First of all: Why hire a magician for a kid’s party?

Spain is home to one of the best types of magic in the world, as it isn’t just a magic show, but it can also be funny to watch and makes everybody in the audience laugh.

It is an unforgettable show that anyone would love to have at their party, because it brings out the best of everybody’s emotions, as well as having a great visual and comical impact. Everyone loves magic, and being able to experience it with others is a real luxury!

Additionally, children can take part in the show as the magician can involve them in the magic tricks, which makes the birthday boy or girl feel special and makes great memories for their friends as it’s so fun to get on stage.

The best thing is that you can hire them for wherever you want the event to be, whether it’s in your home, in a venue you hire, in the street or wherever you can think of, the magicians will travel anywhere as if by magic!

Fun, humour, music and laughter are all guaranteed with a magician!

How much does it cost to hire a magician?

The price of hiring one depends on many factors, such as the show’s duration, the magician’s level of experience, or the party’s location.

These are all costs that have to be taken into account because the price will be increased if they have to travel a long way to get to the event location, the children are very young or the show goes on for a long time.

To give you an idea, hiring a magician can cost between €120 to €400, but prices most often range from €150 to €250.

It is an affordable service, and the great thing about hiring a magician for children is that they will be surprised by the more basic tricks, so the magician doesn’t need to be too highly experienced.

When exactly should you hire the magician for the party?

You should hire the magician in advance, by first asking for a quote and then agreeing to the contract.

We aren’t exaggerating! Many professionals have busy schedules at times of the year like Spring when there is a high demand for events like communions, christenings, birthday parties and other children’s events.

Get a pen and paper, and note down these tips to consider for hiring a children’s magician!

First, set a maximum budget that you want to spend on hiring the magician for your party, so that you only look at professionals within your price range and you won’t be caught off guard when it comes to making the payment.

Secondly, don’t focus on the first magician you find, look for a few and ask for quotes so that you can compare prices and choose between the options that best suit you.

Thirdly, don’t just look at the price! There are a lot of other important factors, such as the magician’s level of experience, their ability to entertain the children, and their reviews.

A trick is to also ask for a quote for different days in the week, because if you don’t mind whether the party is on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, you’ll see how the price varies depending on the day! As well as the timetable, the prices in the evening will be somewhat higher.
