Magicians have become one of the most popular entertainment choices for wedding receptions, birthdays, dinner parties and corporate events in recent times. They are still extremely popular for kids parties, but thanks to television shows such as, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are sought after by more mature audiences.
It certainly is a unique experience to see a skilled magician work close up, and regardless how hard you try, not be able to work out the secret of those magic tricks.
A quality magician will have everybody mesmerised as they perform impromptu magic while mingling with the guests, or put on a more professional cabaret style stage show. The toughest part is deciding on the right magician for your event in Middlesbrough.
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN MIDDLESBROUGH
Before doing anything else, study the list of people attending your event. Is it a wedding reception, kid's party, corporate event or other celebration that you want a magician for? Having a sense of what your guests are expecting will help you ask the right questions of any potential magician.
Because every event is different, you will need to understand exactly what you expect from your magician, so that you don't make a mistake and hire the wrong style. To simply book in a magician without doing this research may be a huge mistake. An adult entertainer may have magic that is more appropriate for a hen or stag party than to a more formal corporate event, or a party where young children are in attendance. It's also clear that a kid's magic act probably won't be appropriate for more mature audiences.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Close-up table magic is always a very popular choice for informal occasions and parties, but you can also pick from pick-pockets, street magicians and sleight of hand magicians. If your event calls for something more formal, or needs to be performed within set times, consider hiring a cabaret, stage or corporate magician to amaze your whole audience.
Great fun for guests of all ages are mind readers and mentalists, who are able to keep the entire audience second guessing for long after the show. Mind reading is a well loved classic, but a modern twist has audience members reading the magician's mind and transforms it into something altogether new.
EXPERIENCE AND PERSONALITY
Confidence and experience are the key weapons in a magician's armoury. A magician in Middlesbrough with plenty of experience will be able to change their act to suit different situations, in a professional and seamless manner. If something goes awry during a trick, as quite often occurs, a seasoned magician will turn it around and make it part of the show, whereby someone just starting out in the business could be flustered by the failure. This is where many years of experience working with audiences comes to the forefront.
With experience also comes the knowledge of successfully working the audience. When a magician in Middlesbrough finds this hard to achieve, it can turn into an uncomfortable experience for everyone. A talented magician should be capable of interacting with every guest, irrespective of background or age. What turns a reasonable magician into a great one, is the ability to make all your guests feel comfortable, especially if they've volunteered for a magic trick.
While the processes of some magic tricks can be guessed at, a skilled magician should never reveal their secrets. They cannot depend on scripting, unless it's a cabaret act, and even then it should be readily adaptable should the necessity arise. A magician should never just show up to your party in Middlesbrough, knock out a few simple tricks and vanish, they need to interact, perform and ensure that they give your audience a real "OMG" moment.
FINDING A GOOD MAGICIAN IN MIDDLESBROUGH
There are lots of adverts and webpages for party magicians and entertainers in and around Middlesbrough. You'll be able to pick from individual performers or go through a larger entertainment agency to try to find the best value for money. Recommendations and advice from relatives or friends is always a good way to track down a decent magician in Middlesbrough. Remember the kind of event that they held, and if this is comparable to yours in the ages and expectations of the partygoers.
Make an initial enquiry with at least three local magicians or agencies in Middlesbrough and ask for quotations. You'll be looking for the following answers from each of them:
Experience - For how long have they been a professional magician, and roughly how many shows or events have they attended?
Style - Do they perform close-up magic with small groups and individual guests in a relaxed way, or do they put on a cabaret show to entertain the entire audience.
Suitability - Do they see themselves as kids entertainers, or are they appropriate for older, more mature audiences.
Performance - How long is the show, if it's a cabaret style magician, or if they are an up-close magician who interacts with your guests, what time do they start and conclude?
Choosing the most suitable magician from the answers that they provide may mean that you do not choose the lowest priced magician in Middlesbrough; but you'll have made the best choice. You will be positive at this stage that your chosen magician will be fully prepared to liven up your event and provide an unforgettable and unique experience for everyone.
