Magicians have become the subject of a surge in popularity over the last few years, and are ideal entertainment for corporate events, dinner parties, wedding receptions and birthdays in Lichfield. They are still the first choice for kid's parties, but thanks to TV programs like, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are sought after by audiences of a more mature nature.
Having a magician perform close-up magic at your table is an amazing experience, and one that will definitely leave you pondering over the mystical secrets behind the tricks.
You may want your magician to put on a cabaret type show, or perhaps you'd prefer more informal magic as they mingle with guests; in either case, they will be entertained and mesmerised. The most challenging part is deciding on a suitable magician for your function in Lichfield.
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN LICHFIELD
Before doing anything else, take a look at the list of people who are attending your party. Consider the sort of event you're holding and the ages of people who'll be present. Choosing the best magician, and asking them the appropriate questions should be much easier when you've got some idea of what you need from them.
Because every function is different, you will need to know what you expect from the magician, so that you don't get it wrong in hiring the wrong type. You could make a huge mistake by booking a magician if you do not do this research. An adult entertainer may have magic tricks that are more suitable to a stag party or hen party than to a corporate event, or a function where kids are present. Alternatively, a children's magician at a wedding event could be somewhat embarrassing for both the magician, and the happy couple.
Close-up magic tricks are always a popular choice for parties and informal occasions, but you can also select from street magicians, pick-pockets and sleight of hand experts. For those more formal events you may prefer a corporate, stage, or after dinner cabaret magician.
Popular to people of any age, and sure to keep everybody guessing are mentalists and mind readers. This time honoured magic trick can be transformed when the magician twists it around and gets the audience to read their mind.
PERSONALITY AND EXPERIENCE
In magic, as with many other things, confidence is king. An experienced Lichfield magician should be able to adapt their act to different personalities, in a professional and seamless manner. At times magic tricks go wrong, and you need an individual who can turn these mistakes into a part of the act and not dry up. That's where the years of experience of working with audiences comes in handy.
With experience also comes the knowledge required to work the audience. What you don't want at your party or event in Lichfield is a performer who causes insult or embarrassment, with comments that are unsuitable for your guests. A talented magician should be capable of interacting with all the guests, regardless of age or background. A magician should engage with your guests and put them at ease as he performs.
There will always be folks who wish to know how particular tricks are executed; a good magician shouldn't ever use tricks that are easy to figure out, or expose their innermost secrets. They should also not depend on rigidly scripted material, because working with live audiences can throw up unexpected surprises at every turn of the cards. An authentic magician should be a real performer at your event in Lichfield, who provides guests with a memorable "OMG" moment, not somebody who wistfully strolls around doing the odd magic trick every so often before leaving with his wages.
FINDING AN EXCELLENT LICHFIELD MAGICIAN
There are plenty of adverts and webpages for magicians and entertainers in and around Lichfield, Staffordshire. You'll be able to select from individuals or go through a larger entertainment agency to try to find the best value for money. If you've got friends or family who've hired a magician in the past it is an excellent idea to ask for their advice and recommendations. When given recommendations, don't forget to check the age brackets and kind of event that the magician attended in order to compare it to your function.
Get quotations from at least three magicians or management companies in Lichfield when you're making your preliminary enquiries. You will want to ask about:
Experience - Have they performed at many events/parties, and for how long have they been a magician.
Performance - If a stage magician, do they put on a one off performance, or will they also mingle afterwards and perform more magical experiences for your guests.
Style - Do they perform close-up magic for individual guests and small groups in a casual and informal way, or do they put on a cabaret style show to entertain a crowd.
Suitability - Do not make the error of booking a kids magic act for an all adult event.
Don't automatically pick out the lowest quotation, consider how each one will work within your planning and choose accordingly. You will now be able to relax, with everything organised entertainment wise, and enjoy the magical experience on the big day.
