Frequently asked questions
This all depends on a few factors, mainly how many guests are you expecting, what day of the week is your event (a Saturday is more expensive than a Tuesday) and where the event is. Let’s assume you are looking for evening entertainment for your 50th birthday party and you have 80 guests – typical price would be £350-£450
For a personalised quote for your event please get in touch.
I have been a professional Magician for over 20 years and have been performing magic all my life. With over 1000 professional performances under my belt I can assure you of guaranteed entertainment for whatever event you are planning. I have seen them all and can also advise on other entertainment options if you want to add to your party. I am a member of the world famous Magic Circle, also Equity and am covered with Public liability insurance up to £10,000,000. This is a requirement for most venues.
Whilst a lot of people think that the price for anything for a wedding is more expensive than normal this is not the case for me, if you are hiring me for a party a corporate event or for your wedding entertainment, my price is the same. As above a typical Magician booking for 2 hours is between £350-£450 depending on location.
If you are hiring a Magician for any event you need to ask them if they are in the Magic Circle and if not why not? Being a member of the Magic Circle is a mark that you have attained a certain level of performance which has been validated by other members. This should give you some assurance that the Magician you are hiring has a reasonable level of performance ability. For more information check out my page – How to join the Magic Circle
Basically you need two members to recommend you, there is an interview to assess your magic knowledge and then a 15 minute audition where you have to perform at the Magic Circle in London in front of an audience of up to 50 people, most members of that audience will be professional magicians and amongst them will be three judges who will be marking you on performance, ability and general presentation. You are not being marked on unique magic tricks and you don’t have to invent something that nobody has seen before, just pick a few tricks and perform them well and you will be fine.
I don’t know the exact figure but I believe if you were to hire Dynamo for an event expect to pay the price of a large car!
If you are looking to hire a Magician for your wedding, party entertainment or corporate event then the process is quite simple.
First step is to find your magician, most people will ask friends or family for a recommendation if they have hired a magician before. If you can’t get a recommendation the next step is people will jump onto Google and search for Magicians near me or Hampshire Magician, you will then be faced with a wall of Magicians! Have a look at a few websites and if they have a show reel watch the video and see if you like them and decide if they would be a good fit for your party and your guests. Contact the Magician and see if they are available for your date, even better give them a ring, you will get a much better idea of the person by speaking with them. Then finally if you want to go ahead and book you will have to pay a deposit to hold your date. As you are reading this on my website you could just avoid all that and just hire me Roger Lapin! – Contact me to check availability for your event.

We booked Roger for my husbands 40th birthday surprise at a lodge in the New Forest. We all absolutely loved his show, especially the kids, as Roger really got them involved in the magic tricks, would certainly recommend to give your party something extra special.
Roger was superb. He pitched his performance perfectly. Everyone was literally blown away by the level of magical craftsmanship. Top class, subtle , extremely clever. I can’t imagine a party without him there now to bring that extra sparkle and awe inspiring magic. Thank you Roger you were amazing. Becky from Hampshire x
Roger entertained our guests at my husband’s birthday party just recently. He was a great addition to the party. Everyone loved his magic delivered in a humorous and relaxed manner. Thank you Roger, you made all the difference to our celebrations!!
Roger came along to perform at our evening wedding reception at very short notice and totally blew us all away. Everyone loved his relaxed approach as he mingled around the guest tables (due to covid restrictions all guests had to remain seated) and left both children and Adults totally captivated. A very friendly chap who we would all recommend as the perfect addition to entertain at any function.
Thanks Roger for being the icing on the cake on our special day. From Martin & Gemma Reynolds
Roger, We just wanted to say thanks a million for the incredible job you did for us at Paul’s 50th at The Pig near Bath. We were blown away by your crazy magic skills – you completely flabbergasted a lot of really clever people! You’ll be a talking point for a long time. We loved the comedy element thrown into the mix too- you really are super talented.
Hope to have a reason to call on you again sometime!
