Hi, I’m Robert Bone, and I’m a professional magician and mind-reader. As you can imagine December is a busy time entertaining at Christmas parties, lunches and dinners.
Professional Christmas Party Magician
This can be a small private dining event, a house, or a large hotel function suite. The objective is always the same, give the guests good quality entertainment that not only gets them into the Festive spirit -- but is also FUN and engaging.
From a corporate point of view Christmas is a fantastic time, with lots of parties and hospitality events. This is a great way to say ‘thank you’ to your staff for the hard work they’ve been putting in for the last year, and to thank your clients for the business they have put your way.
Make it more than an office night out
However, it is easy for the office party to become a little stale. This can be because people are forced to socialise with workmates out of the usual office context, or if your staff go out regularly it could become just another office outing (just with turkey and crackers!)
Performing close-up magic is a great way to help enliven the party and create talking points. This may be at the start of the evening when I can mix around the groups performing close-up magic at a drinks reception.
Another option is to have the magic performed around the tables. This can sometimes be an awkward point in the evening as your guests may have run out of conversation (or worse still: be talking shop!) but until the disco kicks and they can mingle with other guests.
I also perform a stand-up magic and mind reading cabaret show that has been specifically produced for corporate audiences.
The show can be as short as 10 minutes, though to the full 45 minute after-dinner extravaganza. (Ok, I admit that “extravaganza” may be a little over the top, but it is a full production -- not a collection of tricks in a box -- with staging and PA.)
This can be booked separately or as part of a package with close-up magic. Feel free to give me a call so we can discuss the options to build the perfect package for you.
New Year’s Eve Parties
Another important date of the Festive season is New Year’s Eve, and I can be booked to entertain at your New Year’s Eve celebrations. After all the festivities through-out December you really need to add something to your party, otherwise it can be another year of drinking and “Auld Lang Syne”!
As a professional magician December is a very busy month and I often takes bookings for some dates over a year in advance, so don’t wait until a couple of weeks ahead.
