Yorkshire Magician Available for worldwide event entertainment

International Magician from West Yorkshire

Although Oliver Parker is an English magician based in Leeds, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom – he absolutely loves to travel with his ‘work’! (If it wasn’t obvious enough from the video above…)

With weddings, private parties, New Year celebrations, VIP concerts, leaving parties and corporate events across the globe under his belt in the last few years of his full time professional magician career, no event is too far away for Oliver to consider.

Whether you’re planning a destination wedding in the Mediterranean, corporate conference in Asia, private party in Scandinavia, surprise Hen Do performance in Europe, office party in London or just a dinner party in West Yorkshire, Oliver will make it his duty to create a truly unforgettable magical experience for your guests at your event!

Yep, he’s done all of those… including when a repeat client called up last minute during the busiest week of the summer and flew him out the next day to Paris to surprise the client’s daughter on her Hen Party – then flew straight back to 2 weddings the following day in York and Leeds – Wow, what a weekend and obviously the magic went down an absolute storm!

When he’s not learning how to say “I am a magician” in a foreign language (je suis un magicien / ich bin ein Zauberer / soy un mago / eu sou um magico illusionista / sono un mago), Oliver is mostly booked up in and his home city of Leeds.

He also frequently performs at corporate events, weddings and parties all year round in surrounding areas including York, Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle, Doncaster, Hull, Liverpool, Nottingham, Leicester, London, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Oliver loves to live life sensibly on the edge… His car is always fitted with winter tyres to ensure he won’t miss your event, even when the rest of England grinds to a halt!

Who is

Oliver Parker Close Up Magician logo

Professional Entertainer Close Up Magician & B-Boy (Breakdancer)

Oliver calls himself @funprovider for a reason!

Just check out his magic and breakdancing over the last decade…

Why do you do magic?

I love making people happy, I’m a giver 😉

I mostly do this through magic, but I also breakdance professionally, facilitate team building rhythm and drumming activities with my father’s business, offer health & fitness advice and have a strange obsession with Iceland

My Journey

Age 7

My grandad and family, none of whom were magicians, introduced me to simple card tricks, children’s magic sets and magic books from about the age of 7 and supported my journey to award winning success and professional performances whilst still in school…

Age 11

Entertaining others is my passion and what makes me happy –  I had this realisation from about the age of 11 when I would perform street magic in my local town and every break time for pupils and teachers at my high school. I’ve never wanted to do a ‘real’ job since! 

Age 12

I received a massive confidence boost and reassurance that my relentless hours of hard work and practise was paying off during my junior magician years when I won the first ever competition I entered: MagicTricks.co.uk Under 18’s Close-up Entertainer of the Year with a delightful prize of £200.
More awards and recognition soon followed from well respected members of The Magic Circle, The Northern Magic Circle, The Leeds Magic Circle and The Bradford Magic Circle – blowing people away in both Close-Up Magic competitions and Stage Magic competitions…

Age 14

Aside from relative’s family Birthday parties and charity events – I was hired for my first professional well paid event by Asda at just 14 – performing close up magic around the Holt Park, Leeds store for a Harry Potter book launch day.

Age 16

At the age of 16 I realised I loved the ability to connect with my audiences on a personal level, interacting with them face to face and experiencing their reactions as I made miracles happen right under their noses – this is when I decided to specialise in performing close up magic with everyday items such as money, playing cards, jewelry etc. and leave the out-dated traditional cheesy stage magic props behind. 

Age 18

As soon as I left 6th Form, I registered as self-employed and tried to take over Leeds… with a pack of cards. 

Age 26

It had been 10 years since entering my last magic competition so I decided to enter the Leeds Magic Circle – Close Up Magician competition… winning 1st place against some great Leeds magicians both young and old!

Now – Age 29

I now travel the world and am hired to entertain at around 200 events per year – including several major corporate clients, but also lots of special individuals whose beautiful wedding days I’ve shared, Birthdays I’ve contributed to and soaked up far more nightlife than one individual should be able to handle!  

After well over 20 years of practising, performing, competing and perfecting my art of close up magic, I can tell you with 99.3% certainty that:

People love magic…

And I love showing magic to people!

Treat your guests with magic at your event
