5 things to know about hiring a magician for your event

Whether your Hertfordshire event is a corporate event, a team-building day, a family party or wedding, the chances are there will be many people of widely differing backgrounds, tastes and ages.

When you are entertaining a large group of people, particularly where many guests will not know each other, it can be difficult to find entertainment that truly brings people together. In my experience, magic is a superb way of bringing people together over a shared experience, especially something like close-up magic.

You can watch some incredible magical illusions on the TV but, according to Dynamo in an article for the Standard, television magic is ‘dead’ because people are too cynical and need to see the illusions for themselves. Seeing close-up magic, which includes sleight-of-hand magic, contemporary magic, mind-reading, pickpocketing or ice magic is mesmerising, and always leaves people wondering how it was done.

Here are 5 things you may not know about hiring a magician for your Hertfordshire event:

1. Hertfordshire magicians are perfect for bringing people together

All events have one thing in common – the need to break the ice quickly and get people talking so that everyone has a great and memorable time. People tend to stick with people they know, which means if there’s not something that attracts their attention and keeps the momentum going, the energy in the room can fall flat very quickly.

2. Magicians are instant focal points of any event

Magic is one of the quickest ways to get people talking. Within minutes a magician will capture people’s attention. It has a universal appeal that connects everyone because, even if magic is not their thing, seeing it performed close up provokes their natural curiosity, and people can’t help wanting to know how it is done.

3. The magician’s routine can be 100% tailored to your event

A good magician will have a huge range of tricks so they can create a fantastic routine tailored around your taste. By finding out what type of magic you want, they will create a magic routine that will appeal to you and your guests.

4. The magician can work with the Hertfordshire venue to ensure your event runs seamlessly

An experienced magician is much more likely to have built up close working relationships with your Hertfordshire venue. This means that, as well as performing magic brilliantly, they will work with the venue to ensure your event runs perfectly allowing you to enjoy your event as well.

5. Feel-good feelings for everyone to take home

You want your guests to leave having had a great time and feeling they have been thoroughly entertained. A fabulous magician will have them talking about your event for a long time after, so check their testimonials to see what people have to say. The sort of comments you’re looking for are  ‘stunning’, ‘mind-blowing’ and ‘sheer brilliance’ because then you’ll know you’re in good hands.
