY recommend him.
He was a top man, with his magic he impressed everyone at my daughter's wedding. I myself very hard man to please, but I was smitten by Damian.
Well done. Highly recommend him.

You managed to attract people to our stand, entertain them and inform them of our company. You took the hard work of a trade show out of our hands and made us the envy of our competitors. Fantastic!
Peter Major - MGS Ski, Trade show
We had Damien to our joint birthday party and he was brilliant. Our guests were totally enthralled with his magic and it was brilliant to see their reaction to his tricks. Definitely made it a night to remember.
Birthday party 13th October 2018
Thank you for your performances at the show. Your entertainment was an immense help. To work in such close proximity to your audience, often scrutinised and surrounded by them, takes great skill to an art form. Truly magical.
John Cooper - Global Snow Shows
A pleasure too deal with from start to finish and Damian's performance at our wedding really helped make it that extra special for us and the guests, thank you Damian, highly recommend!! ♥️♦️♣️♠️🤵👰🥂
I have seen Damian perform at a number of weddings I have photographed and every time I have been wowed by his skill as a magician and the ability to entertain a crowd so naturally. His incredible close up magic is amazing and he is a very friendly guy. I'd definitely recommend Damian for any special occasion.
Hi I just wanted to say I had a 60th birthday party recently with a magician called Paul from Ginger Magic. Everyone enjoyed the magic and Paul blended in with the guests very well. My guests are still talking about him and what an amazing guy he was. Thank you so much for making my birthday party so special. Best regards Kim
Damian was everything we could have wanted at our wedding. He wowed our guests with we we can only describe as some form of wizardry.
He is extremely talented and one of the biggest talking points of our day.
Very professional and would highly recommend.
James and Victoria Maulgue 13.08.2018
A massive thanks to Damian for turning up to our wedding and doing some magic. He was very communicative up to the day, and stunned our guests with what I can only describe as some form of wizardry. The stuff I saw this man do, has made me question the very fabric of the universe.
Very talented magician, one of our biggest talking points of the day. Moved around circles of people with ease, very friendly and professional.
James & Victoria Maulgue 13.08.2018
We booked Damian (Gingermagic) for a joint birthday party. Damian was friendly and professional and the close up magi was mind blowing. Those present will be talking about the magic for a long time. There were 25 adults and 8 children and no matter what age the magic amazed. Would I recommend Gingermsgic, without a doubt
See this amazing magician at a birthday celebration last night and wow! Me and my hubby were amazed! Did everything up close and at a slow pace and he still left us all speechless. Brilliant and friendly guy. Would deffo consider booking him for an occasion
Damian's magic last night was amazing and what a nice chap we will certainly be talking about it for a long time highly recommend thank you
Had the pleasure of meeting GingerMagic last night at a joint birthday. I was blown away with the magic and I would highly recommend Damian at any event! Amazing!
WOW! Our guests were amazed by Damian's performance and will be talking about his magic for years to come. He amazed everyone, young and old with the most incredible magic. Professional, personable and a delight to have at our wedding - highly recommended
Absolutely mind-blowing magic - Damian performed at our wedding last week and amazed all of our guests - people will be talking about him for years to come! Definitely a hilight of the day for our guests, we highly recommend Damian if you are looking for unique and captivating entertainment. Thanks Damian!
What an absolute amazing performance. The tricks were brilliant and mind blowing. Definitely will recommend Damian
We hired Damian Surr for a family celebration. Our silver wedding weekend had a group of 15 aged 13 to 66. He was brilliant. we had close up table magic before dinner and a parlour show afterwards. When he left we were all trying to second guess the magic but all agreed some tricks were mind boggling!
This is the 2nd time that I've booked Damian @ Gingermagic. That really tells you everything you need to know - amazing entertainment that never fails to wow the guests. On top Damian is a great guy so getting everything booked in/setup for the day is easy. Thanks gain Damian - see you at the next party!
Entertained us all during my Grandmas 80th. Would recommend!
An amazing display at my wife’s 40th birthday party. If you’re considering booking GingerMagic I’d say ‘go for it’! You won’t regret it!! Absolutely brilliant!!
Lovely addition to my grandmas 80th Birthday party and everyone enjoyed the magic especially the kids! Definitely would recommend for events
Joe and I had an incredible wedding day, made all the better by the fab magic you performed! Everyone loved it and was amazed and astounded! The playing card from our trick was the first time we'd signed our new married name so will treasure forever!
We had the privilege of meeting Damian last night for are works anniversary never have I seen close up magic live on the telly yes and it’s always made me guess but having Damian do his magic there in front my eyes made my jaw drop am still have not stop talking about him aboustly amazing 5 stars is not enough for you Damian I hope we cross paths again and my daughter is with me so you can show her the amazing tricks many thanks a pleasure
DAMIAN TRULY MAGICAL!!!
Damian performed his magic for our guests at our wedding (26.5.18), 4 weeks on our guests are still talking about Damian trying to process what they saw!!!
From the first moment of contact Damian was professional and friendly. We would highly recommend him whatever the occasion.
Thankyou Damian for being part of our special day!
Anthony and Cherylyn (Finka)
Damian was AMAZING!
He entertained all my guests and heard cheers, ohhs, ahhhs and laughter coming from each of them.
He made time to also entertain us as bride and groom and was professional throughout.
Everyone commented on how excellent he was and would definitely recommend him and use him again in the future.
Thank you so much for making our wedding that much more extra special.
Thank you for a great performance at our wedding reception. You were a special surprise, nobody was expecting you which added to everyone's enjoyment. A week later we are all still scratching our heads trying to work out how you did it, including the ones who kept saying "I know how he did that" 🤣🤣🤣🤣. So you convinced the sceptics, not only the short sighted and the credulous. Thank you for making a wonderful day even better. Sally and Nick
What a fantastic decision to have Damian perform at our son and daughter in laws wedding on Saturday, everyone was amazed at his performance at each table and I’m
sure we’ll still be talking about it in the weeks and years to come! We can thoroughly recommend him to amaze and enthral you!
Derek Sweeney - Wife's Birthday Party
19th May 2018
Damian was great!!!!
We booked Damian to provide entertainment at our wedding for when the photos were being taken and during the afternoon reception. Damian went above and beyond what we could have hoped for, he went round to each table (more than once) to show his tricks up close and personal. His magic tricks were excellent and everybody was amazed!
We had a few technical issues on the day (completely unrelated to Damian) which cause the speeches to be delayed and therefore Damian stayed later than he had originally planned to keep providing entertainment whilst these technical issues were being resolved for which we are very appreciative.
If you are considering a magician for your wedding (or any event) I would highly recommend Gingermagic, you won't regret your decision.
Thanks Damian you helped make the day even better than it already was.
Woah woah woah cool dude!!!! Come back to our table pls
We weren't having any other evening entertainment at our wedding so wanted to break up our 5 course meal with something fun.
I contacted several magicians, but Damian really asked questions to understand more about our wedding so he could advise the best option for us. This made us feel really positive about it as we felt Damian made an effort to understand what would/wouldn't work--we really didn't want it to be awkward!
The magic was really good fun : ) Damian is very talented and I thoroughly enjoyed his show.
It was also perfect for our guests! Not many of them knew each other so it was fantastic to have them share some GingerMagic. It gave them something in common to talk about afterwards.
Damian also improved our selection of photos! We've got some brilliant ones that the photographer took of guests joining in, whether that's standing up with Damian or clapping/reacting to the magic that's taking place before them--they're fantastic.
Damian, thanks so much for sharing our wedding day with us. You were amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed the show!

I surprised all the guests at our wedding (including the groom) with Damian and my husbands words were that Damian was irritating BECAUSE he couldn’t work out what Damian had done! � Damian was a huge success with all the guests! Everyone had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the personal feel of the magic. They said it was fab being able to see the magic close up! Damian is very personable and is great at interacting with people. From before booking to the actual wedding there was good communication and information from Damian. I would definitely recommend booking him to add that extra touch to an event!
You were excellent at my 50th Birthday party. Everyone loved it. Highly recommended Kim �
Total quality...... Thank you Damian for a great performance, this surprise to my husband on his 40th was the best, his face said it all. You truly made his night thanks so much.
We can't thank you enough for making our wedding, one to remember. You were truly AMAZING! Every thing you did from start to finish was BRILLIANT, breath taking. And the extra couple bonding was a great memory, one we will never forget, Thank you. You was fabulous. All our guests loved you and thought you was absolutely Magical, you really were the talking point of the night. The look on our guests faces was truly priceless. Again thank you from the bottom of our hearts we will definitely highly recommend you. Well worth every penny, a few of my guest have already said they need you at their next events lol, all the best Mr & Mrs Mount xxx
Thanks so much for Saturday night- you were a real hit.
I initially chose Damian, a couple of years ago, thanks to a personal recommendation. Since then, we book him because of our previous experience of his magic! He always adds an extra layer of entertainment to our events and the guests really enjoyed it.
Danielle Heath – Company Christmas Party
1st December 2017
Awesome. Damion was amazing. My husband was speechless at his magic. Made the 40th party one to remember.
Two words.........."ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!" ......Thankyou so much Damian for your excellent performance at our wedding on the 19th August 2017, Bere Ferrers. Our guest's even now are still talking about your magic, you had every single one of us mesmerized by your performance. You are professional, entertaining, polite and a testament to the industry, truly exceptional , I cannot recommend you highly enough, simply "magical!" It was a pleasure to meet you and watch you perform, THANKYOU for being part of our special day. Sharon & Malcolm 🥂❤️
Absolutely brilliant, in fact just last night I was telling someone about Ginger Magic and how amazing his performance was - and that was from booking him/seeing him perform over two years ago!
Jaw droppingly awesome! watching him work is the only time I ever doubt what my eyes are seeing. Fantastic magician and a lovely guy
Best close magic ever seen at my brothers party left us all amazed thank you xx
We had a fabulous evening on our Ruby wedding enhanced by the excellent magic from Damien who entertained and astounded our guests round the tables for the evening and we had very positive feedback from all involved thank you so much x
We had a fantastic evening of entertainment and music ... sometimes seeing isn’t believing ... unbelievable ... brilliant.
Fantastic performance, from the booking to the event. What a professional and awe inspired service. I would book Gingermagic again after the incredible success of his performance at my wedding. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, just amazing.
Damian is an excellent magician. One of the best I've ever seen, and a top guy too. Highly recommended.
He's the real deal, I still to this day have no logical explanation for how he performed those tricks!
Best. Magician. Ever.
Was the highlight of of our wedding after the man and wife bit �
I was first left awe struck by the quality of GingerMagic's illusions nearly 20 years ago, even back then he was top of his game and to this day I still have no idea how those crazy tricks were done! He's the real deal, prepare to be left speechless.
He is tip top. Spectacular magic! And a lovely bloke too.
A great magician - a real favourite with everyone! Definitely worth booking if he's available! �
World class performer! Would highly recommend, if your looking for someone who will add something special, then Damien is the perfect magician for you.
Saw Damian fly!! For real! Amazing magician!
Intriguing, entertaining, illuminating - what more could you ask for. Will book again.
A great magician - a real favourite with everyone! Definitely worth booking if he's available!
4th October 2017
We booked Damian to entertain our guests at our recent wedding - everyone was amazed and he was the main topic of conversation for days after as we all tried to figure out how it was done. Young and old alike were left spell-bound by the magic. We would definitely recommend Damian to anyone looking for something a little different to make your event a bit more unique and special! We are certainly very glad we did!
WOW - Awesome, fabulous, breath-taking and mind boggling! ....Damian has amazed and stunned myself and friends on numerous occassions, and I can thoroughly recommend him if you are looking for a unique magician for your special event or celebration. Thanks Damian - you're a superstar!
Damion is terrific, he has everyone spellbound and makes the guests feel at ease while performing his remarkable skills. They will spend hours, days, weeks and years talking about all his tricks.
I hired Gingermagic to impress and entertain guests at the Hauser & Wirth Summer Party.
I had no hesitation in booking Damian because I have hired him before and know that he is outstanding!
As usual, he was Astonishing. I am so mystified. The ice trick is just amazing.
Damian is very easy to work with, really aims to please and he gave the event the edge.
He should be on the telly!
Lisa Pickering - Hauser & Wirth Summer Party
Damian's show at our St Laurence School Year 13 Ball was absolutely superb. The students and staff present were left mesmerised and perplexed by every trick. He is worth every penny and is absolutely brilliant! I can't recommend him highly enough! His ice trick involving a playing card is simply unbelievable and left me completely speechless!
A top man with a top show - so much so we've already booked again for next year!
Thanks again Damian you were MAGIC!
The theme for our play was Love and Magic, so a magician was a great idea for our audience. A Casanova could have proved problematical!
My mother, myself and my daughter are all redheads, so we felt an affinity with Gingermagic!
Unfortunately, Damian was already booked, but he was able to provide an excellent magician to perform in his place. Callum was great with people. Enthusiastic and warm. He added a gloss and sparkle to the evening. Some fun before the main performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Gingermagic met and exceeded my expectations. And as a customer, one cannot ask for better than that. Damian's understanding of our needs and willingness to help really stood out.
Recommended for Corporate events, Weddings and Family parties.
A huge thank you!
Rod Moor-Bardell - Shakespeare Live Magic
Hi Damian, just wanted to say all my guests enjoyed your performance last Friday - you helped make my Retirement Party simply magic.

I wanted to add some extra entertainment to my retirement party.
There are always concerns when booking the 'unknown', but I particularly liked Damian's message on the website.
All of my guests were "wowed" by Damian's entertainment. Simply magical!
And apart from the magic, Damian is very charming and has a lovely manner about him.
I'll definitely be booking again and highly recommend Gingermagic to anyone who is looking for something extra for an event.
Damian, I just wanted to say, all my guests enjoyed your performance last Friday - you helped make my Retirement Party simply magic.
With love & Angel Hugs
Denise Low - Retirement party
Another great performance by Gingermagic and the fabulous Damian Surr,,,young and old were amazed again and all were "blown away" by the sheer magic,the little extras at the conclusion of the show were the icing on the cake,,brilliant!!!
I wanted a magician to add to our wedding experience, and booked Damian due to online research and recommendations.
He was simply Awesome!!
All of our guests still talking about the experience.
The quality and diversity of the tricks was incredible.
Thank you so very very much.
Kevin Whitehead - Wedding
For my daughter's wedding, I wanted to surprise the bride and groom. Having a magician appealed to me as I thought they would enjoy something different.
Damian was recommended to me by the venue. After looking at his website, and speaking to Damian on the phone, I knew he was the right choice.
Then I saw him in action!
Excellent! First class! Unbelievable!
He certainly provided that 'something different'. His magic was completely unfathomable!
My highlight was the pack of cards that disappeared from between our clasped palms!
I encouraged Damian to revisit three large tables of "locals" so he could give out his business cards. I would recommend him to everyone!
Wonderful entertainment. Great value for money.
Gwen Cowan - Daughter's Wedding
Damian was the first to come up on a google search. He also looked nice, according to my girlfriend!
There was an excellent variety of magic. Everyone else was hooked. My nephews (5 and 8) loved the show. The highlight was making my girlfriend's ring disappear and then reappear in the flame of Damian's lighter.
My mother says 'thank you for the magician, he was very good''
I’ll be recommending Gingermagic to friends and family.
Joseph Ireland - Parent’s Birthdays Party
I found Damian randomly while searching in the Somerset area for some pre-dinner entertainment. He got back to me quickly, while he was on holiday, and I really appreciated that. Damian's website and marketing are good and they gave me a sense that he was high quality. As it was my party, I was too distracted to see much of Damian on the day. I did see one trick, and it was Amazing!
All my guests said that Damian was fantastic.
Excellent performance and I will book again.
Saira Zaki - Birthday Party
For our team meeting dinner, I wanted entertainment that was a bit different to the norm. To change things up and to involve everyone. I was lucky enough to meet Damian when he performed at a family birthday meal. I enjoyed him so much, in the dinner setting, that I thought he would be great for my work event.
Damian provided up close magical entertainment that involved everyone. He got us all talking and guessing and really captured people's imaginations. It was a different experience that I hope the team will remember.
We are used to going out as a group for dinner, and having really long waits in between courses; people tend to sit with the same people too. Although people still sat with their buddies, having Damian performing within small groups at the table enabled everyone to get involved and also took our minds off any wait between courses! It definitely improved the atmosphere of the evening, gave everyone some light-hearted relief after a very long day in meetings, and gave everyone a new experience.
People commented on how friendly Damian was and everyone loved all the tricks. No one felt left out. We were impressed by how Damian moved along the table, included everyone and seemed to go above and beyond expectation.
I would recommend Damian to friends - and now work colleagues too. I would recommend him for both intimate family affairs, but also larger groups to do something a bit unusual. We will definitely be booking him again.
Thank you so much Damian. I had so many comments the day after, with people expressing how much they had enjoyed the evening. It was brilliant. We all loved it 🙂
Ali Whitford - Corporate Dinner
A good magician can add a unique special touch to a wedding. He'll keep adult guests amazed and delight younger ones. I always recommend entertainment, during family photos and drinks reception, to bridge the gap between the ceremony and wedding breakfast.
Anne Litchfield - Events Coordinator - Milton Abbey
Damian’s performance was a special treat for my mum’s birthday dinner. The whole family love magic and I wanted something for this special occasion.
I have booked magicians before and the main concern is always how good is this magician, who is unknown to me, going to be? Damian came highly recommended from another magician, so I was quietly confident that he would be good.
The performance was nicely presented in between our 3 course meal. It was cleverly put together, with style and confidence, by a warming and pleasant magician.
The magic added memories that will never be forgotten. Minds were blown and astounded in equal measures.
The parlour show was the icing on the cake and really made the evening special.
The stand out tricks were the card in the ice, the note in the lemon and the disappearing borrowed ring fire magic.
I will be booking Gingermagic again and recommending to everyone! Both corporate and personal.
Damian was the perfect magician, offering amazing close up magic with a friendly warm style. An instantly likeable character and he even took the time to have a social drink with the family after the show.
Jake Whitford - Mum's Birthday party
I wanted to provide entertainment for my husband’s birthday party that would add that Wow factor.
I was very careful in choosing our magician. I decided on Damian because of his website, excellent recommendations and very prompt replies to my enquiries.
Damian’s magic was outstanding! The "tricks" were amazing, without fail. We also loved the participation of our guests. The magic was a talking point for some time after the event.
I have already given Damian’s contact details to a friend who requested them.
Excellent entertainment. We will use Gingermagic again when the opportunity arises.
Damian, we thoroughly enjoyed your magic, as did everyone else.
Janette Longden - Husband’s Birthday Party
We wanted something different for this year’s Christmas party. We haven't had a magician before and were a bit concerned how it would work going around the tables.
Everything went well and was a great success. Feedback has been great. The stand out quality being Damian’s friendliness towards guests.
We will definitely be booking again.
Thanks very much a very good evening was had by all.

Faultless. The booking process, service, performance, responses of my colleagues and value were all outstanding.
Jana De Brabant - Corporate Christmas Party
This was a repeat booking so I knew what to expect from Damian.
A smooth booking process, friendly service, outstanding magic, the staff love him and he's great value for money.
Faultless. And we will be booking again!
Abi Veitch - Corporate Christmas Party
Great reactions from my staff and excellent value for money.
I’ll definitely be booking Damian again.
Maria Franzoni - Corporate Christmas Party
I wish I had videoed everything you did. Just absolutely speechless and I usually get how things are done. Things are physically done to yourself and I just cannot believe them. Would recommend you a million times!!!!
Lou Blewett - Corporate Christmas Party
Gingermagic was honestly incredible last night! I was genuinely lost for words. What a talent!
Rhys McGrath - Corporate Christmas Party
We just wanted to say on behalf of the Firm, thank you so much for entertaining us all at our Christmas Party!
All we keep hearing in the office today is about how wonderful you were and how amazed everyone was! Your magic will certainly not be forgotten.
You were amazing!
Thank you for also judging the “dance-off” 🙂
Have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Rebecca Antill - Corporate Christmas Party
(Taken from this blog post)
In addition to hosting the party, Mr and Mrs Dentist took on the catering and also booked Damian Surr, a ‘close up’ magician, as a surprise.
Damian’s close-up magic was amazing and none of us could figure out how he did it, no matter how beadily we followed with our eyes.
A few moments from his routine really stand out in the memory. There was one moment where he gave Rebecca a pack of cards and asked her to hold it tightly between her palms. When Rebecca opened her grip the carefully clutched cards had somehow been transformed into a block of perspex!
Lorna was asked to sign a card which vanished from the pack only to later be recovered from deep within a block of ice!
Ashley’s children were amazed when he invited them to take one of his A5 leaflets from his wallet. With a flick, the leaflet apparently turned into cash- a bundle of £20 notes – with a flick he turned it back into a leaflet again and returned it to his wallet.
If you ever find yourself looking for something similar – Damian Surr is the artist and can be found working as Ginger Magic – we can assure you he comes highly recommended!

Cathy Davenport - Corporate Christmas Party
After seeing Damian’s YouTube videos, I had no hesitation in booking him. I was looking for something different, found Damian with a google search, and never looked back.
Fantastic magic, all the guests were delighted. Damian added a different element to the party. It meant that those that chose not to dance, and congregate in the hall, were still being entertained. Damian was friendly and everyone was at ease with him.
The wow trick for me was the card in the ice block. Incredible!
I’ll definitely be booking again and recommending to all friends and colleagues.
Gary Williams - Birthday Party
The idea kept coming up to have a magician at this year’s Head Teacher Conference.
I chose Damian because I liked the Gingermagic website and enjoyed our conversations about the conference. They provoked challenge and thought. It was clear during the preparation that my delegates were going to genuinely get a quality event. I liked Damian when we spoke and I try to only book people I can work with.
Price was the major concern as Damian’s fee was more expensive than other speakers. However, I did feel that the value he added to the conference was worth it.
The reaction to Damian’s talk was brilliant. I came in to watch the trick being delivered by the teams and everyone was having a blast. I can't ask for more than that from a group of stressed and overworked Headteachers.
Damian's ability to instruct was clear and Held (capital H) the room. Everyone genuinely wanted to learn so it was good for me as well, rather than some "fluffy" stuff they could switch off from.
The talk took everyone out of their comfort zone and made them focus and work together. Ideal for this event, perfect for corporate team building and also for colleagues getting to know each other in a more relaxed way..
I’ve already booked Damian for our next conference!
Damian, I’m not sure you realised how vital the session was. I was really not sure how it would go but am thrilled at the reaction I saw.
Colin McIntosh - Corporate Conference
I wanted a magician that could entertain adults and make them wonder, “how did he do that?”, even up close. I found Damian online and watched his videos. I couldn’t see the tricks but the effect they had on his audience suited my purpose. He also looked like a nice person.
It was easy to book and even alternative magicians were offered. The price was reasonable and the communication was very friendly.
Damian’s performance was excellent! I know where to come for future events. The entertainment was personal and kept people’s attention, which was just what I wanted.
We also chose to end Damian’s performance with a couple of his extras. They left us wondering “how!” And the cards that fused together really made my wife’s evening.
Highly recommended to anybody having a party. Easy to deal with, fantastic entertainment and great value for money.
Damian, I think that you have thought through every stage and I can’t think of any way to improve on the overall package. You were even better than I thought you would be. And we did manage to close Callum’s mouth, eventually!
Thank you so much you were terrific. See you again.
Eric Russell - Birthday Party
I love magic and met Damian at a friend’s wedding last year. I had to book him for my wedding! He created a great atmosphere and brought everyone together. He’s entertaining and enigmatic. Highly recommended to anyone and everyone!
Wendy Stock - Wedding
We wanted something different for this special occasion. I searched on google and Damian’s information made me feel “I need to book this guy!”
The magic was excellent. Relaxed, friendly and just amazing!!
Everyone had smiles on their faces and Damian’s magic made it a more special occasion. I loved the relaxed informal way the afternoon panned out. Very professional throughout!
We also chose a couple of Damian’s extras to finish off his performance. The special trick with the cards got everyone up and together. Derek loved it! The champagne trick was a great way to end the magic!
Overall, Gingermagic is ideal for anyone who wants a WOW during their special event. I have already recommended Damian to several people who have special dates and events on the horizon.
Thanks again for helping the anniversary party be so memorable!
Roger Salt - Wedding Anniversary
I had no hesitation in booking Damian for our Wedding Anniversary, as I’ve seen him at work before. He is a pure magician!
Damian inter-acted amazingly with our guests. He was attentive to their reactions to his magic and was extremely charming throughout his performance.
The entertainment was absolutely brilliant. Pure magic. I defy anyone to say otherwise. Real value for money!
Damian added magical entertainment that my guests spoke about after the event, and will continue to talk about for months to come! Pure professionalism from the moment of arrival to the moment of departure. We were sorry to see him go.
We've used Gingermagic before and will do so again. As far as I'm concerned, there is no one better!
Beverley Sessions - Wedding Anniversary
Many thanks for the fantastic entertainment you provided for all our guests on Saturday to celebrate my daughter's 21st. Many people have told me it's the best party they have been to helped enormously by your tremendous skill. My daughter tells me that the hot topic of conversation at University is how on earth you did it! So many many thanks for helping the evening get off to a great start and stunning all our guests - it's greatly appreciated.
I will certainly be calling on your service again.
Anonymous - Birthday Party
Before booking a magician, I was a little concerned about how good they would be and whether guests would enjoy it. My Dad likes magic and it was his birthday. I wanted some entertainment, but something a bit different.
I chose Gingermagic because it seemed to be the type of magic that I thought my Dad would like. Also, I just got a good 'feeling' after chatting to Damian over the phone. I know it was going to be good.
It was Amazing!! Damian provided a conversation point for guests that didn't know each other. His show at the end was fun as well as mind boggling! I liked the way Damian interacted with the banter from the guests. I've had loads of emails from them saying how good he was. Damian was also the talking point at work as I told my colleagues about the magic.
I remember the excitement, laughter, fun and Damian’s interactions with the guests (not just the magic). He made the event that little more special.
And the lemon trick!! How on earth?
The ‘couple bonding’ trick was brilliant and gave both my parents a moment of the day.
Damian, I just wanted to say a big thank you once again for Saturday. My Dad absolutely loved it and all the guests were amazed! I have already passed on your details to those who have asked.
James Bolton - Birthday Party
We wanted my son’s 50th to start off with something different. We thought that magic would add a little extra to party.
I liked the look of Damian on line and found talking to him most encouraging. He felt like the right person for the job.
I was obviously a little concerned as I had not see Damian perform before. I was not sure how he would be received.
As soon as I saw Damian with the guests, I knew I had made the right choice. He was very very good! Everyone thought he was great and could not see how the magic was done. The interaction kept the guests busy. I liked the quiet way Damian passed around the guests with out being intrusive. He’s a very clever nice young man. Every one said how much they enjoyed him. Damian added that extra special touch to the party.
My son very much enjoyed the ice trick. My grandson and his friend just followed Damian around trying to see how it was done!
Highly recommended to anyone having a party. Great value for money. Will book again.
Damian, thank you for fitting us in yesterday. You really helped the party go with a swing!
Jean Dalrymple - Birthday Party
We've had a good variety of entertainment at previous fetes, but never a magician. I chose Damian because the quality of the Gingermagic website and his fantastic reviews.
Pre-performance communication was absolutely brilliant and almost instantaneous!
At the fete, Damian was attention-catching, intriguing and mystifying. Definitely a talking point. The feedback I have had has been very good. Some people wish they'd made an effort to search Damian out after hearing others talk.
Sue Watford - Fete
I wanted to add some fun to my birthday party. To choose a magician, I read people’s feedback and followed my intuition. Damian was the right choice.
That said, it’s always strange when booking a service online. Would he be any good? Would he even turn up, given that I paid him upfront?
Needless to say, Damian delivered. He was absolutely fantastic. Sometimes there were 10 people studying every move and still everyone was befuddled. Very friendly, very professional, very accommodating. Really just excellent all round.
He added fun, created many conversations, amazed people, and just added a wow factor.
The magician and the magic were first class! I honestly can’t think of anything that could have been better about the whole service.
I’d recommend Damian to anyone who can afford him! 🙂
If you are looking for a magician look no further. Gingermagic are really the business!
Damian, thank you for a great evening. Everyone loved you and the village is still talking about the tricks! A lovely and exciting time with a really nice and accommodating guy. Thank you.
Andy Barrs - Birthday Party
We asked Damian to entertain our guests during our wedding. It's always a concern when you haven't used a service before but that didn't matter in the end.
Gingermagic popped up in a search engine and had a very professional / easy website. I was then impressed by the sheer professionalism of Damian, with an extremely prompt and thorough response the same evening. I think with something like magic, where it's a small or single person company, you don't expect a quick response or anything, but this was really top draw. We never had to worry about Damian arriving on the day or letting us know about anything.
In person, he was just as good. And the magic was absolutely fantastic, everyone loved it.
Damian broke the ice post ceremony and gave people something to talk about. He also kept them very entertained for a couple of hours! The highlight for me was the signed card appearing in a block of ice!
Brilliant from start to finish and great value for money.
Damian, you were fantastic and a major contributor to the joy at our wedding. Thank you 🙂
Abi Cabot - Wedding
We booked Damian because of the recommendation from the venue. Budget and personality were my concerns. Never having employed the services of a magician, I didn't know the going rate for a good one. Also, how do you know if the magician will be a good personality fit with your guests? I had no idea what to expect.
I needn’t have worried. The Gingermagic service was very reassuring.
On the day, Damian became a great talking point. He added a huge amount of entertainment, even to the most cynical! He was just right for our crowd. Quiet, confident and quite gob smackingly clever!!
We thought it was real magic! Brilliant.
Highly recommended for wedding parties. Perfect for when guests are at a loose end.
Emma Keane - Wedding
Thank you again for last night – the kids and adults thought you were great!
Can we book you for next year? How do I secure the booking?
Will Penny - School Prom
Thank you very much indeed for your brilliant performance on Sunday. Everybody thought that you were fantastic, myself included, and you certainly helped the party go with a swing!
Thank you again. We very much appreciate your efforts. You were absolutely tremendous.
Charles Byam-Cook - Private party
For my birthday celebration, I wanted something unusual, special, memorable and informal. A magician ticked all of those boxes. However, prices do vary. It’s hard to evaluate the endorsements online. So how do you choose?
For me, it was the Magician of the year awards that convinced me that Damian was the right choice. Also, his quick and personal response to my inquiry.
Damian was adaptable, always smiling and easily slipped into the informal and unannounced role. Convincing, friendly and professional.
I’ll be booking Damian again, and also recommending him to the lawyers at the party who have regular dinners in London.
Wonderful performance, low key, exactly what I wanted.
Terry Gifford - Birthday party
I wanted to book Damian for my 50th birthday party. Unfortunately, his price was just a stretch too far for my budget. However, Damian was able to offer me one of his ‘apprentices’ for a lower price. I wasn't sure what you get for your money, or the quality, but Damian very quickly put me at ease.
Owen arrived in good time and was fantastic! Very confident, very good magic, and his twist of humour added to the flavour of his performance.
My guests were not expecting any magic so it was a surprise and it helped create an interest around the room. Each group getting there own show. Everyone loved Owen and wanted to know where I got him from!
Damian, your service was second to none and I would highly recommend you. The magic was great and the tricks got more intriguing as the evening went on.
Thanks for making my celebration a special one.
Darcy Weafer-Cook - Birthday Party
The best magic I’ve ever seen live is the closeup work of Damian Surr. I’ve seen him a couple of times and his magic always recalibrates my eyebrows.
I was stood in a small group once, in a high-ceilinged hotel ballroom and Damian was doing a bit of card trickery. He had the guy next to me sign a card and put it back into the pack.
We’re all staring intently at the stack of cards between Damian’s nimble fingers, alert for any trickery, when he invites us to look to the heavens.
And right there, about ten feet above our heads, squarely attached to the ceiling and facing downwards, is the signed card we’d been trying to keep track of.
I have literally no idea how he pulled it off.
Mark Creaser - Corporate event
We had never held this type of event before and I wanted it to have something very different. My main concern was that the cost of the magic was quite high and I questioned if it would be good value for money. My concerns were completely unfounded though!
Damian was outstanding! He mingled with our guests effortlessly and was polite, professional and most importantly an excellent magician.
Having Damian there became a focal point for the day, and indeed the next few days as staff talked about the magic at work!
Everything from initial inquiry response, through to the performance was excellent. Great value for money.
Damian, thank you for making our first ever 'Fairway Funday' such a huge success.
Andrew Shirley - Company Fun Day
To suit our fete environment, we wanted a roaming magician who would be entertaining but totally informal. We needed entertainment suitable for all ages, while also having the 'wow' factor. Something that most guests would not have previously experienced.
We were slightly concerned as it is a costly booking to make for an event with all the 'unknowns' involved. We had to trust the YouTube videos and reviews.
We need not of worried at all. You were just brilliant Damian!
Having you there added a whole extra element to the fete. When guests weren't playing any games they were still being entertained in a totally different way. Guests were laughing but bewildered and felt they had seen/experienced something new and amazing. It made the event more special to them all. You mingled well among the guests with an easy-going manner. And the tricks were spot-on.
Guests are still talking about it all now and will continue to do so no doubt. Baffled adults who thought they would be able to work out how the magic was done but just couldn't! Kids were amazed too.
I will be recommending you to contacts in other businesses and to friends for weddings.
Thanks again. I just wish I had seen all the tricks you did! I keep hearing about more of the ones that I missed! So, we need to book you again and I’ll enjoy just being entertained next time rather than moving around the guests and organizing things!
Jane Hodgetts - Staff Fun Day
We wanted a Magician to mix with guests, but not be intrusive. The magic was a present to our son, to add an extra special touch to his wedding.
Damian's reviews were very good, and we were also drawn to the 'ginger' part, as we have several ginger members of family.
I'd describe Damian as Professional, Friendly, Exciting and Amazing! He provided a lot of pleasure for everyone and a talking point afterwards. Everyone commented on how excellent Damian was. We all have some magical memories to take away with us.
The extra 'bonding item' we opted for was exceptional! It brought all the guests together to witness the special magic provided for Daniel and Helen.
Thank you so much Damian.
Debbie Rawson - Son's wedding
This is the third time that we have booked Gingermagic for our client. They love Damian and the whole Gingermagic service.
Unfortunately, Damian was already booked when we got in touch with him. Thankfully, Damian has some of the best magicians in the country on his books. He provided two of his outstanding 'Gingermagic magicians' to entertain throughout our client's dinner.
We were not in the room all the time so didn't have a chance to participate. However, Grant very kindly did some card tricks for us after his official finishing time which was greatly appreciated and enjoyed! Thanks Grant.
And thanks Damian. You know we will be using you again!
Alison Habbijam - Events Organiser
I was after some crowd entertainment to break the ice for groups at my wedding. I didn't want to have an embarrassingly bad "child birthday party" magician!
The video's on the Gingermagic website helped us to choose Damian. Particularly the video of the upset people who didn't book Gingermagic. We found them hilarious and really identified with them as a good way to portray how different he is from other magicians.
On the wedding day, I was so busy I didn't really get to see much magic, but what I did see was just stunning - shock factor and amazement from myself and my guests.
Damian broke the ice and helped people who didn't know each other start talking. He also helped me to spend time with more people, as I kept ending conversations by telling guests to go and find the magician, because he is amazing!
The service highlights were the friendliness of the inquiry process and the ease and confidence I had with making the booking. Also the subtle way that Damian mingled with the crowd and announced himself on arrival.
As for the magic, the card in the ice was – stunning – the shocked faces were a picture!
I would have no reservations about recommending Gingermagic. Thank you!
Sacha Swift-Smith - Wedding
Having previously seen a magician at a wedding, we felt it was a great idea to help create memorable moments. Also to encourage guests to interact.
Damian was at the top end of our budget. We received great communication and he was very friendly to deal with. However, it was his rave reviews that persuaded us to book. And we are so glad that we did!
Damian’s interaction with our guests was great. Everyone wants to know HOW he did the magic! Guests are still talking about the tricks he performed.
Seamless, fun and truly magic!
A huge thank you!
Gemma Bush - Wedding
We wanted entertainment for guests of various ages. A magician seemed a good bet to engage everyone.
In choosing Damian, we we relied on the excellent reviews as we hadn't seen the performance before. He provided a good service in the lead up to the wedding and a punctual arrival with no fuss whatsoever. I was instantly reassured that Damian would get on with it without needing anything from us.
The magic was Superb! Damian was patient with everyone, socially perceptive with guests and a really really good magician. His fantastic entertainment meant that there was always something interesting going on as people were mingling or waiting to be served.
Emma Reynolds - Wedding
For my Birthday, I wanted something that I knew my guests hadn't seen before. I'd never seen a close up magician myself, so didn't really know what to expect.
Damian was very quick in responding to my enquiry and our communication made me feel that I was in safe hands. I was relieved that he was available on the date and then reading the excellent reviews on the Gingermagic website convinced me that he was the right choice.
The performance was simply Mind blowing! All my guests were thoroughly amazed and are still talking about it.
Wonderful. Damian was great value for the money.
For the end of Damian’s time with us, I chose one of his ‘optional extras’. The champagne toast was a lovely end to the entertainment and brought everyone together.
I’ll recommend Damian to everyone who wants an outstanding evening of entertainment. And I’ll definitely be booking him again myself!
Sue Gray - Birthday Party
We were looking for that little extra "something" to make our party one to remember.
Neither of us had any concerns regarding booking Damian, as we had seen him before. His ease with people, and his general demeanour was one which we thought would fit well into the kind of party we wanted.
We also liked the prompt replies to our e-mails and calls, and the choices offered.
Damian is unobtrusive, slick, mystifying and very professional. All of the magic worked perfectly, albeit at very close quarters. Even those who thought they were "experts" remained totally perplexed! He left everyone wanting more.
It was also good to see that Damian was enjoying himself along with the rest of us!
We have had a lot of very complimentary feedback and several friends have asked us for Gingermagic's contact details.
Damian is perfect for anyone who wants to add an extra dimension to a function or event. Anyone who is looking for an unexpected "wow" factor to spark their party.
We honestly can’t think of anything we could suggest to improve the excellent Gingermagic service.
We enjoyed our dealings with Damian. We enjoyed his performance and professional yet friendly approach and we very much hope to see him again. We send all good wishes for the future.
Michael Kelly - Golden Wedding Anniversary
Last year we used The Three Waiters for our party and they were good, so this year I wanted something different and a Magician seemed a good idea.
I googled top Magician and Gingermagic came up, as he had won The Best Magician Award in Europe.
My only worry was that a Magician would not have enough time to go around twenty one tables of ten in three hours. Damian was clever as he made a plan of the tables and crossed them off when he had been to each one.
Damian was cool and calculated. He was smartly dressed, talked well and had very quick actions. Everyone loved his tricks and the whole party got going very quickly as Damian was so inspiring.
Some of our guests thought that they would catch Damian out. They didn’t stand a chance!!
I’d recommend Damian for any sort of party as he would mix with anyone, anywhere.
Thanks Damian. You were a sensation!
Sarah Hobbs - Jockey Championship Celebration
You were very good thank you Damian
AP McCoy (Sir Tony McCoy) - Jockey Championship Celebration
I just wanted to say a big thank you for your genius skills that added a special extra to our special day.
Everyone really enjoyed your performance and thank you especially for making my skeptical brother become open mouthed when you did the vanishing pack of cards from his hands. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Don't know how you do it.......must be magic!
Lynne Fodor - Husband's Birthday Party
I thought a magician would complement the live band, and provide entertainment during the buffet. I was concerned if the quality of the performance would be acceptable. It's not the sort of thing you can have a second chance at!
Damian was Outstanding! He had a professional approach throughout. He was very friendly to deal with. And he left our guests spellbound.
To be honest, before Damian started, I didn't know quite what to expect. He was absolutely incredible. Everyone was so impressed.
Dave Skelton - Birthday party
We live magic! From our own experiences, the time between the ceremony and food can be a boring part of any wedding. We didn't want that for our guests.
We met Damian last year and the quality of the magic we saw was what made us to justify the cost.
Damian was great at our wedding. Everyone was so impressed. He made our guests feel comfortable and eager to watch more.
Kirsty Michaels - Wedding
I always said that I was going to have a magician at my 70th birthday party. And I only wanted the best. Damian has a very good website, and I have got many gingers in my family, so I just had to have him!
It was everything I’d hoped for. Extraordinary! To be so close up and just not comprehend how the trick is done is so annoying and brilliant. It has been a talking point ever since.
Damian improved my celebration vastly. He turned a jolly birthday lunch into something very special. The word around the room was “he's bloomin good isn't he?” Even the venue proprietors were very interested to note just how much the event was enhanced.
I need to know how Damian does the rubber band trick! This and many others were just so clever and quite outstanding.
I’d heartily recommend Damian to anyone who wants to raise a fairly ordinary function into something that people will never forget.
Thank you, Damian, you made my day.
Robin Quartley - Birthday party
I was looking for a modern style of entertainment for my Mum’s Wedding. I wanted to give our guests a break from the usual wedding formality. My internet research led me to choose Gingermagic and it was a great choice!
Damian’s general movement and tricks around the drinks reception were very good. The magic was even better at the tables during the Wedding breakfast! The trick with the ice was incredible.
Timing the performance was a concern. There was no need to worry though. Damian was keen that each table got involved before he left, so he gave us some extra time at the end.
I will definitely use Gingermagic in the future and will be recommending Damian to friends family and clients.
Great magic, great service and great value for money.
James Salmon - Mum’s Wedding
Damian was great. The guests are still talking about him and will remember my party because there was a magician there. He is also a very nice bloke in himself and came to talk to people after the performance. Very glad we booked him and would recommend him to others. Just Perfect!
Sally Marine - Birthday Party
I chose Damian because of the good reviews on his website.
His magic was a great way to break the ice with our guests. Fun, exciting, perplexing.
The stand out trick for my was the 'Slow motion jump'.
Several people text me the following day saying how much they enjoyed the magic.
The magical toast addition was lovely, as it was a 21st birthday.
I'll be recommending Damian to anyone who wants an entertainer.
Margaret Lewis - Birthday Party
We wanted something special to entertain our target market guests and promote our company name. Gingermagic was easy to find on internet and had a good website.
The close up style of the tricks was very impressive. Damian left guests bewildered as to how they were done.
I'll be recommending Damian to my business contacts.
Nigel Gravett - Business Dinner
This is the third time we have booked Damian & we love him!
He has that definite wow factor & guests talk about him for days and weeks afterwards!
Damian adds another dimension to the party and is a great ice breaker. Guests feel involved & it gives them something to talk about with people they may not know.
As for his magic, it's simply Amazing, Fantastic & Mind blowing!
Damian is a total professional who leaves people awe struck! The whole Gingermagic service is outstanding!
A huge thank you again for a fabulous performance and for being a highlight of the evening! Once more you wowed the crowd and everyone is still talking about you!!
Looking forward to the next time!
Sue Graham - Birthday Party
I wanted something different and fun to entertain the guests at my husband's birthday party. Something to make the event that extra bit special!
A google search brought up Damian's website. His reviews were good, he was local and available! I had no concerns booking Damian because there were so many video clips and testimonials on the website.
Great communication from the moment I enquired through to the event. It was great that Damian followed the enquiry up with a phone call - so much is done online/email these days, it was nice and reassuring just to talk things through with him.
The magic on the night was Amazing! Everyone was astonished and couldn't give enough praise.
Damian gave the party a real buzz! As we had lots of groups of friends in one place - work, old school friends, family, friends through our children etc it was a really nice way to get people talking to each other. Either looking over Damian's shoulder or sharing their views of amazement immediately after the trick.
All the tricks were amazing, particularly where Damian added extra layers to the magic - such as the signed card in the ice, and setting fire to the paper to return the ring!
I will be recommending Damian to all friends and family in the local area. Some even asked me on the night how I booked him and where they could find his details!
Damian certainly isn't the cheapest option around, but his entertainment is outstanding. Exactly what I wanted for our guests.
Louise Slade - Birthday Party
Because I am not an expert on magicians I had not really given much thought to the performance. To be perfectly honest, my wife went on the internet and looked for someone well turned out with a good web site and demo video.
Damian was really very good. All the staff thought the entertainment was tremendous.
My experience of company parties is dire. I only attended this one because I organised it.
In order of merit: Magician, Food, Company, Wine, Host!
I'll definitely be booking Damian again.
Chris Davis - Corporate Christmas Party
Great enquiry process
Very friendly of service
Top Quality performance
Dream reactions from the staff
Excellent value for money
Anonymous - Corporate Christmas Party
My main concern before booking Damian was knowing whether the money invested was worth the time you get. It was!
I trusted the personal recommendation I received from my colleague and Damian lived up to his reputation.
Pure magic! Great skill, and all done in such a subtle way.
I'll now be the one recommending Damian to friends and colleagues.
Sarah Ballinger - Corporate Christmas Party
We wanted to do something different for this year's Christmas meal. Damian was more expensive than our normal outlay so I was concerned about whether it would be value for money. I spoke to Damian and he sounded very confident that he could provide just what we wanted. He didn't disappoint!
It was wonderful. The feedback has been fantastic - certainly the best party we've organised. Damian was just so comfortable with everyone. Slick and competent.
The only downside was hearing people wish that they could have seen more.
It was an adventure for us and hopefully we will be able to repeat it soon.
Damian, last night was fantastic. Thank you so much. I hope you and the family have a wonderful Christmas.
Carol Debell - Christmas Party
I chose Damian for our Christmas party because of my previous experience of him. We hired him to perform for my mum's birthday party a couple of years ago.
My staff were interested and intrigued. I heard lots of Amazed reactions from them. The stand out trick for me was the one with the ice!
I'll definitely be using Gingermagic again!
Jenny Kingston - Corporate Christmas Party
I saw a magician perform on TV at a party and thought I would like to do something like that for my 40th birthday.
I found the Gingermagic website very good. Full of useful information. Then a quick chat over the phone with Damian gave me a clearer idea of what to expect.
Having only seen Damian on line, you never know for sure how what you are getting. All I can say is what all of my friends have said, “Wow, Amazing!”. Simply magical. He certainly improved the event. In the days after my party, people talked about how wonderful the magic was.
I'd recommend Damian for any event! Top top draw.
I would like to say a big thank you to Damian for making my birthday bash for my friends so memorable. I cannot say enough about how much they all enjoyed it. Fantastic entertainment.
Mark Lee - Birthday Party
As an agent, the acts I can book always comes down to the clients budget. My client wanted to add something different to their drinks reception and luckily Damian was available and within budget.
It was great to see Damian in action. Easy going, professional and very good. What more would you want? He added a special element to the reception.
I was impressed by the money trick that Damian showed me before the guests arrived. I was please to have sampled what the guests would be seeing!
We'll definitely be using you again Damian. You made a great impression and you'll be perfect for my corporate clients.
Pili Lopez - Agent Event
My reason for wanting a magician was to add a special piece of entertainment to my husband's birthday masked ball.
Before booking anyone, I was concerned about the quality of a performer without having a personal recommendation. Instead, I trusted customer testimonials. Damian's customer reviews really stood out, as did the quality of the whole website.
On the night, Damian was absolutely outstanding! A great talking point and he added to the excitement of the evening. His interaction with all our guests was fantastic.
Outstanding magic, great attention to detail and very good value for money.
Damian, thank you for your wonderful entertainment. People are still raving about you!
Marion Dethier - Husband's Birthday party
We thoroughly enjoyed your close-up magic and you left us all stunned and amazed as to how you did it. Delegates of the event are still talking about it now!
We will definitely be booking you for any future events, you were the highlight of our evening. It was a pleasure dealing with you from start to finish and wish you every success going forward.
Tim was also incredible, people are also approaching me telling me how much they loved his performance.
You were both fantastic and helped make our event a fabulous and memorable day/night.
Best wishes & see you soon 🙂
Amy Tomlinson - Corporate Event
My brother booked Damian as our wedding present. He wanted to provide something memorable and to help keep the afternoon fun for all.
All I can say is WOW. Damian is so talented! Everyone absolutely loved him and couldn't get enough. We were all blown away by the magic. Damian ensured everyone got involved and worked the room brilliantly. Outstanding magic and great personality.
I also loved that although I only advised on the day of wedding, at 4am, that the timings of the day were earlier than planned, I was told “No problem” (I know that it must have been a pain, however I appreciated the 'no bother' response).
My favourite tricks were the card in ice, and ring of fire, but all were brilliantly delivered.
The last trick, for me and Mike, was crazy! I love having something personal to keep to remember the magic.
Thank you for making our day memorable and the best day ever.
Catriona Amey - Wedding
We wanted to do something different and saw a magician at a recent wedding. We thought magic would be a great addition to our event. We found Damian online, checked the website and reviews on his performance. All feedback was really positive so we went with him.
I could not actually fault anything. From pre booking, communication leading up to the event, liaison with the venue and everything on the actual night. Absolutely first class service.
At the dinner Damian visited all of the tables twice, in addition to his pre-dinner entertainment. The varied tricks were excellent and even up close the guests were mesmerised.
I was very impressed just how easily Damian fitted in and how well the guests responded to him.
My favourite bits were at our table. The card ending up in the ice, and the trick with my wife's ring were both brilliant.
We’ll definitely be booking Damian again, and I’ve already been thinking of people to recommend him to.
Fun, entertaining, value for money and helped to make a special evening.
Brian Dudley - Charity Dinner
The birthday girl's husband passed away four years ago, he loved magic.
We met Damian a couple of years ago, so booking him was an easy decision.
The performance was fantastic, just brilliant. Everyone, loved it! Thank you!
We also added the magical toast option, which was lovely. A great way to end the performance.
Mum had a great birthday. We are all still talking about the magic......
We would definitely recommend Ginger Magic.
Jason Wilton - Birthday party
Damian's performance at my birthday party was simply excellent!
Great service, very friendly and I couldn't have asked for better reactions from my guests.
Fiorinda Masters - Birthday Party
Just wanted to thank u so much for yesterday. Me and Benj had the most perfect wedding day. U were fantastic and our guests absolutely loved u. Happily recommend u and use u again. Amazing !!!!
Thank u so much !!!!!! Very happy customer !!!!
Michelle Miller - Wedding
I wanted a magician to add entertainment value and as a way of bringing together guests who didn't know each other. I wanted to make the party different and more memorable for us and our guests.
We had been let down at very short notice (2 days to go) by another magician who had been recommended by a friend. In a last minute panic, I found the Gingermagic website and really liked what I saw. I had looked at some other magicians sites and felt they were a bit too smooth and smarmy.
Damian was just right! His performance was great. I really liked how he just got on with it, mingling with our guests and wowing them with his magic. He gave a shared experience for our guests. His magic acted as a way of bringing people together and breaking the ice. It was great seeing and hearing peoples amazement and bafflement at the magic being performed in front of their eyes. I was most impressed by the easy way with which he mingled with guests and wowed them in an unassuming manner.
We hired Damian for a 60th birthday party. People of all ages, from 5yrs to 80yrs, thought he was fab. So I'd recommend him for parties, weddings, any situations where you were wanting an element of surprise or wanting to break the ice.
Damian was incredibly flexible on the short notice. His email communications were timely, he was on time and very approachable. Lovely guy.
A big thank-you.
Anne Harrison - 60th Birthday party
We wanted to bring some additional entertainment to a formal evening - to lighten the atmosphere a little without it diluting from the aim of raising some funds for a charity.
This was our first time booking a magician so we were worried about quality etc, or how to find a suitable performer. The Gingermagic website was perfect in providing the tools we needed. After our initial enquiry, we found out that Damian was already booked in the time slot that we wanted. However, he offered to provide us with an alternate performer and gave us confidence that we would not be let down on the night.
A young magician called Callum entertained us and he punched above his weight. He was a delightful chap and did really well working the room with some very good close up magic. He won over lots of good old cynics and oohs and aaghs trailed him in his wake as he moved between tables. He pitched it really well with everyone he met, all of whom were one, if not two generations his senior.
Well done GingerMagic; well done Callum, we expect to see your name up there with the big names in the future - keep going and good luck!
Toby Lapage-Norris - Charity Dinner
Just to say thanks for the magic on Friday night. Everyone has said they thought it was absolutely fantastic - a real success.
James Caddy - Birthday Party
SKILL SKILL SKILL ! SLICK PERFORMER with a delightful manner.
Before booking, I was impressed by watching Damian's sample video's, excellent communication and most of all reading the recommendations of other clients.
Wonderful decision to engage this act. Not inexpensive but I do not know anyone else who could perform these amazing tricks. I know of rubbish barristers who charge more per hour and I would certainly not recommend them to represent my friends ! Gingermagic is brilliant 🙂
Kirsten Musgrave - Wedding
We booked Damian 2 years ago for our daughters 21st and were so impressed with him so booked him again!!
Damian is perfect for adding something a little different to the evening and some fun too!
An amazing performer! Totally professional and definitely has the wow factor! His magic added another dimension to the evening and gave guests who didn't know each other something to talk about!
We also added one of the optional extras, which was a great way of doing a toast with everyone!
I can't think of anything I would change!
Totally brilliant, as expected !! Everyone was wowed!
I'd just like to add a massive thank you! Outstanding service all round from start to finish!
Sue Graham - Birthday party
I saw a different magician at a wedding fair and thought it would be a good idea for the drinks reception. I did some research online and found Gingermagic. I was a little apprehensive before booking a magician, but Damian met up with my daughter and partner. He gave a demo, which was excellent, so no concerns after that.
On the day, the performance was outstanding. Damian went over and above what was discussed. We also made some small changes to the timings, which Damian took in his stride. Very professional.
It was a great way of getting people together, with something very different. Especially during the photography session, when a lot of the family are required to be present, leaving the guests unattended.
I highly recommend Damian to anyone who needs something different at an event. Really good for weddings. Really good for any social gathering.
Massive thank you. A great success
Val Dixon - Wedding
Your performance on the day was, in a word, Fantastic. Lots have people have come up to me after the wedding to say how much they enjoyed it and pretty much all of them have mentioned you and how good you were! A card appearing in a block of ice and a pack of cards disappearing in someone's hand seem to have been particularly memorable!
Sharon and I thought your professionalism on the day was absolutely spot on. You were very friendly and easy going, perfectly patient with all the speeches and other things going on and happy to fit your act around them, and you seemed to get round everyone more than once so we got good value for money! We were also touched by the way you pitched your magic for the kids too - they absolutely loved it.
Thank you very much for helping to make our day so successful. We will certainly be recommending you to other people.
All the best
Will Napper - Wedding
Just wanted to say a massive heartfelt thank you for attending our wedding in August!! You were absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend you! Absolutely blew my mind! We are all still talking about it now - trying to figure it all out!
Thanks again, Mr and Mrs Walker xx
Rachel Walker - Wedding
I wanted a magician to entertain a large family gathering. Responsiveness to my online enquiry was very good, but unfortunately Damian was not available on the date I had arranged.
We were offered an alternate Gingermagic magician. I was concerned if a replacement performer would live up to my expectations and be value for money. I needn't have worried. Damian arranged for Gary to entertain us and he provided an excellent performance. Really good interaction with the group of 33 people aged from 4 to 82. He kept everyone entranced throughout. Good dialogue coupled with excellent magic!
Gary arrived early and entertained beyond the allotted 45 minutes. He provided a very entertaining hour for the group.
Thanks to Damian for providing a great magician and to Gary for his excellent performance.
James Harris - Birthday party
I will definitely be booking Damian again and have already been recommending him to people.
Great service, outstanding performance, priceless memories.
And I'm so grateful to Cait for emailing me details of the extra couple bonding trick. That made the end of the event very special.
John Dickson - Wedding
I found Damian at a wedding fair at the Webbington hotel and had to book him!
He is absolutely brilliant. In the old days he would have been burnt at the stake. I recommend him strongly for any event. Amazing 🙂
Thank you very much Damian. Everyone loved you and you made our wedding day special.
Mr and Mrs Restall - Wedding
I wanted to animate a 90th birthday lunch party for my mother.
I have seen Damian perform before, as well as other magicians, and he is the best I've seen. The event was quite an outlay for us but we wanted an added element and Damian was ideal. Most of the guests had never seen up close magic before and were enthralled.
Suitable for all ages, Damian's magic cuts across generations. Fun, unexpected, and animating - just what we needed.
I thought the trick with the ice was astounding. My cousin who is always sceptical was enthralled.
Thanks Damian it was fabulous.
Annie Murch - Birthday party
I wanted to provide entertainment while our guests were enjoying the birthday celebration. I chose Gingermagic because of the quality of the exciting entertainment on offer from viewing the videos on the website.
The magic was performed with the participation of our guests and Damian was very skilled at involving everyone. He was absolutely amazing.
It made the event much more memorable. Comments received afterwards were “how nice the meal and venue were and especially the performance by Damian the Magician”.
It was exactly the right balance for the occasion.
We chose to have Damian magic up a glass of champagne to propose a toast and this rounded off a very magical celebration.
I'll definitely be booking you again, and will be recommending you to anyone who would wish to make their party or meal a quality event. This is quality entertainment delivered either to a group of people or to individuals. The skills are unbelievable and right in front of your eyes.
It was perfect, thank you so much.
Derrick Shrubb - Birthday Party
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for Saturday. Having seen how brilliant you were in the past I wanted my guests to be as impressed as I was. Your magic was the perfect way to entertain them and is something they will remember. Everyone was astonished and all commented on how good you were. A great talking point that made the day more memorable for everyone.
Many thanks once again and I will forward some photos when I get them.
Sophie Campion - Wedding
I have been at weddings and dinners where a magician was very well received. They provide entertainment to a large number without having to have everyone's attention at the same time. Plus it breaks up the day at a wedding and is a great talking point.
I booked Gingermagic because they were the quickest and most responsive to my initial enquiry. They were helpful and keen to get the booking, without being pushy.
Damian's performance was outstanding, we are all still talking about it now! His entertainment gave everyone something to talk about. Everyone had a story to tell. This then became an icebreaker and topic of conversation for the guests who didn't know each other.
Damian was very friendly and professional throughout, and the quality of his magic was superb. Normally, one can see flaws in this kind of entertainment. However every bit of magic was faultless. The card in the block of ice and the bonding trick at the end particularly impressed me.
When I need a magician again, Damian will be my first choice.
Thank you again for being part of a fantastic day, made even better by your performance.
Paul Bazen - Wedding
I would like to thank you again for the mind blowing performance Damian put on, on Wednesday 8th July. Left literally speechless, more than once!
Ryan Hall - Wedding
I wanted to add something special to my party. Something out of the ordinary that would be talked about after the day.
The only concern I had before booking a magician was getting good value for money. I made the right choice with Damian! He wasn't the cheapest option, but he was excellent value for the price.
Damian's very professional approach was clear straight away. He made the effort to follow up my initial enquiry, without pestering. Professional, easy to deal with, no hassle. Great marketing and a great act !
I just wish I'd been able to see more of Damian myself. The magic I did see was simply brilliant !!
I would recommend Gingermagic to anyone who wants a class act.
Thank you for a great performance.
Derek Sweeney - Birthday party
Thought I'd send you a quick email to thank you for Saturday night.
Truly amazing! You had many people baffled, including me! We will definitely be recommending you.
Thanks once again,
Debbie Griffin - Birthday party
We all thoroughly enjoyed your being here and you have been the centre of most of the conversations we’ve had locally.
Thank you - we were both, honestly, delighted.
Best regards, Tuck
Tuck Moss - Birthday Party
Damian came an awful L-O-N-G way to entertain us with his Magic!
He was absolutely Amazing!
We and our guests have not stopped talking about him, and we can't figure out how he did it! Non of us!
His skills are television quality and for us he ranks in the Top Few in the country!
We will never forget the extra dimension he brought to our Wedding and WORTH EVERY PENNY! Fantastic!
Terry Briscoe - Wedding
Just want to thank you so much for your fabulous magic at my sister's wedding to Nigel. You really made the evening special with your amazing talent. Seriously, I have no idea how you did that stuff. I meant it when I said you must be one of the missing Weasley twins!
If you ever find yourself in Vancouver, give me a call!
Mary Lavery - Wedding
We wanted some entertainment during our drinks reception and this was perfect. Damian came with a personal recommendation from one of my colleagues, so I was excited to see him for myself.
We booked two magicians from Gingermagic - Damian and Gary who were both amazing. We're still talking about them in the office. They provided an unobtrusive form of entertainment whilst still providing the wow factor that we were after - I have absolutely no idea how my signed playing card made its way into a block of ice!
Throughout the whole process, Damian was really helpful and friendly to deal with. I would thoroughly recommend him to everyone and can't wait for the opportunity to see him perform again.
Vicky Kenyon - Corporate celebration
We had no hesitation in booking a magician for our wedding as we had seen one before at another event. Plans were in place for another magician, who is a family friend, to perform for us. Unfortunately, he let us down at the last minute.
While searching for a replacement we found Gingermagic. We were delighted that Damian was still available. He was friendly and and efficient at such short notice.
Damian's performance added a surprise element to the wedding and helped get people who didn't know each other that well talking. I'd recommend Gingermagic to any group or small gathering requiring a magician.
We also chose one of Damian's extras, which was a very good way to finish the performance.
Great service, great performance, great reactions and great value for money!
Thank you for stepping in and adding to our wedding day
Karen Gardiner - Wedding
I was looking for something different for my husband's birthday party. And something suitable for older guests. I chose Gingermagic because they were very professional and were honest with the details to look for.
Damian's show was fantastic! Very entertaining, and he tried to involve as many people as possible.
Everyone enjoyed the performance, especially my husband. We are all still talking about it.
The things that stood out for me were Damian's personality and friendliness, and the fact that he had everyone fooled.
I was pleased that the venue were interested in Damian's performance and do hope that this will lead to further bookings.
Wishing you all the best.
Maureen Rain - Birthday Party
I found Gingermagic on the Magic Circle website. Damian seemed to be the only operator near the West Country, so I took a flyer on it. Obviously, you don't know quite what you might get in booking a magician. I relied on the Magic Circle imprimatur for quality.
My hope what that it would be fun to book a magician. A nice surprise for Suzanne's birthday and something that would add to the weekend away and provide a talking point afterwards. The show did all that.
I wanted a family show. Damian was honest in saying that he did not do children's magic. However, all the family enjoyed the show - everyone was engaged.
I find magic tricks fascinating. I don't know anyone who doesn't! Damian was excellent. Clever, engaging, just what you hope for.
Close-up magic must be quite difficult. The tricks were superb. Finding the card in the ice and the £20 note in the lemon were great highlights.
We all very much enjoyed the show and thought the tricks were terrific.
Many thanks for a great entertainment. Everyone thought it was great fun – especially Suzanne.
All the best,
Philip Allan - Birthday party
The last thing I wanted was a tacky cheap magician to entertain guests at my 50th birthday party. I chose Gingermagic because of the great google reviews.
Damian was excellent. He enabled groups to interact better and made the atmosphere far more enjoyable. Everyone was well entertained and is still talking about a week later!
My highlight was the card that was signed and appeared in a block of ice.
The extras we chose also added a nice finale to the evening.
Highly recommended for anybody looking for a magician or who is looking for entertainment at a private function.
Great guy and a pleasure to have around - excellent magic and a truly outstanding performer.
Grant Hooper - Birthday party
This was one of our regular annual events. Finding something different for each of our dinners is very difficult.
I was impressed when I came across the Gingermagic website. Very professional.
Good and regular communication leading up to the event was essential. I have a very busy day job at the moment and couldn't give maximum concentration to organising this event. Damian made everything extremely easy for me.
We had never booked a Magician for any of our events previously. I wouldn't hesitate to do it again! It suited the age demographic of the members and I received many compliments from the guests.
Damian was very good, very entertaining. His style suited the guests and felt just right for our evening.
I'll definitely be booking Damian again.
Thanks for adding to our evening.
Dave Burgess - Motor Club Dinner
Many thanks for such a stunning performance yesterday. The happy couple were delighted with the surprise and are still talking about it. You astounded and confounded!
I was hoping for something to liven up the reception at dipping points and I knew from your website that you would be great! I was also very impressed by your complete professionalism and courtesy at all times.
Your performance was simply AMAZING! Your magic retained interest, and provided entertainment, during times that could have otherwise flagged.
I have already recommended you to a close friend with forthcoming wedding. And I'll be booking you again myself as soon as I find another excuse for a celebration.
Thank you again for entertaining our guests so amazingly. You were astonishing!
Barbara Dix - Wedding
Many thanks for a superb performance on Saturday evening - it helped make my mother's birthday truly memorable. Everyone really enjoyed your act, and the discussion on how you did it carried on until we all went our separate ways on Sunday afternoon.
Best of luck with the continued development of Ginger Magic.
Steve Perrin - Birthday party
I wanted something different for my guests and loved the idea of a magician. I went with Gingermagic because they looked good from my internet search.
The performance was excellent. I was quite taken by surprise with some of the magic. My guest's we're very impressed with the act and talked a lot about it afterwards.
The whole service was very professional. Great value for money and I will be booking Damian again in the future. I'll also be recommending him to friends and family. I believe some of them asked him for his details on the day.
I was very happy with everything.
Elaine Oneill - Birthday party
Having never booked a magician before I wasn't sure what to expect. I wanted some good 'walk around' entertainment and liked what I saw on the Gingermagic website.
The performance was excellent. Lots of great reactions from guests. Damian really added a talking point and a great way for people to mingle and enjoy the evening. He was also very friendly, easy to get along with and accommodating (even when being dragged around to perform for some of my key guests!)
We will definitely be booking Gingermagic again!
Good value for money. I would recommend to everyone.
Lisa Littlechild - Corporate event
I just wanted to say a very big thank you for being so brilliant at my birthday party on Saturday and giving all my friends such an amazing magic performance.
It was such such fun.
Big big thank you,
Claudia Burn - Birthday party
Blown away !! I think is the term popularly used on our table.
The ice in the bag.....well it went from a really astounding card trick to true magic.
Brilliant show and thank you for providing such great entertainment.
I will certainly recommend your services to all our parks and pass your details to the park managers.
Mark Kennedy - Annual Business Dinner
My father is a huge fan of magicians and as he is 81 this year it was difficult to think of what to buy the man who has everything. I had the idea of booking a magician. I did my homework, checked out a few and chose the right one.
I chose Damian because he was ginger 🙂 Also because of his YouTube channel which was very impressive.
The booking process was very straight forward. Easy and friendly.
Damian's performance was literally mesmerising. There was a house full that included 4 rather wound up toddlers. The show captivated them as it did all of the adults. Damian has a wonderful way with people of all ages, a truly great showman.
There were a few sceptics that thought they'd be able to tell how the tricks were done. They were silenced and thoroughly impressed.
My personal highlight was the look on my fathers face when he knew the deck of cards had vanished from between his vice like grip. Priceless!
A brilliant evening that made a huge, lasting impression on the greatest man that has ever walked this earth, my father. Thank you, Gingermagic!
PS Teach me the trick that turned the Gingermagic flier into £20 notes!
Owen Pritchard - Birthday Party
We wanted something to entertain the guests whilst waiting for the meal at our Christmas party. We chose Damian because of his professional manner and the price was right. Great value for an exceptional service. And the magic was amazing. Our guests could not believe their eyes!
I would recommend Gingermagic to any company looking to add some fantastic entertainment to their events.
Joanne Arthur - Corporate Christmas Party
We wanted some great entertainment to prevent our Christmas party from being a boring night out with accountants 🙂
We had seen Damian before so knew he was good.
The performance was excellent and we will definitely be booking again.
Tony Paine - Corporate Christmas Party
It was my job to organise the entertainment for Chalmers HB employees at their Christmas Party.
Having used Damian, several years ago, we knew we were going to be in for a real treat - so no concerns, just certain knowledge that we were going to be well entertained. And Trust Me. We WERE. The standard was Through The ROOF.
Staggeringly AMAZING - Cynics BEWARE - he will have you eating out of his hands - Damian is COOL - totally professional - a real master of his trade. Stand back to be bowled over and wonder just how the devil he manages his magic. Simply Brilliant
What a talking point - it brought smiles and laughter from the word 'Go' - it put everybody into the mode of fun and laughter. It made our Christmas party the best ever said one employee - so Thank You Damian.
Beverley Sessions - Corporate Christmas Party
One word - FABULOUS
The event was a festive party but also to remember loved ones that we have lost recently.
Magic was something that I knew would suit all ages and I wanted something up close, like table top magic.
I chose Damian based on fantastic feedback from other people.
The service was outstanding from the very first email to the first time in meeting Damian.
Having never booked a magician for a family and friends party before, I was initially a little apprehensive. However, since meeting Damian and watching his amazing show, I will most certainly book him again.
There were too many highlights to mention, but the magical bonding performance between Lisa and myself was just beautiful.
For me personally, it was the best couple of hours I've had in a very long time.
The magical toast to absent friends finished the show perfectly.
Thank you Damian and Gingermagic.
Tim Rich - Private Christmas Party
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for an incredible performance on Friday night.
After watching the videos on your website, I knew I had to choose you! I'm so glad that I did.
Everyone was blown away and you managed to impress even the most sceptical, so THANK YOU!
You were incredibly professional and I’m so pleased I decided on an hour instead of half an hour.
Everyone is still talking about it!
I will definitely recommend you to everyone!
Simply brilliant - thank you 🙂
Abi Veitch - Corporate Christmas Party
I met Damian at an event in November. Seeing his performance made me want to add his element of entertainment to our Christmas event; to make it different to the usual drinks, food and music.
Damian's performance for us was a constant stream of tricks, performed to a very high standard. Everyone observing was in a state of genuine amazement.
I'd recommend Gingermagic to anyone holding an event! The shared experience of amazement can lift the mood, further relax people and create more socialising and talking points.
Excellent magic, excellent service, excellent value for money. I will definitely be booking again.
Thank you it was a great evening!
Lee Bernard - Corporate Christmas Party
We wanted something different for this years Christmas party. When I found Damian online, I realised that I had seen him perform before, so I was delighted that he was still available and got him booked quickly.
We had a great evening. Damian was excellent. Really clever magic, very friendly, mind blowing!
100% everyone thought it was an amazing thing to do and it made the evening up beat. I couldn't get over the sheer cleverness of the magic.
We also added a couple of Damian's optional extras to our magic package. These were performed to everyone at the end of the night and really brought the room together.
Great job and excellent value for money.
I'll be recommending Damian to my golf club and anyone looking for an act to perform at a corporate event.
Thank you very making the whole evening a success!
Sarah Rendall - Corporate Christmas Party
We have previously used 'ginger', so know exactly what to expect! A smart service and a unique performance. Damian really gets people talking and laughing. He gave a great performance and everyone enjoyed his stuff.
I recommend him to everyone and will definitely be booking again.
Thanks Damian. Have a great 2015
Tony Bowers - Black Tie Boxing event
I wanted to provide a different form of entertainment for our Xmas Dinner and Damian had come highly recommended. Unfortunately, he was already booked when I got in touch. However, he offered me one of his other 'Gingermagic magicians' and assured me that they would be great.
He was right. Dave was really excellent. The reaction was great and we all failed to work out any of the magic. Couldn't fault him in any way.
The whole Gingermagic service was excellent throughout and Dave's performance was faultless.
Anil Batra - Corporate Christmas Dinner
We wanted something special for the relaunch of one of our venues. We also had a new team of staff on-board so wanted the magic to create a time filler, should there be any delays on food, and to provide a memorable and entertaining distraction.
Not having used Gingermagic previously, I was concerned that it was the right thing, given what we were doing. Our PR associate found Damian and I was very happy with the selection.
At the event, Damian was excellent. Professional and adaptable to different customers. The magic added a sparkle. Each group felt the magician was only for them as most of the magic happened at the tables. The customer response was great. Laughter, disbelief and fun.
Mike Phillips - Corporate Relaunch
I chose Damian for Nick's birthday party because of the excellent website showing him in action and feedback from other clients.
From the initial enquiry, right through to the party itself, I was impressed by the personal touch of the whole Gingermagic service.
Damian's performance was excellent and really added another dimension to the evening. What stood out most was simply how talented Damian is. Everyone was talking about his magic all over facebook the following morning. Absolutely amazing!
Sarah Cook - Birthday Party
We have various events at our golf club. We wanted something different and Damian came very highly recommended.
The performance was of the highest quality. Damian worked round all the tables and got everyone involved. A superb show.
I'll now be recommending Damian myself, to anyone who is looking for a magician of the highest quality.
Chris Lea - Annual Golf Dinner
It was my hope that a magician would would bring something different to my party and it certainly did. The magic provided a good way to bring everyone together. Not all my guests knew each other, but they did by the end of the party.
I came across Damian on the internet and when we spoke on the phone I knew he was the right person. His performance was second to none. He made sure everyone in the party was involved. So very friendly and superb tricks!
My special guests were over the moon with their magical keepsake. That was an incredible note to end the performance on, and made my friends very happy.
A big thank you for helping make party a huge success. Can't wait to do it all again!
Maddy Goddard - Birthday Party
Although it's been 4 years since I saw you at Sally's party, I'd remembered you correctly as being a fantastic magician and entertainer. I had remembered correctly and more so. You left us all spell bound on Saturday night and really brought an element of magic to my party, in every possible sense. What I loved, was that everyone would start talking about the trick with whoever they were around, exactly what I wanted and a great way of getting people mixing.
A bit of class and simply breathtaking. Some of your tricks were remarkable!
I will recommend you to everyone, as I am sure will all those present. People were still talking about it this afternoon. My brother even started a count of the number of tricks he witnessed.
The final trick you performed will remain as a wonderful memory from a fabulous evening.
Kate - Birthday party
Damian entertained our business members and guests at the launch party recently, and was absolutely amazing! Even though you see his magic, you can’t believe it. Really fascinating.
Martin, thebestof Launch party
I wanted to thank you for a fantastic evening on Saturday. You being there really was the icing on the cake. I am so glad we booked you! All our guests were blown away by your performance and I'm sure we will be talking about you for many days to come. Steve has always loved magic and you really made his day.
I had a feeling that you were going to suit the evening we had planned. I could also tell that you are very experienced and therefore happy to be flexible about how the evening should pan out. We certainly weren't disappointed. I felt completely comfortable leaving it to you to fit into our evening.
The whole evening was amazing - all our guests were blown away and couldn't take their eyes off your performance. The variety and complexity of the tricks you performed really stood out. And your skill at fading in and out of the evening worked perfectly.
It was good to have the extra items to enable us to involve particular guests. The final performance provided Steve with a memento from his birthday evening which will always be a talking point for us.
I'm truly lost for words. We all came home on such a high. Well done you and a BIG thank you.
I will highly recommend you to other friends, etc. although part of me is loathed to want to share you!
Helen Mercer - Birthday party
I had no concerns before booking. I love a bit of magic for special occasions. I chose Damian because of the quality of the website, testimonials, facebook clips ... and my son has Ginger hair!
The performance was first rate. More than bamboozling… lots of 'how on earth did he do that?!
Damian was good at bringing people together in groups who might not otherwise have mingled. He gave them a common talking point.
The special extra trick that we added to the magic package was just great. A lovely keep-sake for Hugh and Hayley.
I will definitely be booking Gingermagic again.
Roger Marshall - Son's wedding
We wanted to entertain people at our sons wedding. We wanted to wow people.
It's difficult to choose a magician without seeing them in person. We were worried that we would choose one that wouldn't be very good.
Damian's website was excellent. We watched the videos which amazed us. We also read through all the reviews which again everybody spoke highly of GingerMagic.
From start to finish, Damian was so friendly. When we sent emails he responded straight away, even though he was away that week. Very professional.
Then came the performance and we were certainly wowed. He had people following him around just wanting to see more. The way that Damian engaged with everyone was lovely to see. Even as he was leaving he was still doing magic. Utterly AMAZING.
I'm now recommending GingerMagic to Everybody! Friends, family, work colleagues. I have already been speaking to people at work today saying how brilliant Damian was.
Everything was just perfect.
We were so impressed. Damian is a really lovely person who can do some fantastic magic. Everybody has been telling us how brilliant he was. People keep ringing us up to talk about him and saying they just can't believe how great he was.
Joanne Stroud - Son's wedding
You've been booked for 5 of our events over the last few years, and until Sunday night, I'd never seen you myself.
Well, now I have ... Your magic was AMAZING!!!! So worth the wait 🙂
We wanted to wow our VIP guests, and you certainly did that. Unbelievable!!!! I'd never seen anything like it before!!
You also make everything so easy for us. We know you're great, we know everyone loves you, and we know that once you're booked we can just relax and you'll be there to do your thing!
Great value for a great service.
Thanks again for being part of our convention! You know that we'll be calling on you again very soon.
Hannah Chalkley - VIP Corporate Party
The brief to Damian... "We have creative people from leading London advertising agencies and digital marketing consultancies attending our wedding - they needed to be amazed". Amaze us he did! Fitting in with the relaxed environment, he performed not only great magic but was entertaining in his delivery. If you're thinking of a versatile and pragmatic magician for private or corporate events, you should seriously consider Damian - https://www.gingermagic.com/
Grant and Judith Stuart - Wedding
We had a big corporate event, where people were mingling but also sitting down for a three course meal. I wanted unusual, but great entertainment. I had heard great things about Damian, so I wasn’t worried. Even so, his performance exceeded our expectations.
I had never seen the tricks/illusions that Damian performed before. They blew our minds. Even the sceptics were impressed!
When it came to organising the entertainment for this event, Damian made my life easier. He has a very friendly approach, he arrived in good time and there was simply no fuss. Book a professional, get a professional service!
Looking forward to seeing more Gingermagic at our future events. Thank you for a great performance!
Toril Simpson - Corporate Dinner
During wedding planning I have had to speak to many organisations to get the services I need. Not one of them have come close to the amazing service I have received from Gingermagic.
Helpful, friendly and enthusiastic I cannot express how over the moon I am with the service I have received xx
Terri McGill - Wedding
Our guests were very much impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the magic you performed. Lots of exclamations of ’how did he do that’ were heard!
B C Hall - Albert Marsh & Bestelite - Warehouse opening
Quite simply, we hired Gingermagic, and that resulted in a lot more leads for our business! If you're looking to drive footfall and increase leads at an exhibition, to get the most value out of it, you should speak to Damian at Gingermagic.
Chris Williams - B60 Apps, Apps World, Earls Court
Damian’s video really stood out. It wasn’t just that the magic was great, it was an example of fantastic marketing. When you watch one of Damian’s videos, you want to use his services. That’s all any business video is ever trying to achieve!
Adam Corbally, BBC Apprentice Finalist - UK Entrepreneur Video Awards
Marie Cross - Birthday Party
Damian is a perfectionist through and through, he is a quick witted, secretive and captivating magician, and his sleight of hand antics and ginger charm wowed and enthralled all my guests.
Nicola Alesbrook - Wedding
Damian charmed and bewildered the guests at my birthday party – and that wasn’t easy as many of my friends work in the hospitality business and are hard to astound.
His magic was amazing and the service he provided was professional and friendly, from the first enquiry all the way through to follow-up.
If you’re looking for a superb magician, Damian’s your man.
He is . . . just . . . MAGIC!
Barbara Smith - Birthday Party
Damian, you simply dazzled us and our guests at our recent 40th Birthday party and more than lived up to our expectations. I am a huge magic fan and so probably a tricky customer to please, but you absolutely excelled. In particular, the special 'Couple Bonding' trick was well worth the small extra investment and has left us with a superb memento which still has us amazed today! You fitted in effortlessly with our friends, and they haven't stopped talking about you and your amazing tricks. Thanks once again for making our party that little bit special.
Jamieson and Heather and Stride - Birthday Party
Damian is, quite simply, the best close up magician in the UK – and I’ve seen ‘em all.
His magic is at a different level to all those other ‘jobbing’ magicians that ply their trade on the circuit. Many of them are very good, but Damian is brilliant – and that’s the difference.
At our event last Friday he worked the tables at a 400 seater ball and you could tell where he was in the room by the regular ‘whooooah’s that kept erupting over the loud chitter chatter noise. Everyone was stunned by his tricks – even the die-in-the-wool cynics, who were determined not to be impressed, enjoyed his ‘at table’ performances. My favourite was the disappearing wedding ring that re-appeared in a ball of flame on a gold chain. It was extraordinary.
If you want a magician that everyone will forget – book someone else. But if you want a magician that your guests will be talking about for days after then it has to be Damian Surr.

Many thanks for entertaining our guests at the opening of our new building, The Arc. The party was a roaring success and the part you played in making it so was greatly appreciated. Guests were astounded by your tricks and couldn’t believe what they were seeing – you were definitely a topic for conversation. Thanks once again Damian!
