Devon Magician 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 want 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 Magician Devon, 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.
Wedding Magicians are becoming very popular now with couples looking to add something extra to their big day! A skilled wedding magician will entertain all your guests from young to old during the photographs, the wedding breakfast and also for the evening celebrations. If you are looking to add a bit more magic to your already special day a Magician is a great idea!
Close up Magic has become very popular at weddings with couples looking to add something extra to their big day. Having a Magician mingling with your guests during the photos or wedding breakfast creates a real buzz and is certainly a conversation starter for friends or family who have maybe never met before. I also perform a special trick for the couple which will create a unique object that will provide a lasting reminder of having a Magician at their wedding.
Most of the events I perform at are paid events where I have been hired to perform Magic, I am not expecting a tip, however sometimes when a group has really enjoyed the show, sometimes somebody will say “that was amazing” and give me a small tip, which is always appreciated, for me not as much for the monetary element, but for the fact that they enjoyed the performance so much they wanted to give me a tip!
This depends on the event, how many guests, day of the week etc, for a Magician working in the South East of England expect to pay from £250 – £500 for a 2 hour performance.
As soon as you have a date for your wedding, party or corporate event it’s best to book your Magician as soon as possible as most events tend to happen on a Saturday and Magicians get booked up very far in advance. It also depends if you just want any Magician or if you have seen someone that you really want for your wedding.
The best way of finding a local Magician is to either google or ask friends and family if they can recommend anyone
It’s the same as any other profession, it depends what you want. If you are just having a house party for 20 friends and want someone to come and do a few tricks, you will probably be happy with a local magician who is very good and not that expensive. However, if you are planning your wedding and expecting 150 friends and family, the magician you hire needs to be able to entertain to a high standard and deliver a professional performance to all your guests. This only comes with experience and you will probably pay a bit more, you might find a local wedding magician who is perfect, or you might have to spread your net a bit wider.
I always say to clients, if you want to hire someone to re-spray your car after a repair, do you want to pay your son who is quite handy with a paint brush, or do you hire a professional re-sprayer who has done this job 100’s of times before.?
Saying that, some of the best Close up Magicians I know are not what you would call professional and just do it for fun, but they can fool me badly a lot! They are maybe not as good on the appearance and performing for 100’s of people. As mentioned before, it just depends what you are looking for.
How much does it cost to hire a Magician in Devon?
It is difficult to give a specific price for hiring a magician in Devon as the cost can vary based on a number of factors such as the magician’s experience, the type of magic they perform, the duration of the performance, and any additional services they may offer. In general, wedding magicians in the UK charge anywhere from £250 to £1000 or more for their services. It is important to shop around and get quotes from several different magicians to find one that fits your budget and meets your needs. It is also a good idea to read reviews and ask for references to ensure that you are hiring a reputable and talented performer.
My typical prices for 2-3 hours on a Saturday night are between £450-£750
For events during the week this will be a bit cheaper, but the main part is my availability. There are only so many Saturdays in a year and that’s when everyone normally wants to have their party or get married!
What is a Close-up Magician?
A close-up magician is a performer who specializes in performing magic tricks and illusions for small groups of people, often using everyday objects such as cards, coins, and other small props. Close-up magic, also known as table magic or walk-around magic, is typically performed within arm’s reach of the audience and may involve audience participation. This type of magic is often performed at events such as weddings, corporate functions, and private parties, and can be a great way to entertain and engage guests. Close-up magicians may also perform in more formal settings such as theatre’s and television shows. The goal of a close-up magician is to create a sense of wonder and amazement in the audience through the use of sleight of hand and misdirection.
