Q: Do you always wear the hat?

A: Nope.  I’ll wear whatever you want. I wore black tie no hat for the Royal Variety Performance after party, shorts and sandals for a summer garden party, or yes the hat. People like to borrow it and it makes me easy to find.  Basically though I’ll do whatever you want.  I even bought a purple outfit in order to fit a client’s party colour scheme

Q: Do You Travel?

A: I’ll go wherever you need me and have entertained in France, Germany, Scotland and the Netherlands (but mostly I am entertaining in Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey and London).

Q: What type of magic do you do?  Is it just cards?

A: It’s a mix of varied and original magic and mind reading delivered with self deprecating humour.  It not just cards… though it can be if that’s what you would like.  Everything is about fulfilling your vision and making your event the best it can be.

Q: Do you have public liability insurance / risk assessments etc. ?

A: Red Hat Magic has a full suite of corporate documents including an anti slavery policy, health and safety policy, risk assessments and public liability insurance of £10 million.
