Over the last few years, magicians have become one of the most popular choices for providing the entertainment at dinner parties, weddings, birthdays and corporate events in Blackheath. They're still very popular for kids parties, but owing to TV shows like, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are sought after by more mature audiences.
Having a skilled magician perform close-up magic at your table is a fantastic experience, and one that will certainly leave you curious about the mystical secrets behind the tricks.
A good magician will have everyone captivated as they demonstrate impromptu magic while mingling with your guests, or host a more formal cabaret stage show. However, what sort of magician should you hire?
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN BLACKHEATH
Before contacting a magician or entertainment company you should to begin with take a good look at your event guest list. Consider the type of event you're holding and the age brackets of the people who will be there. Knowing yours, and your guests, expectations from the event will enable you to pick out the most suitable magician.
It can be easy, if you fail to do your homework in understanding just what you need, to hire the wrong type of magician for your event. You could be making a big mistake in booking a magician if you don't do this elementary research. An adult entertainer might perform magic tricks more suitable to a hen or stag party than to a function where children are present, or a formal corporate event. On the other end of the scale, a kids magician may not have the required level of finesse for a wedding reception or a more formal corporate event, causing embarrassment all round.
Parties and informal occasions are ideal for sleight of hand magicians, close-up magic and street style magicians who will intermingle with guests while they perform. If your occasion calls for something more formal, or needs to be performed within a set time frame, consider hiring a corporate, cabaret or stage magician to amaze the whole audience.
Great fun for guests of all ages are mentalists and mind readers, who are able to keep the whole audience guessing long after the show is over. This time honoured magic trick can be transformed when the magician turns it round and has the audience read their mind.
EXPERIENCE AND PERSONALITY
Experience is key when it comes to performing magic. Blackheath magicians with years of experience behind them will be far more likely to adapt and change to the different personalities of a group than a magician just getting going in the business. From time to time magic tricks go wrong, and you want somebody who can turn such mistakes into an integral part of the act and not freeze. Gaining the confidence and experience to achieve this cannot be learnt overnight.
With the benefit of experience also comes the knowledge required to work the audience. When a magician in Blackheath finds this hard to achieve, it can become a very embarrassing experience for everybody. A skilled magician will be able to interact with everyone, irrespective of age or background. The thing that turns a decent magician into an amazing one, is the capacity to make all your guests feel comfortable, particularly if they've volunteered to take part in a magic trick.
Even though the processes of some magician's tricks can be guessed at, a professional magician should never disclose the real secrets behind their magic. A cabaret magician in Blackheath, unlike close-up and table magicians, can use a scripted show, although even so they must be able to be adaptable and make it free-flowing to accommodate any change in the atmosphere. A magician shouldn't just show up to your event in Blackheath, knock out a few simple tricks and disappear, they must perform, interact and ensure they give the guests a real "OMG" moment.
FINDING AN EXCELLENT BLACKHEATH MAGICIAN
There are many adverts and web pages for entertainers and magicians in and around Blackheath, West Midlands. Obtaining a magician who fits your budget may be easier through an agency. If you've got friends or neighbours who've hired a magician in the past it is a great idea to ask for their advice. Bear in mind the type of event they held, and whether it is akin to yours in the expectations and ages of the partygoers.
Pick at least 3 local magicians you think will be suitable for your party or event in Blackheath and make a pre-booking enquiry with either them or their agency. You'll be interested in answers to the following from each one:
Performance - For how long does the show last, if it's a stage magician, or if they're an up-close magician who mixes and interacts with your guests, what time will they start and conclude?
Suitability - Don't make the error of booking a kid's magician for an all adult event.
Experience - Have they entertained at many functions/events, and for how long have they been working as a magician.
Style - Will they interact with your guests, or will they perform in front of the?
Once you've got your answers, together with, the quotes - you can choose a magician for your function. You should now be able to take it easy, with the entertainment organised, and join in the magical experience on the day.
QUALIFICATIONS AND AFFILIATIONS
There are no formal qualifications in the magician world, and training that takes place is either self-taught, or done with the utmost secrecy. There are of course a large number of local magic clubs scattered around the UK that share the tricks of the trade and give support, but the biggest and most prestigious membership for any magician is The Magic Circle.
Only the very best magicians in Blackheath who've proven themselves worthy candidates get the chance to become members of The Magic Circle. To become a member you must first be supported by 2 existing members, before the interview and demonstration stages can be arranged.

Only when these steps have been taken can a magician enter into the famed halls of magic and have pride in knowing that they're at the peak of their field.
CHILDREN'S MAGICIANS BLACKHEATH
