Magicians have become one of the most popular entertainment choices for corporate events, dinner parties, birthdays and weddings in recent years. They are still very popular for kid's birthday parties, but because of TV programs such as, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are an automatic choice for more mature audiences.
Having a skilled magician perform close-up magic at your table is an amazing experience, and one that will certainly leave you pondering over the mysteries behind the tricks.
A decent magician will have everyone captivated as they perform impromptu magic as they mingle with your guests, or put on a more conventional cabaret stage show. The most challenging part is deciding on the best magician for your event or party in Lancing.
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN LANCING
The first thing to do is consider the people who are coming to your event or party. Is it a corporate event, wedding, kids party or other celebration that you want a magician for? Choosing a suitable magician, and asking them the right questions should be easier when you've some idea of what you're expecting from them.
The difference between a fun party and a more formal corporate event can be quite different and you could easily hire the wrong kind of magician if you don't research or understand your exact requirements. By doing your research and knowing precisely what you want, you reduce the chances of booking the wrong style of magician. If your party is a formal corporate function or a combination of children and adults, you'll not want to book a risqué magician who may go down well at a stag or hen party. It's also obvious that a children's magic show will probably not be appropriate for more mature audiences.
Close-up magic tricks are always a very popular choice for informal occasions and parties, but you can also pick from street magicians, pick-pockets and sleight of hand experts. If your function is in a more formal setting, or needs to be performed within set times, consider booking a stage, corporate or cabaret magician to amaze your entire audience.
Great fun for guests of all ages are mind readers and mentalists, who can keep the whole audience second guessing long after the show has finished. Mind reading is a timeless classic, but a contemporary twist sees members of the audience reading the magician's mind and changes it into something totally new.
PERSONALITY & EXPERIENCE
Experience is everything when it comes to magic. Lancing magicians with years of experience in their lockers will be far more able to adapt and change to the different personalities of an audience than a magician who is just setting out in the profession. At times magic tricks go wrong, and you need somebody who can transform such mishaps into an integral part of the act and not dry up. Having the confidence and experience to accomplish this can't be learned overnight.
A good magician will also know how to work the crowd to good advantage. What you don't want at your event or party in Lancing is a magic act that causes embarrassment or insult, with remarks that are not suitable for your guests. A professional magician should be able to interact with everybody, irrespective of background or age. What turns a good magician into an amazing one, is the capacity to make your guests feel comfortable, especially if they've volunteered to take part in a trick.
It is also a sign of a good magician not to reveal his secrets, or have magic tricks that are obvious to deduce. They should also not make use of tightly scripted material, as entertaining a live audience can bring unexpected surprises at every turn. A genuine magician should be a real performer at your occasion in Lancing, who offers guests with a memorable "OMG" moment, not somebody who simply strolls around doing the odd magic trick before departing with his wages.
FINDING A TOP NOTCH LANCING MAGICIAN
If you search on the internet you will find many magicians in the Lancing area available to book. Finding a magician to suit your budget can be easier through an entertainment agency. If you've got friends or neighbours who have hired a local magician in the past it is an excellent idea to ask their recommendations and advice. If you do ask for recommendations from relatives and friends, enquire about what type of party they held in order to compare it with your planned event.
Make an initial enquiry with at least three magicians or management companies in Lancing and ask them for quotes. You will want to ask about:
Performance - If a stage magician, do they put on just one single performance, or will they also mingle with your guests during the course of the evening.
Experience - For what length of time have they been practicing as a professional magician and have they got a portfolio of parties and functions where they have performed magic shows.
Style - Will they interact with individual guests and small groups in an informal way, or do they put on a cabaret style show to entertain the entire audience.
Suitability - Tell them the form of event you are planning, i.e. wedding party, children's birthday bash, hen/stag party etc, and ask if they can perform for that demographic.
Choosing the most suitable magician from the answers that they give may mean you may not pick the cheapest magician in Lancing; however you will have made the best choice. You will be reassured at this stage that your magician will be ready to set your event off with a bang and create a unique and unforgettable experience for everybody.
