How to Hire a Magician FAQS

Speicifically the magician Ed Sumner (that's me) but feel free to use these questions to inform yourself about others too

If you've never hired a magician before, then you probably have a few question about how to do it. What should you ask to make sure the magician you hire...

  • will be a good fit for your event?
  • has the skills and experience to perform as a magician?
  • will turn up at your event?
  • has plans in place in case things don't run as expected?

And I'm sure you want to know how much does a magician cost?

Well, on this page, I answer all that and more with a few common pre-purchase questions I often get asked. There's a fair bit to read here, but I hope you find this useful in helping you to make a decision. If you want a more in depth answer, have a different question or simply want to find out more about me then feel free to give me a call.

MY PROMISE

Magic is enjoyed by many because of the memories that are formed when people share something impossible together! My performances spark the stories you'll be telling throughout your event and for many years after.

What will yours be?

Ed regularly performs magic for weddings, anniversaries, parties and corporate events in Birmingham, Nottingham, Staffordshire, and Shropshire. But you can hire him to perform anywhere. In fact, it's recommended that you do! 😊
