Magician Harwich Essex (CO12): Whenever you're searching for something a little bit extra for your party or event in the Harwich area, and you want an enchanting evening that everybody will remember; you should hire a magician.
Over the last couple of decades, magicians have become an increasingly popular choice for the entertainment at birthdays, dinner parties, corporate events and wedding receptions in Harwich. They are also still the top choice for children's parties, but there has been a big shift in their popularity for more adult oriented events.
Having a talented magician at your table or perform in front of you with close up magic is a great experience, and one which will definitely leave you curious about the mysteries behind the tricks.
You might want your magician to perform a cabaret type show, or perhaps you'd rather have more informal magic as they mingle with guests; either way, they will have fun and be mesmerised. However, what type of magician should you hire?
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN HARWICH
Before you contact a magician or entertainment company you should first take a look at your event guest list. Think about the sort of function you're holding and the age ranges of the people who'll be present. Choosing the right magician, and asking them the right questions should be far easier when you've some idea of what you're expecting from them.
It can be easy, if you do not do your homework in understanding just what you need, to hire the wrong magician for your type of event. To just book a magician without doing this elementary research may be a big mistake. Wedding parties, for instance usually involve a mixture of ages, and a magician who's more used to events like hen or stag parties will probably not be the best choice. It's also clear that a kid's magic act may not be suitable for more mature audiences.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Informal occasions are good for demonstrating close-up magic to small groups, and pickpockets and sleight of hand magicians performing various kinds of "street" magic normally go down well. If your gathering calls for something a bit more formal, or needs to be performed within a set time frame, consider booking a corporate, cabaret or stage magician to wow the entire audience.
Mind readers and mentalists are also great fun and are certain to leave an impact on everybody, not simply the selected targets. This classic magic style can be changed completely when the magician twists it round and gets the audience to read their mind.
EXPERIENCE AND PERSONALITY
Experience and confidence are the ultimate weapons in a magician's toolkit. An experienced Harwich magician will be able to modify their act to different personalities, in a seamless and professional fashion. There are certainly times when tricks go awry, and where an inexperienced magician may struggle to recover, an experienced professional will flourish. That's where many years of experience working with audiences comes in handy.
A talented magician will also have experience in working the audience effectively. When a magician in Harwich finds this difficult to achieve, it can soon become a cringeworthy experience for everyone involved. You want a magician who can have a discussion with anybody at your function on their own level, or as close to it as possible. A magician should be able to put your guests at ease and engage with them as he (or she) performs.
It is also a sign of a good magician not to give away his (or her) secrets, or have tricks that are obvious or easy to deduce. A cabaret style magician in Harwich, unlike close-up and table magicians, can use a scripted performance, although even then they should be able to be versatile and make it flow freely to allow for any changes in the atmosphere. A magician should not just turn up to your event in Harwich, knock out a few simple tricks and vanish, they must interact, perform and ensure they give your audience a real "OMG" moment to remember.
