Magicians have become the most popular entertainment choice for birthdays, dinner parties, wedding receptions and corporate events over the last decade or so. There's been a huge shift from them being viewed as solely kid's entertainers, and are now regularly chosen for more mature adult audiences.
It certainly is an amazing experience to watch a professional magician perform close up, and regardless how hard you try, not be able to work out the secrets to the magic.
From mingling with your guests and performing impromptu magic, to a formal, cabaret style stage show; a decent magician will have everyone at your function looking on amazed. So, how do you pick out which magician is best for your event in Peterborough?
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN PETERBOROUGH
Before contacting a magician or entertainment company you should first of all take a good look at your event guest list. Is it a wedding, corporate event, kid's party or other occasion for why you need a magician? Having a feeling for what your guests are expecting should help you to ask the right questions of your prospective magician.
The distinction between a fun party and a corporate event can be very different and you could easily hire the wrong type of magician if you don't research or recognise your exact requirements. By doing your research and knowing precisely what you want, you reduce the risk of hiring the wrong style of magic act. If your party is a formal corporate function or a combination of children and adults, you won't want to hire the sort of risqué magician who may work well at a stag party or hen party. On the other hand, a kid's magician at a wedding reception may be a little embarrassing for both the happy couple, and the magician.
Close-up magic is always an extremely popular choice for parties and informal occasions, but you can also choose from pick-pockets, street magicians and sleight of hand experts. If your occasion calls for something more formal, or needs to be performed within set times, look at hiring a corporate, stage or cabaret magician to impress the entire audience.
Popular to people of all ages, and sure to keep everyone guessing are mind readers and mentalists. Mind reading is a timeless classic, but a modern twist has audience members reading the magician's mind and turns it into something totally new.
PERSONALITY & EXPERIENCE
Experience is everything when it comes to performing magic. Confidence comes from practical experience, and a good Peterborough magician can quickly adapt to ever changing situations amongst your guests. From time to time magic tricks go awry, and you need a magician who can turn such mishaps into an integral part of the act and not freeze. This is where the years of experience of working with audiences comes in handy.
A talented magician will also have the experience of working the audience effectively. If your Peterborough magician can't do this it is probable that you will end up with a winceworthy experience that is embarrassing. What you really want is a magician who can talk to anyone at your function on their level, or as near to it as possible. A magician should be able to put your guests at ease and engage with them as he performs.
It is also a sign of a good magician not to reveal his (or her) secrets, or perform tricks that are obvious or easy to deduce. Also, they should not make use of scripted material, since entertaining a live audience can bring surprises at every turn of the cards. You'll be looking for a magician in Peterborough who interacts with the guests and gives your event a real "OMG" moment to remember, not somebody who strolls in, knocks out a few simple tricks, pockets the fee and leaves.
