My advice for Hiring the Right UK Magician for your event!
December 6, 2012 | By Keelan Leyser |
Are you considering hiring a UK magician? Every event needs entertainment right? For many people the traditional band is out of the window because they really want to make their event stand out. Instead, many people are choosing to hire a magician for their event. Magicians provide something different and choosing the right magician is sure to keep everybody gripped. How do you go about choosing the right magician however? Let me explain.
The first thing to bear in mind is that there are a lot of people out there who call themselves magicians. Truth be told, they may have the tricks but they certainly do not have the ability to entertain. A successful entertainer has the ability to grip the audience with every word that they say and they have the ability to plan a show that is absolutely perfect for the event. Very few proper magicians exist and you may have difficulty finding one. The best tip I can offer you here is to rely on recommendations, whether this comes from a friend or perhaps browsing one of the many review websites online. If a magician is good, then there will be a number of stunning recommendations for them.
You will need to consider whether the magician that you select is right for your event. For example, a magician you choose for a children’s party would be completely different to one for a wedding. They will both have different target audiences for a start. Generally your magician’s profile page should give you a bit of information about what sort of entertainment they can cater for, you are unlikely to find a magician that caters for both as they do require completely different skills.
You will also need to look into the sort of magic that the magician practices. For example, if you are booking a magician for a wedding then you will most likely wish to opt for close up magicians. As you can probably tell from the name, these magicians specialise in magic where they can interact with the audience. They require very few props and space which of course helps keep the cost of the event down. If you are into something a bit bigger then you may wish to inquire about an illusionist but for most events (apart from the largest) this may be a bit overkill.
When you are looking into booking a UK magician I suggest that you get talking to them before you hire them. In order for your event to run smoothly you need to ‘connect’ with the magician. Talk to them and discuss the methods that they use and try to get a general idea of their act. Basically, you will want to find out as much information as possible beforehand to ensure that you have the right magician for your event.
If you follow these tips above you will find that finding the right UK magician for your event is a breeze. Honestly, find the right magician and not only will you have found the perfect entertainment for your guests, but you will end up with an entertainer that you can rely on time and time again.
