Romany is one of Britain’s favourite stage magicians & mistress of ceremonies.
Despite being completely stage-struck as a child, Romany’s well meaning parents encouraged her away from stage school towards university and a ‘proper job’. She graduated with a BA Hons in English/Italian Literature, got that ‘proper job’ complete with company car and pension scheme and managed 6 years of golden handcuffs before escaping to join the Cobble Comedy Company as a knife throwing, fire juggling street performer. She then flew off to study MAGIC in Las Vegas with the best magicians of the world. Many, many shows later, Romany became the first and only woman ever to be named Magic Circle Stage Magician of the Year, was awarded the International Brotherhood of Magician British Shield for Most Entertaining Stage Act and received the highest possible honour from the Magic Circle i.e. the degree of ‘Member of the Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star for Performance’.
She was chosen to entertain Her Majesty the Queen and family for her 80th Birthday celebration and has entertained such luminaries as Dame Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Mick Jagger, lovely Christopher Biggins, the Queen of Jordan and a Princess in Bangkok whose name no one can remember!
In 2011, Romany competed in Las Vegas against international magic champions in the World Magic Championships, watched by 1000 top magicians. She was voted the winnerby this 1000 strong audience and won the prestigious Golden Lion Award presented by Siegfried & Roy.
After being tied up by Jonathan Ross on Fool Us with Penn & Teller on ITV, Romany was invited to headline as a guest entertainer on luxury cruise-liners. She now spends a third of the year cruising and the rest of the year entertaining in theatres & private/corporate events in England.Read more

Magic Circle Stage Magician of the Year.
Awarded Prestigious Inner Magic Circle Gold Star
“She had us mesmerised with an act which is one minute hysterically funny and the next so enthralling you could hear a pin drop.”
“…a flamboyant hybrid of Bette Midler and Mary Poppins… a fascinating razzle dazzle mix of magic, comedy and intelligent glamour…”
“Romany can literally light up a room with her original and theatrical act that mixes the glamour of a Follies Bergere showgirl with a dry and brilliantly timed wit in a routine involving two hapless gentlemen from the audience. Hysterical.”
