Entertainment Tips and Tricks

Large Event - Multiple Magicians?

Are you holding a large event with a lot of guests? Are you considering hiring a mind reader or hiring a magician?

If you are, you may not just want to hire one magician or mind reader for the event but multiple. This has a couple of advantages such as giving every person at the event the feeling of being individual catered for, and ensures everyone gets to see the entertainment before leaving.

A rough idea is for 100 guests, 2 hours of performing is about right. This obviously varies performer to performer event to event, but if you have 200 guests and only 2 hours for the entertainment then considering multiple magicians is probably wise.

Here are some tips if you are planning on booking multiple magicians.

  1. Make sure each magician knows the others are coming. This ensures no surprises for the performer who may believe he is headlining the bill.
  2. Giving the performers enough notice also allows the magicians to talk beforehand and ensure they won't be performing the same material. That way if they do happen to see both or all performers they will be watching something different.  
  3. Consider booking a mind reader and a magician. This way you give the guests a little more variety whilst still staying consistent in the approach.  
If you're thinking about booking multiple magicians then contacting Chris is a good way to go. As I spend a lot of my time networking with other magicians I know who the best performers in the field are from close-up magicians, memory artists, to balloon modellers. Just mention the idea when you enquire and save yourself some hassle.
