Mark Traversoni - Magic Circle Magician & Entertainer
The Magic Zone is a one-stop for all your magical entertainment needs. Mark offers magic suitable for adults and children and has numerous packages available.
Mark is a member of world famous Magic Circle (not to be confused with the many magic clubs and societies that may have magic circle in their name) entry to which is by in their words rigorous examination.
Close-up and cabaret magic are a great addition to any wedding, party, trade show or event. Mark can perform close-up magic standing or at tables to entertain your guests, and can follow this up with a cabaret show.
Mark is an accomplished award winning magician & children's entertainer and has a 2-hour party format that is hard to beat. Mark performs at birthdays, weddings, christenings, 1st birthdays, PTA functions, corporate events; in fact anywhere there are adults and children that need entertaining.
A new addition to this years show options is Mark's Magic Night for clubs and societies. This runs from 7.30-10.30pm and includes close up magic, a cabaret show and music. See the close-up magic link above for more details.
Mark is also an ideal choice for your wedding entertainment, combining any of his magic packages during your special day, he can even finish of the night as your DJ. This option is becoming very popular because weddings do tend to run over time so Mark can easily adjust things during the day, which is not quite so easy if you had booked a number of individuals to come a certain times.
For children Mark can perform magic shows, balloon modeling and a prize-winning disco all performed to the highest standards. If the show is for a birthday then the birthday boy/girl always performs some magic and produces a present, the rest of the show is a mixture of magic and ventriloquism, using the children as helpers whenever possible.
The disco is sure to keep the children’s attention as they try to win a star prize they choose from a selection of toys. For all parties up to 6 year olds every child wins a prize, non elimination games are played and they all win some sweets.
For children over the age of 11 Mark performs a cabaret show (not young children's magic) and his prize winning disco where you choose the music for your friends to dance to.
If your party or event is longer than 2 hours, don’t worry Mark can tailor a package to your needs to ensure the best possible experience.
Mark always works to the highest standards to give you a truly professional show. He is a member of Equity, The Magic Circle and The Leamington and Warwick Magic Society, has £10 million of public liability insurance and a CRB certificate.

Hi Mark! I just had to email to thank you for the awesome magic show you performed on the 19th of December. I wasn't prepared for the fact you would so effortlessly you would be able to hold the attention of the children, aged between 4 and 11. It is to your credit that every one of the children were 'spellbound' by your fast-paced, exciting magic, from the gorgeous 'donut the dragon' to the jaw-dropping table levitation trick, even the 11 year olds!!!! ( and that is NO MEAN FEAT let me tell you! ) even the adults, including me, were fascinated and thrilled by your magic show. I would heartily recommend you to anyone, anywhere, who is looking for a top quality entertainer. You are professional, trustworthy and above all, an incredible magician. Thank you Mark! Very best wishes, Sam Coleman
Hi Mark. Thank you Mark for making Bill's birthday party on Saturday so special. The kids loved your magic show, everyone was talking about your close up magic, and the best part - the egg routine and ventriloquist act - with Bill was fantastic (and very funny!). Thank you again. Linda & Bill, Rugby
Just wanted to say thank you so much for helping to make our
The tricks at the tables were fabulous and superbly entertaining!
So just so say thank you so much, we thought you were
fantastic and wouldn't hesitate to reccommend you to others. In fact my
Dad is trying to think of an excuse to have a party just so he can see

Donut too - he said the kids thought it was great).

Hi Mark, We wanted to write to you just to say a massive thank you for all your hard work on our wedding day. Cannot believe it was 2 weeks ago! It is still a current talking point among friends and family who thought your table magic was amazing, not to mention the floor show and especially "Cindy"! We feel that it added that extra dimension to our reception and also made the evening entertainment suitable for all ages. So pleased we booked you. Many thanks once again and we shall not hesitate to pass your contact number on to anyone who asks. With our very best wishes. Lynda & Tony, Coventry

Hi Mark, I would just like to say a BIG Thankyou for the show you gave Kelsey at her 4th Birthday Party. Everyone had a Great time I've never seen so many Happy & mesmorised Children the magic show was fantastic. I was also impressed with the disco and the fact that you managed to get my husband up dancing which is a first. I have had lots of good coments from some of the parents and children alike all the children were talking about it at nursery on Monday.
The party bags were great and excellent value I could not have done them for that cost and also it saved me so much time it was one less thing to think about and remember.
Once again Thankyou for a great party. Regards: The Coulson Family, Northampton.
Mark - "We are just back from our honeymoon and want to say a big thank
you for everything you did to entertain our wedding guests, young and
not so young, at Down Hall on the 14th August. The whole day
like clockwork and your switch from magician to DJ was seamless. Thanks
again Mark and we would be very happy to recommend you to anyone
looking for a very talented entertainer for any event they are planning
Very best regards." Linda & Tommy, Hanslope, Buckinghamshire.
Dear Mark. "A brief note to say thank you very, very much for providing such a high quality, varied and captivating entertainment during Emma’s 5th birthday party on the 7th of March. The children were absolutely mesmerised by the puppets assisting you in performing the magic. So were the parents, it seems – everybody commented on how good your magic show was (I had so many parents coming to me with the same question: “How did he make that table float in the air?”). Sadly, I was too busy with making sure the party run smoothly that I missed almost all of the tricks, and am now hoping that one of those parents at Emma’s party would book you for their child’s party so that I could enjoy so much talked about show of yours myself!!!
The mini-disco at the end was just perfect, too: I particularly liked it that you sat the children down after each dance, talked to them, letting them get back to themselves and not get hyper-active! Emma was in a fantastic mood all day after the party, and I think you deserve a large chunk of credit for it – the children were entertained without being over-stimulated. A massive thank you. One last thought: I “discovered” you on-line and went by the reviews you have posted on your page. I did think initially that it was a bit risky to go with an entertainer who I did not see myself, nor was recommended by anyone I knew. But, you won me over with your professionalism prior to the party (during our discussions of the arrangements) and I am so pleased I did go with you and got such a fantastically good entertainment on the day! " Svetlana, Leicester
Dear Mark. I am writing to thank you for doing such a brilliant job at our wedding. You managed to provide exactly the magic package I wanted, I could not have been more delighted. My guests clearly thought the same, judging by all the comments I have received. You completely astounded them with some of your tricks. Once again, my most sincere thanks for making my wedding day so special. Carole, Walsall
Hi Mark, "I just wanted to say a massive thank you for being brilliant at Lucy's hen party last night. Lucy couldn't stop talking about how amazing you had been. A group of us had to stay up until about 2am trying to work out how all the tricks worked but in the end we just concluded that it must actually just have been magic. I'll be back in touch next time I organise any type of party but in the mean time will recommend you to everyone I know." Liz, Battersea
Hi Mark, "Just a note to say thank you for giving Jonathan a great party on Saturday.You said I'd be able to sit back and enjoy it as you would keep the children entertained for the full 2 hours and you were right. It made a pleasant change not to have to keep running around keeping them busy and making sure they were all okay. Jonathan and his younger brother Matthew, have been trying to do tricks constantly and we all have to join in with the magic words "Bish Bash Bosh", but Matthew can't understand why things don't just disappear when he waves the wand and says the words! I think you've got two new best friends! Once again many thanks. "Lynne, Woodhouse Eaves
Hi Mark, "Thank you so very much for the fantastic party today for my daughter Anais and Daniel, I know they all had a fantastic time and were fully entertained, I had every child come up to me at the end and tell me it was the best party they had ever been to. The adults were all mesmerised as well. You came highly recommended to me and I shall be highly recommending you, just brilliant. Hope to deal with you again." Sarah, Mount Sorrel
Hi Mark."Thank you for today, everybody really enjoyed themselves. The amount of positive comments I have had from parents is amazing there were quite a few that had intended to leave but then stayed because they were entertained too! George thoroughly enjoyed himself, bugs bunny and the snake have gone to bed with him tonight! Once again thank you so much for the party you were great."
wanted to say a massive thank you for entertaining at Jacks 7th
birthday yesterday, Jack enjoyed himself so much and hasn't stopped
talking about it yet and is amazed that he magiced up a toy
motorbike. Seems the adults are amazed too including myself
especially over how you made the rubix cube go from one box to another.
The quality and variety of the party was great, thank you again Mark,
fantastic!" Rebecca, Lillington
wanted to say a massive thank you for the brilliant job
you did for us at Judes party yesterday! He had such a fantastic time -
in fact we've already had so many comments from other parents to say
what a great party it was! Tony said he looked around at one point and
all the parents were up dancing with the children and having so much
fun - moments like that money just can't buy!"
Tony Robinson, Leicester
"Hi Mark, Just wanted to say a big thank you for entertaining us at our wedding! We had lots of comments about how good you were and what a difference it made to the evening reception.

"Mark - Re Martin's 50th- Just had to say you were an absolute star and made the party. Thanks so much for your time and effort. Hope you get some good bookings on the back of this because everyone was very impressed. Have lost my voice, otherwise I would have rung. Thanks again"Jeannie, Kites Harwick nr Rugby
"We chose Mark for our son's 5th birthday party. Mark is a true professional who did an amazing job with 40 children. I have never seen children so amazed by a magic show and the show had a real personal touch to my son. Mark kept the children entertained with his balloon modelling and the disco was great. The parents were having just as much fun as the children dancing. I have seen many entertainers but none were a patch on Mark. I would recommend Mark he is fantastic and I would definitely book him again." Nicola, Coventry
"Mark- what a find you are! Thank you so much for yesterday. We were looking for a kids entertainer for a christening - so a variety of ages to appeal to - it clearly didn't pose a problem for you at all to engage all the children. I was initially dubious about trying to entertain the adults as well but you were an absolute hit and you even reeled in the teenagers who I thought would be just TOO cool to take any notice of you at all. All the kids haven't stopped talking about you and all the parents want your details. Probably the best money we have ever spent! Jack (our 3 year old son) is now obsessed with making tables rise up in the air by blowing bubbles on them." Sarah and JC, Sutton Coldfield
"Hi Mark. Just wanted to say a Big Thank You for making my 60th Birthday Party so much more memorable. We were all amazed at your magic and we are still wondering how you managed the tricks you did. You kept us entertained all evening."Marilyn, Kings Newnham Rugby.

Absolutely brilliant, great rapport with everyone, the kids loved the balloon making, were transfixed with the magic and even the adults were up dancing with the mini-disco - what's more there were plenty of generous prizes from Mark for the best dancers. All our guests were impressed and would certainly recommend" Jess, Leamington Spa
