Magicians have seen a massive increase in popularity over the last few years, and have become the ideal entertainment choice for corporate events, dinner parties, birthdays and wedding receptions in Oldham. They are still very popular for kids birthday parties, but due to TV programs such as, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are an automatic choice for audiences of a more mature nature.
Having a magician perform close-up magic at your table is a terrific experience, and one that will surely leave you wondering the mystical secrets behind the tricks.
A skilled magician will have everybody enthralled as they perform impromptu magic as they mingle with your guests, or put on a more conventional cabaret style stage show. So, how do you pick what magician is best for your function in Oldham?
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN OLDHAM
Before making contact with a magician or entertainment company you should for starters take a close look at your guest list. It's a given that a kid's party will require a different type of magician than a dinner party. Knowing yours, and your guests, expectations from the event will enable you to choose the right magician.
The difference between a fun party and a more formal corporate event can be massively different and you could easily hire the wrong type of magician if you don't research or appreciate your requirements. You could be mistaken by booking a magician if you do not do this research. If your party is a mix of children and adults, or a formal corporate occasion, you'll not want a risqué magician who would go down well at a stag or hen party. On the other end of the spectrum, a children's magician may not have the necessary level of finesse for a wedding reception or a formal corporate event, causing embarrassment for everybody.
Close-up table magic is always a very popular choice for parties and informal occasions, but you also have the option of pick-pockets, sleight of hand magicians and street magicians. For more formal occasions you might prefer a corporate, after dinner cabaret, or stage magician.
Very exciting for guests of all ages are mentalists and mind readers, who are able to keep the whole audience guessing long after the show is over. Some skillful magicians can even turn this around and get the audience to read their mind - the ultimate twist to a classic magic trick.
EXPERIENCE AND PERSONALITY
Confidence is key when it comes to performing magic. An experienced Oldham magician will be able to modify their act to different personalities, in a seamless and professional manner. There are occasions when magic tricks don't work, and where a rookie magician might struggle to recover, a seasoned professional will turn it around to his advantage. Having the experience and confidence to achieve this can't be learnt overnight.
With experience also comes the knowledge required to successfully work the crowd. What you certainly don't need at your event or party in Oldham is a magic act that causes embarrassment or insult, with remarks that are not suitable for the guest list. What you really want is a magician who can speak to anyone at your function on their own level, or as close to it as possible. They should be able to engage with all of your guests and put them at ease during the show.
Even though the workings of some tricks can be guessed at, a good magician shouldn't ever disclose the real secrets behind their magic. A cabaret style magician in Oldham, unlike close-up and table magicians, can perform to a script, although even so they must be able to adapt and make it flow freely to allow for any change in the circumstances. You will want a performer who interacts and gives your event a true "OMG" moment to remember, not someone who strolls in, does a few simple tricks and "vanishes".
FINDING A GOOD MAGICIAN IN OLDHAM
Oldham has a decent number of skilled entertainers and magicians available for you party. Whether they're individuals, or part of an entertainment company, you'll want the best for your budget. If you've been to a friend's party where you watched a good magician's performance, ask for their phone number and how much they charge. If you do ask for testimonials from friends or neighbours, check out what kind of event they held in order to compare it with your proposed event.
Pick at least three magicians you think will be suitable for your party in Oldham and make a general enquiry either with them or their management team. You'll want to enquire about:
Experience - Have they entertained at many functions/parties, and how long have they been working as a professional magician.
Suitability - Inform them of the style of function you are holding, i.e. hen/stag party, wedding party, kid's birthday bash etc, and ask if they can perform for that demographic.
Performance - How long is the show, whether it is a cabaret style magician, or if they are an up-close magician who interacts with the audience, what time will they start and end?
Don't always pick out the cheapest quote, consider how each Oldham magician will work within your plan and pick according to suitability. You will now be able to relax, with the entertainment organised, and enjoy the magical experience on the evening.
QUALIFICATIONS AND AFFILIATIONS
There are no official qualifications in the world of magicians, and training is either self-taught, or undertaken in secrecy. Magic clubs around the United Kingdom will welcome magicians of any age to share tips, hints and tricks, but the most renowned club of them all is the much celebrated Magic Circle.
Only the world's top rated magicians and entertainers are able to become a part of the most desirable magic club in the sector. There's no guaranteed membership and applicants have to be put forward by two current members before being invited to take part in an interview and, if they pass this stage, demonstrate their magic abilities.
The interview and subsequent demonstration stage have to be successfully passed before the ultimate vote by the Magic Circle Council committee is made. These stages must all be surmounted before any magician can call themselves a member of the famed The Magic Circle.
