Adding a touch of Rat-Pack cool to parties, weddings & events in and around London


Close-Up Magician for hire

Are you thinking of hiring a Magician for your upcoming wedding, party or event? A little unsure what to expect? Let me help! A professional entertainer  or top class Magician should be able to adapt his

performance to the clients needs and not only relax and entertain the guests but allow the host to enjoy things too.

My name is Darren Whichello, AKA The Rat-Pack Magician. I was personally trained by Magic Circle President, Jack Delvin and have performed on stage at The Magic Circle Theatre, without a doubt the most prestigious magic venue in the world! I have been a professional Magician for over a decade now and am very versatile. So, whether you need me to greet guests as they arrive, mingle as the party flows or go around the tables during dinner, you can rest assured that all your guests will have a magical time which they will remember and talk about for years to come!

I would describe my style of magic as fast and fun yet unobtrusive! I understand that I am not the only reason everybody is at the party so I try not to dominate the room but instead mingle with the guests a few at a time, making them feel good, laughing, joking and hopefully amazing them too! If you need something a little bigger that is fine too, I can perform something special for a guest of honour or top table if required or even entertain the entire room.

I have performed for all sorts of clients in all sorts of locations and am equally at ease in top venues like Claridges Hotel, The Savoy, The Hurlingham Club or Heaver Castle as I am entertaining guests in restaurants, bars, offices as well as private homes and gardens too. 

A top class Close-Up Magician at your party, wedding or event leaves wonderful memories which will stay with your guests for years to come!


All my routines are both quickfire and fun. I try to involve as many people as possible and usually leave them laughing and most of the time cheering and clapping too!

Imagine the impact of a cool professional Close-Up Magician at your Cocktail or Dinner party? Or if you are planning something a little larger, why not have one of the best Magicians in London mingle with your guests and add a touch or Rat-Pack Cool!  

Everyone loves a Christmas party so why not make yours an extra cool Yule with a great Christmas party Magician! Whether your Christmas bash is in a hotel, bar, restaurant, home or even in the office I can conjure up some magic and help get everyone in the mood for festive fun!

Weddings are my favourite! But I'm sure you will agree there can sometimes be a slight lull just after the service? A quality wedding Magician at your celebrations will not only give your guests something extra to talk about, he will help break the ice between people who might not be aquatinted and and get them mingling and laughing together too! If you prefer, I could stroll around the tables before, during or after the Wedding Breakfast or even entertain the guests in the evening.

I am available to hire for parties, weddings or corporate events, to mingle with guests or go around the tables. In fact, any occasion where a touch of magic will make things special.


Children's parties are not really my thing but I do always have a few cool tricks to show to any youngsters who may be attending the events I'm booked for. A normal booking is for two hours but if you want me for more or less time that is fine and I am more than happy to have a chat to discuss your needs.

I am based in South East London but am happy travelling anywhere in Central London, Greater London as well as much of Kent & Essex and parts of Surrey, Sussex & Hertfordshire too. If you are outside these areas please feel free to contact me to see what we can arrange.

​I know how annoying it is when entertainers or companies do not list prices. So, unlike all my competitors you can find all of my fees listed at the bottom of the page.

"Well, not really sure what to say! Many people said you were the best  

 Close-Up Magician and the magic was the best they had seen! Two professional croupiers were amazed at your bedside manner with strangers you had never met before. Sharron and I were blown away with the tricks and the banter. I would definitely ​recommend you as a Magician to get the group of people revved up and ready for the big dinner speeches. We know six people who are going to use your services next year for party's and weddings. Thank you for a wonderful show, which just made a magical day come true!"
