Close Up Magicians

Magicians are experts at entertaining in a drinks reception, product launches, networking meetings, corporate dinners, award evenings, weddings, birthday parties and private events.

Performing for people in small groups, whether seated or standing our magicians will mingle with your guests engaging them in impossible feats that will leave even the most cynical with a sense of wonder.  

The main advantage of hiring a mix and mingle magician is that they can perform in any situation. No stage is needed, mirrors or assistants the magician will be up close and personal to your group of guests, causing unforgettable reactions.

Our Magicians combine sleight-of-hand, mentalism and small illusions to entertain your guests. The intimate nature of a close-up performance adds a powerful element to your event and allows the magician to perform miracles right in the hands of your guests.

Some of the tricks our Magicians perform include using cards, coins and objects.  Changing £10 notes into £20 or £50 notes, making people's rings appear in impossible locations, bending forks like never before seen, removing people's watches without their knowledge and performing award winning card tricks is just a sample of what Chosen Magicians will bring to your event.

SO WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME TO HIRE A MAGICIAN?

Drink Receptions - One of the best times to hire a magician is during the drinks reception. Magic entertainment will be performed among your guests as they arrive attracting their attention in small groups. Performing magic at a drinking reception is a deal breaker and is often helps create a buzz and make people talk.

Around Tables - Our magician goes around tables performing a brief magic show for your guests.

After Dinner - Our events magician will perform after the meal and speeches which can last a maximum of 30 minutes. It is advisable that we perform magic after dinner shortly before the dancing session starts.

Conversely, if you are hosting a small dinner, the magician can perform parlour style entertainment for one hour or less. This is a mixture of cabaret magic and table magic which goes down a storm.

FAQ

HOW MANY MAGICIANS WILL I NEED FOR MY EVENT?
The number of Magicians you needed will depend on how many guests you have at your event.  We recommend approximately 100 guests per Magician, this will give each Magician enough time to perform for everyone at the event - during the drinks and dinner. We also book out many teams of magicians for larger events.  The biggest booking we have taken on was for 15 magicians for 1,200 guests.

WHAT DOES THE CLOSE­- UP MAGICIANS WEAR WHEN PERFORMING?
Our Magicians will attend your event in smart attire.  However, if you have a specific request such as a black tie, tuxedo or even street gear, or you are having a themed event, please inform us at the time of enquiry.

DO YOUR MAGICIANS PERFORM AT CHILDREN’S BIRTHDAY PARTIES?
No, however, younger children have completely different needs when it comes to entertainment and you need to a specialised children’s entertainer (in the same way you wouldn’t book a kid’s entertainer to perform for your corporate clients). Please contact us for more details.

Just wanted to send you a note to say that Rick was just such a rock star on our stand this week at Black Hat Europe.  He is just such a super chap and totally wonderful to work with.  He just rocks up and gets on with things, we had some issues with our cabling and he sorted that out and then just keeps rolling all day.  He chats away with all the ‘customers’ and is a joy to work with.  All our team at Carbon Black, just love him.
