Table magic is more than perfect for any event where your guests are sat down at a table to enjoy a meal. Stephen can come and entertain your guests at each table for 5-10 minutes. Often Stephen is booked for large events with more than 100-150 guests. if this is the case Stephen suggests having more than one magician entertain to ensure that all the guests get to enjoy some magic. As a rough rule, we think one magician for every 120-150 guests works out about right.
