Close-up magic is always an extremely popular choice for informal occasions and parties, but you can also choose from sleight of hand experts, street style magicians and pick-pockets. If your gathering is in a more formal setting, or needs to be performed within set times, look into booking a stage, corporate or cabaret magician to impress the entire audience.

Mind readers and mentalists are also very entertaining and are certain to leave an impact on all of your guests, not simply the chosen targets. Some skillful magicians can even switch this trick round and get audience members to read their mind - the perfect twist to a classic magic trick.
