Frequently Asked Questions
Here is a list of commonly asked questions that you may have about hiring Elliott for your event.
What type of magic do you perform?
I perform entertaining and baffling close up magic with playing cards, money and the powers of the mind. I like to keep my magic direct, powerful and easily remembered. I aim to involve everyone in the group and make sure that everyone is having a great time.
How far do you travel?
I predominately work in the Edinburgh, Lothians and Fife regions, however I can travel further. Contact me to see if I am available to entertain in your area.
Are you available for my event?
You can get a good idea by sending an enquiry with the details of your event on the Contact page of this site.
How much do you charge?
The big question! I charge a very competitive rate based on the current market. Due to the variety of events that I perform and the wide area I cover I don't include my fees on this site. Please make an enquiry and I'll send a free quote for you to consider.
How long do you typically perform for?
For smaller events (up to 50 guests) an hour is enough. For larger events from 50-100 people 2 hours may be needed so that I am able to get round everyone.
How far in advance should we book you?
As soon as possible. The weekends and Friday nights are the busiest days for magicians, and holidays like Christmas and New Year are a very popular time.
What is the process of booking you?
First make an enquiry and I'll send you a quote for your event. If you would like to go ahead with the booking I'll send you (via email) a booking form for you to fill in and post back to me with a deposit to secure the date. I'll also be in touch before the event just to make sure everything is going ahead as planned.
