About

about philip sweeting award winning magicianPhil caught the magic bug as a boy and has been entertaining people professionally part-time since 2009.  He specialises in close-up magic – which happens right under your nose.  He is most at home performing strolling magic at formal dinners, wedding breakfasts or indeed any setting where you wish to add a little magic. Some of his magic is also appropriate for a cabaret/stage setting.

Over the years Phil has performed in a variety of venues – from the Officers Mess at Deepcut Army Barracks (for their black tie Christmas dinner) to an Old Time Music Hall fundraiser for Farnham Assist. His magic includes mind-reading and sleight of hand – but the focus is always on entertainment.

Phil receives the Hinsley Hand Trophy for most entertaining card trickPhil has recently been awarded the Weller Trophy (for most entertaining close up act, which he also won in 2010).  He is a previous winner of the Hinsley Hand Trophy 2013 (for most entertaining card trick)and the Harry Kaye Cup (for the best stage act).  He also runs a website aimed at professional magicians called bicycle-cards.co.uk.

If your event requires the services of more than one magician, as an active member of both a local and national magic society Phil has contacts with a number of other professional magicians who he would be happy to recommend.
