He is FULL-time and a member of Leicester Magic Circle for over 20 years as well as a member of Equity, so you can be assured of the highest standards for your event. John has a real affinity for the Market Harborough area having been born and spent most his life in Leicester. John has been booked many times in Market Harborough in local venues such as The Three Swans, The Angel, Hothorpe Hall, and Kelmarsh Hall for example with great success. He has also been booked in gastro restaurants (their private party function rooms) in public houses in Market Harborough and throughout the surrounding villages, not to mention being booked many times in private houses for events.
John is sure to add that ‘wow’ factor you are looking for in a magician for your event in Market Harborough! He not only provides outstanding magic but delivers it in polished and highly entertaining ways. His performing style is witty, engaging and friendly whilst always being polite and professional. Why not see for yourself and take a look now at his professional video showreel here . You will probably notice that unlike in other magician videos, his voice is not completely or mainly edited out. This is important because when magicians’ voices are edited out, you cannot tell what they are really like and how they would come across to your guests! Hopefully in this video you will agree that in John Constantine you see a professional, well-spoken, friendly and professional magician at work.
Local Market Harborough magician
Remember that John is local, and has a real affinity and lifetime connection to your area. Living now on the edge of the Oadby/Great Glen border he is a frequent visitor to Market Harborough’s shops and cafes (Nero’s is a favourite!) and a frequent visitor to enjoy the annual Arts Fresco street event (also performed in a fund-raising event for the Fresco.)
John was born in Leicester and brought up in Stoneygate. However, his parents first settled in Northampton where many of his relatives live so when he was growing up fortnightly family visits to Northampton resulted in passing through Market Harborough (noticing the lovely old Grammar School on the way and the signposts to the famous Battle of Naseby site), hundreds of times! Fast forward many years and one of John’s first salaried positions (when he was still performing magic only semi-professionally) was… in Market Harborough! He has fond memories at lunch times of nipping into one of the local delicatessens for a ham roll or sausage roll and a little cake and eating them on fine days by the waterside. His office Christmas party lunch was always in the Three Swans Hotel. Many years later John often brought his wife and son to enjoy these things too (and the Arts Fresco event of course.) He also watched from his office the now long and well-established Market Harborough Sainsbury’s store being built block by block and brick by brick!
The Magic John brings to Market Harborough
John performs magic from the repertoires of the world’s top magicians. David Copperfield, David Blaine, Dynamo, Troy and the late Paul Daniels as well as his own original material. You and your guests are sure to find it amazing, amusing, highly entertaining and simply mind-blowing! But what is on offer is not all just about the tricks. The presentations, personality and interpersonal skills of the magician make a huge difference in how much your guests enjoy the entertainment. This is particularly so with ‘mix and mingle’ close up magic where your entertainer and guests interact together. John has a really friendly personality; he draws people together and whilst he has fun with the audience, he is also always polite and respectful.
Wedding Magic for Market Harborough
Because John has a light-entertainment approach that is witty and amusing, John is an ideal choice for your wedding. A dark and mysterious persona/mind-reader type magician may not really suit the mood for most weddings! John Constantine performs amazing magic but does it with a light touch that both amazes and amuses. John helps guests to settle into the environment and gets them talking together, breaking the ice between people who may never (or have rarely) met before. He mixes and mingles during drinks and then performs table to table during the wedding breakfast. (Other options and times are available eg during the photographs). You will hear your guests reacting loudly to the entertainment with shrieks of surprise and delight as well as lots of laughter. Additionally, John has some very special routines for you at the top table. Apart from his very best general magic, he will deliver personalised and quite touching routines for you that are certainly entertaining as well, resulting in souvenirs you are sure to keep in your wedding scrapbook.
John has been booked for many adult birthdays and wedding anniversaries in Market Harborough and Northamptonshire. From 18 to 80 and up to 90 he has done them all! From silver to ruby, to golden wedding anniversaries as well! Apart from the venues mentioned above, it is at these events where John is most commonly booked in private residencies and gets to visit very pretty and interesting local villages all around such as Great and Little Bowden, Lubbenham, others on the way to Daventry and Lutterworth.
John delivers excellent magic and mixes and mingles with your guests making them relax and feel at ease with his friendly and easy-going approach and personality. He also personalises one of his routines in a surprising way to whoever is celebrating their birthday! Ditto for the anniversary celebrating couple. Birthdays and anniversaries tend to be smaller events than weddings and therefore guests get to see and enjoy John Constantine’s entertainment up close and for longer (he does not deliver less time, he just gives more entertainment to everybody!) In addition to ‘close up’ sleight of hand magic, John also offers at these events the opportunity to see his ‘stand up’ comedy magic act (cabaret style) to top off his evening’s close up magic entertainment.

Trade Shows for Leicester and Market Harborough Companies
If you are exhibiting the no.1 thing you need in order to have a chance of receiving a return on investment is footfall. John’s magic skills are utilised to attract visitors to your stand and he then even helps qualify them (gently and subtly) for your sales team. Visitors are quickly guided towards your stand team – and held for a little while longer if all of them are busy, thereby avoiding losing potentially valuable visitors. John performs engaging, visual magic, tailored around your company’s products, services and USPs. This is an extremely rare skillset amongst magicians and delivers much greater returns for your business than food, sweets, stationery or other live entertainment such as a juggler who does not really proactively promote your business in anything like the same way or to the same degree of effectiveness.
John has worked on exhibition stands at the NEC, The King Power Stadium, The Tigers Stadium, Villa Park, Earls Court, and Excel in London. Be sure to look at his trade show page now and to contact him to enquire about how he can help your company get the most out of its exhibition.
