What you'll do

Prepare to be inspired and spellbound as we go on an epic 90 minute journey through my magical world.

Join me in the Secrets of Magic Zoom Classroom where you will take part in a mind-blowing magic show with everyday objects such as cards, coins & the gold-dust of our times - a roll of toilet paper!

I'll share with you heartfelt & inspiring stories of truly magical moments that have happened while entertaining children in hospital, which helped me discover what the true secret of magic really is.

The show section dramatically ends with an attempt to break one of my Guinness World Records live for you on camera! (Goes without saying it won't be the skydive record I'm afraid)

Then it's your turn to give it a go!

I'll share with you some of the tricks you've just witnessed me perform. But this experience won't just be about learning tricks, we'll also explore the psychology that turns a trick into a piece of magic.

For families, the recommended age of this experience is 7+ however private bookings get a bespoke service, allowing me to adapt to your child's age range/needs.

This experience is great for team-building and if you book as a private group, I can provide a bespoke piece of magic. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message!

*Price is based on per person watching, regardless of location or if viewing on the same device*

I've been performing magic since the age of 12. Over the past few years, I broke several Guinness World Records in magic to raise money/awareness for Spread a Smile who provide entertainment for children in hospital.

I hold the Guinness Book of World Record titles for:
Most Magic Tricks on a Skydive
Most Magic Tricks in a Wind Tunnel
Most Magic Tricks Blindfolded in 1 Minute
Most Playing Cards Identified in 1 Minute

Each record has been crazy ride, particularly the blindfold record, which was first achieved on Britain's Got Talent in 2018 and which I’ve since broken twice in 2019.

This online experience is an adaptation of my in-person experience “Secrets of Magic at Kings Cross Station” which has almost 40 5-star reviews!

My magic is family friendly and guaranteed to be an experience you'll remember forever!

So fun! Who knew I could do magic too! And from my home virtually. Thanks for the great remote show I loved it!

The experience with Martin was phenomenal, professionally put together and beautifully executed. My daughter and her friends loved every minute of it and two of them have already decided to be magicians too when they "grow up". Moreover, Martin was unbelievably responsive, day and night UK time and seems like a really lovely, kind caring bloke. Highly recommended and we will undoubtedly ask for him again next birthday.

We thought this experience would be a treat for our daughter's 9th birthday, and something fun for her friends - and could not be happier with our decision! Martin was very responsive when I first started researching and organizing the virtual party, through to afterwards. The experience itself did not disappoint; he was super engaging, made the birthday girl feel special while ensuring that each child was included and had a chance to participate. They were mesmerized. Love how well Martin connected with the kids, that they learned some very cool tricks and how he ended the show with some lovely thoughts about how to bring people a bit of joy in times like these where we need it most. Judging by the steady stream of texts I'm getting from the other parents, their kids loved it too. Thank you Martin! Would highly recommend this experience!

We had a team outing with Martin' experience, and we are so happy that we made a great choice! The experience was so fun and personal, and he even taught us simple but exciting tricks at the end . The online experience was perfect that we didn't feel it's less interactive than meeting in person. Recommended for everyone!

Our group really enjoyed Martin's activity. He demonstrated a lot of his unique experience about magics, including some life stories and Guinness records. In addition to showing the magics, he also taught us some basic tricks. We hope we had more time and could learn more. Martin also customized to make some tricks relevant to our group. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.
