Having a magician perform close-up magic at your table is a fantastic experience, and one that will certainly leave you wondering the mysteries behind the tricks.

You might want your magician to put on a cabaret type show, or maybe you'd rather have more informal magic while mingling up close with your guests; either way, they will be entertained and enthralled. The most challenging part is deciding on a suitable magician for your party or event in Bideford.


Before you do anything, take a good look at the list of guests who are coming to your event. It goes without saying that a children's party will need a different type of magician than a corporate event. Knowing the expectations of your guests will allow you to choose the most suitable magician.

Because every event is different, you will need to appreciate exactly 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 precisely what you need, you reduce the chances of hiring an inappropriate style of magic act. If your event is a mix of adults and children, or a formal corporate function, you won't want to hire the sort of risqué magician who may work well at a hen party of stag party. On the other hand, a children's magician at a wedding event might be a bit embarrassing for both the magician, and the happy couple.

Mentalists and mind readers are also very entertaining and will leave an impact on all of your guests, not just the chosen targets. Certain skillful magicians can even switch this round and get the audience to read their mind - the ultimate twist to a classic magic trick.
