In recent years, magicians have become one of the most popular choices for entertaining at dinner parties, birthdays, wedding receptions and corporate events in Stretford. They are still the number one choice for children's parties, but there's been a huge shift in their popularity for performing at more adult special events.
It's a unique experience to watch a skilled magician work up close, and regardless how hard you try, not be able to work out the secrets to the magic.
You might like your magician to perform a cabaret style show, or maybe you would rather have more informal magic while mingling up close with your guests; in any case, they are going to be entertained and captivated. But what type of magician should you book?
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN STRETFORD
Before you make contact with a magician or entertainment company you should first of all study your guest list. Is it a kids party, corporate event, wedding or other occasion for why you need a magician? Picking the best magician, and asking them the appropriate questions is going to be far easier when you've got some expectations of exactly what you need from them.
The variations between a fun party and a more formal corporate event can be hugely different and you could easily hire the wrong kind of magician if you fail to research or appreciate your exact requirements. By doing this elementary research and knowing what you want, you reduce the chances of booking an inappropriate choice of magician. If your party is a formal corporate occasion or a combination of children and adults, you will not want to book a risqué magician who would go down a storm at a stag or hen party. On the other hand, a kids magician at a wedding reception may be embarrassing for the happy couple, and the magician.
Informal occasions allow close up magic to be performed to small groups, and sleight of hand magicians and pickpockets performing various kinds of "street" magic normally go down a storm. Corporate and formal events may require a timed show presented to the entire audience, and in cases like this consider cabaret, stage or corporate magicians.
Very exciting for guests of all ages are mind readers and mentalists, who can keep an audience second guessing for long after the show. This timeless magic trick can be transformed when the magician switches it round and has the audience read their mind.
EXPERIENCE & PERSONALITY
In magic, as with many other things, confidence is king. Stretford magicians with many years of experience behind them will be more able to change and adapt to the different personalities of an audience than a magician who's just getting going in the business. If something goes awry during a magic trick, as occasionally happens, a seasoned magician will turn it to his advantage and make it an integral part of the show, whereas someone just setting out in the business might become flustered over the failure. Gaining the experience and confidence to accomplish this cannot be learnt overnight.
A good magician will also know how to work the crowd to get the right responses. What you certainly don't want at your function in Stretford is a magician who causes embarrassment, with remarks that do not suit your guests. The ability to interact with audiences of any age or background is a pre-requisite for any professional magician in Stretford. A magician should be able to put your guests at ease and engage with them as he (or she) performs.
Also, it is a sign of a great magician not to expose his (or her) secrets, or have tricks that are obvious to deduce. They cannot rely on scripting, unless it is a set cabaret act, and even then it must be free flowing and readily adaptable should the necessity arise. A magician should not just rock up to your party in Stretford, do a few tricks and vanish, they need to interact, perform and ensure they give your audience a real "OMG" moment to remember.
FINDING AN EXCELLENT STRETFORD MAGICIAN
If you do a quick search on the internet you will find plenty of magicians in the Stretford area available for hire. You can pick from individuals or book through a larger entertainment company to try to find the best value for your money. If you have been to a friend's party where you watched a good magician's performance, get their telephone number and ask how much they charge. If you do seek advice from friends or neighbours, check out what kind of event they held so as to compare it with your proposed event.
Get quotes from two or three agencies or magicians in Stretford when you're making your preliminary enquiries. You'll be looking for answers to the following from each one:
Suitability - Do they regard themselves more as a children's entertainer, or are they suitable for more mature, adult audiences.
Choosing the best suited magician from the answers they provide might mean that you don't opt for the cheapest magician in Stretford; but you'll have made the best choice. You will be confident at this stage that your magician will be prepared to set your event off with a bang and create a unique and unforgettable experience for everyone concerned.
QUALIFICATIONS & AFFILIATIONS
There are no formal qualifications in the magician world, and training is either self-taught, or undertaken in secrecy. Magic clubs all around the UK will welcome magicians of any age to share hints, tips and tricks, but the most exclusive club is The Magic Circle.
Only the world's top magicians and illusionists are able to become part of the most desirable membership in the field. The Magic Circle is extremely serious about accepting new members, and any magician wanting to join must be endorsed by two currently active members, attend an interview and prove their magic expertise.
If they get past these two stages the last say on whether or not they can become a member is made by the Magic Circle Council. These stages must all be traversed before any magician can call themselves a member of The Magic Circle.
