Question ID: 530117
I seen a magician at a fund raising banquet 2 years ago in London and
I'd like to engange his services for my wifes 40th. I vividly remember
a trick he did with a scratch card where he predicted the numbers I
thought of, in fact i still have it in my wallet! From memory he had a
London accent and also looked like Chris Evans the TV presenter. I
have looked at this site but I couldnt find
him there. Anybody know who this guy is? I'd appreciate any help.

Hi charlesjones,

I was going to post this as a request for clarification first,
however, I found a picture of Chris Evans the TV presenter, and read a
description of his close-up table tricks and decided this guy is "the
one."  If not, I'd be very surprised.

Noel Qualter - pics
B & W:
These pages have good pictures of him...."Who is Noel Qualter? 
London-based table/close-up magician Noel Qualter performs at
corporate events, weddings, product launches, balls and banquets, in
fact, anywhere where the ice needs to be broken. Noel works all over
the UK and internationally for corporate and private clients..."

A comparison picture - Chris Evans:
Black glasses, hair color, facial features, he's nearly a double for Chris Evans!

Here's the page that describes his "close up table" act:

Table Magician
Some of the routines Noel likes to perform are pushing a bottle
through someone's chest (nobody ever presses charges!), predicting
numbers just thought of on a scratch card and a signed bank note
appears in a locked box that has been on the table from the beginning.

Contact information is available on the contact page.  If by any
chance this is not him, let me know and I will have this Answer

well, just in case:
on some pictures I have found from Chris Evans, the guy seems to look
like "Kevin James" who is kind of a famous magician, he s coperforming
in las vegas
If you're looking for a local guy, it's likely not to be him ?
don't you have other deails to share ? what was that banquet exactly,

Hello, the magician I seen was not from Las Vegas. I assume he is from
London, UK area.

I remember that he had ginger hair, black glasses, he did great card
manipulations and his last trick was a card ending up in a locked box.
I do recall him saying that he was off to perform in Dubai the week

It was an NHS Fundraising banquet in Windsor, UK.
