Magician Christchurch Dorset (BH23): Hiring a magician for your party or event in the Christchurch area, will guarantee to make it an unforgettable night for all your guests.
Magicians have become one of the most popular entertainment choices for wedding receptions, dinner parties, birthdays and corporate events in recent years. They're also still the top choice for kids parties, but there has been a huge shift in their popularity for putting on a show at more adult special events.
It certainly is an amazing experience to watch a talented magician work close up, and regardless how hard you try, not be able to figure out the secrets of those magic tricks.
From performing impromptu magic while mingling with your guests, to a conventional stage show; a decent magician will have everybody at your event looking on mesmerised. So, how do you choose what magician is best for your function in Christchurch?
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN CHRISTCHURCH
The first thing you should do is look at the people attending your event or party. Is it a corporate event, kid's party, wedding reception or other occasion that you need a magician for? Knowing yours, and your guests, expectations from the event should enable you to pick out the right magician.
Since every function is different, you will need to appreciate precisely what you expect from the magician, so you do not get it wrong and hire the wrong magic style. You could be mistaken by booking a magician if you do not do this elementary research. If your event is a mix of adults and children, or a formal corporate occasion, you will not want to book the sort of risqué magician who may work well at a stag or hen party. It's also the case that a kid's magic act will probably not be the best thing for more mature audiences.
Informal functions allow close up magic to be performed to small groups of guests, and pickpockets and sleight of hand magicians performing street magic generally go down well. For those more formal occasions you might prefer an after dinner cabaret, corporate or stage magician.
Popular to people of all ages, and sure to keep everybody guessing are mentalists and mind readers. Mind reading is a well loved classic, but a modern twist has members of the audience reading the magician's mind and transforms it into something altogether new.
PERSONALITY & EXPERIENCE
Confidence and experience are the key weapons in a magician's toolkit. Confidence comes from experience, and a seasoned Christchurch magician can adapt quickly to ever changing situations among your guests. If something goes awry during a trick, as sometimes occurs, a seasoned magician will turn it around and turn it into part of the show, whereas somebody just starting out in the business may be flustered by the mistake. This is all part of the skill an experienced and professional magician has to offer as they perform.
A talented magician will also have the experience of working the audience to get the right responses. If a magician can't do this it's probable that you will wind up with a cringeworthy experience that is embarrassing. You want a magician who can talk to anyone at your event on their own level, or at least close to it. A magician should engage with your guests and put them at ease as he (or she) performs.
Also, it is the mark of a skilled magician not to expose his secrets, or perform magic tricks that are far too obvious. They can't rely on scripting, unless it is a set cabaret act, and even then it must be ready for adaptation should the necessity arise. You'll want to book a performer who interacts and gives your event a genuine "OMG" moment, not somebody who walks in, knocks out a couple of tricks, pockets the fee and "vanishes".
FINDING A TOP NOTCH MAGICIAN IN CHRISTCHURCH
If you look online you'll find a good few magicians in the Christchurch area available for hire. Tracking down a magician to match your budget can be easier through an entertainment agency. If you have been to a friend's party where you saw a decent magician's act, ask for their contact details and how much they cost. When given recommendations, remember to enquire about the age brackets and type of gathering that the magician attended in order to compare it to your own function.
Make a preliminary enquiry with at least 3 magicians or management companies in Christchurch and ask for quotations. You are aiming to learn:
Suitability - Inform them about the form of function you are holding, i.e. hen/stag party, wedding party, kids birthday bash etc, and ask if they can perform for that demographic.
Experience - For how long have they been performing as a professional magician, and roughly how many events have they attended, or shows have they given?
Style - Will they mingle and interact with your guests, or will they perform in front of the?
Performance - For how long does the show last, whether it's a cabaret style magician, or whether they are a close-up magician who mixes and interacts with the audience, what time will they start and finish?
Picking the most suitable magician from the answers they provide may mean you may not opt for the cheapest magician in Christchurch; however you'll have made a good choice. You should be reassured at this point that your chosen magician will be fully prepared to kick start your event and provide a memorable and unique party experience for everybody.
AFFILIATIONS & QUALIFICATIONS
