Magicians have become the most popular entertainment choice for birthdays, dinner parties, weddings and corporate events over the last couple of decades. They're still extremely popular for kid's birthday parties, but owing to TV programs like, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are sought after by audiences of a more mature nature.
It's a special experience to watch a talented magician work up close, and regardless how frantically you try, not be able to figure out the secret of those magic tricks.
A quality magician will have everyone captivated as they demonstrate improvised magic while mingling with the guests, or host a more conventional cabaret style stage show. The most challenging part is picking out the best magician for your party or event in Urmston.
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN URMSTON
The first thing you need to do is consider the people who are coming to your party or event. Is it a kids party, corporate event, wedding reception or other occasion that you want a magician for? Knowing the expectations of your guests will enable you to choose the right magician.
Because every event is different, you'll need to understand what you expect from the magician, so that you do not make a mistake in hiring the wrong type. By doing this elementary research and knowing just what you want, you lessen the chances of booking the wrong choice of magician. Wedding events are usually a mixture of ages, and a magician who is more used to events like hen parties or stag parties might not be the best choice. On the flip side, a magician who normally performs at kids birthday parties may not have the necessary level of finesse for a formal corporate event or wedding function, causing embarrassment for all concerned.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Informal functions are good for demonstrating close-up magic to small groups, and pickpockets and sleight of hand magicians performing "street" magic generally go down well. For those more formal gatherings you may prefer a corporate, stage, or after dinner cabaret magician.
Popular to people of any age, and sure to keep everyone guessing are mentalists and mind readers. Mind reading is a time honoured classic, but a modern twist sees members of the audience reading the magician's mind and changes it into something new.
EXPERIENCE & PERSONALITY
Experience is key when it comes to performing magic. Urmston magicians with years of experience behind them will be much more able to change and adapt to the different personalities of a group than a magician just getting going in the profession. There are certainly times when tricks go awry, and where an inexperienced magician might struggle, an experienced professional will turn it around. That's where the years of experience of performing to groups of people comes in handy.
Working the audience and making sure all the guests are included is also a skill that is gained from years of experience. When a magician in Urmston finds this hard to accomplish, it can easily be a very embarrassing experience for everyone involved. A skilled magician will be capable of interacting with everybody, regardless of age or background. The thing that turns a reasonable magician into an awesome one, is the capability to make all your guests feel comfortable, particularly if they have volunteered to take part in a magic trick.
There'll always be guests who want to know exactly how specific tricks are done; a great magician shouldn't ever disclose their secrets, or use tricks which are simple to deduce. They can't rely on a script, unless it's a cabaret act, and even then it needs to be readily adaptable should the need arise. You will want to book a magician in Urmston who interacts and gives your event a genuine "OMG" moment, not someone who walks in, does a few tricks, pockets the fee and leaves.
FINDING A QUALITY MAGICIAN IN URMSTON
The Urmston area has a huge amount of skilled magicians available for you event or party. Whether they are individual performers, or part of an entertainment agency, you will want the best for your budget. If you've got relatives or friends who've hired a magician in the past it's a good idea to ask their advice. If you do seek advice from friends or relatives, enquire about what type of celebration they held in order to compare it with your intended event.
Make an initial enquiry with a minimum of three agencies or magicians in Urmston and ask for price quotes. You will want to ask about:
Experience - Have they performed at many functions/parties, and how long have they been working as a magician.
Performance - For how long does the performance last, whether it's a stage magician, or whether they are an up-close magician who interacts with the audience, what time do they start and conclude?
Style - Do they perform close up magic as they mingle amongst tables and guests, or are they stage magicians.
Suitability - Do they regard themselves as a kid's entertainer, or are they suited to more mature, older audiences.
Picking the most suitable magician from the responses they provide might mean that you don't automatically choose the lowest priced magician in Urmston; however you will have made the best choice. You should be reassured at this stage that your magician will be able to set your event off with a bang and provide an unforgettable and unique party for everyone concerned.
QUALIFICATIONS AND AFFILIATIONS
