Nigel Francis is a professional magician for hire. My favourite genre of close up magic is coin magic due to its visual nature, but I also perform card magic and magic with various other small objects. I performed my first paid booking when I was 16 and turned fully professional in 2005.

I performed at the Brit Awards in 2010 and featured on the Virgin One TV series "Restaurant in their Living Room" in 2009. Some of my previous clients have included all the British Forces, BP, HSBC, Cooperative Bank, Siemens, Jaguar, Mercedes Benz, BMW, Toyota, Marks & Spencer, John Lewis, Tesco, Asda and Vodafone.

I am most regularly booked for wedding receptions and corporate events but have had several residencies over the years for numerous hotel chains such as Best Western and Double Tree Hilton.

I also occasionally perform on exhibition stands at trade shows in places like Birmingham NEC, and Excel. but this is less about entertainment and more about traffic stopping, crowd building, ice breaking whilst using questioning techniques to identify potential leads and facilitate sales.

Close Up Magical Entertainer performing primarily in a table hopping and/or mix and mingle format for 1/2/3/4 hours usually at wedding receptions and all kinds of corporate events such as banquets, balls and charity fund raisers. Also perform for hotels, restaurants and wine bars, as well as on exhibition stands at trade shows nationwide.

I work self contained, so no requirement for additional equipment. If in the unlikely event I need a P/A I can provide my own equipment.

I frequently work in loud environments and can perform silent if required due to the visual nature of my material but prefer to be able to communicate verbally with my audiences whenever possible.
