Q: What age is this children’s magician suitable for?
A: This show has been created for children aged 4-7. The presentation changes a bit depending on whether most of the children at your party are older or younger within this bracket.
Q: Will this children’s magic show work in my home?
A: Yes absolutely! In fact this children’s show is perfect in homes. My approach to children's entertainment is not to get the children going bezerk. Instead, I captivate them with the show as they all sit and watch. What I aim to create is really the feeling of a theatre show for children.
Q: What do I need to provide?
A: I come all equipped. You provide the children and a quiet place to do the show.
Q: I have a two hour birthday party – how does your show fit into the overall scheme of things?
A: Recommended 'showtime' is usually a half hour into the party so everyone has arrived. It's good to not have anything too organized during that time. Sometimes parents have a treasure hunt, or have crafts to decorate magic hats or paint a map of the island. After that, the show lasts about 50 minutes. This leaves another 30 minutes for the children to have tea, birthday cake and maybe a game. Some parents do "Pass the parcel" or "musical statues." More ideas can be found on our children's party games ideas page.
Q: What about an after school show?
A: Food is top priority for after school shows. After they've eaten, then they are able to enjoy the show.
Q: The children at my party will be older than seven years. Can you cater for this?
A: I don't offer a show that is suitable for ages eight and up, however if you drop me a line I can offer a suggestion of a good source to find some children's magician options for that age.
Q: I don't want to manage party bags – do you have anything to offer?
A: Often parents like to offer the souvenir CD album of the show to each child which makes for a great bedtime story album or car journey entertainment as well as being a reminder of the story that takes place during the show.
Q: Can you wander about doing mix-and-mingle entertainment for children?
A: I do not offer this sort of children's entertainment, but I could suggest a good source in case that helps.
Q: We'll have a lot of adults there too. Is there anything you can do to keep them entertained as well?
A: I actually perform more for adults than I do for children. I have a variety of magical entertainment options for adults as well. You can check out my magician London website for some ideas. Having said that, I always have adults come sit down to watch the show while the children do. The adults often get swept away by the story as well.
