Who is she?
Fay Presto is arguably Britain’s premier close-up magician. Voted The Magic Circle Close-up Magician of the Year 2012 and a former Tatler ‘Party Entertainer of the Year’ Fay has been personally requested to entertain HM The Queen on no less than six occasions, as well as performing for every other senior member of the Royal family. A Gold Star Member of The Inner Magic Circle, her powerful personality-based magic and ability to connect with an audience has set a standard within the magic industry.
In the world of show-business Fay has performed for the likes of Sting, Madonna, Elton John, Camilla Parker-Bowles, Rod Stewart, Dustin Hoffman and Eric Clapton to name but a few. Her television work has included ‘Talking Telephone Numbers’, Paul Daniels’ Magic Show ‘Secrets’, Gae Byrne’s ‘The Late Late Show’, John Lenahan’s ‘Stuff The White Rabbit’, ‘This Morning’, ‘James Whale’, ‘Trick on 2’ and BBC’s ‘History of Magic’ series (2004).
The ’40 Minutes’ documentary ‘Illusions of Grandeur’ showing Fay in all aspects of her home and professional life, produced the most positive response that the BBC has ever had from the public and is considered one of the best ever in the series. It has been repeated twice and shown everywhere from Europe to Australia.
More recently, Fay Presto was featured alongside top American illusionist David Copperfield on CNN International’s ‘Quest for Magic’.
