Magicians have become the subject of an increase in popularity in recent times, and are ideal entertainment for corporate events, dinner parties, weddings and birthdays in Bishops Stortford. They're also still the number one choice for kid's parties, but there's been a huge shift in their popularity for more adult oriented events.
It certainly is a unique experience to see a talented magician perform close up, and regardless how hard you try, not be able to figure out the secrets of those magic tricks.
A talented magician will have everyone mesmerised as they demonstrate improvised magic as they mingle with the guests, or put on a more conventional cabaret stage show. So, how do you pick what magician is best for your event in Bishops Stortford?
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN BISHOPS STORTFORD
The first thing to do is consider the people who are coming to your party or event. Is it a wedding reception, corporate event, kids party or other occasion that you need a magician for? Knowing yours, and your guests, expectations from the event will enable you to pick the most suitable magician.
Because every function is different, you will need to know what you want from your magician, so you do not get it wrong in hiring the wrong magic style. You could be mistaken by booking a magician without doing this groundwork. If your party is a mixture of children and adults, or a formal corporate occasion, you will not want to book a risqué magician who would go down well at a stag or hen party. On the flip side of the coin, a magician who normally does children's parties might not have the necessary level of finesse for a corporate event or wedding function, causing embarrassment all round.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Parties and informal occasions are ideal for sleight of hand magicians, close-up magic and street magicians who will intermingle with guests as they perform. If your occasion calls for something a bit more formal, or is presented to set times, consider hiring a stage, cabaret or corporate magician to amaze the whole audience.
Exciting for guests of all ages are mentalists and mind readers, who can keep the whole audience guessing long after the show has finished. Mind reading is a well loved classic, but a contemporary twist has audience members reading the magician's mind and changes it into something completely new.
EXPERIENCE AND PERSONALITY
In magic, confidence is king. Bishops Stortford magicians with years of experience behind them will be far more able to adapt and change to a group's different personalities than a magician just getting started in the business. There are times when tricks go wrong, and where a rookie magician might struggle to recover, an experienced professional will turn it around. This is where the years of experience of working with audiences comes to the fore.
With the benefit of experience also comes the knowledge required to successfully work the audience. If a magician can't accomplish this it is probable that you'll end up with a cringeworthy experience that is simply embarrassing. The capability to interact with audiences of any background or age is a pre-requisite for any professional magician in Bishops Stortford. The thing that turns a reasonable magician into an incredible one, is the capability to put all of your guests at ease, especially if they have volunteered for a trick.
It's also a sign of a skilled magician not to expose his (or her) secrets, or perform tricks that are obvious to deduce. Also, they should not rely on rigidly scripted material, because performing to a live audience can bring unexpected surprises at every turn. A genuine magician will be a real performer at your occasion in Bishops Stortford, who provides your guests with an unforgettable "OMG" moment, not someone who simply walks around doing the odd magic trick here and there before leaving with his wages.
FINDING A TOP NOTCH MAGICIAN IN BISHOPS STORTFORD
There are lots of adverts and webpages for party magicians and entertainers in the Bishops Stortford area. Obtaining a magician who fits your budget can be simpler through an entertainment agency. Advice and recommendations from family or friends is always a good way to track down an experienced and proven magician in Bishops Stortford. Bear in mind the kind of event they held, and if this is similar to yours in the ages and expectations of guests.
Make an initial enquiry with at least three local magicians or agencies in Bishops Stortford and ask them for quotes. You will want to know from all of them:
Style - Do they do close-up magic tricks as they mingle with the guests, or are they stage magicians.
Suitability - Do they see themselves more as children's entertainers, or are they appropriate for more mature, older audiences.
Performance - If they are a stage magician, do they put on just one single show, or will they also mingle and interact with your guests throughout the evening.
Experience - How long have they been trained as a professional magician and have they got a portfolio of events and parties where they have performed magic shows.
Don't pick the cheapest quote, look at how each Bishops Stortford magician will work within your event planning and pick accordingly. All you'll need to do then is settle back and enjoy the experience as your magician gets the party started, and makes it an unforgettable occasion for all of your guests.
AFFILIATIONS & QUALIFICATIONS
There aren't any formal qualifications in the world of magicians, and training is either self-taught, or undertaken in secrecy. There are of course a whole host of local magic clubs that share tricks and offer support, although the largest and most exclusive honour for any magician is to be a member of The Magic Circle.
Only the most skillful magicians are even considered for membership of the Magic Circle, and if you are able to book such a person for your celebration in Bishops Stortford you'll be honoured. There is no guaranteed membership to the Magic Circle and applicants have to be endorsed by 2 current members before they are invited to sit an interview and, if successful, demonstrate their magic skills.
If they pass these stages the final say on whether they can be a member is made by the ruling Council of the Magic Circle. Only then can the successful magician enter the renowned halls of magic and have pride in knowing that they are at the pinnacle of their profession.
KIDS MAGICIANS BISHOPS STORTFORD
Performing to children is something of a specialist art and professional kid's magicians will fully understand your need to see any background checks before you book them.

Energy and entertainment are foundation of a children's magician repertoire, and they should be able to keep all ages of children captivated during their show. Informing a children's magician of the age-range of the youngsters attending your party, will enable them to customise their performance to suit the children effectively.
