Cambridgeshire Magician Tj Shoesmith has recently appeared on local media after his win at the Magic Circle Close Up Magician of the Year Competition.

Tj grew up in the area before leaving for university, he now works as a Cambridgeshire Magician in and around the area at many corporate and private functions.

He appeared on Anglia ITV news after winning his win. He has also been interviewed by Sue Dougan on BBC radio Cambridgeshire and Cambridge Community Radio 105.


As a teenager, he was a member the local Cambridgeshire magic club and performed at many of the local theatres and comedy clubs. He appeared at the Mumford, ADC and Arts Theatres, both as a magician and an actor.

I always think of myself as a Cambridgeshire Magician first and foremost. I love coming back to Cambridge to perform at colleges, private parties, corporate events and clubs. The Live Hustle is a particular favourite, where the audience is given fake money and we win it back by scams, bar bets and other nefarious schemes!

Tj has toured as half of Devious Minds throughout the County, including visits to Bythorn, Haddenham, Upwood and Cottenham. Devious Minds is a Comedy Magic and Mindreading show which has toured the length of the country including the Edinburgh Festival.

Tj started as a Cambridgeshire magician many years ago when he joined the Pentacle Club while at school. At the time the club used to meet monthly at Fitzwilliam and produces many magicians Cambridge can be proud of.

Tj has worked at many of the Counties great hotels, including Quy Mill Hotel, The Felix Hotel, 12a Market Hill, Sheene Mill, Haycock Hotel and Mendi’s in Wisbech.

He has also worked at many of the Universities including St Johns College, Churchill, Homerton and the Saltmarsh Room Trinity. He has also worked as a Cambridgeshire magician at Angelsa Abbey.

From those beginnings, as a Cambridge Magician, he has gone on to receive numerous awards and recognition, including winning the International Brotherhood of Magicians Championship, IBM’s award for Originality, and membership of London’s Inner Magic Circle.
