Can anyone suggest a good magician?

I'm looking for a good magician to perform in my house to 10-12 of us for my dad's 80th birthday in November. When I do an internet search on magician and Manchester, there's more magicians than you can shake a stick (wand?) at. I want someone fun who doesn't just do card tricks. But not so good tha...

On holiday in Hungary, perusing the menu in a chinese restaurant we found "whole fish in the shape of a squirrel". I still regret not splashing out on that one, but it was rather pricey.

I went there for lunch and quite liked the feel of the place but was disappointed with the food.
