ABOUT SAM FITTON
Hi! I’m Sam Fitton, National award winning magician & speaker based in Stockport near Manchester.
Growing up in Ramsbottom I began my performing career at the Red Hall Hotel, where I landed my first professional booking at the age of 14. I’d had an interest in magic since I was a child but it wasn’t until a chance meeting with another magician whilst on the way to have eye surgery that I started to learn the real tricks of the trade.
After leaving St Gabriel’s High School, I was destined to be a science geek, over achieving in every academic subject. I went on to study at Holy Cross College before reading Biology at Lancaster University. During this time I realised what I really wanted to do with my life. Perform. So I joined the Police (don’t ask!)
But after two years I’d put it off long enough and so I took the plunge and set up business full time as ‘Sam Fitton – Magician’ based here in Manchester.
Fast forward to present day & I’m proud to have won 4 regional awards, a national award, entertained dozens of celebrity clients & was even booked to perform in the Seychelles. (I know, I still pinch myself)!
In 2016 I co-wrote & directed the most successful debut show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival through PBH with business partner Aaron Calvert. ‘Mind Games’ officially ‘sold out’ as more than 5000 people came to see the show.
Since then Aaron & I have worked together on numerous TV projects through our company Lost Luggage Productions as well as produce & co-write our Edinburgh Fringe Festival shows for 2017, ‘Aaron Calvert: AWAKEN‘ & ‘A Case of Wonders‘ (by Sam Fitton) respectively.
To say I like to keep my self busy is an understatement with more than twice weekly private performances at weddings, corporate events & parties as well as consulting, writing & directing for TV & theatre.
With aspirations to play the villain in a Film or TV show, I set myself exceptionally high standards and even tougher goals. But my passion for theatre, acting, magic & performance has always seen me rise to the occasion & deliver my best .
I’m incredibly proud to have got this far, I’m excited to see what’s to come & I can’t wait to hear from you about your event.
“Sam’s a lovely guy & a great entertainer”
