What the bookers say
“Thank you for bringing such an engaging & enchanting performance to Hay”
Sophie Lording, Hay On Wye Festival 2010

Paul Kieve’s ‘Hocus Pocus’ show was one of the highlights of our festival. A packed auditorium was spellbound not only by his magic tricks but by the stories he wove round them about the old magicians who had created the illusions. For weeks afterwards, both adults and children have come up to me to ask, “How did he do that?” Even though I was sitting at the side of the stage, I couldn’t tell! Paul was utterly charming to work with and extremely professional. If you can get to see him or book him for your own event, do it – you’ll be in for a treat.
