Magician Batley West Yorkshire (WF17): When you are searching for something a little bit extra for your party or event in the Batley area, and you are thinking about a mysterious evening that everybody will remember; you need to bring in a magician.
Magicians have become one of the most popular entertainment choices for wedding receptions, birthdays, dinner parties and corporate events over the last few years. They're still the first choice for kid's parties, but due to TV programs such as, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are often on the short list for audiences of a more mature nature.
It's a wonderful experience to see a skilled magician work up close, and no matter how hard you try, not be able to figure out the secrets of those magic tricks.
A quality magician will have everyone enthralled as they demonstrate impromptu magic as they mingle with the guests, or put on a more conventional cabaret stage show. But what sort of magician should you hire?
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN BATLEY
Before you contact a magician or entertainment company you should to begin with take a look at your event guest list. It's a given that a dinner party will require a different sort of magician to a kids party. Knowing the expectations of your guests should allow you to choose the best magician.
It can be easy, if you fail to do your research in understanding what you need, to hire the wrong type of magician for your event. By doing this elementary research and knowing precisely what you need, you reduce the risk of hiring the wrong style of magic act. If your event is a mixture of adults and children, or a formal corporate function, you'll not want to book a risqué magician who would go down well at a stag party or hen party. On the other hand, a kids magician at a wedding function may be embarrassing for both the happy couple, and the magician.
Informal events are good for demonstrating close-up magic to small groups, and sleight of hand magicians and pickpockets performing street magic generally go down a storm. If your occasion calls for something a bit more formal, or needs to be performed within a set time frame, consider hiring a corporate, stage or cabaret magician to impress your entire audience.
Popular with guests of all age groups, and sure to keep everybody guessing are mind readers and mentalists. Some skillful magicians can even flip this around and get the audience to read their mind - the perfect twist to a well loved classic magic trick.
PERSONALITY & EXPERIENCE
In magic, as with many other things, confidence is key. Batley magicians with years of experience in their lockers will be much more able to adapt and change with an audience's different personalities than a magician who's just setting out in the business. If things goes awry during a trick, as sometimes happens, an experienced magician will turn it to his advantage and turn it into a part of the show, whereby somebody just starting out in the business may be flustered by the mistake. This is part of the skill a professional and experienced magician has to offer when they perform.
With the benefit of experience also comes the knowledge required to work the crowd. What you don't want at your function in Batley is a performer who causes embarrassment or insult, with remarks that are not suitable for your guests. What you really want is a magician who can communicate with anybody at your function on their level, or as close as possible. The thing that turns a decent magician into an incredible one, is the capability to make all your guests feel comfortable, especially if they've volunteered for a trick.
While the technicalities of some magician's tricks can be guessed, a professional magician should never disclose the secrets behind their magic. They should also not rely on tightly scripted material, because working with a live audience can bring unexpected surprises at every turn of the cards. A true magician will be a performer at your party in Batley, who provides your guests with a memorable "OMG" moment, not somebody who thoughtlessly strolls around doing a magic trick here and there before pocketing the fee and leaving.
