In recent times, magicians have become one of the most popular choices for doing the entertainment at wedding receptions, dinner parties, birthdays and corporate events in Ely. There has been a big shift from them being viewed as purely kid's entertainers, and have now become a regular choice for more mature adult audiences.
It's a unique experience to see a talented magician work up close, and regardless how hard you try, not be able to work out the secrets to the magic.
A quality magician will have everybody enthralled as they perform impromptu magic while mingling with your guests, or put on a more formal cabaret stage show. However, what type of magician will you need?
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN ELY
Before doing anything, take a close look at the list of guests who are coming to your event. Consider the kind of function you're holding and the age brackets of guests who will be present. Picking the right magician, and asking them the appropriate questions should be far easier when you've got some idea of what you are expecting from them.
Since every event is different, you will need to appreciate just what you want from the magician, so that you don't get it wrong in hiring the wrong type. You could be mistaken by booking a magician without doing this research. If your event is a formal corporate function or a combination of adults and children, you won't want to hire a risqué magician who would go down well at a hen or stag party. On the flip side of the coin, a magician who normally performs at kids birthday parties will probably not have the required level of finesse for a more formal corporate event or wedding function, causing embarrassment for everyone.
Informal events allow close up magic to be demonstrated to small groups, and pickpockets and sleight of hand magicians performing various kinds of "street" magic normally go down well. If your function calls for something more formal, or is presented to set times, look into hiring a cabaret, corporate or stage magician to wow the whole audience.
Popular for guests of all age groups, and always keeps folks guessing are mentalists and mind readers. Some masters of magic can even flip this round and get members of the audience to read their mind - the supreme twist to a classic magic trick.
EXPERIENCE AND PERSONALITY
In magic, as with many other things, confidence is key. A seasoned Ely magician will be able to adapt their act to suit different personalities, in a seamless and professional manner. Sometimes magic tricks go awry, and you need an individual who can transform these mistakes into a part of the act and not dry up. Gaining the experience and confidence to accomplish this cannot be learnt overnight.
Working the crowd and making sure all the guests are included is also a skill that is gained from many years of experience. What you don't want at your event in Ely is a magic act that causes embarrassment or insult, with comments that are not suitable for your guests. The ability to communicate with audiences of all ages is a base requirement for any skilled magician in Ely. They should be able to engage with all of your guests and put them at ease during the show.
Also, it is a sign of a skilled magician not to reveal his or her secrets, or perform magic tricks that are obvious or easy to deduce. They can't make use of a script, unless it is a set cabaret style act, and even then it should be ready for adaptation should the need arise. An authentic magician will be a performer at your occasion in Ely, who provides your guests with an unforgettable OMG moment, not somebody who merely strolls around the room doing the odd magic trick before pocketing the fee and departing.

QUALIFICATIONS & AFFILIATIONS
With no official qualifications or career advancement, magicians learn their craft in total secrecy, or in most cases are self-taught. Magic clubs all around the UK welcome magicians of any age to share hints, tricks and tips, but the most renowned club of all is the celebrated Magic Circle.
Only the world's top magicians and entertainers can become part of the most sought after membership in the field. The Magic Circle is incredibly demanding when it comes to its membership, and any prospective magician has to be put forward by two current members, attend an interview and then do a demonstration of their magic expertise.
If they pass these two stages the final say on whether they can become members is made by the Magic Circle Council. These stages must all be passed before any magician can call themselves a member of The Magic Circle.
KIDS MAGICIANS ELY
A note on magicians for children's parties; a professional children's magician won't be offended if you enquire about background checks and references. Any individual who advertises the fact that they work with kids should be checked as a part of industry standards, and kids magicians are no different.
Entertainment and energy are the foundation of a kid's magician's skillset, and they must be able to keep kids of all ages mesmerised during their show. Certain magicians may stress the age brackets that their act is more suited to and it is important that you inform them of the ages of the youngsters at your particular event. A children's magician should also be an entertainer who must be able to change and adapt quickly to keep the kids interested and amazed throughout the whole show.
