Free UK Magician Quotes

Magicians have become one of the most popular entertainment choices for wedding receptions, birthdays, corporate events and dinner parties in recent years. They are still very popular for kids parties, but due to TV shows like, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are sought after by audiences of a more mature nature.

Having a magician perform close-up magic at your table is a fantastic experience, and one which will leave you curious about the mystical secrets behind the tricks.

You might want your magician to put on a cabaret type show, or maybe you would prefer more informal magic while mingling up close with your guests; in either case, they will have fun and be enthralled. The hardest part is deciding on a suitable magician for your function in the UK.


Before you contact an entertainment company or magician you should first of all study your event guest list. Is it a wedding, kid's party, corporate event or other occasion for which you want a magician? Choosing a suitable magician, and asking them the right questions will be easier when you've got some idea of what you're expecting from them.

Because every event is different, you'll need to know just what you want from your magician, so that you don't make a mistake in hiring the wrong magic style. By doing your research and knowing what you want, you reduce the chances of booking the wrong style of magician. An adult entertainer may have magic more appropriate for a stag party or hen party than to a function where children are in attendance, or a corporate event. It's also obvious that a children's magic show may not be appropriate for more mature, adult audiences.

Informal functions allow close up magic to be performed to small groups, and sleight of hand magicians and pickpockets performing "street" magic normally go down well. Corporate and formal events may need a timed show presented to the entire audience, and in such cases consider stage, corporate or cabaret magicians.

Popular with guests of any age, and always keeping everybody guessing are mind readers and mentalists. Some skillful magicians can even switch this trick around and get the audience to read their mind - the ultimate twist to a well loved magic trick.


Experience is key when it comes to magic. An experienced UK magician should be able to adapt their act to suit different situations, in a professional and seamless manner. Sometimes magic tricks go wrong, and you need an individual who can transform such mishaps into part of the act and not dry up. This is where years of experience performing to audiences comes to the forefront.

With the benefit of experience also comes the knowledge required to work the crowd. When a magician in the UK finds this difficult to achieve, it can become a cringeworthy experience for everyone. A skilled magician should be capable of interacting with all of your guests, regardless of background or age. A magician should be able to engage with your guests and put them at ease as he performs.

There'll always be individuals who want to know how specific tricks are done; a good magician shouldn't ever use magic tricks that are simple to deduce, or disclose their innermost secrets. They should also not depend on heavily scripted material, since working with live audiences can throw up surprises at every turn of the cards. You will want a performer who interacts and gives your event a real OMG moment to remember, not somebody who strolls in, does a few simple tricks, pockets the fee and leaves.

If you look online you will find many magicians in and around UK available to book. Whether they're part of a large entertainment company, or individuals, you want the best you can get in your price range. If you have friends or family who've hired a local magician previously it is a great idea to ask their advice. When given advice, remember to ask about the age ranges and type of event that the magician attended so that you can compare it to your function.

Get quotes from two or three local agencies or magicians in the UK when you make your preliminary enquiries. You will be interested in answers to the following from each:

Performance - How long is the show, whether it is a cabaret style magician, or whether they are an up-close magician who interacts with your guests, what time do they start and finish?

Suitability - Don't make the oversight of booking a kids magic act for an adults only event.

Experience - For what length of time have they been trained as a professional magician and have they got a portfolio of functions and parties where they've performed.

Style - Will they perform in front of the, or will they interact and mingle with your guests?

Don't automatically pick the lowest quote, look at how each one would work within your planning and pick according to suitability. All you need to do now is sit back and enjoy the experience as your magician gets the party started, and makes it an unforgettable occasion for all of your guests.


With no conventional qualifications or career progression, magicians are trained in complete secrecy, or teach themselves over the course of many years. There are of course many local magic clubs that share tricks and provide support, although the biggest and most exclusive membership for any magician is The Magic Circle.

Magic Tricks UK

Only the world's prominent magicians and illusionists are able to become part of the most coveted magic club in the industry. There is no guaranteed membership and applicants must be put forward by 2 current members before being invited to take part in an interview and, if this is successful, proceed to demonstrate their magic.

If they get past these two stages the final say on whether they can be accepted as a member is decided by the ruling Council of the Magic Circle. Once all of these requirements have been achieved and verified, a magician can obtain the respected membership of the world's premier magic club.


A footnote on magicians for kid's parties; a professional children's magician will never be offended or upset if you ask about references and background checks. All people who work with children are required to have a DBS background check completed, and children's magicians are included in this list.

A skilled children's magician in the UK should be able to keep any age group of children entertained and captivated. Some magicians may have specific age brackets that their act is more suited to, and they should ask about the age range at your party. In relation to kid's parties in the UK, your magician should be able to entertain as well as perform magic tricks, and should be able to adapt quickly to rapidly changing situations.
