Most people have never hired a Professional Magician before, and this can make it a difficult task.
On this page are the answers to a number of questions that I get asked most often. If you have a question and don’t see an answer here, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
I’ll keep confidentiality if it’s a really stupid question, don’t worry! (But seriously, theres no such thing as a bad question; so fire away!)
What do I need to provide you with?
Absolutely nothing! My performance is completely self contained! Ideally, I would like a corner to keep my stuff in but if even that’s too much, I’ll still manage! (seriously, though, it’s literally a corner. Or under a sofa. That will do too!)
Do you do kid's parties?
Unfortunately not. Children’s entertainment is a whole other kettle of fish which I’m not qualified to do. If there are going to be some kids at your event, though I will have plenty of awesome effects that will blow them away and i’m still very good with kids!
I'm hosting an event for charity, can you help?
Of course! I perform at charity events regularly. Unfortunately, I can’t perform for free. This is due to a number of reasons including the fact that I myself have expenses, the fact that doing so would undermine myself and other professional magicians and a whole host of other reasons. However, I would be more than happy to offer a discount or discuss alternatives such as gaining sponsorship for the entertainment with you. So please do get in touch and we’ll discuss it further!
Do you have a price list?
You won’t find prices on my website as every quote is bespoke depending on your event! Please get in touch and I’ll happily discuss your requirements and give you a totally free, no obligation quote.
How far in advance should I book you?
In order to avoid disappointment, I'd make sure you book me as far in advance as possible as I can get booked up for certain times of year very fast, however if it's a last minute event/ idea then don't hesitate to get in touch as I'd still love to help you get a suitable performer for your event!
Can I see you perform?
Yes! I regularly do public shows and local cabaret spots. To see when I'll be performing next, follow me on facebook at: www.fb.com/cgibsonmagic
How far do you travel?
While I'm based in central Scotland, I'm available to perform wherever you are. Whether that be elsewhere in Scotland, the UK or even Internationally, I'll be happy to travel so that you can have me at your event!
Do you have a real job, too?
My mum always asks me this and yes, this is my real job! I'm a full-time professional performer so you can be assured that you're getting quality and experience!
