James Tomlinson

James started as an amateur magician at Houdini's Magic Bar in Broadstairs, moving on from there after more than 3 successful years, winning awards and earning a place on the first committee for the Black Card Club.

James is now a Member of The Magic Circle and has performed as a close-up and parlour magician at multiple venues across Kent and London, known for his sleight of hand skills with playing cards, coins and even a Rubik's cube.

As well as working hard at these technical abilities, he has spent years developing his psychological skills, which have featured in his sold out shows in Canterbury and Broadstairs, including "The Mind Disturbed" and "James Tomlinson's Mentalism Evening". James can reveal your deepest thoughts, influence choices and will even hypnotise willing members of the audience. This set of skills has led to perhaps James' most well known demonstration - Russian roulette with staple guns.

James performed a show over zoom for our son’s 11th birthday. I wasn’t sure how effective this format would be, but it was absolutely brilliant! Lots of gasps of amazement our side and the birthday boy was thrilled. James is charismatic and extremely talented. I would highly recommend booking him for any event. It made a lockdown birthday very special!
