Please come and see my Edinburgh Fringe Show 2022, ‘The Magic of Jim’, from Wednesday 3rd to Monday 29th August (not the 15th).

After many years of performing outside around tables at The Pleasance Courtyard, dodging the heavy rain shows, I have finally been let indoors with my own venue!

The show takes you on a magical journey of my 12 years of performing magic at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and The Pleasance Courtyard.

I am a professional full-time close-up, sleight-of-hand magician based in Edinburgh, specializing mainly close-up card magic, but also magic with everyday objects (a ring, lego, chocolate bars, lollipops, etc…).  I also do some mind reading too.  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, Lloyds Banking Group, Standard Life Aberdeen, Baillie Gifford, Scottish Whisky Association, Glenmorangie, William Grant & Sons, Glasgow Science Centre and National Museum of Scotland. I am also resident close-up magician at the world famous Pleasance Courtyard during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and resident magician at HebCelt Festival (Stornoway).

I have 90 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.
