How much do you charge?
If this is your first question, then I’m probably not the magician for you. The people who hire me are not looking for ‘cheap’, they are looking for quality. That said, we all like good value for money!
It’s impossible to put a price here that will cover all events, but perfectly reasonable to give a guide. My prices generally range between £350 – £1,200 for a single performance. Let me know a bit more about your event and I’ll respond with exact pricing just for you.
How long do you perform for?
It depends on the specific details of an event, but usually between 1 and 3 hours.
I also offer a 25 minute cabaret slot for smaller gatherings.
I have over 100 guests coming, will you be able to cope with that many?
Yes. I can entertain up to 150 guests myself while performing Table Magic or Mix and Mingle Magic. For numbers above 100, another option is to hire a second magician. I can sort all of this for you too. You don’t want to start looking for another great prestidigitator (magician!). I work with the best magicians in the UK. Rest assured that the magician I choose to work along side me will be one of the top performers available within your budget.
Are you a member of the magic Circle?
I certainly am. And not just any ‘magic circle’ (of which there are hundreds), but THE Magic Circle (of which there is only one!) I have written a little about The Magic Circle (as opposed to the smaller clubs) in Magic Verbiage. Another mark of approval to look out for is being a member of Equity.
Are you insured?
Yes. As I member of Equity, I have public liability insurance for up to £10 million.
Is this your full time job?
Yes! Unlike many magicians who perform the odd gig here and there after finishing their ‘day job’, my magic is the main source of our family income.
Do you offer any guarantees?
Yes! 100% Money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied with my performance. I have never been asked for a refund!
Can you provide me with any references?
Yes! I have performed for hundreds of clients and any number of them would be more than happy to give me a reference. Take a look at my ‘Magician Reviews’ page to see some of their comments.
I found someone cheaper, why should I hire you?
If price is your main concern, then you shouldn’t. I advise you to go with the cheaper magician and hope for the best. However, if ‘value’ is more important and hiring someone who guarantees that they will entertain your guests, you may want to think again.
As with most things you get what you pay for. Take a look at some of the things that other people have said about me on this website or ask to speak to them yourself! Some of the cheaper magicians will be great one day, we all had to start somewhere. However, anyone charging significantly less is doing so for a reason. Do you really want to take a chance on the memories you will be leaving with your guests?
How do I booking you?
It’s a simple! Just fill in a few details in the enquiry form, or phone 01934 660102. Once we have agreed the details, you’ll receive a deposit invoice. Once the deposit is paid your date will be confirmed in my diary.
How far in advance should I book?
I have answered this more fully in this blog post, but the simple answer is:
Book as soon as you can, but it’s never too late to ask.
