Magicians have become the subject of a huge increase in popularity over the last decade or so, and have become the ideal entertainment choice for corporate events, birthdays, weddings and dinner parties in Redditch. They're still the number one choice for kid's parties, however there's been a big shift in their popularity for putting on a show at more adult special events.
It is a unique experience to watch a talented magician perform close up, and no matter how hard you try, not be able to work out the secrets to the magic.
From mingling with guests and performing impromptu magic tricks, to a formal stage show; a decent magician will have everyone at your event looking on amazed. However, what type of magician should you hire?
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN REDDITCH
The first thing you should do is consider the people who are attending your party or event. It's a given that a kids party will require a different type of magician than a dinner party. Knowing the expectations of your guests should enable you to pick out the right magician.
The distinction between a corporate event and that of a fun party can be quite different and you could hire the wrong style of magician if you don't research or appreciate your exact requirements. By doing your research and knowing exactly what you want, you reduce the chances of hiring an inappropriate style of magic act. 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 would go down well at a stag or hen party. It's also clear that a kid's magic act probably won't be the best thing for more mature, adult audiences.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Close-up table magic is always an extremely popular choice for parties and informal occasions, but you also have the option of sleight of hand magicians, pick-pockets and street magicians. Corporate and formal events will need a timed show performed to the entire audience, and in such cases look for cabaret, corporate or stage magicians.
Popular for guests of all ages, and sure to keep everybody guessing are mind readers and mentalists. This time honoured magic style can be completely changed when the magician twists it around and has the audience read their mind.
PERSONALITY & EXPERIENCE
Experience is everything when it comes to performing magic. A seasoned Redditch magician should be able to modify their act to suit different personalities, in a seamless and professional manner. There are certainly occasions when tricks don't work, and where an unskilled magician may flounder, a seasoned professional will turn it around. That's where years of experience entertaining groups of people comes in handy.
Working the crowd and ensuring everybody is included is also a skill that is gained from many years of experience. What you don't want at your event or party in Redditch is a magic act that causes embarrassment, with remarks that are unsuitable for the guest list. The capability to communicate with all guests of any age or background is a base requirement for any talented magician in Redditch. A magician should be able to put your guests at ease and engage with them as he (or she) performs.
There will always be people who want to know how certain tricks are done; a professional magician shouldn't ever use tricks that are easy to figure out, or expose their innermost secrets. They cannot rely on a script, unless it is a set cabaret act, and even then it must be free flowing and ready for adaptation should the need arise. A true magician will be a real performer at your event in Redditch, who provides guests with an unforgettable OMG moment, not somebody who simply strolls around doing the odd magic trick before pocketing the fee and leaving.
FINDING A GOOD REDDITCH MAGICIAN
The Redditch area has a fair number of talented party magicians and entertainers who will be delighted to perform at your event. Tracking down a magician to match your budget may be somewhat easier through an agency. If you've been to a friend's party where you saw a decent magician's show, ask for their contact details and what they charge. If you do seek recommendations from friends and family, ask about what type of celebration they held so as to compare it with your planned event.
Make a preliminary enquiry with 2 or 3 magicians or management companies in Redditch and ask for quotations. You're aiming to find out:
Experience - For how long have they been working as a professional magician, and approximately how many shows have they given?
Suitability - Do they regard themselves more as a younger person's entertainer, or are they appropriate for more mature, adult audiences.
Performance - Will it be a one time performance (cabaret style), or will it be split up to provide an evening of amusement at different times?
Style - Are they stage show magicians or do they perform close up magic as they mingle amongst tables and guests.
Picking the best magician from the replies that they provide may mean that you do not choose the cheapest magician in Redditch; but you'll have made a good choice. You should be reassured at this point that your magician will be fully prepared to kick start your event and provide an unforgettable and unique party experience for everybody.
AFFILIATIONS AND QUALIFICATIONS
With no formal qualifications or career progression, magicians learn their craft in total secrecy, or in many cases are self-taught. Magic clubs all around the country welcome magicians of any age to share tricks, tips and hints, but the most exclusive club of all is the much celebrated Magic Circle.
Only the most skillful magicians are even considered for membership of the Magic Circle, and if it's possible to book one of these for your celebration in Redditch you'll be honoured. There is no guaranteed membership and applicants have to be endorsed by 2 current members prior to being invited to sit an interview and, if this is successful, demonstrate their magic.
If they pass these stages the final say on whether they can become a member is decided by the ruling Council of the Magic Circle. These stages must all be traversed before any magician can call themselves a member of the famous The Magic Circle.
