Magicians have become one of the most popular entertainment choices for corporate events, dinner parties, birthdays and wedding receptions in recent times. They are still the first choice for kids birthday parties, but due to television shows like, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are often on the short list for more mature audiences.
Having a talented magician perform close-up magic at your table is a great experience, and one that will surely leave you wondering the mystical secrets behind the tricks.
From performing impromptu magic whilst mingling with guests, to a full-blown stage show; a good magician will have everyone at your event looking on captivated. The most challenging part is choosing the best magician for your event or party in Aldershot.
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN ALDERSHOT
Before you do anything else, take a look at the list of people coming to your event. Think about the type of event you are holding and the age ranges of guests who will be there. Having a solid idea of what your guests are expecting will help you to ask the right questions of any potential magician.
The difference between a corporate event and that of a fun party can be hugely different and you may hire the wrong type of magician if you don't research or understand your precise requirements. To just book any old magician without doing this research could be asking for trouble. An adult entertainer might perform magic that is more appropriate for a stag party or hen party than to a corporate event, or a party where kids are in attendance. It's also the case that a kid's magic show will probably not be the best thing for more mature audiences.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Parties and informal occasions are ideal for close-up magic, sleight of hand experts and street style magicians who will mix with guests while they perform. For more formal gatherings you might prefer an after dinner cabaret, stage or corporate magician.
Mind readers and mentalists are also great fun and are certain to leave an impact on everyone, not just the chosen targets. Mind reading is a timeless classic, but a modern twist sees the audience reading the magician's mind and turns it into something altogether new.
PERSONALITY & EXPERIENCE
Experience and confidence are the key weapons in a magician's toolkit. Confidence comes from experience, and a seasoned Aldershot magician can adapt quickly to changing situations among your audience. There are times when magic tricks go awry, and where a rookie magician might struggle to recover, an experienced professional will turn it around. This is part of the skill a professional and experienced magician has to offer as they perform.
A skilled magician will also know how to work the audience to good advantage. What you certainly don't need at your event or party in Aldershot is a performer who causes embarrassment or insult, with comments that are unsuitable for the guest list. The ability to communicate with audiences of all ages and backgrounds is a pre-requisite for any professional magician in Aldershot. A magician should be able to engage with your guests and put them at ease as he (or she) performs.
Also, it is a sign of a great magician not to reveal his (or her) secrets, or have tricks that are far too obvious. A cabaret style magician in Aldershot, unlike close-up and table magicians, can use a scripted performance, but even then they need to be able to adapt and make it flow freely to react to any change in the circumstances. A magician should never just show up to your event in Aldershot, do a few simple tricks and disappear, they must perform, interact and ensure they give all your guests a real "OMG" moment to remember.
FINDING AN EXCELLENT MAGICIAN IN ALDERSHOT
If you do a search on the internet you'll find many magicians in the Aldershot area available for hire. Tracking down a magician for your budget may be somewhat easier through an agency. If you've been to a neighbour's party where you enjoyed a magician's show, get their telephone number and ask how much they charge. Keep in mind the kind of event that they held, and if this is much like yours in the ages and expectations of the guests.
Pick 2 or 3 local magicians you think will be suited to your event in Aldershot and make a pre-booking enquiry either with them or their agency. You're looking to find out:
Performance - Will it be a one-off cabaret style performance, or will it be separated to provide an entire evening of entertainment?
Style - Do they interact with small groups and individual guests in a friendly and informal way, or are they a cabaret style magician to entertain a whole crowd.
Suitability - Don't make the mistake of booking a kid's party magician for an adults only function.
Experience - For how long have they been performing as a professional magician, and approximately how many events have they attended, or shows have they given?
Once you have all your answers, and of course, the quotes - you can pick out a magician for your event. You should be confident at this stage that your magician will be fully prepared to kick start your event and provide a memorable and unique experience for everybody.
