Magician Penzance Cornwall (TR18): Whenever you are searching for that little extra something for your party or event in the Penzance area, and you would like an enchanting evening that no-one will forget; you need to book a magician.
Magicians have become one of the most popular entertainment choices for dinner parties, birthdays, weddings and corporate events over the last decade or so. They're still the first choice for kids parties, but because of TV shows such as, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are often on the short list for audiences of a more mature nature.
It is a unique experience to see a professional magician perform close up, and no matter how desperately you try, not be able to figure out the secrets to the magic.
You might want your magician to perform a cabaret style show, or maybe you would prefer more informal magic while mingling with guests; either way, they are going to be entertained and enthralled. However, what type of magician should you book?
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN PENZANCE
Before you make contact with an entertainment company or magician you should to begin with study your guest list. Is it a corporate event, wedding, children's party or other celebration that you want a magician for? Knowing yours, and your guests, expectations from the event should enable you to choose the best magician.
Because every function is different, you will need to appreciate just what you expect from your magician, so that you don't get it wrong and hire the wrong type. To just book in a magician without carrying out this elementary research could be asking for trouble. If your event is a mix of adults and children, or a formal corporate function, you won't want to hire the sort of risqué magician who may go down a storm at a hen party of stag party. Alternatively, a children's magician at a wedding function could be a little embarrassing for both the magician, and the happy couple.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Parties and informal occasions are great places for sleight of hand magicians, street style magicians and close-up magic who'll intermingle with guests while they work. Corporate and formal events will need a timed show presented to your entire audience, and in cases like this consider corporate, cabaret or stage magicians.
Popular with guests of any age, and sure to keep everyone guessing are mentalists and mind readers. Mind reading is a well loved classic, but a modern twist has members of the audience reading the magician's mind and turns it into something new entirely.
EXPERIENCE AND PERSONALITY
In magic, as with many other things in life, confidence is king. Penzance magicians with years of experience in their lockers will be much more able to adapt and change with the different personalities of a group than a magician who's just getting started in the business. From time to time magic tricks go wrong, and you want someone who can turn these mistakes into an integral part of the act and not freeze. Having the confidence and experience to accomplish this cannot be learned overnight.
With experience also comes the knowledge of successfully working the audience. What you certainly don't need at your event in Penzance is a performer who causes embarrassment, with remarks that are unsuitable for your guests. What you actually want is a magician who can chat to anyone at your function on their level, or at least close to it. A magician should engage with your guests and put them at ease as he performs.
There'll always be people who wish to know precisely how certain tricks are done; a great magician shouldn't ever use tricks that are simple to figure out, or give away their innermost secrets. A cabaret style magician in Penzance, unlike table and close up magicians, can use a scripted performance, although even so they should be able to be adaptable and make it free-flowing to react to any change in the situation. A genuine magician should be a performer at your party in Penzance, who provides your guests with a memorable "OMG" moment, not someone who thoughtlessly strolls around doing a magic trick here and there before pocketing the fee and leaving.
FINDING A TOP NOTCH MAGICIAN IN PENZANCE
There are lots of web pages and adverts for magicians and entertainers in the Penzance area. Tracking down a magician for your budget can be easier through an agency. If you've got friends or relatives who've hired a local magician previously it's an excellent idea to ask for their recommendations and advice. If you do ask for advice from friends or neighbours, check out what style of event they held in order to compare it with your intended event.

Style - Do they interact with individual guests and small groups in a casual way, or do they put on a cabaret style show to entertain the entire crowd.
Experience - Have they performed at many events/parties, and how long have they been working as a magician.
Performance - Will it be a one time performance (cabaret style), or will it be broken up to provide an entire evening of entertainment?
Don't automatically pick out the cheapest quote, consider how each Penzance magic act will work within your event planning and choose accordingly. All that's needed now is for you to settle back and savour the whole experience as your magician gets the party started, and makes it a memorable occasion for all of your guests.
AFFILIATIONS & QUALIFICATIONS
With no formal qualifications or career advancement, magicians learn their craft in complete secrecy, or in many cases are self-taught. Magic clubs all around the country welcome magicians of all ages to share hints, tricks and tips, but the most famous club is The Magic Circle.
Only the world's top magicians and illusionists can become part of the most prized membership in the field. There's no guaranteed membership of the Magic Circle and those applying have to be endorsed by two active members before they are invited to take part in an interview and, if successful, demonstrate their magic.
If they get past these two stages the last say on whether they can become a member is decided by the ruling Council of the Magic Circle. Only when these steps have been taken can a magician enter into the famous halls of magic and have pride in knowing that they are at the very pinnacle of their career.
