Magic Russ

Whether your little one is still putting crayons up their nose and has the bladder control of a 22-year-old chihuahua, or they can say the whole alphabet backwards and have decided they're old enough to get their own iPhone, we have the perfect package to suit, if you're looking for someone who'll make your child's party memorable, fun, and stress-free, you need Magic Russ. If you're only inviting a few of your child's closest friends or are planning on hiring out the Ricoh Arena and inviting the entire school year and your extended family, Magic Russ is guaranteed to deliver an experience your little one will be talking about for years to come. You don't need to worry about what happens should any trick go drastically wrong as all the children will be transported to Narnia.

Magic Russ carries an Enhanced DBS (formally known as CRB, for the older generation) Certificate, full public liability insurance, and a magic wand for real emergencies! His electrical equipment is PAT tested in line with the law, and his companion, Dave The Wonderdog, almost never wees on the children. Finally, Russ is a member of The Magic Circle, which means he swore an oath not to turn any of the children into frogs. Even the naughty ones. Best of all, with the kids captivated by the tricks, jokes and games, you'll be free to drink a cup of tea without a child hanging off your leg, eat some chocolate without having to share it, or have a lie down in a dark room.

Show Options

Pre-School Party – 30 – 40 minsIf your little one's attention span is similar to that of a goldfish who has been swimming around the tank a little too long, you're probably worried a 1- or 2-hour party package will be too much for them - no matter how funny or entertaining it is. Fortunately, Magic Russ has created a show perfect for the younger audience too, with colourful, friendly puppets and a storyline even the youngest kids can relate to, it's ideal for nursery groups or birthday parties alike.

Extra's

Face Painting - While Magic Russ is many things, he is not a great face painter. Last time he tried, his "Hulk" came out looking like 'Shrek' and his 'Princess Elsa' was mistaken for a case of frostbite. That's why, subject to availability, Russ can bring an expert face painter to your party.  She's a member of FACE, The Face Painting Association, and has all the same legal certificates Russ has - which she never lets him forget. She's so strict about hygiene standards and the health and safety of the children whose faces she paints, its been rumoured her designs can cure leprosy (although this has never been proven). With endless designs available, the only limit is the imagination of your children.

I'm not usually the kind of person to leave feedback, but I just wanted to say how brilliant the show was that Russ put on for my son’s 3rd birthday. I also have an older son, so it was a mixed age group, but there was something for everyone- including the adults! He organised all the games and even the singing of happy birthday, so much stress was taken out of the day. A fabulous time was had by all and I would highly recommend him - Becky Groves


We hired Russ to entertain 30 very excited children, for 2 hours at our son’s 4th birthday party. He was such a pleasant bloke. His amazing show had all of the children engaged from start to finish. The following day all of the parents at his nursery were telling us how funny Russ was. His teacher also informed us that all the children spoke about at nursery was the party. I would highly recommend Magic Russ, if you want your child to have the perfect party - Tim Hudson


 We hired Russ for our daughters6th birthday party. He managed to keep 35 children engaged for a full 2 hours, including the grownups. He was brilliant with the children & we had so many people comment on how amazing he was. He arrived early, was clear with timings from the beginning and made sure the party ran smoothly. The booking process was easy & he was very accommodating. Worth every single penny! This was the second time we have seen the Magic Russ show and it was as brilliant as the first time. Highly recommended - Sarah Heaton
