"This is exactly what you want a Gothic magician to be - dark, mysterious and completely absorbing".  Reece Shearsmith - Number Nine and The League Of Gentlemen

Thank you for a lovely evening. It takes some skill to enthral such an intimate live audience and you accomplished this so well in the comfy confines of Peppers." Maggie and Ron

"I experienced the show a few weeks ago at the Leicester Guildhall and was amazed at the reactions from the audience. As Magicians, we can use patter to entertain the audience. Nick has developed a special skill set that blends Magic and Mentalism with the age old art of story-telling that truly engages the audience and elevates the performance to a higher level". Paul Sharp, President Derby Magic Circle

Fun, entertaining and at the same time slightly disconcerting. John Inverdale, BBC Radio & TV Sport

We were very happy with Nick Brunger's 'Tales from the Darker Side' . Nick's gift as a magician, illusionist and story teller had everyone in the room on the edge of their seats. Very entertaining and utterly compelling!! We'll definitively have him back! Collin Baxter, Arundel Jailhouse

Just to say how much we both enjoyed your performance in Lincoln last night. Superbly presented, we never know what was coming next. Wishing you every success for future performances. Peter and Caroline White

I have had the pleasure of seeing Nick work many times in both intimate venues of 30-40 people and on stage to much larger audiences. Nick takes the art of astonishment to a new level. His calm laid back manner fits perfectly with his contemporary style of deception. Nicks performances aren't merely demonstrations of skill, they are magical experiences that will stay with you for years to come. They say the measure of a good performer is the effect he/she has on the audiences for whom they work. Taking this into account Nick Brunger is definitely one of the best among us. Benson Black, International Champion of Magic

What can I say? You did a GREAT job last night. My husband, sitting in the circle, thought you were superb! Veronica Capaldi

Just wanted to say a massive thank you again. You were fantastic! Sitting in that room with you was one of the most surreal but enjoyable moments I have had. Laura Baxendale, Rapport Events Limited

The audience here tonight were thrilled with the performance. We are all in awe of how Nick achieves his magical mind reading I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a spooky night's entertainment. Anita Spencer of Bakewell Old House Museum

A huge thank you for doing Tarot card readings at my party last Saturday. Everyone was so impressed with your readings and there was a huge queue for you all evening . . . it really helped make my party a fantastic success. Libba Jones

Thanks for one of the best lectures I have seen in years. Every one commented on the skill and quality of your highly polished performance. The props you used were superb. I hope it is not too long until we see you again. Bernard Visgandis, Coventry Magic Circle

Just a note to thank you for your input into the gala dinner at Wollaton Hall. It was a magical night in every way. Martin Aragon of Headway

Thank you for providing your wonderful table magic at this year’s Diamond and Tiara Ball  Portland College

Thank you for so ably entertaining us . . . . you successfully brought a good evening to a first-class conclusion by providing a stimulating, thought provoking and enjoyable performance. I am still wondering how you did that trick with the lottery numbers Bruce Liddle, Rotary Club of Beeston

I first found Nick on YouTube performing his Tales from the Darker Side cabaret.  We decided to book Nick and I have to say we were not disappointed to say the least.  Nick has a great storytelling style, was totally convincing and a delight to talk to afterwards.  If anyone is think of booking Nick and wants a touch of the darker side then look no further. Don Hardy, Macabre Magic

You gave us such an entertaining evening. The guests were thoroughly involved throughout the evening and the mind reading created a great deal of hilarity  Betty Cox

A night in the company of Dr Nicholas Grimoire will allow you to reflect and examine your inner self and more significantly your own beliefs. Stories will be told that explore some dark aspects of the species we call humans. What was the outcome of a pandemic outbreak of influenza now largely forgotten veiled by the passage of time? How do horror writers fuel their imagination? Do antiquities hold vibrations of the past and reveal their inner secrets with gentle coaxing? All of these conundrums will be answered and more. Graham Harper, President Nottingham Guild of Magicians

Dr Grimoire's dastardly and spooky walk around the town was like no other - gripped both locals and visitors alike with a mix of local history and magic and illusion. Fiona Walker - Llandovery Sheep Fair

"Halloween at Picton Castle was utterly brilliant! Clearly a lot of effort had gone into making the place a really fun and interactive day for children. We went with a nearly 6 yr old and a 2 year old. They both loved it! We did the spooky castle tour which was again really well done and good fun. Some children were quite scared on the tour - a lot of it was in darkness or very partial light. Overall the castle had gone to great lengths to make this a really fun day for kids." Review of Picton Castle Halloween event 2015 on Trip Advisor

"Went on the Halloween Tour and was great. Different times to accommodate children and the tour really captured the event. Lights down low, creepy horror stories whilst at the same time the guide providing the history of the house." Review of Newton House Ghost Walks 2015 on Trip Advisor
