SEAN HEYDON has been working in some of the worlds most prestigious venues for A-list celebrities and blue chip companies for over ten years now with his unique style of madcap comedy and fascinating magic. With many television credits to his name (including acting as the resident illusionist on the Paul O'Grady Show, Channel 4), Heydon is also in constant demand across the BBC Radio network as a special guest. In 2009 he had his own regular 30 minute show called ‘Magic On The Wireless’, which consisted of interactive mind reading magic and comedy with listeners – this was aired live across four stations: BBC Radio Northampton, BBC Radio Leicester, BBC Radio Coventry & Warwickshire and Harborough FM.
A multi-award winning entertainer by 2009, Heydon beat off the cream of British entertainment talent to win the coveted ‘Specialty Act of the Year’ award as voted for by some of the finest Agents and Bookers in the country. Furthermore, Heydon is regarded as one of Europe’s leading and unrivalled close-up magicians and has even consulted alongside world renowned personality Anthony Robbins, bringing a creative edge to business conferences using magic as a metaphor for business strategising.
Billed as ‘The Alternative Magician’, he performs astounding and quite literally breath taking illusions and stunts in a unique comical style that audiences have never seen before, but will remember for the rest of their lives.
