Magician Woking Surrey (GU18, GU19 and GU21): If you're planning a special party or event in the Woking area, and you would like to make it unique and unforgettable, you should consider booking a magician.
Over the last few years, magicians have become an extremely popular choice for providing the entertainment at corporate events, wedding receptions, dinner parties and birthdays in Woking. They are also still the top choice for kids parties, however there has been a significant shift in their popularity for putting on a show at more adult special events.
There's something extra special about seeing a professional magician up close and in the flesh, especially when you just can't work out how they did it.
A good magician will have everybody enthralled as they perform improvised magic as they mingle with the guests, or host a more formal cabaret stage show. But what style of magician will you need?
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN WOKING
Before you do anything, take a good look at the list of guests who are coming to your event. Think of the sort of event you're holding and the age brackets of the people who will be present. Knowing yours, and your guests, expectations from the event should enable you to pick the best magician.
It's quite easy, if you fail to do your research in knowing just what you require, to hire the wrong type of magician for your event. By doing your research and knowing exactly what you need, you reduce the risk of hiring an inappropriate style of magic act. Wedding events usually involve a wide mix of ages, and a magician who is more used to events like stag or hen parties is probably not the ideal choice. On the other hand, a kids magician at a wedding reception might be a bit embarrassing for the happy couple, and the magician.
Informal functions are good for demonstrating close-up magic to small groups, and pickpockets and sleight of hand magicians performing "street" magic always go down well. For those more formal occasions you may prefer a corporate, stage, or after dinner cabaret magician.
Popular for guests of all age groups, and always keeping everybody guessing are mentalists and mind readers. This well loved magic trick can be transformed when the magician twists it around and has the audience read their mind.
PERSONALITY & EXPERIENCE
Confidence is key when it comes to performing magic. Woking magicians with years of experience behind them will be more able to change and adapt with a group's different personalities than a magician who is just setting out in the business. If something goes awry during a magic trick, as occasionally happens, a seasoned magician will turn it to his advantage and turn it into part of the show, whereas somebody just starting out in the profession could be flustered by the mistake. That's where many years of experience performing to audiences comes to the fore.
A skilled magician will also know how to work the audience to good advantage. What you certainly don't want at your event or party in Woking is a magic act that causes embarrassment or insult, with remarks that don't suit the guest list. A professional magician should be capable of interacting with every guest, regardless of age or background. What turns a good magician into an amazing one, is the ability to put your audience at ease, especially if they've volunteered for a trick.
Although the technicalities of some magic tricks can be guessed at, a skilled magician should not ever disclose the mysteries behind their magic. They cannot make use of scripting, unless it is a set cabaret act, and even then it should be free flowing and ready for adaptation should the need arise. You will want to book a magician in Woking who interacts with the guests and gives your event a real "OMG" moment, not somebody who walks in, knocks out a few tricks and leaves.
