Over the last couple of decades, magicians have become an increasingly popular choice for the entertainment at birthdays, corporate events, dinner parties and wedding receptions in Oldbury. They are still very popular for kid's parties, but because of television shows such as, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are an automatic choice for audiences of a more mature nature.
There's something extra special about seeing a skilled magician in the flesh, especially when you simply cannot work out how they did it.
You might want your magician to perform a cabaret type show, or maybe you would prefer more informal magic as they mingle with guests; in any case, they'll have fun and be mesmerised. But what type of magician will you need?
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN OLDBURY
The first thing you need to do is consider the people who are attending your event or party. Needless to say a kid's party will require a different type of magician than a dinner party. Knowing yours, and your guests, expectations from the event should allow you to pick out the right magician.
It can be easy, if you fail to do your research in knowing exactly what you require, to hire the wrong style of magician for your event. To just book in any style of magician without undertaking this research may be a huge mistake. Wedding events are generally a wide mix of age groups, and a magician who regularly does events like stag or hen parties might not be the ideal choice. At the other end of the scale, a magician who normally performs at kids parties may not have the finesse for a formal corporate event or wedding function, causing embarrassment all round.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Informal occasions and parties are ideal for close-up magic, street magicians and sleight of hand experts who will intermingle with guests while they perform. For those more formal functions you should consider a stage, corporate, or after dinner cabaret magician.
Exciting for all ages are mind readers and mentalists, who are able to keep the entire audience guessing long after the show is over. Mind reading is a timeless classic, however a modern twist sees the audience reading the magician's mind and changes it into something new entirely.
PERSONALITY AND EXPERIENCE
In magic, confidence is key. With experience comes confidence, and a seasoned Oldbury magician can adapt quickly to ever changing situations amongst your guests. Sometimes magic tricks don't work, and you need an individual who can transform such mishaps into part of the act and not dry up. Having the experience and confidence to accomplish this cannot be learnt overnight.
A talented magician will also know how to work the crowd successfully. What you don't need at your function in Oldbury is a magician who causes embarrassment, with comments that do not suit your guests. You want a magician who can speak to anybody at your function on their level, or at least close to it. A magician should be able to put your guests at ease and engage with them as he performs.
There'll always be folks who want to know exactly how specific tricks are done; a professional magician shouldn't ever reveal their secrets, or use magic tricks which are simple to deduce. They can't make use of scripting, unless it's a cabaret act, and even then it needs to be readily adapted should the necessity arise. You will want to hire a performer who interacts with your guests and gives your event a real OMG moment, not somebody who strolls in, does a few basic tricks, pockets the fee and leaves.
FINDING A QUALITY OLDBURY MAGICIAN
There are plenty of adverts and webpages for party magicians and entertainers in the Oldbury area. Obtaining a magician for your budget may be somewhat easier through an entertainment agency. If you've got relatives or friends who have hired a magician in the past it is an excellent idea to ask for their advice. When given advice, remember to enquire about the age ranges and style of party that the magician attended so that you can compare it to your own function.
Make an initial enquiry with at least three management companies or magicians in Oldbury and ask for price quotes. You will need to enquire about:
Suitability - Tell them the kind of gathering you are staging, i.e. wedding party, corporate event, kids birthday etc, and ask if they can perform for that demographic.
Once you have your replies, and of course, the quotes - you can pick out your event's magician. You should be confident at this stage that your chosen magician will be fully prepared to kick start your event and create a unique and memorable experience for everyone concerned.
QUALIFICATIONS & AFFILIATIONS
There are no formal qualifications in the magician world, and training is either self-taught, or done in secrecy. Magic clubs around the UK will welcome magicians of all ages to share tricks, hints and tips, but the most prestigious club of them all is the illustrious Magic Circle.
Any Oldbury magician who can display Magic Circle membership has proven themselves, their skill and their ability to the world's foremost magicians. There's no automatic membership to the Magic Circle and applicants have to be endorsed by two current members before being invited to take part in an interview and, if this is successful, proceed to demonstrate their magic.
If they pass these stages the last judgment on whether they can become a member is made by the ruling Magic Circle Council. Only when these steps have been taken can the successful magician enter into the famous halls of magic and have pride in knowing that they are at the apex of their profession.
