Magicians have become the subject of a huge surge in popularity in recent times, and are perfect entertainment for dinner parties, birthdays, wedding receptions and corporate events in Derby. They are still the top choice for children's parties, although there's been a significant shift in their popularity for putting on a show at more adult special events.

Having a magician perform in front of you at your table with close up magic is a terrific experience, and one that will leave you curious about the secrets behind the tricks.

From performing impromptu magic tricks whilst mingling with your guests, to a formal stage show; a talented magician will have everyone at your event looking on mesmerised. So, how do you choose which magician is best for your function in Derby?


The first thing you should do is consider the people who are attending your event or party. It's obvious that a dinner party will need a different type of magician to a kid's party. Choosing a suitable magician, and asking them the appropriate questions is going to be easier when you've got some expectations of exactly what you want from them.

It can be easy, if you don't do your research in understanding precisely what you require, to hire the wrong style of magician for your event. You could be mistaken by booking a magician without doing this groundwork. An adult entertainer might have magic tricks more appropriate for a hen or stag party than to a function where young children are in attendance, or a more formal corporate event. On the flip side, a magician who usually performs at kid's birthday parties might not have the required level of finesse for a wedding reception or a more formal corporate event, causing embarrassment all round.

Close-up magic is always an extremely popular choice for informal occasions and parties, but you also have the choice of pick-pockets, sleight of hand magicians and street style magicians. If your function calls for a more formal setting, or needs to be performed within a set time frame, look at booking a corporate, stage or cabaret magician to amaze your whole audience.

Popular with guests of all age groups, and sure to keep the audience guessing are mentalists and mind readers. This time honoured magic trick can be transformed when the magician turns it around and gets the audience to read their mind.


Experience and confidence are the vital weapons in a magician's armoury. Confidence comes from practical experience, and a seasoned Derby magician can adapt quickly to changing situations amongst your guests. There are certainly occasions when tricks simply go wrong, and where an inexperienced magician may struggle, an experienced professional will turn it around to his or her advantage. Gaining the experience and confidence to achieve this can't be learned overnight.

A decent magician will also know how to work the audience effectively. If a magician can't accomplish this it is likely you'll finish up with a cringe worthy experience that is simply embarrassing. A talented magician should be capable of interacting with everyone, irrespective of age or background. They should be able to engage with all of your guests and put them at ease throughout the performance.

Whilst the technicalities of some tricks can be guessed at, a good magician should never disclose the secrets behind their magic. A cabaret style magician in Derby, unlike table and close up magicians, can use a scripted show, although even so they need to be able to adapt and make it free-flowing to reflect any change in the circumstances. An authentic magician should be a real performer at your party in Derby, who offers guests with a memorable "OMG" moment, not somebody who thoughtlessly strolls around the room doing the odd magic trick before pocketing the fee and departing.

Style - Will they perform close-up magic for small groups and individual guests in an informal way, or do they put on a cabaret style show to entertain a whole crowd.

Performance - Will it be a once only cabaret style performance, or will it be separated to supply a complete evening of magical entertainment?

Magic Tricks Derby

Only if they successfully negotiate these steps will the judgment be made by the Magic Circle Council on whether or not to approve them as members. These stages have to all be passed before any magician can call themselves a member of the famed The Magic Circle.


Performing to children is something of a specialist art and a professional children's magician will completely understand a request to view any references and background check documents before you hire them. Anyone who advertises the fact that they work with young children should be background checked as a matter of course, and children's magicians are no exception.

A talented kids magician in Derby should be able to keep a group captivated and entertained. Certain magicians may point out the age ranges their material is more suitable for and it is important that you let them know the rough age range of the youngsters at your particular event. With the age-old problem of keeping children entertained and amused, the magician must also be a great performer who can readily adapt to ever changing environments.
