James Maidment
- Magician and Mind Reader

Over the past 10 years I have been fortunate enough to entertain thousands of guests at hundreds of events and each event is just as important as the last.

My aim is to impress and entertain your guests with plenty of laughs along the way. It will be an experience of strong magic and it will feel as if I am one of your guests friends rather than someone who they’ve just met.

See the magic at a party...

...or a wedding.

Why choose James Maidment?

Strong Magic

Magic grew from a hobby to a profession, but my love of magic still remains. Therefore, I love to provide not just entertaining magic but strong magic that will amaze your guests.

Fun Entertainment

Whilst the aim to impress is part of being magician, no one likes a show off. I present my magic with a sense of humour. Your guests are there to enjoy themselves and don’t want to be patronised.


When booking any service, you always want a professional. Someone who will turn up, will deliver and someone you would be happy to recommend. With over 10 years of experience in the entertainment industry I have built up a reliable reputation.


I have many previous clients both for private events and corporate events that are happy to recommend me.

Check out the testimonials below to see what people think.


I live in Poole, Dorset and regularly cover events across the county, into Hampshire, Wiltshire, Somerset and the Home counties.
I can happily travel to wherever your event is be it London, Devon, the Channel Islands or beyond.

My fee depends on many factors. Mainly the location and duration of the performance, simply send me an email or give me a call and I’ll be able to give you an accurate quote.

Depending on the event and how many guests you have will depend on how long I would suggest.
Most bookings for parties and weddings book 2 hours, for larger events a longer duration may be more appropriate.

If there is a specific date in mind, the earlier the better.
The summer and Christmas are both prime periods due to the number of weddings and events around this time.
If your enquiry is last minute, get in touch. It’s always worth asking as I may be able to fit you in and if not I’ll happily help try and find someone who is available.

I started performing professionally whilst studying at school. I gained a tremendous amount of experience performing weekly in a restaurant and at various private events.

We’ll laugh and joke and share moments of impossible.
