Your manager has left it late again, the job of organising the work party has been left to you, you have barely any time and just want the event to go smoothly. Put your trust in me to walk you through the planning stages to ensure you pull off the impossible. First thing and often the most important is to hire a professional entertainer. As a Leicester magician, I can offer you invaluable advice to ensure your event goes smoothly.
The most important part of arranging a works event or function is getting the entertainment right. As a magician in Leicester I would recommend going online and looking at the entertainer’s websites. Do they look like they work on a regular basis? Check for blog posts and performance footage or photographs? If they are all in a studio it’s a good indication that they don’t have much experience.
Have you now created a short list of potential Leicester Magicians? Now is an ideal time to get in touch with these performers to discuss your requirements. One of the key things to discuss with them is the type of performances that they can offer to you. There are a wide range of different styles and options such as after dinner magic, close up magic and specialist trade show performances. What do you think would be the most suitable for your event? If you are not sure, ask them. They will be able to recommend an option that you will compliment your event.
So by now, things should hopefully be shaping up. You have a suitable performance option lined up and a shortlist of performers including a Leicester magician. Now is the time to check their credentials. Look for testimonials or client quotes from previous bookings. If they don’t appear on their site, it’s a reasonable indication that they don’t perform as much as they let on. Testimonials are a hugely important thing to showcase, successful performers are proud to display. If yours doesn’t, time to look elsewhere.
So your performer of choice checks out? Their show reel and testimonials are all fantastic, well its now time to book that Leicester magician and confirm them for the event. Be quick as they can get booked up well in advance, don’t leave it till the last minute as you can be sure to be disappointed. You may be required to pay a small deposit up front to secure the booking. On average this is about 20% and is often non refundable in the event of a cancellation. Make sure when signing any confirmation paperwork that you read the small print. All details will be there, and all acts will be slightly different. By following the guide laid out in this article you will have done more than the vast majority of people looking at hiring an entertainer for an event. Good luck and I know you event will be fantastic!
