Mystery Room Magician
The Mystery Room magician is a simple idea with huge possibilities and a different dynamic to either table magic or strolling magic. The basic idea is that the host allocates one room just for the magician. The guests are all told that there is a surprise for them all and they get to find out in small groups. This of course creates huge interest, banter and second guessing and this builds until they are invited to the Mystery Room. The guests can be invited in a couple of ways:
- The host can grab a small group and bring them to the Mystery Room. This is a great way for the host or organiser to mingle with all their guests and say hello to them even if they haven’t got a huge amount of time to spend with everybody.
- Noel can pop into the main room and grab a group without giving them any clue as to where they are being brought!
Each group size depend on how many guests are attending but obviously as its close up magic smaller groups are best, with the maximum of about 20 people in each group. The Mystery Room concept is the best way to experience close up magic, with a quiet room and perfect sightlines so everybody can get really up close and personal. Once a group has seen the act and are about to leave Noel asks them m to please keep the secret and to remain silent no matter what the pressure is…soon enough everybody will have seen the amazing close up magic and the secret is out.

Noel says “I never get to hear what jokes people are making about what the surprise might be but I’m sure there is some fairly outlandish and scandalous suggestions. As soon as the new group walks in I let them sit down and let the tension build. When I start you can see the excitement in their faces and they experience close up magic in the very best possible way”.
