I’ve been a Surrey Magician for many years and weddings are an incredible place for me to perform my magic. Often people book me months or years in advance. Occasionally people book me before they’ve even booked the venue (which to be honest, although flattering, is a bit crazy and doesn’t happen often, but does happen). I’ve been performing as a close up magician in Surrey for over 20 years and in that time I’ve been to most venues I think.
Here are some of my favourite ones to perform in. There are a few reasons I’ve chosen these fantastic magic venues. Some of the rooms have a great atmosphere. At some venues the staff have been brilliant or just a combination of all the little things that make sure they are please to return to. I don’t have any affiliation or agreement with any of these – they’ve all just been a pleasure to perform at.
Pembroke Lodge, Richmond – Possibly my favourite venue in Surrey. I’ve lost count at the number of times I’ve performed magic here. Usually for weddings.
Nutfield Priory Hotel, Surrey – Fantastic venue and it’s spa hotel too, so that’s always a bonus.
Pennyhill Park, Bagshot – The staff here have always been great and helpful. It’s a great venue too.
Of course there are lots such as Denbies Wine Estate, Great Fosters, Hampton Court House, The Runnymede on Thames, Richmond Golf Club and dozens of others (apologies if I’ve missed you out!).
Why hire a Surrey Magician?
A magician can really make the difference at a wedding, party or corporate event. It’s always incredibly difficult to find entertainment that most people will. Obviously you’re always going to get the odd person that doesn’t like something. But the majority of people love magic!
It’s inoffensive, brings people together and creates unusual reactions from your guests. Most of the fun of magic is seeing other people react to the amazement. There aren’t many forms of entertainment that are so flexible (nothing to set up) and deliver such value in the incredible entertainment they give to people.
When is the best period to have a magician?
It depends on what else you have going on during the day, but there are 3 main periods you can hire a magician. The photo period, the wedding breakfast or the evening reception.
You can also have a combination. For instance, one of the most popular options is to have magic for an hour during the photo period and then leading straight in to table magic through the meal.
Is having a wedding magician tacky?
Obviously I would say no, but that’s not to say you can’t get tacky magicians. Make sure your magician looks great and will fit in well with your guests.
