Magicians have experienced a huge surge in popularity in recent years, and have become the perfect entertainment choice for weddings, corporate events, birthdays and dinner parties in Skipton. They are still the first choice for children's parties, but due to television shows like, Britain's Got Talent, magicians are sought after by more mature audiences.
There's something special about seeing a skilled magician in the flesh, particularly when you can't work out how they did it.
You may want your magician to put on a cabaret type show, or perhaps you would prefer more informal magic while mingling with guests; in any case, they'll have fun and be enthralled. But what type of magician should you book?
CHOOSING THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN SKIPTON
Before you do anything, study the list of people who are attending your event. Think about the kind of function you are holding and the ages of the guests who'll be present. Having an inkling of what your guests are expecting should help you to ask the right questions of any potential magician.
The difference between a corporate event and that of a fun party can be hugely different and you could hire the wrong kind of magician if you fail to research or recognise your precise requirements. To simply book a magician without carrying out this research could be asking for trouble. An adult entertainer may have magic tricks that are more suitable to a hen party of stag party than to a party where young children are present, or a more formal corporate event. It is also clear that a children's magic show quite possibly won't be appropriate for more mature, adult audiences.
STYLES OF MAGIC
Parties and informal occasions are ideal for street magicians, close-up magic and sleight of hand magicians who will mix with guests while they perform. If your function calls for something a bit more formal, or needs to be performed within a set time frame, look into hiring a stage, cabaret or corporate magician to amaze your entire audience.
Mind readers and mentalists are also great fun and are certain to leave an impact on all of your guests, not simply the chosen targets. Certain skillful magicians can even flip this around and get audience members to read their mind - the ultimate twist to a well loved magic trick.
EXPERIENCE AND PERSONALITY
Confidence is key when it comes to performing magic. Confidence comes from practical experience, and a seasoned Skipton magician can adapt quickly to ever changing situations among your guests. There are certainly times when tricks go wrong, and where a rookie magician might struggle, an experienced professional will turn it around to his or her advantage. Having the experience and confidence to achieve this cannot be learnt overnight.
With the benefit of experience also comes the knowledge of successfully working the crowd. When a magician in Skipton finds this difficult to achieve, it can easily become an awkward experience for everyone. A professional magician should be able to interact with everybody, regardless of age or background. They must have the ability to engage with all of your guests and put them at ease during the performance.
Although the ins and outs of some magic tricks can be guessed at, a magician should never reveal their secrets. They cannot rely on scripting, unless it's a cabaret style act, and even then it ought to be free flowing and ready for adaptation should the need arise. You will want a magician in Skipton who interacts with the guests and gives your event a genuine OMG moment, not somebody who strolls in, does a few tricks, pockets the fee and vanishes.
