The most popular party options are listed and explained below.

Ari understands that each and every party is different depending on the age of the birthday child.  Ari carefully considers the age range of the children in the audience and ensures he selects appropriate props, tricks, magic and illusions to perform to ensure all children are fully engaged and entertained at all times.


Each and every option below can be tailored to suit the age ranges from 3-8 (the 'curious age of innocence') or 9-13 years old ('the age of reason').

Children from 14+ these days will be more happy to have an intimate close up show for them and their friends with material taken from Ari's professional magic repertoire.

Ari has been entertaining with magic for most of his life. So you can be assured that you are not hiring a part time student or children's entertainer to just show a few tricks but have confidence that Ari will present modern magic in an extremely entertaining way.

Add an Illusion: Birthday Child is the star!

After the magic show and while everyone is eating Ari can set up a special illusion to perform with the birtdhay child making them the star of the show. The two latest favourites are a wrist chopper illusion or a chair suspension / levitation illusion. Ari will talk this through with you and the birthday child before the performance. (For the younger children the wrist chopper is performed as an invention rather than a "wrist chopper".)

Arrival and set up

Ari will always arrive between 30mins to an hour early to set up the amazing magic show and meet with the birthday child prior to all the guests arriving.  This is so you get the most value for your money.  The time you pay is only for performance time and not wasted on setting up as many children's entertainers sometimes do.
