Magician Plymouth Devon (PL1): If you're planning a special party or event in the Plymouth area, and you want to make it unique and unforgettable, why not think about hiring a magician.
Magicians have become one of the most popular entertainment choices for birthdays, corporate events, dinner parties and weddings over the last few years. They're still very popular for children's birthday parties, but owing to TV programs such as, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are an automatic choice for audiences of a more mature nature.
Having a talented magician at your table or perform in front of you with close up magic is a terrific experience, and one which will leave you wondering the mystical secrets behind the tricks.
From mingling with guests and performing impromptu magic tricks, to a conventional stage show; a skilled magician will have everyone at your function looking on mesmerised. But what kind of magician will you need?
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN PLYMOUTH
The first thing you need to do is look at which people are attending your party or event. Think about the sort of event you're holding and the ages of the people who'll be present. Choosing the most suitable magician, and asking them the right questions will be easier when you have some idea of what you are expecting from them.
The variations between a fun party and a corporate event can be massively different and you could hire the wrong type of magician if you fail to research or recognise your precise requirements. By doing this elementary research and knowing just what you want, you lessen the chances of booking an inappropriate choice of magician. An adult entertainer may have magic tricks more appropriate for a stag party or hen party than to a formal corporate event, or a function where kids are in attendance. Alternatively, a kids magician at a wedding reception might be a bit embarrassing for the happy couple, and the magician.
Informal occasions and parties are perfect for sleight of hand experts, street style magicians and close-up magic who'll intermingle with guests as they work. For more formal gatherings you should consider a corporate, stage, or after dinner cabaret magician.
Very exciting for all ages are mentalists and mind readers, who can keep an audience second guessing for long after the show. Certain magicians can even switch this round and get a member of the audience to read their mind - the ultimate twist to a classic magic trick.
EXPERIENCE AND PERSONALITY
Experience and confidence are the key weapons in a magician's armoury. Plymouth magicians with many years of experience behind them will be much more able to adapt and change to a group's different personalities than a magician who is just getting started in the business. If things goes wrong during a trick, as sometimes occurs, a seasoned magician will turn it to his or her advantage and turn it into part of the show, whereas somebody just setting out in the profession could become flustered over the mistake. Gaining the experience and confidence to achieve this cannot be learned overnight.
A skilled magician will also have the experience of working the audience to good advantage. When a magician in Plymouth finds this hard to achieve, it can easily turn into a rather embarrassing experience for everybody. What you actually want is a magician who can talk to anybody at your event on their level, or as near to it as possible. A magician should be able to engage with your guests and put them at ease as he (or she) performs.
There'll always be individuals who wish to know exactly how particular tricks are done; a good magician should never use tricks that are simple to deduce, or disclose their innermost secrets. They cannot make use of scripting, unless it is a set cabaret style act, and even then it needs to be free flowing and ready for adaptation should the need arise. You will be looking for a performer who interacts with the guests and gives your event a real OMG moment to remember, not just somebody who strolls in, does a few basic tricks, pockets the fee and leaves.
FINDING A TOP NOTCH PLYMOUTH MAGICIAN
If you search on the internet you'll find a good few magicians in the Plymouth area available to book. You can choose from individuals or book through a larger entertainment company to try and find the best value for money. If you've been to a neighbour's party where you watched a good magician's performance, get their telephone number and ask what they cost. Keep in mind the type of function that they held, and if it is similar to yours in the expectations and ages of partygoers.
Choose 2 or 3 local magicians you think will be suitable for your party in Plymouth and make an initial enquiry with them or their management team. You are seeking to learn:
Suitability - Inform them about the type of function you're staging, i.e. children's birthday, hen/stag party, wedding reception etc, and ask if they can perform for that demographic.

You should be positive at this point that your magician will be ready to set your event off with a bang and create a memorable and unique party experience for everybody.
