Magicians have become the most popular entertainment choice for dinner parties, wedding receptions, corporate events and birthdays over the last few years. They're also still the number one choice for children's parties, although there has been a big shift in their popularity for performing at more adult events.

It's an amazing experience to see a skilled magician work up close, and no matter how hard you try, not be able to work out the secrets of those magic tricks.

You may want your magician to perform a cabaret style show, or perhaps you would rather have more informal magic as they mingle with guests; either way, they will have fun and be enthralled. So, how do you choose which magician is best for your event in Chelmsford?


Before doing anything, take a look at the list of guests who are coming to your event. Is it a corporate event, kid's party, wedding or other celebration that you need a magician for? Picking a suitable magician, and asking them the appropriate questions is going to be far easier when you have some idea of exactly what you want from them.

Since every function is different, you will need to understand precisely what you want from your magician, so you do not make a mistake in hiring the wrong magic style. To just book any style of magician without undertaking this research could be a big mistake. An adult entertainer might have magic more appropriate for a stag or hen party than to a corporate event, or a function where young children are in attendance. It is also the case that a kid's magic show may not be appropriate for more mature audiences.

Informal functions allow close up magic to be performed to small groups of guests, and sleight of hand magicians and pickpockets performing "street" magic usually go down well. For those more formal functions you may prefer an after dinner cabaret, corporate or stage magician.

Exciting for all ages are mind readers and mentalists, who can keep the entire audience guessing for long after the show. This well loved magic trick can be completely changed when the magician turns it around and has the audience read their mind.


Experience and confidence are the ultimate weapons in a magician's toolkit. With experience comes confidence, and a talented Chelmsford magician can quickly adapt to changing situations among your guests. At times magic tricks go awry, and you need somebody who can turn these mishaps into an integral part of the act and not freeze. This is when many years of experience working with groups of people comes in handy.

Working the audience and making sure that everyone is included is another skill that is gained from experience. When a magician in Chelmsford finds this hard to achieve, it can turn into a very embarrassing experience for everybody. A talented magician should be able to interact with all the guests, regardless of background or age. A magician should be able to put your guests at ease and engage with them as he (or she) performs.

It's also the mark of a great magician not to reveal his secrets, or perform magic tricks that are obvious or easy to deduce. They should also not count on scripted material, since working with a live audience can bring unexpected surprises at every turn of the cards. A magician should not just show up to your party in Chelmsford, do a few simple tricks and walk away, they need to perform, interact and make sure that they give your audience an "OMG" moment to remember.

Performance - Will it be a one time performance (cabaret style), or will it be separated to provide a complete evening of entertainment?

Style - Will they perform close-up magic with individual guests and small groups in a relaxed way, or do they put on a cabaret style show to entertain the entire audience.

With no formal qualifications or career progression, magicians learn their art in total secrecy, or in many cases teach themselves. Magic clubs around the country support magicians of all ages to share tips, tricks and hints, but the most renowned club of them all is The Magic Circle.

Magic Tricks Chelmsford

Only the world's foremost magicians and entertainers are able to become part of the most prized magic club in the industry. The Magic Circle is incredibly particular about accepting new members, and any magician wanting to apply must be invited by two standing members to sit an interview and then prove their magical skills.

The interview and demonstration steps have to be passed successfully before the final decision by the Magic Circle Council is reached. These stages must all be traversed before any magician can become a member of the famed The Magic Circle.


Entertaining children is a specialist art and professional kid's magicians will fully understand your requirement to see any background checks before you book them. Seeing as a children's magician will be working with young children, there is a need for them to have been DBS background checked by the police.

An experienced kid's magician in Chelmsford will be able to mould their act to keep any group of children captivated and amused, no matter what their age. Letting a children's magician know the age group of the youngsters attending your party, will allow them to customise their show to accommodate the audience successfully. A kid's magician is also a performer who must be able to adapt and change rapidly to keep the children amused and interested over the course of the show.
