Happy Birthday Rachel!



I was delighted and very flattered when Jamie and Rachel asked me to perform magic at a very important birthday bash in Nottingham recently! The venue was the fantastic Botti Di Mamma in Hockley and it definitely was a memorable and magical occasion.


Rachel’s family and close-friends were not only treated to the exquisite ambience and exceptional cuisine of this first class venue, but the talents of Nottingham musical quartet The Money ensured it truly was a fantastic evening. Jamie has known the band for many years and was delighted that they could be part of such an important event. They are always a massive hit wherever they perform!


It was a privilege to mingle with such a warm and receptive group of people, and I was also delighted to perform a little customised magic for both Rachel and her father Brian. Indeed, it was very kind of Jamie and Rachel to invest their trust in me for such a big night, and I always hope that I can repay this in my performance.


A very important occasion calls for a very talented cameraman, and Will Slater was present in order to expertly capture the proceedings. As you can appreciate from the photographs proudly displayed in this article, Will’s timing, sixth-sense and attention to detail is immaculate.


Overall, the party was a resounding success and friends and family partied well into the small hours! Happy birthday Rachel! And well done to everyone for helping to create such a tremendous occasion – I hope that you and Jamie had a great time in the USA.

Chris and Viola’s Magical Wedding at Harts Hotel

Harts Hotel offers exceptional service, cuisine and facilities in the heart of the city

It’s an idyllic early autumn day in Nottingham. The city is bathed in salubrious sunlight and the rooftops of the prestigious Park Estate glisten majestically beneath a cloudless azure sky. Standing from the vantage point of Harts Hotel’s terrace, David Fox savours the panoramic paradise before him: the calmness, the serenity, the tranquillity, and then, as if by magic: the mysteriously enchanting melodies of distant bagpipe music drifting sublimely through the lukewarm air. Chris and Viola’s wedding day revelries are just about to commence…

David was delighted when Mr and Mrs Norton asked him to entertain their guests in September 2015 at Harts Hotel in Nottingham. It is always a massive privilege, and a pleasure, to be part of such a wonderful day. Indeed, Harts Hotel is one of the most prestigious and luxurious venues in the Midlands, and has earned an exceptional reputation for fine cuisine, first class facilities, and outstanding service. This is why many of the top celebrities and entertainers such as Derren Brown choose Harts Hotel when they come to visit and perform in the Nottingham area.

Magic on the terraced area of Harts Hotel

The hotel boasts a spacious terraced area with magnificent views over the city. This is of course an ideal place for wedding day photographs, and David was very happy when Chris and Viola requested that he mingle with the guests during this period. One of the main strengths of a close-up magician like David is the capacity to perform under any conditions regardless of the weather. It was wonderful to perform card magic, illusions, mind-reading routines, and classic effects for the couple’s close family and friends. Indeed, some entertainment during this period of the wedding day helps to stimulate conversation, induce laughter, and set a very positive tone for the breakfast to follow.

Whatever the weather. Card magic always goes down well with guests.

David Fox will always customise and adapt his performance depending on the wedding day schedule. It was a real pleasure to be asked to entertain during the early part of the evening reception immediately after the meal. Magic took place largely around the reception, upper garden, and bar areas of the hotel, where David was delighted to welcome Chris and Viola’s evening arrivals, as well as reconvene with any day guests who wanted to see more magic. Overall, it was a tremendous experience to be part of such a lovely couple’s day at Harts Hotel and to see so many beaming smiles on faces.

All age groups can enjoy David’s magic!

A rousing rendition of The Proclaimers’ anthem ‘I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)’ by the sensational Richie Muir heralded the onset of the evening festivities in the function suite. David would like to take this opportunity to once again say ‘congratulations’ to Chris and Viola and to wish them health, happiness and prosperity for many many years to come.

Magic at Stubton Hall, Newark

The majestic Stubton Hall is situated on the hinterland of Newark.

 ‘Your magic was perfect for entertaining our guests during the early part of the evening reception. Thank you so much again David.’

Leigh and Maxine Osborne, wedding, Stubton Hall, Newark, October 2015

Stubton Hall is fast becoming one of the most popular wedding venues in the East Midlands thanks to its myriad of enchanting attributes. This magnificent 19th century stately home has recently been stylishly renovated, and boasts spacious function spaces, 26 hotel rooms, and an impressive expanse of well-manicured parkland. David Fox always feels very privileged to entertain at Stubton Hall on wedding days, and a warm welcome from the exceptional events team is something he has grown fond of. For more details about the venue, and the fantastic packages on offer, contact Jessica Dewick on 01636 626187 or visit their website for more details: Stubton Hall.

David Fox’s magic is highly versatile and, regardless of the time of his performance or the weather conditions, he will blend his exquisite brand of entertainment effectively into your wedding day schedule. David was delighted to entertain guests outside during the drinks reception of Chandani and Richard’s wedding last summer. Thankfully the weather was excellent and, whilst welcome drinks and delicious canapes were savoured, David Fox amazed everyone with his rousing repertoire of reality-defying close-up routines. The magic continued throughout the wedding breakfast, and this always provides a wonderful opportunity for David to dazzle the top table with some very special wedding day magic. Indeed, bride, groom and close family do not always have an opportunity to witness the Midlands conjurer’s illusions during photograph time, but on this day some magical memories were truly created for all to cherish.

Indoors or outside, a magician of David’s experience can perform anywhere!

In October 2015, Leigh and Maxine Osborne decided to call upon David’s services immediately after the speeches until the first dance. This is an excellent period for David Fox to mingle with both day guests and evening arrivals. David happened to be performing magic at The Parlour bar/restaurant in West Bridgford, Nottingham last March on the evening when Leigh asked his best man Maxwell to assume duties for the big day! A fully customised impromptu magic illusion was created and performed by David in order to allow Leigh to amazingly pop the question to his friend! And Maxwell proudly said ‘yes’.

The guests tend to be more animated during this period, and there is normally a little background music playing when the evening arrivals start to flow in. An experienced magician like David Fox can always adapt his repertoire of magic appropriately and deliver a more up-beat performance of stunning visual illusions, quick-fire card manipulation, and sensational sleight-of-hand. This is a wonderful way to warm up the guests and get everyone in a very positive frame of mind – ready to fully enjoy the evening revelries.

The function area is a familiar local haunt for David Fox, and he has been very fortunate to have entertained guests there on numerous occasions over the past few years. It is perfect for both intimate family occasions, such as Evie’s Holy Communion Party in 2012, or larger black tie events, like PricewaterhouseCooper’s recent annual dinner in October 2015. At both events David provided a fully customised entertainment package which involved a blend of both close-up magic, table-side illusions, and a spectacular parlour show of mystery and amazement to round of the proceedings.
