to write and thank you for a special magic show at Coney Hill

didn’t always get the responses from the Children. As
you know, I made a video for Ben, who has watched it every day
since! and loves it, we even have to call him Magic Billy. Thank
you for the balloons that you made for the children and also

Magic Billy and his family I would just like
to thank you very much for the show your performed for my son
Hadley’s second birthday, although he was not well on
the day as he came out in chicken pox that morning he has to
watch it at least once a day on video and he pretends he is
doing magic all the time and we all have to clap. I think I
even know your show off by heart I have watched it so much!!
Merry Christmas and all the best thanks for entertaining my
son so often.” Michelle, Joe and Hadley O’Connor.
Dear “Magic Billy” (!). Thank
you so much for the wonderful show at Annabel’s party
the children (and adults!) were Spellbound. We have already
recommended you to several people! James Pilcher.
Dear Magic Billy Thank you so much for your
brilliant and totally engaging session that you performed at
the party. All the children and adults present are still talking
about your act and it was central to the success of the party!
So once again thank you and I will have no hesitation in recommending
you to other friends and family in need of high quality and
value for money entertainment.“Marilyn Charles.
Dear Magic Billy Thank you for a superb show!
All the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and several parents
have asked for your phone number for next year’s parties
(their children thought you were great). Adam loves his balloon
model and it is hanging as a mobile in his bedroom. It was Adam’s
decision to write to you so I think that shows just how much
he enjoyed your magic. Thank you.” Geraldine M
Maryville Old People’s
Home, Higham – “It was an excellent show
which all of our elderly people thoroughly enjoyed. Magic Billy
was very smart and very pleasant, several of them had objected
to us having a magician but ‘Magic Billy’ had them
all ‘Spellbound’ and his act exceeded our expectations.”
Magic Billy kept 38 Children spellbound
for I hour which I more than magic! and the adults were amazed
by his rabbit trick; he had a very pleasant manner, excellent
Mrs T Cooper.
The Children and I and my friends all
thought he was great, very smart and very nice and the entertainment
exceeded our expectations – the doves and the rabbit was
riveting, we were spellbound. We will ask him to come again.
The talking picture and the underpants trick were memorable
too – but the RABBIT!!!
“Excellent, very good with children
and adults and he kept 22 children enthralled for one hour.”
“Exceeded our expectations he had an excellent manner
it was really a very good act. We would have him again.”
"Enormous thanks to Magic Billy and his
friends who delighted us again this year at St John the Evangelist
Christmas Fayre, East Dulwich. Not an easy venue to play in
as the audience tend to wander about to do their shopping but
Billy always draws an audience together and entertains both
the young and the old and never disappoints. As one departing
child said “See you next year…”
