This works best in side room of a hotel or in your house where there is a set number of guests watching the show. 10-25 is a good number of guests for this and the magic show usually lasts between 45 minutes to 1 hour. If you are arranging an event and would like to have a magic show and wish to sell tickets, i.e for a charity event or fundraiser, Roger will perform his show and has a lot of experience in this area.

For a personalised quote simply call or email Roger let him know how many guests you are expecting at your event and I will give you specific price for your event. It all depends on what day your event is. Is it an afternoon or evening performance. Magician for Hire Prices As a rough guide £250 for the 1st hour then £150 for every consecutive hour. Allow 1 hour per 50 guests. London Magician Packages Straight performance for 1-3 hours mix and mingle magic Roger will move around your party from room to room entertaining groups of guests with a short 5-10 minute performances. For this performance you don’t have to worry about a thing Roger will arrive and just start performing, he does not require any room and can operate from his pockets. The Magic Room This performance requires the use of a room where there is nothing else going on and the door can be shut. This room will be called the magic room and your guests will be given a ticket with a time on it to enter the magic room. Roger will then perform a short routine to the small group of guests 4-8 guests are the perfect number. They will enjoy a private performance out of the way of the noise of the party. Once the performance is over they will be sworn to secrecy to not reveal what happens in the magic room. This will provide an air of mystery and guests will not know what to expect. Typically at a private party your guests will see Roger moving between groups of people and will see some of the tricks being performed, this way nobody knows what to expect. The magic room can be added onto the end of a straight performance if required and a separate performance would occur in the room as to what is happening in the main party. This could either be some kind of psychological magic or a gambling routine depending on your guests. Cabaret Magic The final option is a cabaret performance, this would require an area where Roger can setup or a stage depending on the party venue. The performance would usually be 45 minutes and would require everyone to watch. This works well for some parties depending on guest numbers. If your party involves a meal and you are looking for some after dinner entertainment then this could be the perfect option. Again this could be combined with a straight performance of table magic or close up magic and or the magic room. All of this can be discussed with Roger to find the perfect performance for your private party in London find the perfect performance for your private party in London. So if you are looking for corporate entertainment ideas London has a lot to offer and we would recommend a Magician!

Private Party Magician in London

Roger has performed at hundreds of house parties across greater London and will certainly add to your party. He can either mingle with your guests moving between rooms and round the garden, or very popular now is the “Magic Room!” If you have a spare room that you could use, Roger can setup a private intimate show for smaller groups of people, they can come in at various times during the night and it means that the magic they experience is not the high energy noisy magic that would be seen in the normal party environment, but a very much more sophisticated and intimate performance. Hiring a professional Magician for your party ensures your guests get to see the very best in Magical Entertainment.
