Choosing the right Magician

How much is a Magician?

So, how much does a magician cost for a birthday party? Do they charge more for certain events? A magician isn’t an everyday service so it can be hard to know what costs to expect.

There is no standard price and it can vary hugely depending on the skills, availability, and location of the magician in question.

Types of Magician

  • Sleight of hand - These sorts of magicians rely a lot on card tricks and the sort of magic tricks you would expect in a small party environment rather than on a big scale with a stage and lots of props.
  • Illusionists - Think of the sort of shows that leave you wondering “how did they do that?”. “Sawing” an assistant in half is an example of an illusion. They often have big stage setups.
  • Children’s Magician - Nothing too heavy. These are the sort of magicians that are fantastic for children’s parties, they tend to have a good rapport with children and plenty of fun and light-hearted tricks. The adults might work out the tricks, but most children will be spellbound.
  • Comedy Magician - Half stand-up comedian, half magician, these are a great choice for getting the guests at a party or wedding involved and having a laugh while being wowed!

How do I check the Magician’s credentials?

Magicians come from a variety of backgrounds, so it can be hard to check their credentials. However, there are a number of different performance guilds as well as prestigious membership clubs such as The Magic Circle. A true magic specialist will probably have a membership to these sorts of organisations so keep an eye out for those who advertise that they are part of a magician’s guild.

In the modern age, you can check a lot about the magician before you employ their services. For example, you can check if they have a YouTube page where you might even be able to watch their magic show and see them in action. Online reviews and testimonials are also a very good way to check that other customers vouch for their skills.

Brilliant entertainment, kept the kids entertained all the way through, they were mesmerised by the magic as well. Got everyone involved and engaged and all the patents loved it too. Some even hired him for there’s too. Very efficient and had good communication all through the booking process. Only entertainment that could accommodate my times and was overall brilliant. So many compliments all the way through. Loved by parents and kids, good proper party music as well. Just what I was looking for
