'One of the finest magicians I have ever seen' - Sir Roger Moore


Edward Hilsum was voted 'Stage Magician of the Year 2018’ by The Magic Circle, ‘British Champion of Magic’ by the International Brotherhood of Magicians and 'International Rising Star of Magic’ by the renowned Magicana organisation. Edward’s performances feature ground-breaking magic, presented in a refreshingly contemporary style. In 2020, Edward completed an unprecedented hat-trick by becoming the first person to win all three of The Magic Circle’s competitions and more incredibly, to hold all three titles at the same time!
