Great Entertainment!

We booked Slightly Unusual for a conference and dinner event we held for our clients. They were great at making sure everyone experienced their fantastic magic. We received great feedback from our clients and we will be sure to use them again for any future events.

An amazing, charismatic, fun close-up magician

After a lovely chat on the phone with Craig I knew I wanted to incorporate Slightly Unusual in our wedding reception. I booked with him only two weeks beforehand which wasn’t a problem as the date was still available. My family and ALL our guests (although slightly bemused at first!) were totally in awe of the entertainment that Craig provided. He is friendly, fun and a little bit cheeky, and he really added an extra something to the evening. Our guests, young and old were all surprised and amazed by his abilities and are still talking about it!
Craig is so dedicated that, when his car broke down on the day, he set off early and took 4 trains to make sure he could be here on time. Thank you so much Craig!

Just brilliant - Book Now for your Wedding

Craig was fabulous, I wish all Companies followed this guys simple ethos, Communicate and then Deliver !

When you book a Magician for your Wedding there are many to choose from, I spent days researching and meeting/viewing acts and Craig was simply the best.

1st Class communications from the very 1st contact to the eve of the big day which adds a feeling of security and professionalism.

Craig went above and beyond and my only regret is that we didn’t hire him for the whole day !!

Thanks Craig, Debbie and I are very grateful for you adding your unique brand of entertainment to our Wedding.

Regards

Vince and Debbie

Mind blowing! So glad we decided to book

We booked Slightly Unusual last minute and are so glad that we did. We knew we’d probably like it and hoped everyone else would too. It was even better that we imagined. Everyone has been saying how much they enjoyed it, especially the trick with the coins! No clue how it’s possible! The guys were really nice and friendly and just organised themselves, I didn’t need to worry about them. We’ll definitely book again, it was so much fun.

Speechless

We booked slightly unusual as part of our entertainment at our awards presentation.
Firstly the communication was brilliant, the guys over the phone went through all the details and went over any concerns I had.
On the night we had the pleasure of Steve who did close up magic. He arrived promptly and from the word get go he was entertaining our guests. There were no words to describe it. It was truly amazing! Not only did he wow us with his slight of hand he also incorporated comedy into the way he performed his magic, which made the night fantastic. I would highly recommend. Simply brilliant.

Corporate Event for 300

Firstly, it was very difficult to get a hold of Craig. Eventually got a hold of Craig and he had confirmed his partner Steve to work our event. When we had asked Craig to confirm the acts, he refused to do so and we confirmed him anyway. This was a big mistake!

On the evening, Steve was very professional but his acts were not what we were expecting! They were better suited for a children's party and, therefore, it was embarrassing to watch him perform it in front of 300 of our corporate guests. My client's choice of words were "cheesy" and "cringe."

Craig had told us that the act would be visually stunning and award-winning but unfortunately our client felt this was far from what they received.

Response from Slightly Unusual
Thanks for your review Howell I’m sorry you were unhappy. As we have discussed you were sent videos of the exact routines we would perform at your event. You replied saying these were perfect. These videos were sent to you to sell us as an act to you - the client. I’m unsure how you can be disappointed with the performance when you were happy with the videos of the act that we sent. During the run up to the event you asked for a list of specific tricks we would perform and I told you that each performance is different depending on various factors. However the act would be high energy and interactive and visual. This is completely true Steve is a multi award winning magician and specialises in corporate entertainment. I could send you a list of reviews a mile long that he has received from events similar to yours raving about him. We are not kids entertainers in any way shape or form and definitely not cheesy. As I said I am sorry your client is unhappy. On the night several members of the audience told Steve his performance was fantastic so it’s a shame your client feels this way. Anyway if you would like to discuss this further please give me a call. Thanks. Craig

Alex was brilliant thankyou.

Alex entertained everyone brilliantly at our work Christmas night out. The table top magic was fantastic and the show was very good. He was funny and we all had fun. We are still wondering how he did so many of his fabulous tricks. Will definitely book him again. He was much more reasonable compared to other magicians from the magic circle and I think he was as good as, if not better!
