Magicians have become the most popular entertainment choice for corporate events, wedding receptions, dinner parties and birthdays over the last couple of decades. There's been a significant shift from them being seen as purely kid's entertainers, and have now become a regular choice for adult audiences.
It certainly is an amazing experience to watch a professional magician perform up close, and no matter how frantically you try, not be able to figure out the secret of those magic tricks.
You may want your magician to perform a cabaret type show, or maybe you'd prefer more informal magic as they mingle up close with your guests; in any case, they are going to have fun and be enthralled. The hardest part is deciding on the best magician for your function in Brighton.
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN BRIGHTON
The first thing you should do is look at which people are coming to your party or event. Think about the kind of function you are holding and the age brackets of the people who'll be present. Having a solid idea of what your guests are expecting will help you to ask the right questions of a potential magician.
It's quite easy, if you do not do your research in understanding precisely what you need, to hire the wrong magician for your type of event. By doing this elementary research and knowing precisely what you need, you reduce the risk of hiring an inappropriate choice of magician. Wedding parties are generally a mixture of age groups, and a magician who's more used to events like stag parties or hen parties is probably not the best choice. Alternatively, a children's magician at a wedding reception may be a bit embarrassing for both the happy couple, and the magician.
Informal parties are good for performing close-up magic to small groups, and sleight of hand magicians and pickpockets performing street magic always go down a storm. If your function calls for something more formal, or is presented to set times, consider hiring a corporate, stage or cabaret magician to amaze the entire audience.
Popular with guests of all age groups, and always keeps folks guessing are mind readers and mentalists. Mind reading is a well loved classic, but a modern twist sees audience members reading the magician's mind and changes it into something new entirely.
EXPERIENCE & PERSONALITY
In magic, confidence is key. With experience comes confidence, and a seasoned Brighton magician can quickly adapt to ever changing situations amongst your guests. There are times when magic tricks don't work, and where a rookie magician might struggle, a seasoned professional will flourish.

You want a magician who can have a discussion with anyone at your event on their level, or as near to it as possible. A magician should put your guests at ease and engage with them as he performs.
Although the ins and outs of some tricks can be guessed, a professional magician should not ever disclose the real secrets behind their magic. They should also not count on heavily scripted material, as working with live audiences can throw up surprises at every turn. A magician shouldn't just turn up to your party in Brighton, knock out a few basic tricks and walk away, they must perform, interact and make sure that they give all your guests a real "OMG" moment.
