Description :

Hello. I’m Rob Hutchinson, a magician based in Ripon but available to perform all around Harrogate & District, Yorkshire and beyond.

A member of the Harrogate Society of Magicians, I’m a close-up and stage entertainer, having appeared at the Frazer Theatre (during Knaresborough’s annual FEVA festival). I’ve also performed magic for local organisations as varied as Alfred Hymas Ltd and Easy Learning Shop in Ripon, and have entertained cast members of ITV’s ever-popular Emmerdale.

‘You were absolutely brilliant, Rob! I’m still trying to figure out some of those card tricks. Genuinely fantastic.’ Chris Livesey (Wedding, Ripon Spa Hotel)

‘Rob kept 25 2-8 year olds entertained for two hours which is magic in itself! The magic was brilliant, it kept the children and adults guessing long after the party. Will definitely hire again. Thank you Rob.’ Philippa Di Silvestro

As a non-believer of magic, I was left mind blown by the tricks of Rob. Lovely friendly guy & great tricks. Definitely recommend him Michael de Bond

Rob’s magic was so amazing. No idea how he does it.’ Tracey Cunningham (Guest at a 60th birthday party))

Magic, which encompasses the subgenres of illusion, stage magic, and close up magic, among others, is a performing art in which audiences are entertained by tricks, effects, or illusions of seemingly impossible feats, using natural means. It is to be distinguished from paranormal magic which are effects claimed to be created through supernatural means. It is one of the oldest performing arts in the world.

Modern entertainment magic, as pioneered by 19th-century magician Jean-Eugène Robert-Houdin, has become a popular theatrical art form. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, magicians such as Maskelyne and Devant, Howard Thurston, Harry Kellar, and Harry Houdini achieved widespread commercial success during what has become known as “the Golden Age of Magic. During this period, performance magic became a staple of Broadway theatre, vaudeville, and music halls. Magic retained its popularity in the television age, with magicians such as Paul Daniels, David Copperfield, Doug Henning, Penn & Teller, David Blaine, and Derren Brown modernizing the art form.

The world’s largest-selling publication for magicians, Magic magazine, curated a list of the “100 most influential magicians of the 20th century” to have contributed to the modern development of the art of magic. According to the magician-culled list titled “Those Who Most Affected The Art in America,” Houdini holds the first rank. Then, in decreasing order, Dai Vernon, David Copperfield, Harry Blackstone, Doug Henning, Tarbell, Cardini, Mark Wilson, Siegfried and Roy, and finally Thurston at number 10.
