Magic FAQ

Need a little more info about Dan Hudson and his magical performances? These frequently asked questions cover everything from length of shows, booking procedures to making your spouse disappear!

How Long is a Magical Performance?

Most events take between one to three hours; however, I can customise packages based on the occasion.

Will Dan Hudson Magician Cope with 100+ Guests?

Yes. The rule of thumb is one magician can entertain 100 guests in two hours. If you have more than 100 guests, you may need to book for more than two hours. Alternatively, I can arrange another great magician as I work with some of the best in the business.

What About Public Liability Insurance?

Dan Hudson Magician has £10 million of public liability cover.

Does Dan Have Any References?

Yes – many of these are scattered about my website, on the Dan Hudson Magician Facebook page, or available on request.

How Far in Advance Should We Book?

I get booked up to eighteen months in advance – please book early to avoid disappointment.

Core months like July, August and September are wedding season,  and weddings are planned a long way in advance.

November and December get busy with Christmas functions.

Can You Make My Husband or Wife Disappear?

I get asked this at least once at every booking! I have a few funny answers. If you really want this, I can put you in contact with my Cousin Tony.

Dan Hudson Magician Website Lacks Prices, Why?

Every event is different, that’s the reason. Get in touch and give me as much detail about the event as possible so I can quote you.

What Happens If Dan is Ill and Can't Make Our Event?

To date, I have never been late or not turned up for a booking.

Should I be taken ill (I’m Superman; this won’t happen), I will do my best to cover your event. I work closely with fantastic magicians, and we will find someone to cover your event.

Your Quote is at the High End, Why is This?

My fee directly reflects the quality of the magic and service I will offer to make your event fantastic.

The saying “pay peanuts and get monkeys” comes to mind, which is fine if you’re organising a chimp’s tea party.

What is the Cost of a Magician to Hire?

Get in touch, give me as much detail as possible, date, location, type of event etc. and I will provide you with a quote.

Do You Need to Pay a Deposit?

Yes, please. A deposit is normally about 20% of the fee and is taken to secure the date.

Which Areas Does Dan Hudson Magician Cover?

Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Hampshire, Surrey and London are my main areas of travel.

However, I am open to travelling across the UK. Please contact me to discuss your location.
