It’s always nice when someone says “Thank You!”

A room full of busy (stressed) parents and kids was transfixed in seconds when Colin started! A brilliant performance that had everyone taking part and most important all the kids sat down and loving it! ( we have all been to parties when the kids aren’t interested) but Colin had them joining in and his magic was perfectly crafted for kids and had many a jaw dropped with his colouring book trick!
The puppets are brilliant too! With Colin’s craft really coming to light and proving that a great entertainer can keep a room full of iPad generation kids happy!
We will be booking him for many years to come!

Colin and his puppet sidekicks entertained 25 5yr olds completely for 2hrs. They were enthralled and completely engaged with the magic tricks, games and jokes. Absolutely fantastic from the point of booking to the end of the party. A very happy birthday boy!

Hired Colin for my daughters joint fifth birthday. It was amazing the children had so much fun and he kept them totally engaged for the entire time. Lots of messages after saying what a great magician

Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant!! Colin kept 40 reception and year one children (not to mention their parents!) entertained for a full 2 hours. The laughter and squeals of delight were almost tangible! I’ve had lots of lovely texts from parents saying how much fun their children had and how fab the magician was! I would recommend him to anyone – he made my son’s 6th birthday really special! Thank you!!

Absolutely fantastic! I booked Colin for my two daughters birthday 5th and 6th birthday party and I couldn’t ask for more! He was great in the lead up, easy to contact and very accommodating. On the day he arrived in plenty of time and was fully prepared. He kept thirty 5 & 6 year olds thoroughly entertained for the whole 2 hours and I have never heard so much laughter from one room, even the adults sat and watched the whole show and were kept entertained! This was by far the children’s best party and also the most stress free party I have ever done! I can’t thank Colin enough and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a fun packed party! Thank you!

A fabulous show – kept 30 year one children very entertained. Colin has done 2 parties for us over the years and has been very professionally and reliable both times. Will be booking again.

My daughter had Colin and Snot the dragon for her 5th birthday party on 30/1/16- her and all her friends absolutely loved them from start to finish. He kept 32 children transfixed and hearing them all laughing made all the parents smile. She has asked for Colin for her 6th birthday party already!! Would definitely recommend and had some lovely messages saying how much her friends enjoyed her party. Took all the stress away for me and my husband! Thanks Colin.

We would highly recommend Colin Dymond, magician and ventriloquist, for children’s parties. Very entertaining, good rapport with all of the children and suitable for all ages – and the adults loved the show too! Thanks again.

I saw Colin performing at Cheltenham racecourse and instantly went on to book him for my daughter’s 5th birthday party on 23rd December last year. He was absolutely fantastic! All 20 children were roaring with laughter and the adults too! One of the mums turned to me during the performance and said “OMG, he is sooo funny!!” My daughter was so delighted – so much so that we took her to see him at the racecourse again on New Years Day and a few of her little friends from her party also had the same idea! I would highly recommend. Great value for excellent entertainment all round.

Fantastic show! We hired Colin and Snot the Dragon for a 5th birthday party, the children were captivated and roared with laughter as did the grown ups.
Many Thanks

Colin used great skill and a wealth of magic to engage and fascinate 30 adults aged 19 to 84 at The Puppet Company Christmas party 2015.
He is funny, clever, very confident but most of all professional. I can recommend him unconditionally – and I still can not work out how he did the rope trick!
Peter Lockey MD 2015

We booked the show for our Daughters 6th birthday party and have to say it was great from start to finish. Colin engaged brilliantly with the children and had fun with the adults too. The children were mesmorised with the magic done and all loved the ventriloquism acts. Colin kept the children engaged and involved throughout making the party a huge success!! I would recommend him to anyone who’s looking to make a birthday special for their own children, we certainly thought it was!

Kelly December 2015

Colin and his puppets had all the kids howling with laughter and kept their attention for the whole show – a great success. Thank you!

Faye November 2015

Another fantastic children’s show. The children were entertained from start to finish. The parents all commented on a fantastic show and the children were buzzing about it, especially snot the dragon. I would always choose Colin for my children’s entertainer. A very professional and entertaining show that keeps the children enthralled throughout the show. Thank you and look forward to seeing you again.

Tessa Sep 2015

A fantastic show, very professional and current. My little boy was in his element with the great interaction, Colin made everyone feel welcome and engaged.

Lisa, September 2015

I couldn’t recommend Colin’s magic party enough, from start to finish he held the attention of all the children whose laughter and delight made the show as much a treat for the adults as the children.Linda, Cheltenham, Jan 2014

Time again Colin has delivered an amazing show. The children thoroughly enjoyed it and were captivated by Colin and his ‘co-stars’ for the duration of the show. They were able to talk about it to other children and their families afterwards and respond to what they saw – fantastic as always, thank you.

We could not be more delighted with Colin, Nigel the dragon and friends, they made the Nelson Trust’s Recovery Community Christmas Party magical for the children and adults alike. We intend to make the party featuring Ace of Diamonds Magic Company an annual event.

Sarah Frost, Dec 2013.

I originally booked without having seen the performance before and without any recommendation. I was extremely pleased with the show, it was very professional, involved many of the audience and everyone said how much they enjoyed it.
Many thanks and I will have no hesitation in recommending you to others.

Martin Pettit, June 2013

52 Year 2 children ( and the staff and parent helpers) all thoroughly enjoyed the show this afternoon! The children were enraptured by the magic tricks and puppets and were kept entertained the whole time. Worth every penny and would definitely recommend for children’s parties or schools. Thank you so much for making our Leaver’s party so special!

My daughter’s large gang of five-year-old friends thought the show was absolutely hilarious – they adored SNOT and the other puppets and I’ve been accosted many times in the playground this week by other parents telling me that their children haven’t stopped talking about it. My mum and I loved the magic – brought back memories of the magic shows my late dad did at my own parties as a child.

Lucy Robinson, May 2013

A massive thank you, the girls, the children and all the adults loved your performance. It was a special family day for us and your show was a key part in making the day a success, I have no doubt that we will ask you to provide entertainment at another party. I am so glad my friend recommended you to us!

Lisa Wooldridge,  May 2013

Anyone who can keep 40+ children transfixed for 2 hours is amazing in my eyes!!!!!! It was a brilliant show thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Sarah Powell, May 2013.

Thank you for giving our daughter such an amazing birthday party. You had all the children laughing from the very beginning. You and Sir Nigel were a huge hit!

Rebecca Washbrooke, April 2013

We chose The Ace of Diamonds Magic Show for our sons 4th Birthday party, as we saw Colin at a friends birthday party about a year ago and we were so impressed with the show. Our 4 year old son smiled and laughed from the start to the finish of the 2 hours show, and I am sure he will have great memories from it. Not only did the children enjoy it but the adults did too. I have recieved many comments from the other parents what a great time their children had!!! I would no doubt recommend The Ace of Diamonds Magic Company a great time was had by all and I am sure we will use them again in the future. Thank you Colin & Co x

Tracey Angell, Feb 2013.

After having troubles firstly finding a hall and then an entertainer for my children’s party, I was about to give up in dispair….. However on being told about Snot the dragon everything seemed back on track. We booked the ace of diamond magic company just over 2 weeks before the event, the invitations were sent out to us and everything ran very SMOOTHLY, until the actual day when the entertainment was EXCEPTIONAL. Thank you very much for making my children’s birthday so wonderful. (Martha was 6 and Hugo 4).

Kathryn Danks, Feb 2013

Colin was a an absolute star and made our wedding very special, helping me create the ultimate surprise to the bride – bring her childhood puppet back to life. The idea was a real success. Thank you. Colin was a pleasure to work with, listened to my requirements and achieved the unique puppet voice.
