Ashby-de-la-Zouch Children’s entertainer, William the Wizard has been a popular kids magician and entertainer around this area for the last 10 years or so. His act is not your standard children’s entertainer show but something, young, fresh and original; full of fun, comedy, magic, laughter and interaction.

With Ashby-de-la-Zouch being just a 30 minute drive from William’s home village, William is ofen booked to perform for kids and adult’s alike around the area fro birthday parties, Christening and other Celbrations for children. The most popular show he offers  is his full 2 hour party package which kicks off with 45 minutes of party games. This includes loads of non-elimaination dancing games, quizzes and other fun party games with the kids winning sweets and prizes. They are all non-elimination, age-specific and no sad faces ;-( After a quick break for food and to blow out the candles on the birthday cake and everybody to sing happy birthday, it’s back in for the full 45 minute magic and puppet show.

This involves loads of comedy, fun, laughter, magic, comedy and a really fun interactive 10 minute puppet act. The kids get to come up and help out with the magic and the birthday child has loads of extra fuss made over them to make them feel extra special.

“Just wanted to say a big thank you for performing at Emily’s birthday party and making her feel so special. She and all of her friends had an amazing time and all the parents were amazed at how well you entertained them. The adults loved the magic you did for them too so a massive thank you from all of us!”

Julie Partington – Ashby-de-la-Zouch


If you were thinking that the 2hour party package was a bit long for you (which it never is – and the kids’ are usually shouting fro more) William does also offer a 45 minute magic and puppet show which is exactly the same as above but without the mini-disco, lights and party games. William can also organise party bags, and balloon animals to make your life even easier.

If you have seen him once before once before – do not worry – William offers more than one show – loads of different puppets, tricks, comedy, gags and lauaghter!

If you are having a wedding, private party, Christening or summer BBQ where there are older kids or some adults requiring a bit of magical entertainment – William also offers some exciting, young, fresh and contemporary close up and table magic too – ideal for the older kids who think they are too cool for adult magic ;-) or the adults. This kind of magic is the kind of stuff you have seen on TV but refused to believe and includes turning a borrowed £5 note into £20, plucking thoughts out of your mind or changing a deck of cards into a block of glass whilst you are holding them.

For either kids’ or adult magic, William can tailor his act and packages to suit your requirements.

To find out more about his adult magic, please check out his close up magic website which has more details additional information and his Show-reel:

As mentioned before, William’s adult magic is also perfect for kids who think they are ‘too cool for kids magic’ and are similar to the things you or your family would have seen Dynamo or David Blaine perform.

William can also offer workshops for older children too, where in the first half he performs his 45 minute magic and puppet show which you can check out on the show reel above but is geared towards more older children and then the second half teach them some really fun, cool magic tricks for them to learn, make and go away and perform and impress their friends…..
