London has the highest population of magicians in the UK, closely followed by other major cities such as Birmingham & Manchester. There are some of the worlds finest magicians and mind readers in London, thus finding a performer is quite easy. However it is still important to research whomever you maybe considering if you have never seen them before.
Packaging can always attract even the most judgemental mind but as the old saying goes, never judge a book by it’s cover and this is especially true when potentially booking a magician or mind reader in London. A flashy website with well written text and testimonials is quite easy to obtain, along with atmospheric photography. The most important thing to do is see if you can watch them in action, performing for real people in the real world. If they have a good showreel you can pretty much be certain they know what they are doing.
If there is only footage of them performing in their bedroom, chances are that’s where most of their magic is performed so don’t bother. If they do not have any footage, either on their website or on a youtube channel which is free and accessible to anyone, we’d suggest looking elsewhere.
