Private, public and corporate events

HM The Queen, including at her private Diamond Jubilee celebration attended by royalty from around the world, HRH The Prince of Wales, Professor Stephen Hawking, Sir Paul McCartney, Sting and thousands more, in over thirty five countries, have been delighted by Richard’s magic.

From a London black cab to Buckingham Palace

Venues range from The Magic Castle in Hollywood to Buckingham Palace. From The Orient Express, to the back of a black cab driving around London. Richard is also a resident magician at Wembley Stadium, where he has been performing to VIPs for over ten years. One of the strengths of close-up magic is its flexibility and you can be sure Richard has performed in almost every environment, for every type of occasion.

World champion Entertainer

Richard McDougall is a former World Open Champion for Close Up Magic, and a Gold Star Member of the Inner Magic Circle. A magician skilful enough to dumbfound the keenest eye where the emphasis is on the guests’ enjoyment, and not merely ‘fooling’ them.

Richard is well-placed to suggest the best format to create maximum entertainment for guests, so please feel free to discuss this prior to your event.
