Magicians have become the most popular entertainment choice for birthdays, dinner parties, corporate events and wedding receptions over the last couple of decades. They're still the number one choice for kids parties, however there has been a big shift in their popularity for performing at more adult special events.
It's an amazing experience to watch a professional magician work up close, and no matter how hard you try, not be able to figure out the secrets of those magic tricks.
A quality magician will have everybody enthralled as they demonstrate impromptu magic as they mingle with the guests, or put on a more conventional cabaret style stage show. However, what type of magician should you hire?
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN STOWMARKET
The very first thing you ought to do is consider the people who are attending your event or party. It's obvious a dinner party will require a different form of magician to a children's party. Choosing a suitable magician, and asking them the appropriate questions will be much easier when you have some idea of precisely what you need from them.
Since every event is different, you'll need to understand exactly what you expect from the magician, so you do not make a mistake and hire the wrong style. To just book in any style of magician without carrying out this groundwork may be asking for trouble. An adult entertainer might have magic tricks that are more suitable to a stag or hen party than to a formal corporate event, or a function where young children are in attendance. On the flip side of the coin, a magician who normally performs at kids parties may not have the finesse for a corporate event or wedding function, causing embarrassment for all concerned.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Close-up magic is always a very popular choice for informal occasions and parties, but you also have the option of sleight of hand magicians, street style magicians and pick-pockets. If your function calls for something a bit more formal, or needs to be performed within a set time frame, look at booking a cabaret, corporate or stage magician to impress your whole audience.
Very exciting for all ages are mind readers and mentalists, who can keep the whole audience guessing long after the show has finished. Mind reading is a timeless classic, however a modern twist sees the audience reading the magician's mind and changes it into something completely new.
PERSONALITY & EXPERIENCE
Confidence is everything when it comes to performing magic. A seasoned Stowmarket magician should be able to change their act to suit different situations, in a professional and seamless manner. If things goes wrong during a magic trick, as occasionally occurs, an experienced magician will turn it around and turn it into part of the show, whereas somebody just starting out in the profession may be flustered by the mistake. That's where many years of experience working with groups of people comes to the forefront.
With the benefit of experience also comes the knowledge of successfully working the audience. What you don't want at your event in Stowmarket is a magic act that causes embarrassment or insult, with comments that don't suit your guests. What you actually want is a magician who can speak to anybody at your function on their level, or as near to it as possible. They must have the ability to engage with all of your guests and put them at ease during the performance.
There'll always be individuals who wish to know precisely how certain tricks are executed; a great magician should never use magic tricks that are simple to figure out, or disclose their innermost secrets. They cannot depend on a script, unless it's a cabaret act, and even then it must be ready for adaptation should the necessity arise. A true magician will be a real performer at your occasion in Stowmarket, who offers guests with an unforgettable "OMG" moment, not someone who thoughtlessly walks around the room doing the odd magic trick here and there before departing with his wages.
FINDING AN EXCELLENT MAGICIAN IN STOWMARKET
There are plenty of adverts and web pages for entertainers and magicians in the Stowmarket area. You'll be able to choose from individual performers or book through a large entertainment agency to try and find the best value for your money. If you've got relatives or friends who've hired a magician in the past it is a great idea to ask them for their advice. If you do seek testimonials from friends and family, ask about what kind of event they held so as to compare it with your proposed event.
Get price quotes from 2 or 3 magicians or management companies in Stowmarket when you're making your preliminary enquiries. You will want to know from each of them:
Style - Will they perform close-up magic with small groups and individual guests in an informal way, or are they a cabaret style magician to entertain a whole audience.
Experience - For how long have they been performing as a professional magician, and approximately how many events have they attended, or shows have they given?
Performance - How long is the performance, if it is a cabaret style magician, or whether they are an up-close magician who mingles with the audience, what time will they start and end?
Suitability - Do they regard themselves more as a kid's entertainer, or are they suitable for more mature, older audiences.
Don't automatically choose the lowest quotation, consider how each one would work within your plan and choose according to suitability. You should be reassured at this point that your magician will be fully prepared to kick start your event and create a memorable and unique party for everyone.
