Sleight of hand magic is a perfect ice breaker for your guests – at many parties and events, you will find that not all your guests will necessarily know each other. A commonly shared talking point is the best approach to get everyone chatting and magic is the perfect solution.

With magic on TV being very popular at the moment from the likes of Penn and Teller, Dynamo, and the great talent we’ve seen on Britain’s Got Talent, people are more receptive than ever to great close up magic performed well.

Experience as a magician in Manchester

It’s extremely easy these days to watch a few videos on YouTube, buy some “tricks” from the internet and set up a website advertising as a Close Up Magician. However, it takes years of commitment and dedication to perfect the required skills in order to, for want of a better word “fool” guests in such a way they are left amazed and entertained, rather than made to feel embarrassed or stupid.

Also, there are always moments at events where fast thinking and improvisation are required – this cannot be taught and relies solely on experience. Nick’s routine has been honed over many years and is always being updated and improved to stay modern and current.

Bookings and Professionalism

All bookings are taken using a unique online booking system which is extremely efficient and easy to use. Bookings and event details are confirmed online. Final details are run through around a week before the event to ensure everything goes perfectly.

For all of his event bookings, Nick arrives early, is smartly presented and never uses bad language of any sort. He has Public Liability Insurance through Equity Membership required by most venues when he works as a Manchester Magician.

Price – how much is a magician in Manchester, UK?

Prices for an entertainer is ultimately dictated by how popular they are – each date can only be booked out once and other enquires then have to be turned away. How “in demand” a magician is will therefore affect the rate.

Nick is very popular and in-demand taking bookings as far as 2 years in advance, however, it’s worth getting in touch even for short notice events as there is always a chance a date may be available as it’s not an exact science!

Although not the cheapest magician in Manchester – Nick’s prices are very competitive even though his routine, reliability, experience and professionalism are far beyond that of any other magician of a similar price range.

As each event is unique, Nick offers free quote services and is very quick to respond to enquiries.

Table Magicians

Booking a table magician is a brilliant idea to entertain guests between the courses of a meal. Dinner magic creates amazement and laughter around the room – you’ll always know where the table magician is from the applause, cheers and laughter that follow!

For larger events, Nick very often works as a team of table magicians, making sure that no table is left out. In 2 hours, Nick can personally entertain around 12 – 15 tables depending on how the flow of the event runs and if there any interruptions such as speeches etc. Depending on how many guests are attending, you may need a team of table magicians to cover everyone, this is something Nick can arrange for you.

Top Tip – it’s a good idea to keep the table centre decorations low and small so everyone on the table can see the table magician and in particular his hands!

After Dinner Magician / Dinner Show

Nick’s magic is a highly specialised, close up and personal show not suitable for the stage. Although Nick does not provide an after-dinner show personally, he can bring a member of his team along who specialises in this area of entertainment. It is completely different to close up magic, requiring larger props, mic and sound equipment etc.

Whether you are after a large scale illusion show like David Copperfield, or Comedy Magic similar to Penn and Teller, a suitable magician act can be provided to entertain your guests and will leave a lasting impression.

Please get in touch and he will be very happy to help advise.
