Magicians have seen a surge in popularity in recent times, and have become the ideal entertainment choice for birthdays, weddings, corporate events and dinner parties in Burnley. They're still the first choice for children's parties, but owing to television shows like, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are often on the short list for audiences of a more mature nature.
Having a talented magician perform close-up magic at your table is an amazing experience, and one that will surely leave you curious about the mysteries behind the tricks.
You may want your magician to put on a cabaret type show, or perhaps you would rather have more informal magic as they mingle up close with your guests; in either case, they'll have fun and be mesmerised. So, how do you decide what magician is best for your event in Burnley?
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN BURNLEY
Before getting in touch with a magician or entertainment company you should for starters take a close look at your guest list. Is it a wedding, kid's party, corporate event or other occasion that you want a magician for? Having an outline of the expectations of your guests should 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 quite different and you could easily hire the wrong style of magician if you fail to research or recognise your requirements. By doing this elementary research and knowing what you need, you lessen the chances of hiring an inappropriate choice of magician. If your event is a formal corporate occasion or a mix of children and adults, you will not want the sort of risqué magician who would go down a storm at a hen party of stag party. On the other hand, a kid's magician at a wedding party might be somewhat embarrassing for the happy couple, and the magician.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Informal gatherings allow close up magic to be performed to small groups, and pickpockets and sleight of hand magicians performing various kinds of street magic normally go down a storm. If your function requires a more formal setting, or needs to be performed within a set time frame, look at hiring a corporate, cabaret or stage magician to impress the entire audience.
Mind readers and mentalists are also very entertaining and will confound all the guests, not simply the chosen targets. Certain masters of magic can even flip this trick around and get members of the audience to read their mind - the ultimate twist to a well loved magic trick.
EXPERIENCE & PERSONALITY
Experience and confidence are the vital weapons in a magician's armoury. Confidence comes from years of experience, and a seasoned Burnley magician can quickly adapt to ever changing situations among your guests. There are occasions when magic tricks simply go wrong, and where an inexperienced magician may struggle to recover, an experienced professional will turn it around. This is a part of the skills an experienced and professional magician brings to the table as they perform.
Working the audience and ensuring that everyone is included is also a skill borne from many years of experience. When a magician in Burnley finds this hard to achieve, it can become a very embarrassing experience for everybody. What you actually want is a magician who can chat to anybody at your event on their level, or at least near to it. What turns a good magician into an awesome one, is the ability to make all your guests feel comfortable, especially if they've volunteered to be a part of a trick.
Whilst the technicalities of some tricks can be guessed at, a skilled magician should never disclose their secrets. They can't rely on a script, unless it is a set cabaret act, and even then it should be free flowing and readily adapted should the necessity arise. A magician should not just show up to your event in Burnley, do a few tricks and disappear, they must perform, interact and make certain they give all your guests an "OMG" moment.
FINDING A GOOD BURNLEY MAGICIAN
If you do a search on the internet you will find many magicians in the Burnley area available for hire. Tracking down a magician to suit your budget can be easier through an agency. Testimonials from relatives or friends is always a good way to uncover a decent magician in Burnley. If you do seek testimonials from friends or neighbours, ask about what style of party they held so as to compare it with your planned event.
Pick out two or three local magicians you think will be suited to your event in Burnley and make a preliminary enquiry either with them or their agency. You'll be interested in the following answers from each of them:
Style - Do they perform close-up magic for individual guests and small groups in a friendly way, or are they a cabaret style magician to entertain a whole audience.
Performance - If a stage magician, do they put on a single show, or do they also mingle afterwards and perform more magical experiences for your guests.
Suitability - Let them know the type of event you're staging, i.e. corporate event, wedding reception, kids birthday party etc, and ask if they can perform for that demographic.
Experience - For what length of time have they been practicing as a magician and have they got a portfolio of functions and events where they have put on shows.
Once you have all your responses, together with, the charges - you can pick a magician for your event. You will be confident at this point that your chosen magician will be ready to set your event off with a bang and create an unforgettable and unique experience for everyone.
