Delighted to recommend Amazing Stephen.  At my mum's 90th birthday party he entertained everyone from age 2 to 90 with a fantastic range of magic tricks.  It made the party a really memorable occasion for all.        Sylvia Farrar (Glossop, 10th February 2016)

Thank-you for all the excellent shows you performed for our Libraries this year. They were very well received and I have had lots of positive feedback.        Elaine McConnell, Senior Library Assistant, Uppermill Library, Oldham

  

You did an excellent job with the magic school and all the children have enjoyed it. It made a great summer for all the camper while teaching them a whole new skill and hobby that they can continue at home. Thank-you.        Joanne Morgan, Director of Camp Mountain Summer Camp, USA

 

Just wanted to say a huge thank-you for the party today.  Everyone enjoyed it – kids and adults.  Many adults came up to me at the end and said how good you were.  A couple have asked me for your details which I’ll pass on.  And the fact that none of the kids moved for the full hour was brilliant! Thanks again.         Sue (Rioelle's mum)

 

Just wanted to say Thank You very much for performing at our Children's Christmas Parties. The feedback we have received has been excellent and the children all had a fantastic time, Thank you so much for keeping them all entertained I know it must not have been easy with such a wide age range. We will be in touch again soon.         J. Gibbons - Leisure Benefits Administrator for John Lewis Cheadle & Trafford

  

I just wanted to let you know that after your performance in today's party, five other parents booked there party with us, on the back of your show. We also love the donut puppet you created to highlight our shop. Head Office were delighted with the photo I sent to them and have shown interest in booking you at restaurants all down the country!         Manager of Krispy Kreme Donut Restaurant, Trafford Centre

I just wanted to give you a quick note and say thank-you for the excellent show you did for us today. Tom absolutely loved it, as well as all his friends. His favourite part was the frog gag, which he is still talking about. Many thanks.        Samantha (Mathew's mum)

 

Close Up MagicI wanted to thank you for entertaining at Fiona’s Birthday Party. All the children enjoyed themselves and they all loved the balloons you gave them.        Diane (Nieve's mum)

 

Thanks for entertaining our kids yesterday. They all seemed to have a great time. The age range made it quite a challenge for you, but I got v. good feedback.         Debbie (Rose's mum)

 

Thank you for your running such an amazing magic show and disco at Tom’s Party. I couldn’t believe how you held their attention for two full hours, that in itself was magic, so thanks again and obviously we will recommend you highly.        Paul (Zack's Dad)

 

Stephen started his routine to music with some excellent finger ring manipulation showing Stephen’s ability of sleight of hand. Stephen followed with a short story about ‘Silly Tom Thumb’ where his fingers and thumbs kept disappearing and reappearing. Again Stephen showed of some great effects just with his hands before challenging everyone to a test that of course only Stephen could do. Simon Croft was handed Stephen’s watch and asked to set it to any particular time. Simon grabbed hold of Stephen’s wrist and squeezed whilst announcing he had set the watch to 8 o’clock. When he released Stephen’s wrist there was an impression of a clock face with 8 o’clock being shown. Very clever. Stephen performed a paper tear routine and a fun rope routine before finishing with a lovely unequal rope routine to music. A well rehearsed performance.

The review for the 1st time I won Cabaret Magician of the year for 2008. Reported by Nick Barnes, and published in ‘The Magi’ magazine.

 

Stephen Ablett opened with a thimble routine; they came, went, changed colour, just about everything. It was fast and well pattered. Next came a routine with a wedding ring. It too moved from hand to hand at speed, came on and off a ribbon much to the delight of the audience. His fork bending routine convincing a helper that he had done it with the power of his mind was quite unbelievable. All I can say, Stephen started where Uri Geller left off!

Close Up MagicI just wanted to say thanks for giving Jack an amazing birthday party. It was lovely to see him and everyone else having such a good time and I really appreciated all the little touches you added like getting everyone together for a group photo at the end, making balloon animals for everyone while they were eating and giving Jack a go on the microphone at the end. The games at the end were hilarious, everyone was laughing and having such a good time, I'm so pleased my little man and all his friends had such a good day. Thanks again and I'll be recommending you every chance I get.        Ben (Jack's Dad)

  

Thanks Stephen. We thought the party went really well and all the children (and adults!) enjoyed it very much – especially William. We had lots of comments on how good you were and lots of people asked where we found you! Thanks again for making William’s day so special.        Kate (William's Mum)

  

Close 1Thank you too for putting on a great show - Joshua and his friends really enjoyed it, and we've been treated to a number of Joshua's own magic tricks since!! Look forward to booking you again soon...!        Mark (Joshua's Dad)

 

Many thanks for providing the children & the adults with great entertainment on Saturday. Everyone had a superb time and a lot of it was down to you. I will certainly write a review for you and if I can find any clear photos I will email them across once I have managed to have a look through them, although I don’t think we got many as we were all engrossed in your show and forgot about the camera! Many thanks once again for making my daughter’s party a memorable occasion.        Lisa (Neve's Mum)
