Magician Stoke-on-Trent Staffordshire (ST1): When you're trying to find something a little bit extra for your event or party in the Stoke-on-Trent area, and you would like a mysterious evening that no-one will forget; you should hire a magician.
Magicians have become the subject of a huge increase in popularity in recent years, and are the ideal choice of entertainment for wedding receptions, birthdays, dinner parties and corporate events in Stoke-on-Trent. They are still the first choice for children's parties, but owing to television shows such as, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are sought after by more mature audiences.
It certainly is a wonderful experience to watch a professional magician work close up, and regardless how hard you try, not be able to figure out the secret of those magic tricks.
You may want your magician to put on a cabaret style show, or maybe you'd prefer more informal magic as they mingle up close with your guests; either way, they will be entertained and captivated. The most difficult part is picking the right magician for your event in Stoke-on-Trent.
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN STOKE-ON-TRENT
Before you do anything, study the list of guests who are attending your event. Is it a wedding reception, corporate event, children's party or other occasion for which you want a magician? Knowing yours, and your guests, expectations from the event will enable you to pick the right magician.
The variations between a fun party and a corporate event can be hugely different and you could hire the wrong style of magician if you fail to research or recognise your precise requirements. You could make a big mistake in booking a magician without doing this elementary research. If your party is a formal corporate function or a mixture of children and adults, you'll not want a risqué magician who would go down a storm at a stag or hen party. It is also obvious that a children's magic show may not be the best thing for more mature, adult audiences.
Parties and informal occasions are ideal for street style magicians, close-up magic and sleight of hand experts who'll intermingle with guests as they work. For those more formal gatherings you may prefer an after dinner cabaret, stage or corporate magician.
Exciting for all ages are mentalists and mind readers, who can keep an audience guessing for long after the show. This time honoured magic trick can be changed completely when the magician turns it around and gets the audience to read their mind.
EXPERIENCE & PERSONALITY
In magic, confidence is king. A seasoned Stoke-on-Trent magician will be able to adapt their act to suit different situations, in a seamless and professional fashion. If things goes wrong during a trick, as quite often happens, an experienced magician will turn it around and turn it into an integral part of the show, while somebody just setting out in the profession may be flustered by the failure. That's where years of experience entertaining audiences comes to the fore.
With experience also comes the knowledge required to successfully work the audience. When a magician in Stoke-on-Trent finds this hard to achieve, it can soon turn into a rather embarrassing experience for everyone involved. You want a magician who can chat to anyone at your function on their level, or at least near to it. A magician should put your guests at ease and engage with them as he or she performs.
Although the technicalities of some magic tricks can be guessed at, a professional magician should not ever disclose their secrets. Also, they should not depend on scripted material, because performing to a live audience can throw up unexpected surprises at every turn of the cards. An authentic magician will be a performer at your event in Stoke-on-Trent, who offers your guests with an unforgettable "OMG" moment, not someone who just walks around the room doing a magic trick every so often before leaving with his wages.
FINDING AN EXCELLENT MAGICIAN IN STOKE-ON-TRENT
If you do a quick search on the internet you'll find many magicians in and around Stoke-on-Trent available for hire. Whether they are individual performers, or part of an entertainment company, you want the best in your price range. If you've been to a neighbour's party where you watched a good magician's performance, ask for their number and how much they cost. If you do ask for recommendations from friends and neighbours, ask about what kind of event they held so as to compare it with your planned event.
Make an initial enquiry with 2 or 3 local agencies or magicians in Stoke-on-Trent and ask for quotes. You'll be looking for the following answers from each of them:
Style - Are they stage show magicians or do they do close-up magic tricks as they mingle with the guests.
Suitability - Do they see themselves more as kids entertainers, or are they appropriate for more mature, adult audiences.
Experience - Have they entertained at many parties/functions, and for how many years have they been working as a magician.
Performance - How long does the performance last for, whether it is a stage magician, or if they are an up-close magician who interacts with the audience, what time will they start and finish?
Don't automatically pick out the cheapest quotation, look into how each one would work within your plan and choose according to suitability. All you'll need to do then is settle back and savour the whole experience as your magician gets the party started, and makes it a memorable occasion for all the guests.
QUALIFICATIONS AND AFFILIATIONS
With no official qualifications or prospect of career progression, magicians are trained in complete secrecy, or teach themselves. There are of course a whole host of locally based magic clubs scattered around the country that share the tricks of the trade and give support, although the biggest and most exclusive membership for any magician is The Magic Circle.
Only the top rated magicians and entertainers in the world are able to become a part of the most sought after membership in the field. To be accepted as a member of the Magic Circle you first have to be advocated by two existing members, before the interview and demonstration stages can be held.
Only when they've passed these stages will the decision be made by the Magic Circle Council on whether or not to accept them as members. Only when these steps have been taken can a magician enter the famed halls of magic and have pride in knowing they are at the pinnacle of their profession.
