Magicians have seen a huge increase in popularity over the last couple of decades, and are ideal entertainment for weddings, birthdays, corporate events and dinner parties in Todmorden. They are also still the top choice for children's parties, although there has been a huge shift in their popularity for putting on a show at more adult events.
Having a magician perform in front of you at your table with close up magic is a terrific experience, and one which will surely leave you wondering the mystical secrets behind the tricks.
From performing impromptu magic while mingling with your guests, to a conventional stage show; a good magician will have everyone at your event looking on amazed. However, what style of magician should you hire?
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIAN IN TODMORDEN
Before making contact with an entertainment company or magician you should first take a close look at your event guest list. Consider the sort of event you're holding and the age ranges of the people who'll be present. Having an understanding of what your guests are expecting will help you ask the right questions of any potential magician.
Because every function is different, you will need to know precisely what you want from your magician, so you don't get it wrong in hiring the wrong magic style. To simply book any style of magician without carrying out this research could be asking for trouble. If your party is a combination of children and adults, or a formal corporate function, you'll not want to hire a risqué magician who would go down a storm at a hen party of stag party. Alternatively, a kids magician at a wedding event might be a bit embarrassing for the happy couple, and the magician.
Close-up magic is always a popular choice for parties and informal occasions, but you can also choose from street magicians, pick-pockets and sleight of hand magicians. Corporate and formal events will need a timed show performed to the whole audience, and in this case look for corporate, cabaret or stage magicians.
Exciting for guests of all ages are mind readers and mentalists, who can keep an audience guessing long after the show has finished. Mind reading is a timeless classic, but a contemporary twist has audience members reading the magician's mind and turns it into something totally new.
EXPERIENCE AND PERSONALITY
Experience and confidence are the vital weapons in a magician's armoury. A magician in Todmorden with a lot of experience will be able to adapt their act to different personalities, in a professional and seamless fashion. At times magic tricks don't work, and you need somebody who can turn these mistakes into an integral part of the act and not freeze. This is a part of the skill an experienced and professional magician can offer as they perform.
Working the audience and ensuring all the guests are included is another skill that is gained from years of experience. If a magician can't do this it is likely you'll finish up with a cringey experience that is embarrassing. The capacity to communicate with audiences of any background or age is a base requirement for any talented magician in Todmorden. What turns a decent magician into an incredible one, is the skill to make your guests feel comfortable, especially if they've volunteered for a magic trick.
Also, it is a sign of a good magician not to disclose his or her secrets, or have magic tricks that are obvious to deduce. They should also not depend on rigidly scripted material, since entertaining a live audience can throw up unexpected surprises at every turn of the cards. A genuine magician should be a real performer at your event in Todmorden, who offers your guests with a memorable OMG moment, not someone who thoughtlessly walks around doing the odd magic trick every so often before departing with his wages.
