Meet Fred

Meet Fred

‘Fred in the Shed’ was founded in 2002 and his inimitable and energetic approach amuses adults and children alike.

Having spent his late teens and early twenties learning his trade working as part of the entertainments team for Haven holidays; followed by a brief spell in the world of IT, sales and marketing; Dan Hudson (aka “Fred”) decided to channel his talent for engaging with and entertaining others into his own business. Developing his own unique style of magical mayhem for the fun-loving young at hearts, he has entertained at thousands of events ranging from birthday parties to weddings and corporate fun days to team building events.

Dan has been a member of the Home Counties Magic Society since founding Fred in the Shed in 2002 and has recently been voted the Close Up Magician of the Year he successfully auditioned for the prestigious magical society, The Magic Circle in 2008.

When not entertaining, Dan is a family man with a wife and three young sons – all of whom are already displaying their father’s talent for comedy-timing and mischief!

Fred’s alterego, Dan Hudson, is a close-up magician, performing his craft at weddings, parties and corporate events on a regular basis. Recently he has joined forces with a fellow magician and member of The Magic Circle to form comedy double act ‘Hudson and Gallimore – comedy paparazzi with a magical twist’, for further information click here.
