James Parker

Award-Winning Magician

In our nine-to-five rational world it has become increasingly important to experience something beyond it, an experience of mystery and wonder.

James Parkers vision of magic is to combine the perfect balance of classical and contemporary performance in order to invoke a timeless sense of mystery and wonder at your event.

He apprenticed in the magic arts at the tender age of ten and during his teens he performed on stage and television. In his twenties he won a number of prestigious awards for both stage and close up magic.

James was invited to perform in front of 3,000 international magicians at one of the largest magic events in Europe where he received the title of British Junior Magical Champion. He is also the winner of the Guild of Magicians Close Up Competition and double winner of the International Brotherhood of Magicians Dittia Shield.

James has gone on to tour around the country performing at many prominent events and shows from Circuses, Galas and Theatres, including the Magic Circles most highly esteemed event of the year, their annual Christmas show.

He now performs across London and the UK, sharing his experiences and demonstrating the mysterious and inscrutable phenomena which even the most learned scholars still cannot explain.

James believes magic is a serious art because it questions the very foundations of human perception.
