Bark Review from 2017

Thank you so much for visiting our school and providing such a fantastic day of mathematics and science awe and wonder for all our children. The feedback from staff and pupils alike was incredibly positive and everyone felt that you pitched the sessions just right for each phase group. The children really enjoyed your exciting, magical, enthralling sessions and were inspired by the way you brought maths and science together in such a brilliant way. Feedback from parents and friends who attended the twilight session was also hugely positive and so thank you for a brilliant day’s contribution to our Maths and Science Week.

I just wanted to feed back to you that the teachers and children really enjoyed your science assemblies. What was said was that the children seemed to really understand the science through the demonstrations you chose and that these could be replicated easily back in class. Thank you for a great two days. Juliet, Science Leader.

Hi Tony, Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say a big thank for the Magic Maths Workshops. The sessions were wonderful entertainment with brilliant educational value. Staff in the Foundation Stage were pleased to be included in the morning show and it was differentiated perfectly. You had a fantastic rapport with staff, parents and most importantly the children!

Google Review from Jan 2018

Booked Tony for my husband’s 30th, we had a Vegas themed party. Tony was the first person I booked and was great at helping with recommendations for other bits. He was brilliant very friendly and worked so well with everyone. He even added a little balloon making at the end for the kids. Would highly recommend made the perfect addition to the party. Thank you.

Tony attended our wedding garden party and as soon as he got to our home he briefed me and integrated into the party so well, doing up close magic with the adult guests and then doing a show for the children which they loved and no one wanted him to leave. We’ve had lots of great comments from our guests and really feel like he made our party special and unique and one…

Bark Review from 2017

We hired Tony for our daughters christening yesterday, he was amazing, all of our guests found him very entertaining, it was very relaxed and we enjoyed having him there going around the tables keeping the guests amused, the kids loved it and the balloon animals at the end was a really nice touch. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Tony again and one of our guests is going to use him for her wedding! Thankyou Tony you were fab.

Bark Review from 2017

Our 60th wedding celebration was enhanced by Tony creating an additional dimension to the occasion. All ages, all guests gave us positive comments after 2 hours of table entertainment. His close-up tricks were amazing. We were particularly grateful for the time he spent with our young grandchildren (including twin boys of 6 years); they continued doing the tricks at home!
