Things to Consider When Hiring a Magician in London and the UK

| May 12, 2010 | 0 Comments

Hiring a magician for your wedding, party or corporate event is a fantastic way of breaking the ice with your guests and have them laughing and chatting in no time. However, there are several things you need to consider when hiring a magician in the UK. I’ll take you through the options and some things to look for to make sure you get the best of the best.

The most important factor to consider when booking a magician in London is to see what previous customers have said about them. If they don’t have testimonials or feedback from clients on display, it’s best not to go any further. The good performers will have a number of satisfied customers who have allowed them to use their letters/e-mails of thanks as proof.

This type of social proof means that you can be sure that the performer is good and has performed at your type of event before.

You may also want to check to see that the performer has performance photos clearly displayed on their site. This enables you to see some of the reactions their performances elicit. The more happy smiling faces you see, the better. If they have video of them performing, even better.

There are a few organisations in the UK that act as a ‘seal of approval’ for magicians. The most well-known and highly respected society is The Magic Circle. Members of ‘The Circle’ have had to pass an audition to become members, where they are ‘vetted’ by a group of their peers. Again, membership of The Magic Circle is another good sign when looking for a London magician.

Another organisation is Equity, the performers’ union. Membership of this union gives the performer up to £10 million of public liability insurance. When hiring a stage magician, this is particularly important, as in the very unlikely event of a problem you are covered.
