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 LONG DO YOU TYPICALLY PERFORM FOR?
For smaller events (up to 50 guests) an hour is a good amount of time for me to entertain everyone. For larger events from 50-80 people I recommend at an hour and a half, and for over 100+ guests 2 hours may be needed so that I am able to get round everyone. I’ll do my best to work with your timings of the day to ensure I entertain as many people as possible.
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
I charge a very competitive rate based on the current market with prices starting from £200. 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 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 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. If I am not available for your event, I will do my best to help you find another magician.
DO YOU NEED A DEPOSIT/BOOKING FEE?
Usually I take a small booking fee to secure the booking. This is only done after we have confirmed that you would like to go ahead with the booking and to secure the date in my diary.
DO YOU OFFER A GUARANTEE?
Yes, I am proud to offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee if you are not completely satisfied with my performance at your event. When I am hired to perform at your event I check in with you at the start and at the end of the event to ensure everything ran smoothly and that you are happy.
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.
