Magicians have seen a massive surge in popularity over the last decade or so, and have become the perfect entertainment choice for wedding receptions, corporate events, dinner parties and birthdays in Burton-upon-Trent. They're still extremely popular for children's parties, but because of TV programs such as, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are often on the short list for audiences of a more mature nature.
There's something extra special about seeing a talented magician up close, particularly when you simply can't work out how they did it.
A skilled magician will have everyone captivated as they perform impromptu magic while mingling with the guests, or put on a more professional cabaret style stage show. However, what type of magician will you need?
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN BURTON-UPON-TRENT
The first thing you ought to do is consider the people who are coming to your party or event. Think of the sort of function you are staging and the age brackets of the guests who will be present. Knowing the expectations of your guests should allow you to pick out the most suitable magician.
The difference between a fun party and a more formal corporate event can be very different and you may hire the wrong style of magician if you fail to research or recognise your precise requirements. You could make a big mistake by booking a magician if you don't do this research. Wedding parties, for example usually involve a wide mix of age groups, and a magician who regularly performs at events like stag parties or hen parties might not be the ideal choice. On the flip side of the coin, a magician who usually does children's parties may not have the finesse for a wedding function or a corporate event, causing embarrassment all round.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Informal events are good for demonstrating close-up magic to small groups, and sleight of hand magicians and pickpockets performing various kinds of "street" magic usually go down well. Formal and corporate events will need a timed show presented to the whole audience, and in cases like this consider corporate, stage or cabaret magicians.
Mind readers and mentalists are also extreme fun and will confound everybody, not simply the selected targets. Some magicians can even switch this round and get a member of the audience to read their mind - the perfect twist to a classic magic trick.
EXPERIENCE & PERSONALITY
Confidence is key when it comes to magic. With experience comes confidence, and a good Burton-upon-Trent magician can adapt quickly to ever changing situations among your audience. There are certainly occasions when magic tricks go awry, and where an inexperienced magician may struggle to recover, a seasoned professional will turn it around to his or her advantage. Gaining the confidence and experience to achieve this cannot be learned overnight.
With the benefit of experience also comes the knowledge of successfully working the audience. When a magician in Burton-upon-Trent finds this hard to achieve, it can soon become an embarrassing experience for everybody. What you really want is a magician who can communicate with anyone at your function on their own level, or as close to it as possible. What turns a good magician into a fabulous one, is the skill to make your guests feel comfortable, particularly if they've volunteered to be a part of a magic trick.
There'll always be guests who want to know exactly how specific tricks are executed; a professional magician shouldn't ever reveal their secrets, or perform magic tricks which are easy to deduce. A cabaret style magician in Burton-upon-Trent, unlike close-up and table magicians, can perform to a script, but even then they should be able to adapt and make it flow freely to accommodate any change in the circumstances. A magician shouldn't just rock up to your event in Burton-upon-Trent, knock out a few tricks and walk away, they need to perform, interact and make sure that they give your guests an "OMG" moment to remember.

You'll be able to select from individuals or book through a larger entertainment company to try to find the best value for money. If you've been to a neighbour's party where you saw a decent magician's act, ask for their telephone number and how much they cost. If you do seek testimonials from friends or family, check out what style of party they held so as to compare it with your intended event.

AFFILIATIONS & QUALIFICATIONS
There aren't any formal qualifications in the magician world, and training is either self-taught, or done with the utmost secrecy. There are of course a whole host of local magic clubs scattered around the United Kingdom that share the tricks of the trade and give support, but the biggest and most exclusive membership for any magician is The Magic Circle.
Only the most skillful magicians are even considered for membership of the Magic Circle, and if it's possible to book one of these for your function in Burton-upon-Trent you should jump at the chance. To become a member of the Magic Circle you must first be recommended by 2 active members, before an interview and magic demonstration can be arranged.
If they pass these two stages the final say on whether or not they can be a member is decided by the Council of the Magic Circle. After all these demands have been fulfilled and ratified, a magician will receive the respected membership of the world's premier magic club.
CHILDREN'S MAGICIANS BURTON-UPON-TRENT
A footnote on magicians for children's parties; a professional kids magician will not be offended if you ask about background check documents and references. Seeing as a kids magician will obviously be in fairly close contact with young children, there's a requirement for them to have been background checked by the police.
Energy and entertainment are the key to a children's magician's skillset, and they must be able to keep kids of all ages mesmerised throughout the entire course of the show. Some magicians might have specific age groups their act is more suited to, and they ought to ask what age group your party is for. With the age-old problem of keeping youngsters amused, the magician must also be a fantastic entertainer who can readily adapt to changing environments.
Close-up magic, often referred to as table magic, is a fascinating entertainment form that places wonder directly at your fingertips. Right at your table, talented magicians use everyday objects like playing cards, coins, and small props to perform astonishing tricks and illusions. The audience, witnessing the magic up close, is engulfed in a sense of mystery and awe due to this interactive and intimate style of magic. Table magic leaves spectators astonished and questioning the boundaries of reality, creating a lasting impression, whether at a restaurant, a social gathering or a private event. It brings enchantment and joy to all, creating a memorable experience. (48263)
