The traditional Jewish coming of age celebration the Bar Mitzvah can be quite a lavish affair. Normally celebrated when a boy reaches 13 years. It is the initiation into adulthood and is looked upon now as the equivalent of Western Christianity’s celebration of confirmation.
With as many guests as a wedding and many entertainment options to choose from, looking for bar mitzvah entertainment ideas can be quite a challenge.
Although not a common booking for me I have performed at a few Bar Mitzvahs and can honestly say that they are certainly a great celebration, I recently performed at a Bar Mitzvah in Bournemouth in Dorset where there were over 200 guests and a band, myself performing as a Magician and fireworks to finish.
So if you are looking for some great bar mitzvah entertainment ideas why not consider hiring a close up magician to be part of your celebrations.
Bar Mitzvah Entertainment
One of the most common forms of entertainment is a live band, if you are looking for a band that can perform Balkan and Jewish Simcha music then Klezmer band could be the choice for you.
Bar Mitzvah Party Ideas
You could also hire circus performers, chocolate fountains, firework displays, but I really think a Close up Magician is the perfect bar mitzvah entertainment.
When would a Close up Magician perform at our Bar Mitzvah?
Bar Mitzvahs can be very long celebrations that last over an entire weekend, if the main celebrations are going to be in an evening with a meal, then I would suggest that this is the best time to hire a Close up Magician. I can either perform before the meal whilst your guests are arriving or during the meal between courses, I would advise against booking me too late into the evening as once the band has started to play it can get very hard to hear and be heard. I can also be hired at any point during the day, but from experience the early part of the evening is usually best.
How much does a Close up Magician Cost for a Bar Mitzvah?
Prices start from £350 for 2 hours depending on the day of the week and the season, during the summer Saturdays get very busy for weddings and December is very busy for Christmas Parties.
