About Ballinger Services

If you are planning a big event or celebration and want to give your guests a real treat, a skilled magician could be just what you are looking for to make your party truly unforgettable. With over 20 years of experience dazzling audiences, I am one of the best-known professional magicians available for hire in the UK today. I’m a member of the Bristol Society and Magic and the International Brotherhood of Magicians, so when you watch me perform, or join in one of my lively and interactive teaching sessions, you know you are being entertained by someone with real mastery of his craft. I have performed at all types of functions, from engagement parties and weddings to corporate conferences, and am just as happy in front of a crowd of excited toddlers or lively teenagers as I am providing the thrills and the laughs at a seventieth birthday celebration. Whatever the occasion, my goal is always to amaze, mystify and amuse, and leave everybody feeling they have had the time of their lives. Depending on your preferences, I can perform on stage, cabaret style, or work on the floor, mingling amongst your guests and giving them a truly breath-taking close-up magical experience. Of you want to offer something a little bit different, why not book one of my magic workshops and let your guests learn a few tricks of their own during the course of the event? Whatever type of magical entertainment you’re looking for, my act will be uniquely tailored to the audience – I don’t roll out the same old routines time and time again – but I always work plenty of comedy in amongst the magic, to keep people laughing and having fun. And there’s no need to worry about your guests being singled out to generate cheap laughs: it’s a principle of mine never to make anyone feel even the slightest bit uncomfortable. If you are looking for a reliable, affordable entertainer to make your event one that your guests will never want to end, please get in touch.

Magic Lessons
Bidvine T.'s review on Mar 27, 2018

Richard came to train our team to deliver magic tricks to help us work with vulnerable children and families we work with. It was not only a good team building day but also provided great tricks, techniques and strategies to engage children and young people. We learnt a wide range of tricks, using everyday resources as well as more specific magic equipment that Richard left us with, including our own resources folder with instructions to remind us how to perform the tricks. Incredibly good value, delivered in light hearted and friendly manner. Thanks Richard!’ Dave Small, Barnado’s

Further to our telephone conversation recently, I would like to thank you very much for the help and encouragement that you gave me. After a wonderful present of lessons with you( with the idea of entertaining the grandchildren) my husband and I went away with carrier bags full of tricks that you had shown us and taught us. This year, how ever, I needed reminding about one or two of them and rang you. You could not have been more helpful, and I am now geared up to entertain the grandchildren for the second year running ! Sarah Bibra

Team B.'s review on Mar 27, 2018

Members of Congresbury Over-60’s Club enjoyed a most entertaining afternoon when Richard Ballinger gave an interesting talk on Teaching with Magic which was also full of jokes and riddles. He showed how pupils could be taught mathematics in a way that was interesting but also made them think about how problems could be solved. Members had a lot of fun solving small problems and were enthralled by the clever card tricks performed. The afternoon passed very quickly and members hope that it will not be too long before Richard will return to give another talk. The next meeting will see the return of the popular Terry Merrett-Smith who will give a talk about Frank Sinatra. Final bookings were taken for the coach trip to Stratford on Avon and members were able to take home a hot cross bun to enjoy with their tea. Congresbury Over 60’s Club

Thank you so much for the magical contribution to Fay’s party last Saturday. Fay and her friends have been talking about it and yesterday I received lots of thanks from the parents of the children who came along – they all really enjoyed themselves. A very big THANK YOU from Jane, Steve and Fay Purnell.

Team B.'s review on Mar 27, 2018

Richard has been our entertainer at the Coach House Nursery in Portishead, North Somerset, for three years. Each year with us Richard joins us for our school leavers party. At this event he arrives early to set up so that the children do then not see him and bends over backwards to make sure that things are just right and that everything is in place. When doing the show he fills the room with the children’s laughter and always left them with lots to talk to their parents about. I now book Richard that the beginning of each year to make sure that we can have him come back and join us as he now feels like part of the team. We would highly recommend Richards shows and entertainment to anyone seeking these services. He was very good with the children recognising their confidence and self-esteem thoughtout the performance. Emma Fairbrother

I just wanted to say Thank You for a super evening on New Years Eve. Your table magic left us with mouths agape and your main event was funny and magical ! I still have people now thanking me for a wonderful night, obviously a bit of credit must go to you too, lol I have already started thinking about this years New Years Eve party and it will have a lot to live up to, with you helping us getting the first one off to such a good start. Wishing you and your wife a very Happy and Prosperous New Year Ruth

Richard, I would like to thank you for the time and hospitality you gave to myself and Paul, my son-in-law, yesterday evening. I found the evening highly entertaining, educational and thoroughly enjoyable throughout. We were talking about the evening all the way home, and I cannot wait to start practicing the many tricks you taught us in the time we were with you. This was a really interesting and inspired 60th birthday present from my daughter, and I’m pleased that she came up with such a fascinating idea. Once again many thanks for your time, and I’m sure you’ll be hearing from me again, if I forgot anything you taught me, or if I want to learn more. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone wishing to learn or advance in the world of magic, as you made the whole thing “magical” even though when explained so simple for the novice to learn.
