Having a magician perform in front of you at your table with close up magic is a great experience, and one that will surely leave you curious about the secrets behind the tricks.

A talented magician will have everybody mesmerised as they perform impromptu magic while mingling with the guests, or put on a more professional cabaret stage show. But what type of magician should you hire?


Before you do anything, take a look at the list of people coming to your party. Is it a wedding reception, corporate event, kid's party or other celebration that you need a magician for? Knowing yours, and your guests, expectations from the event should allow you to pick the most suitable magician.

It can be easy, if you fail to do your research in knowing what you require, to hire the wrong magician for your type of event. By doing your research and knowing exactly what you need, you lessen the risk of booking an inappropriate choice of magician. If your event is a combination of adults and children, or a formal corporate occasion, you won't want to hire a risqué magician who would work well at a hen party of stag party. Alternatively, a kids magician at a wedding party could be a little embarrassing for the magician, and the happy couple.

Close-up magic is always an extremely popular choice for informal occasions and parties, but you also have the option of street magicians, sleight of hand magicians and pick-pockets. For those more formal functions you should consider an after dinner cabaret, corporate or stage magician.

Very exciting for guests of all ages are mind readers and mentalists, who are able to keep the whole audience second guessing long after the show has finished. Some skillful magicians can even switch this trick round and get a member of the audience to read their mind - the ultimate twist to a classic magic trick.


Confidence is key when it comes to magic. Selby magicians with many years of experience behind them will be much more likely to adapt and change with an audience's different personalities than a magician who is just setting out in the profession. If something goes wrong during a trick, as quite often occurs, an experienced magician will turn it to his advantage and turn it into a part of the show, whereas someone just setting out in the profession could become flustered over the mistake. Gaining the confidence and experience to achieve this cannot be learnt overnight.

A skilled magician will also have the experience of working the audience to get the right responses. If a magician cannot accomplish this it's probable you'll wind up with a cringey experience that is embarrassing.

What turns a decent magician into a fantastic one, is the ability to put all your guests at ease, particularly if they have volunteered to be a part of a trick.

They cannot rely on a script, unless it is a set cabaret act, and even then it ought to be ready for adaptation should the need arise. You will want to book a performer who interacts with the guests and gives your event a true OMG moment, not just someone who walks in, does a few basic tricks and leaves.
