Magicians have become one of the most popular entertainment choices for dinner parties, wedding receptions, birthdays and corporate events in recent years. There has been a big shift from them being seen as purely kids entertainers, and have now become a regular choice for more mature adult audiences.
It's an amazing experience to watch a professional magician work close up, and regardless how frantically you try, not be able to figure out the secret of those magic tricks.
You might like your magician to perform a cabaret style show, or perhaps you would prefer more informal magic while mingling up close with your guests; either way, they are going to be entertained and mesmerised. But what style of magician should you book?
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN STAFFORD
The first thing to do is consider the people who are coming to your party or event. It's obvious a corporate event will need a different type of magician to a kids party. Picking the right magician, and asking them the appropriate questions will be far easier when you've some expectations of what you'd like from them.
The variation between a corporate event and that of a fun party can be hugely different and you could easily hire the wrong kind of magician if you fail to research or recognise your requirements. To just book a magician without doing this elementary research may be asking for trouble. If your event is a formal corporate function or a mixture of adults and children, you won't want to hire a risqué magician who would go down a storm at a stag party or hen party. Alternatively, a kid's magician at a wedding event could be a bit embarrassing for both the happy couple, and the magician.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Informal occasions are good for demonstrating close-up magic to small groups, and sleight of hand magicians and pickpockets performing "street" magic usually go down a storm. If your event requires a more formal setting, or needs to be performed within a set time frame, consider hiring a stage, cabaret or corporate magician to impress the entire audience.
Mentalists and mind readers are also very entertaining and will confound everybody, not simply the chosen targets. Mind reading is a well loved classic, but a modern twist has members of the audience reading the magician's mind and turns it into something new entirely.
PERSONALITY & EXPERIENCE
Experience is key when it comes to magic. Confidence comes from practical experience, and a seasoned Stafford magician can quickly adapt to ever changing situations among your audience. Sometimes magic tricks go wrong, and you need an individual who can turn such mishaps into an integral part of the act and not dry up. Having the experience and confidence to accomplish this can't be learned overnight.
Working the audience and making sure everyone is included is another skill that is gained from years of experience. When a magician in Stafford finds this difficult to achieve, it can easily develop into a very embarrassing experience for everyone involved. You want a magician who can speak to anybody at your event on their own level, or at least close to it. They must be able to put all your guests at ease, and engage with them during the performance.
There will always be folks who want to know precisely how particular tricks are executed; a professional magician should never use magic tricks that are simple to figure out, or expose their innermost secrets. They cannot depend on a script, unless it's a cabaret style act, and even then it needs to be readily adaptable should the need arise. You will want to hire a performer who interacts and gives your event a true OMG moment to remember, not just somebody who walks in, does a few basic tricks, pockets the fee and "vanishes".
FINDING A GOOD MAGICIAN IN STAFFORD
There are plenty of adverts and webpages for party entertainers and magicians in the Stafford area. You'll be able to choose from individuals or go through a large entertainment company to try to find the best value for your money. If you have family or friends who've hired a magician previously it is a good idea to ask their recommendations and advice. Keep in mind the kind of event that they held, and whether this is similar to yours in the expectations and ages of the partygoers.
Get quotations from at least 3 magicians or agencies in Stafford when you are making your initial enquiries. You are looking to determine:
Suitability - Explain the sort of gathering you're staging, i.e. children's birthday, wedding reception, dinner party etc, and ask if they can perform for that demographic.
Performance - Will it be a once only performance (cabaret style), or will it be split up to provide an evening of entertainment at different times?
Don't always pick the lowest quotation, look at how each one would work within your planning and pick accordingly. All that's needed now is for you to settle back and enjoy the whole experience as your magician gets the party started, and makes it a memorable event for all the guests.
QUALIFICATIONS & AFFILIATIONS
