There's something extra special about seeing a professional magician up close, particularly when you simply cannot figure out how they did it.

From performing impromptu magic while mingling with guests, to a full-blown stage show; a quality magician will have everybody at your party looking on amazed. But what type of magician will you need?


Before you make contact with a magician or entertainment company you should first of all take a close look at your event guest list. Is it a kids party, wedding reception, corporate event or other celebration for which you want a magician? Having a perception of the expectations of your guests will help you ask the right questions of a potential magician.

Because every function is different, you'll need to know just what you expect from your magician, so that you don't get it wrong and hire the wrong style. To simply book in any style of magician without doing this elementary research may be a huge mistake. Wedding events usually involve a wide mix of age groups, and a magician who's more used to events like hen parties or stag parties is probably not the best choice. On the other hand, a children's magician at a wedding function may be a bit embarrassing for both the magician, and the happy couple.

Close-up magic is always an extremely popular choice for informal occasions and parties, but you can also choose from pick-pockets, sleight of hand magicians and street magicians. If your function calls for something more formal, or needs to be performed within a set time frame, look into hiring a cabaret, corporate or stage magician to wow your whole audience.

Popular with guests of all age groups, and sure to keep the audience guessing are mentalists and mind readers. Mind reading is a well loved classic, however a contemporary twist has audience members reading the magician's mind and turns it into something totally new.


Confidence and experience are the vital weapons in a magician's armoury. Confidence comes from practical experience, and a seasoned Pontefract magician can adapt quickly to changing situations among your guests. If things goes wrong during a trick, as quite often occurs, an experienced magician will turn it around and make it part of the show, whereas a person just starting up in the profession might become flustered over the mistake. This is a part of the skills an experienced and professional magician has to offer as they perform.

An authentic magician will be a real performer at your party in Pontefract, who provides guests with an unforgettable OMG moment, not somebody who simply strolls around doing a magic trick every so often before pocketing the fee and leaving.
