Over the last decade or so, magicians have become one of the most popular choices for doing the entertainment at corporate events, dinner parties, birthdays and wedding receptions in Berkhamsted. There's been a huge shift from them being viewed as kid's entertainers, and are now regularly chosen for the more mature audience.
It is a wonderful experience to see a skilled magician work close up, and regardless how frantically you try, not be able to figure out the secrets to the magic.
You might want your magician to perform a cabaret style show, or perhaps you'd rather have more informal magic as they mingle up close with your guests; either way, they are going to be entertained and enthralled. So, how do you pick out what magician is best for your event in Berkhamsted?
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN BERKHAMSTED
The first thing you ought to do is look at the people attending your event or party. Consider the type of event you're staging and the ages of the guests who'll be there. Knowing the expectations of your guests should enable you to choose the right magician.
Because every function is different, you will need to understand exactly what you expect from the magician, so you don't make a mistake and hire the wrong type. To just book any old magician without carrying out this research could be a huge mistake. Wedding events usually involve a mixture of ages, and a magician who regularly performs at events like stag or hen parties will probably not be the perfect choice. On the other hand, a kids magician at a wedding party might be embarrassing for both the happy couple, and the magician.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Close-up magic is always an extremely popular choice for informal occasions and parties, but you also have the option of street style magicians, sleight of hand magicians and pick-pockets. If your function calls for something more formal, or needs to be performed within set times, look at hiring a corporate, stage or cabaret magician to amaze your entire audience.
Popular for guests of all age groups, and sure to keep everyone guessing are mind readers and mentalists. This time honoured magic style can be changed completely when the magician twists it around and has the audience read their mind.
EXPERIENCE AND PERSONALITY
In magic, as with many other things, confidence is key. With experience comes confidence, and a good Berkhamsted magician can adapt quickly to ever changing situations amongst your guests. There are certainly occasions when magic tricks go awry, and where an unskilled magician might flounder, a seasoned professional will turn it around to his or her advantage. This is when the years of experience of performing to audiences comes in handy.
A talented magician will also know how to work the crowd successfully. What you certainly do not want at your function in Berkhamsted is a magician who causes embarrassment, with comments that are not suitable for your guests. The capability to interact with all guests of any age is a pre-requisite for any talented magician in Berkhamsted. What turns a good magician into an incredible one, is the skill to make your guests feel comfortable, especially if they have volunteered to take part in a magic trick.
It is also a sign of a great magician not to reveal his or her secrets, or have tricks that are obvious or easy to deduce. Also, they should not make use of scripted material, as working with a live audience can bring unexpected surprises at every turn of the cards. A magician should not just turn up to your event in Berkhamsted, knock out a few basic tricks and disappear, they must perform, interact and ensure that they give your audience an "OMG" moment to remember.
FINDING A QUALITY BERKHAMSTED MAGICIAN
Berkhamsted has a huge amount of gifted party magicians and entertainers who will be happy to perform at your function. You can select from individuals or book through a larger entertainment agency to try and find the best bang for your buck. If you've got relatives or friends who've hired a magician previously it is an excellent idea to ask them for their advice. Take into account the kind of function that they held, and if this is similar to yours in the ages and expectations of guests.
Choose at least 3 local magicians who you think will be suited to your event in Berkhamsted and make a general enquiry with either them or their management team. You'll need to enquire about:
Style - Do they interact with small groups and individual guests in a relaxed way, or do they put on a cabaret show to entertain a crowd.
Performance - For how long does the show last, whether it's a stage magician, or if they are an up-close magician who mingles with your guests, what time will they start and end?
Experience - How long have they been working as a professional magician, and how many shows have they given?
Suitability - Do they regard themselves as a kids entertainer, or are they suitable for older, more mature audiences.
Choosing the best magician from the answers they provide may mean that you don't opt for the lowest priced magician in Berkhamsted; however you will have made a good choice. You will now be able to take it easy, with the entertainment organised, and enjoy the magical performance with your guests on the evening.
AFFILIATIONS & QUALIFICATIONS
With no formal qualifications or career progression, magicians learn their craft in relative secrecy, or in most cases teach themselves over the course of many years. Many magicians of all ages are members of local magic clubs, however the one that they all aspire to join is the prestigious, Magic Circle.
Only those magicians in Berkhamsted who've proven that they are worthy candidates are able to become members of The Magic Circle. The Magic Circle is incredibly demanding with regards to accepting new members, and any prospective magician must be endorsed by two current members, attend an interview and then display their magic abilities.
Only when they have passed these stages will a vote be cast by the Magic Circle Council on whether to approve them as members. Once all of these demands have been fulfilled and verified, a magician will receive the honoured membership of the premier magic club in the world.
CHILDREN'S MAGICIANS BERKHAMSTED
A footnote on magicians for kids parties; professional kids magicians will never be offended or upset if you ask about references and background checks. All people working with children are required to have a DBS background check completed, and kid's magicians are amongst those that do.
Energy and entertainment are the key to a kids magician skillset, and they should be able to keep all ages of kids mesmerised throughout their show. Some may have particular age brackets their act is more suitable for, and if that is the case they should ask about the age range at your party. With the hectic pace of keeping kids amused and entertained, the magician should also be an excellent entertainer who can quickly adapt to changing environments.
