Magician Prices


If you’re looking for a quality magician in the West Midlands area, ladies and gentlemen; we have a winner! My fee reflects many years of experience, expert skills within the industry and the demand for a quality service.


As you can imagine, I’m not the cheapest. Instead, I’m suitably expensive!


Quotes for a quality close-up magician in the Midlands will start around £500. If you receive a quote much lower than this for two hours of entertainment, I’d look elsewhere. You’re more than likely to be disappointed with their offerings and at the end of the day, it’ll be money wasted.


Factors that will increase the fee:


  • Time of year (Christmas and New year – expect to pay more)
  • Hours required
  • The skillset of the magician
  • Travel costs
  • Special requirements – Tailor-made acts/tricks for trade show magic
  • Overnight accommodation


If in doubt, do a little research:


  • Check for independent reviews on third-party review sites (Google/Freeindex/Trust Pilot)
  • Watch recent videos and look for the enjoyment of the magician’s audience
  • Check for recent quality photographs
  • Inspect their Social media – Does it look healthy?


All of the above takes time and effort. If your magician is charging accordingly, it’ll be matched by their efforts to make sure all the above are nicely in place.
