Magicians have become one of the most popular entertainment choices for wedding receptions, corporate events, dinner parties and birthdays over the last couple of decades. They are still very popular for kids parties, but owing to TV shows such as, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are sought after by more mature audiences.
Having a magician at your table or perform in front of you with close up magic is a terrific experience, and one that will certainly leave you wondering the mysteries behind the tricks.
A skilled magician will have everyone mesmerised as they demonstrate impromptu magic while mingling with the guests, or put on a more conventional cabaret stage show. So, how do you decide what magician you need for your event in Shanklin?
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN SHANKLIN
The very first thing you should do is look at which people are coming to your party or event. Is it a children's party, corporate event, wedding reception or other occasion that you want a magician for? Choosing the most suitable magician, and asking them the appropriate questions should be easier when you've some idea of what you're expecting from them.
The difference between a fun party and a corporate event can be quite different and you might hire the wrong kind of magician if you don't research or recognise your exact requirements. You could make a huge mistake in booking a magician without doing this research. Wedding parties, for example are generally a mixture of age groups, and a magician who regularly does events like hen or stag parties is probably not the ideal choice. It is also the case that a kids magic show may not be appropriate for more mature audiences.
Informal gatherings are good for demonstrating close-up magic to small groups, and sleight of hand magicians and pickpockets performing various kinds of "street" magic usually go down a storm. For more formal gatherings you should consider a stage, corporate, or after dinner cabaret magician.
Mind readers and mentalists are also great fun and will bewilder all of your guests, not just the chosen targets. This time honoured magic trick can be changed completely when the magician turns it around and has the audience read their mind.
PERSONALITY AND EXPERIENCE
Experience is everything when it comes to performing magic. An experienced Shanklin magician will be able to change their act to suit different situations, in a professional and seamless manner. There are occasions when tricks go awry, and where an inexperienced magician might struggle to recover, an experienced professional will turn it around. This is where the years of experience of working with groups of people comes in handy.
With experience also comes the knowledge of working the crowd. What you certainly don't need at your party or event in Shanklin is a performer who causes insult or embarrassment, with remarks that do not suit your guests. A professional magician should be able to interact with all the guests, regardless of background or age. What turns a decent magician into a great one, is the skill to put your audience at ease, particularly if they have volunteered for a magic trick.
Also, it is the mark of a good magician not to expose his (or her) secrets, or have magic tricks that are obvious to deduce. A cabaret style magician in Shanklin, unlike close-up and table magicians, can use a scripted show, although even so they should be able to be versatile and make it free-flowing to allow for any change in the circumstances. A magician should never just show up to your event in Shanklin, knock out a few tricks and walk away, they must perform, interact and make certain they give the guests an "OMG" moment.
FINDING A GOOD SHANKLIN MAGICIAN
There are plenty of webpages and adverts for magicians and entertainers in and around Shanklin, Isle of Wight. Finding a magician who fits your budget may be somewhat easier through an entertainment company. If you have neighbours or friends who've hired a local magician in the past it's a good idea to ask them for their advice and recommendations. When given recommendations, don't forget to check the age brackets and sort of event that the magician attended so you can compare it to your function.
Pick out at least three local magicians who you think will be suitable for your party or event in Shanklin and make a general enquiry with them or their agency. You will be looking for the following answers from each:
Performance - Will it be a one time cabaret style performance, or will it be broken up to supply a whole evening of entertainment?
Suitability - Do not make the oversight of hiring a kid's magic act for an all adult event.
Experience - For how long have they been a professional magician, and approximately how many shows have they given?
Don't automatically choose the cheapest quote, look into how each one would work within your planning and choose according to suitability. You will now be able to take it easy, with the entertainment organised, and join in the magical experience on the big day.
QUALIFICATIONS AND AFFILIATIONS
