Mr Merlin – a winner of the coveted ‘UK Children’s Entertainer Of The Year’, has been a full time professional children’s entertainer since 1994. Even before then he worked on the entertainments teams at Pontins and Haven. He ran a children’s entertainment club with (on occasions) 100+ children for 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening. This gave him lots of experience and many of the skills he uses today. He then went on to become the entertainments manager on holiday parks in Christchurch and New Milton responsible for entertaining the whole family. It was whilst on these parks that he developed his adult comedy-magic cabaret act, became proficient at close-up magic and now wows audiences all over the world. As well as perform, he also teaches too in a magic workshop for older children.
