Jamie Raven is a Professional Magician who was unanimously voted into the world famous Magic Circle at the first attempt. His performances which include an appearance at Buckingham Palace as part of the Queens 80th Birthday Celebrations are part of a new wave in Magic and Mind Reading.
His style of modern and contemporary deception combines classic traditional expertise with Psychological Illusion using a variety of techniques to predict, suggest and control behaviour in order to achieve the apparently impossible. Recreating a drawing that somebody has made without seeing it, telling somebody a word or a name that they are thinking of, or guessing correctly the outcomes of decisions that are yet to be made.
He is one of very few magicians in the world specialising in this area of „Mind Reading‰ who can also offer you more traditional Magical entertainment at the same time, for example borrowing a £5 and turning it into a £50, vanishing a borrowed ring and have it re-appear instantly sealed in an envelope behind a zipped compartment in his wallet, or demonstrating why you should NEVER play cards with a stranger, let alone a Magician.
He has been invited to perform his unique approach to magic both professionally and privately for some of the most high profile companies and individuals in the world. Performances include, television, trade shows, parties, launches and corporate functions of numerous kinds, at some of the most illustrious venues on offer and also at some of those which aren‚t.
These include, The Royal Albert Hall, The O2 Arena, The Lainsborough, The Dorchester, The Langham, The Cumberland, The Landmark, The Crowne Plaza in New York, The Hotel De Paris in Monte Carlo, The 5 Star Kempinski Hotel in Dubai and as previously mentioned, Buckingham Palace as part of the Queen's 80th Birthday Celebrations.

Reception Drinks and Photographs:
Once the ceremony has finished and the photographs begin, there will be times when some of your guests won’t be having their photographs taken. They will be standing and waiting for the next part of the day to begin. This is a perfect time for Jamie to entertain before the meal commences.
The Wedding breakfast:
By the nature of the seating arrangements, more often than not, guests will be sat next to people they have never met before. Magic performed in between the course’s of the breakfast not only acts as an ideal ice-breaker, provoking wonder, amazement and thoughtful questioning amoungst new friends, but also helps whittle away the time spent waiting for the next course to arrive.

This period where people are again being introduced to new friends and family members before they find the courage to hit the dance floor is another excellent opportunity for your guests to be entertained amoungst broken ice.
