Magicians have become the most popular entertainment choice for wedding receptions, dinner parties, corporate events and birthdays over the last couple of decades. They're still the first choice for children's parties, but because of television shows such as, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are an automatic choice for more mature audiences.
Having a professional magician perform in front of you at your table with close up magic is a great experience, and one that will surely leave you wondering the secrets behind the tricks.
You might want your magician to perform a cabaret type show, or maybe you would prefer more informal magic as they mingle with guests; in any case, they'll be entertained and mesmerised. But what kind of magician should you book?
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN BEXLEY
Before you contact an entertainment company or magician you should for starters take a close look at your guest list. Is it a wedding reception, corporate event, kids party or other occasion for why you want a magician? Having a perception of the expectations of your guests should help you ask the right questions of any potential magician.
It's quite easy, if you fail to do your groundwork in understanding exactly what you require, to hire the wrong kind of magician for your event. To simply book in any style of magician without doing this research could be a huge mistake. Wedding parties are generally a wide mix of ages, and a magician who is more used to events like stag or hen parties is probably not the ideal choice. It is also the case that a kid's magic show probably won't be suitable for more mature, adult audiences.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Informal gatherings allow close up magic to be demonstrated to small groups of guests, and pickpockets and sleight of hand magicians performing various kinds of street magic generally go down a storm. Formal and corporate events will need a timed show performed to your entire audience, and in this case consider stage, corporate or cabaret magicians.
Mentalists and mind readers are also very entertaining and will leave an impact on all of your guests, not just the selected targets. Mind reading is a time honoured classic, however a contemporary twist sees audience members reading the magician's mind and turns it into something new entirely.
EXPERIENCE & PERSONALITY
Experience and confidence are the ultimate weapons in a magician's toolkit. Bexley magicians with many years of experience in their lockers will be more likely to change and adapt with a group's different personalities than a magician who is just getting going in the business. There are times when magic tricks go wrong, and where an unskilled magician might struggle to recover, an experienced professional will flourish. That's where many years of experience working with groups of people comes to the forefront.
A skilled magician will also have the experience of working the crowd to get the right responses. When a magician in Bexley finds this difficult to accomplish, it can quickly turn into an uncomfortable experience for everyone. A skilled magician will be capable of interacting with everyone, regardless of background or age. A magician should put your guests at ease and engage with them as he performs.
Although the ins and outs of some tricks can be guessed at, a skilled magician shouldn't ever reveal their secrets. They should also not rely on rigidly scripted material, as working with live audiences can throw up surprises at every turn. A genuine magician should be a real performer at your event in Bexley, who offers your guests with a memorable "OMG" moment, not somebody who simply strolls around doing the odd magic trick before departing with his wages.
FINDING AN EXCELLENT MAGICIAN IN BEXLEY
If you look on the internet you will find many magicians in the Bexley area available for hire. Whether they are part of an entertainment agency, or individuals, you will want the best you can get within your price range.

All you need to do now is settle back and enjoy the whole experience as your magician gets your party started, and makes it a memorable occasion for all the guests.
AFFILIATIONS AND QUALIFICATIONS

There are numerous locally based magic clubs scattered around the United Kingdom that share the tricks of the trade and provide support, but the biggest and most exclusive honour for any magician is to be accepted as a member of The Magic Circle.
