Alan Clarke is a renowned children's magician and entertainer for schools in County DurhamThe School Show lasts about 45 minutes and will keep a whole hall of children amused and interested for the entire duration of the show. Volunteers come and help with the tricks, but more importantly, I will make the occasion memorable for each member of the audience.

There is much laughter and many surprises along the way. The school magic show includes the story of what happened to the local bully. Or what happened to Tim who was greedy with sweets and forgot his toothbrush.

These stories are entirely in rhyme and the audience enjoy them so much they don’t realise they are learning an important lesson. Although the audience joins in with saying the magic words, I do not encourage shouting but rather focus and encourage listening skills with verbal play and tongue twisting patter.

Alan’s 40-minute magic show kept the choristers of St. Paul’s Cathedral spellbound throughout. The discerning youngsters were entertained and amazed and were left at the end of the evening wanting more. The 8–13 year olds engaged with Alan and his array of tricks. His show is visually appealing and delivered professionally. Clive Marriott (Deputy Head of St. Paul’s Choir School)

Festive Season shows are also available where the theme of the show reflects the seasonal celebration.

As a children’s entertainer for schools I have the added advantage of over 25 years’ experience as a qualified teacher and would be happy to speak to classes about magic as a hobby or answer any questions you may have.

The magic show for schools is equally popular and successful for out-of-school clubs and groups like Cub packs or Brownies. It is also a great way to raise funds for your school as part of a fundraising event or fete.

The School Show is self-contained and can be tailored to suit for any primary school age group.

Have a younger audience? No problem. I also have a special show for the pre-school age group.


The Pre-School and Playgroup Magic Show


Children's magician and entertainer for pre-schools and playgroups in County DurhamI have a 40-minute programme suitable for younger children. The magic is easily understood and my approach is gentle. Children soon understand that they will have a fun time. Colouring in a picture or washing socks by magic will delight even the youngest audience member and they will love the “naughty” antics of my puppet in his basket.

I am a not only a children’s entertainer for schools but also a qualified teacher, a natural story teller, and perform in a style that children warm to and trust.

The 40-minute magic show for pre-school children involves bright coloured magic tricks and it is guaranteed be a special event and might perhaps be the first experience of live magic for the audience.
