Over the last couple of decades, magicians have become one of the most popular choices for entertainment at corporate events, dinner parties, wedding receptions and birthdays in Croydon. There has been a big shift from them being seen as purely kid's entertainers, and have now become a regular choice for more mature adult audiences.
Having a talented magician perform close-up magic at your table is a terrific experience, and one that will definitely leave you curious about the secrets behind the tricks.
A good magician will have everyone captivated as they demonstrate impromptu magic as they mingle with your guests, or host a more professional cabaret style stage show. So, how do you pick what magician you need for your event in Croydon?
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN CROYDON
Before you contact an entertainment company or magician you should to begin with take a good look at your guest list. Is it a wedding, corporate event, kids party or other occasion that you want a magician for? Choosing a suitable magician, and asking them the right questions is going to be much easier when you have some expectations of just what you want from them.
Since every function is different, you'll need to understand just what you want from the magician, so that you do not make a mistake and hire the wrong style. To just book in a magician without carrying out this elementary research may be a huge mistake. Wedding events usually involve a mixture of age groups, and a magician who's more used to events like hen or stag parties might not be the best choice. On the other end of the spectrum, a children's magician will probably not have the necessary level of finesse for a wedding function or a corporate event, causing embarrassment all round.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Informal events are good for performing close-up magic to small groups, and pickpockets and sleight of hand magicians performing various kinds of street magic generally go down well. For more formal functions you may prefer a corporate, stage, or after dinner cabaret magician.
Popular to people of all ages, and sure to keep everybody guessing are mentalists and mind readers. Certain magicians can even turn this around and get audience members to read their mind - the perfect twist to a classic magic trick.
EXPERIENCE & PERSONALITY
Confidence and experience are the ultimate weapons in a magician's armoury. A magician in Croydon with a lot of experience should be able to change their act to suit different personalities, in a seamless and professional fashion. If something goes wrong during a magic trick, as occasionally occurs, an experienced magician will turn it to his advantage and turn it into part of the show, whereby a person just starting up in the business could be flustered by the mistake. This is part of the skills a professional and experienced magician has to offer when they perform.
Working the crowd and ensuring all the guests are included is another skill that is gained from experience. If a magician can't accomplish this it's probable you will wind up with a winceworthy experience that is embarrassing. What you really want is a magician who can chat to anyone at your event on their level, or as near to it as possible. The thing that turns a reasonable magician into an excellent one, is the capability to put the audience at ease, especially if they have volunteered for a trick.
There'll always be individuals who wish to know exactly how particular tricks are done; a professional magician shouldn't ever use tricks that are simple to deduce, or expose their innermost secrets. A cabaret style magician in Croydon, unlike table and close up magicians, can perform to a script, but even then they need to be able to be flexible and make it flow freely to allow for any change in the atmosphere. You'll want to book a magician in Croydon who interacts with the guests and gives your event a real "OMG" moment, not somebody who strolls in, knocks out a few basic tricks, pockets the fee and vanishes.
FINDING AN EXCELLENT CROYDON MAGICIAN
If you look online you'll find plenty of magicians in and around Croydon available to book. Whether they're individuals, or part of a large entertainment company, you want the best within your price range. Recommendations and advice from friends or relatives is always a reliable way to discover a decent magician in Croydon. When given advice, don't forget to ask about the age brackets and style of party that the magician attended so that you can compare it to your own event.
Pick 2 or 3 local magicians who you think will be suited to your event in Croydon and make a pre-booking enquiry either with them or their agency. You'll be interested in answers to the following from each one:
Performance - If they're a stage magician, do they put on a single show, or do they also mingle afterwards and perform more magical tricks for your guests.
Suitability - Try not to make the mistake of hiring a kid's party magician for an all adult event.
Once you've got your replies, not to mention, the quotations - you can choose your function's magician. You should be confident at this stage that your chosen magician will be prepared to liven up your event and provide a unique and memorable experience for everyone.
AFFILIATIONS AND QUALIFICATIONS
There aren't any official qualifications in the world of magicians, and training that takes place is either self-taught, or carried out with the utmost secrecy. There are a large number of local magic clubs scattered around the UK that share tricks and provide support, but the biggest and most prestigious honour for any magician is to be a member of The Magic Circle.
Any Croydon magician who is able to display Magic Circle membership has proven their ability and skill to the world's prominent magicians. There is no guaranteed membership of the Magic Circle and those applying have to be endorsed by two active members prior to being invited to take part in an interview and, if they pass this stage, give demonstrations of their magic.
The interview and demonstration must be passed successfully before the final decision by the Council of the Magic Circle is reached. These steps have to all be traversed before any magician can call themselves a member of The Magic Circle.
CHILDREN'S MAGICIANS CROYDON
A footnote on magicians for children's parties; a professional children's magician won't be offended or upset if you enquire about references and background check documents. Anybody who advertises the fact that they work with kids should be checked as a part of the industry, and children's magicians are no exception.
Entertainment and energy are key to a kid's magician's repertoire, and they should be able to keep all ages of children mesmerised during their show. Letting a kids magician know the age group of the guests at your event, will enable them to personalise their act to match the children effectively. A kid's magician should also be an entertainer who must be able to change and adapt swiftly to keep the children interested and amazed throughout the whole show.
