Covid Compliant Close-Up Magician 
I have a full Covid Risk Assessment for my general magic work and for each individual magic trick I perform.  I work within Scottish Government Covid Guidelines, following social distancing, face-mask, using alcohol gel when necessary. I will take a Lateral Covid Test the day before the event and if I test positive will cancel my booking with you, give you a full refund of any payments made and try and find a replacement magician.

If the event needs to be postponed due to Covid, I will carry the deposit forward to the new date.

I am a full-time professional close-up, sleight-of-hand magician based in Edinburgh, specializing mainly close-up card magic, but also magic with everyday objects (a ring, Kitkats, etc…).  I also do some mind reading.  I am well known for making various objects disappear and reappear in impossible locations. 

I perform at weddings, corporate events, dinners, charity occasions, bars/restaurants and festivals throughout Scotland and beyond. The type of magic I provide mostly is strolling magic round small groups of people and/or sitting at a table.  I am a family entertainer, provide magic for adults and young people (aged 7/8 years upwards).  I am not children’s entertainer.

I have had the pleasure of performing for some well known companies, including EY, Royal Bank of Scotland, J.P. Morgan, PWC, Deloitte, Standard Life Aberdeen, Baillie Gifford, Scottish Whisky Association, Glasgow Science Centre and the National Museum of Scotland. I am also resident close-up magician at the world famous Pleasance Courtyard during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. I’m also resident magician at The Pitt Street Market (Edinburgh) and Heb Celt Fest (Stornoway).

I have 76 FIVE STAR Google Reviews, with testimonials from many different people who I’ve entertained.  You can find this by doing a Google search for ‘Jim the Magician Edinburgh’ or clicking on this link, where all my Google Reviews are listed on my website – www.beyondbeliefmagic.co.uk/testimonials/google-reviews

As part of my company Beyond Belief Magic, I also teach magic to beginners and intermediate level, both on a one-to;one basis and in small groups.
