Magicians have become one of the most popular entertainment choices for birthdays, wedding receptions, corporate events and dinner parties in recent times. There's been a big shift from them being seen as purely kids entertainers, and are now regularly chosen for adult audiences.
It's a unique experience to watch a professional magician work up close, and no matter how desperately you try, not be able to figure out the secrets to the magic.
You may want your magician to perform a cabaret style show, or maybe you would prefer more informal magic while mingling up close with your guests; either way, they will have fun and be mesmerised. But what kind of magician will you need?
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN ST NEOTS
Before you get in touch with an entertainment company or magician you should first take a good look at your guest list. Consider the type of event you are staging and the age brackets of people who'll be there. Knowing yours, and your guests, expectations from the event should enable you to pick the most suitable magician.
The variations between a fun party and a more formal corporate event can be massively different and you could easily hire the wrong kind of magician if you don't research or appreciate your exact requirements. By doing this elementary research and knowing just what you need, you lessen the chance of booking an inappropriate choice of magic act. An adult entertainer may perform magic tricks more appropriate for a stag party or hen party than to a function where children are present, or a more formal corporate event. On the other hand, a kids magician at a wedding reception may be embarrassing for both the magician, and the happy couple.
Informal functions allow close up magic to be performed to small groups of guests, and sleight of hand magicians and pickpockets performing "street" magic always go down a storm. Formal and corporate events may require a timed show presented to the whole audience, and in cases like this consider stage, cabaret or corporate magicians.
Mind readers and mentalists are also very entertaining and will baffle everyone, not just the selected targets. Certain masters of magic can even flip this around and get a member of the audience to read their mind - the supreme twist to a well loved classic magic trick.
EXPERIENCE & PERSONALITY
Confidence is everything when it comes to magic. St Neots magicians with years of experience in their lockers will be more able to adapt and change to a group's different personalities than a magician who is just setting out in the profession. If something goes wrong during a magic trick, as sometimes happens, a seasoned magician will turn it to his advantage and turn it into part of the show, whereas somebody just starting out in the profession could become flustered over the failure. This is where many years of experience working with groups of people comes in handy.
Working the crowd and ensuring that everybody is included is another skill that is gained from years of experience. If your St Neots magician can't accomplish this it is probable you will wind up with a cringey experience that is simply embarrassing. The ability to connect with guests of any age or background is a base requirement for any skilled magician in St Neots. They must have the ability to engage with all of your guests and put them at ease throughout the show.
There will always be guests who want to know precisely how particular tricks are executed; a good magician shouldn't ever use tricks that are simple to deduce, or reveal their innermost secrets. They should also not make use of scripted material, as entertaining a live audience can throw up unexpected surprises at every turn. A magician shouldn't just show up to your party in St Neots, knock out a few simple tricks and walk away, they need to interact, perform and make sure they give the guests an "OMG" moment.
FINDING A GOOD MAGICIAN IN ST NEOTS
If you search online you will find plenty of magicians in and around St Neots available to book. Whether they are individual performers, or part of a large entertainment company, you want the best for your budget. If you've been to a friend's party where you enjoyed a magician's act, ask for their number and what they cost. Keep in mind the sort of event they held, and whether it is similar to yours in the expectations and ages of guests.
Pick 2 or 3 magicians you think will be suitable for your party in St Neots and make a general enquiry either with them or their agency. You will want to know from each of them:
Experience - Have they done shows at many events/parties, and how long have they been a magician.
Performance - How long is the performance, if it's a cabaret style magician, or if they are an up-close magician who mixes and interacts with the audience, what time will they start and end?
Suitability - Tell them the style of gathering you are holding, i.e. wedding reception, kid's birthday bash, hen/stag party etc, and ask if they can perform for that demographic.
Once you have all your responses, together with, the quotes - you can pick out a magician for your function. All you'll need to do then is sit back and enjoy the whole experience as your magician gets the party started, and makes it an unforgettable occasion for all of your guests.
AFFILIATIONS & QUALIFICATIONS
Magicians don't need to have any official qualifications, and training carried out in the field is a well kept secret. Magic clubs all around the United Kingdom help magicians of any age to share hints, tricks and tips, but the most exclusive club of them all is the illustrious Magic Circle.
Only the world's foremost magicians and illusionists can become a part of the most prized magic club in the industry. The Magic Circle is extremely demanding when it comes to its membership, and any magician hoping to gain access must be invited by 2 standing members, sit an interview and then prove their magical abilities.
If they pass these two stages the last judgment on whether or not they can become members is made by the Council of the Magic Circle. When all these prerequisites have been met and verified, a magician will receive the respected membership of the premier magic club in the world.
