"As always your team went down fantastically. I know within my team we were once again amazed by the performances"
Lionel CashinDaisy Ball Organiser
Having a magician at a function creates a wonderful ice breaker and talking point. It gives your guests an experience to savour at the table before the evening moves into a cabaret, music or fund raising.
However, the bigger the event, the more tables and therefore less time for the magician to perform at each table.
That's why if there are more than 10 tables a second magician is a great idea. For grander scale functions a team may be required.
Let's Do the Maths...
Dinner is usually three courses over a 90 minute period. (It can often take longer if games, speeches, explanation of silent auction, a chance to raise money for charity, or even a cabaret spot happen between the course)
Of that 90 minutes guests will generally be eating for 30 minutes. This leaves the magician 60 minutes to perform at every table.
This could be extended by performing while guests are eating, but I believe the food should be enjoyed as chef intended, hot and with no interruptions. The menu never says:-
Fillet Mignon with rich balsamic glaze, crushed potatoes, asparagus and a card trick!
Allowing guests to enjoy the food is a very important part of the evening. This is, in their eyes, what they have paid for.
Ten tables gives the magician just six minutes at each table, assuming there is no waiting for guests to return to the table from the bathroom, a cigarette run or from chatting to another table.
By having more than one performer the magicians longer to engage the table, leaving your guests with lasting memories of a truly magical and wonderful event.
As a recommendation one magician for every eight tables a great start point. However, more magicians = more magic at each table.
Mark has an elite team of top class magicians he can call on to meet the numbers required for your function. He also has a hand picked team of wonderful non-offensive caricaturists and silhouette cutters for something different, which also presents guests with a beautiful memory of the evening to take home.
