Magician Paul Dewhurst is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne. You can hire him to perform magic at your event. He is now a north east magician specialising in close up magic, table magic, restaurant magic and wedding magic. But how did he get here? In this section you can read a little more about what has brought Paul to where he is now and where he came from before that. If you would like to know about how he can work at weddings or more about the shows on offer, check out those sections.
Born way down south in Sheffield, Yorkshire, Paul moved to the Tyne Valley when he was six years old. So he’s still a bit of a foreigner really.
Paul obtained degree in Philosophy and Politics before beginning his deep thoughts about unemployment. He was rescued from an ‘ordinary’ life by a juggler he camped next to at Glastonbury festival. This crazy gentleman inspired him to move to London and focus his life on circus skills. He worked for Air Circus, then the Oddballs Juggling company. Later he taught circus skills at The School of the Science of Acting and at Jackson’s Lane Community Centre.
Magic grabs Paul Dewhurst
A little later he met a Swedish magician, Karl Berseus (Later: Charlie Caper) shopping in Camden Town. Karl amazed and inspired Paul and a love of the Art of Magic took hold. This lead to an obsessive compulsion to carry a deck of cards at all times. He joined the Magic Circle in 2005 and began performing magic at restaurants, weddings, nightclubs and private parties.
A seasoned performer, Paul has now worked as a magician for a huge variety of audiences. Everything from corporate parties for Channel 5, to muddy crowds at Glastonbury festival.
Following his nomadic wanderings, Paul returned to Newcastle to marry a proper Geordie lass. He currently live in Fenham with their two young sons.
