Follow  The Key To Magic

Magic is a great hobby that builds confidence and grace in children and adults alike. The magical arts is all about connecting with people in a unique and extraordinary way.

The original magician's oath which was popular till 2008 and was 
created over 2400 years ago in Greece by Charlatates.

‘As a magician, I promise never to reveal the secret of any illusion to a non-magician unless that one swears to uphold the Oath in turn. I promise never to perform any illusion for any non-magician without first practicing the effect until I can perform it well enough to maintain the illusion of magic.’

Zain has been performing magic for over 20 years and has had many inspirational teachers. One of these is our friend Julian Mather and you are cordially invited to Julian's Magicians School here:

Read these important party tips!

Hire A Magician For A Birthday Party!



Here at Magic Of Zain, we understand that party planning 
can occasionally sit squarely on one overwhelmed Mom or Dad. 
We are here to help!

Here is a quick checklist from our friends at Children's Mutual:

Parent's Guide To Children's Birthday Celebrations!



If money is no object and you can afford a Party Planner, they will organize everything on your wish list, but at a cost. Alternatively, you could rise to the challenge, engage family and friends and save money along the way.

Whatever you decide keep it simple!

Planning Tips



Budget – set one immediately because it will determine what type of event you hold.

Home or Away– now that you know how much is in the ‘kitty’, decide whether to have the party at home or another venue – why not involve the birthday person, after all they sometimes know best!

Book early – if you’re booking a venue or entertainer, do it early because the best ones will get booked well in advance.

Guests – when you’re considering ‘how many’, think about your budget and the chosen location – don’t forget that when holding a party for younger children it may be handy to have the parents there too.

Invitations – send out invites three to four weeks before the event.

Shopping – shop online – they deliver and will save you valuable time.

Helpers – ask friends and family to help, give older siblings some responsibility they’ll thrive on it!

Order of play – it may be difficult to stick to it rigidly on the day but use it as a guide.

‘Plan B’ – always have a contingency plan, especially if you intend having an outside event – as we all know, you can’t rely on our weather!

Presents – when opening, make a note of who gave what for the Thank You letter
Choosing a venue

When choosing take into account the cost, age, location, size, catering, theme and safety. Once you have a favourite arrange to visit the venue when it’s in full swing – you can then gauge whether it would suit your requirements.

Have a list of questions ready to ask including:

Availability - will the venue be available for the required dates and times?

Cost – what it includes – numbers (off peak times maybe cheaper), party leader, food/drink/cake, entertainment, music, activities, supervisors, party bags, decorations?

Private or shared use?

DIY – can you hire the venue but provide your own catering (check facilities), entertainment, music, decorations, bouncy castle etc?

Timings – party times and possibility of going in early to prepare?

Parking – allocated to your group, is it free, is there a drop-off zone for guests’ parents?

Staff – how many/which staff will be available on the day?

Safety/First Aid – Lifeguards (pool party), First Aid kit, equipment checks?

Emergency procedures – evacuation, exits etc?

Insurance – what does it cover?

Contingencies – do they have a ‘Plan B’ in case of weather (outdoor venues), staff sickness etc?

Book early – the best ones go quickly. Get a contact name, number and written confirmation

Check off the guests on arrival.

If there isn’t a cloakroom take a large container for coats and shoes.

Don’t forget the cake knife and candles.

Blu-Tack, tape and scissors may come in handy.

Take refuse sacks for presents and rubbish.

Have a table for presents and cards.

Check out where the toilets are before the guests arrive.

Make sure you have an adult at all the ‘escape routes’.

Run through emergency procedures with your helpers.
Invitations

When planning a date you will need to consider what else is going on around that time. Your child will be very disappointed that their friends can’t attend if the party clashes with other events.

School holidays – check with your child’s ‘best friends’ parents of their plans.

Other parties on that day – obviously avoid these (unless you have a joint party which could save valuable cash!).

Top Tips
Entertainers


If you’re holding the party at a venue, check that it is ok to have an entertainer.

Ask what the package includes – prizes, party bags, activities etc.

Is there a Video/website?

Book early – the best ones will go.

Is there a contingency plan in case of sickness, travel problems etc.

Ask the entertainer if you need to provide anything for their act.

The booking should be confirmed in writing.
Games and activities

When choosing games, think about how much space you have.

Make them easy to understand so they are fun.

If an activity is ‘messy’, make sure the guests have aprons, but have some spares.

Plan extra games and activities in case they finish sooner than you expected.

Research party games online – there are loads of ideas!


We hope this helps!




Best,

Nicole

Fantastic! Best magician we've ever hired!

By Ria T. on February 20, 2017
I would highly recommend Zain and his wife for face painting and performing magic show. They were both super nice and had positive high energy to everyone and especially to the kids. All 50 kids at my party got custom balloons and face painting. They're worth every penny! Book early since they get booked pretty fast.

Thank you so much Zain for making my daughter's birthday so memorable.

Thank you for arranging a wonderful magic show for my son's birthday. Zain was just superb - good at magic but, just as important, good with kids. There were roars of laughter coming from the crowd. The kids' eyes were filled with anticipation waiting to see what would occur next. Nicole did a great job on face painting as well. Thank you very much.

Zain did a magic show for my son's birthday party last weekend. All the kids there enjoyed it very much. Some of them were asking his details so they could get him to perform at their own party. He also did balloon twisting and Nicole did face painting. Her designs were all very detailed and professional looking.

Zain and Nicole were fantastic at our son's first birthday party this weekend. The children and adults were entertained and laughing the entire time. We have had numerous friends ask where we found the entertainment. Zain and Nicole's energy is contagious and really sets the tone for the party.

Absolutely Fantastic! Recommend 1000%

By Cecilia H. on January 16, 2017
We hired Zain for our son's first birthday. From the start Zain and his wife/assistant were exceptionally helpful with questions and planning after regular work hours. The week of the event, weather was calling for snow/ice. Zain and his wife were ready to work with us to switch the date around, show up extra early, do whatever needed to be done to make sure the event would still be a success. Zain personally called me to ease my worry, they really are top notch.
The show was everything the kids and parents could've hoped for! His show was so inclusive, he had everyone from the 10 year olds to our two year old laughing so hard and fully engaged. He fully engaged all the children and even the parents in the jokes and fun. I would 1000% recommend The Magic of Zain, their customer service and genuine concern for a successful event is worth every penny! And it certainly was a great help to have one less thing to worry about for this party planning Mom. We loved the show and will look forward to maybe hiring them again for other birthdays!

Tremendous Show

By Daniel H. on January 16, 2017
We hired Zain for our son's 1st birthday, understanding that there would be limitations in comprehension for him and the other younger children. With this understanding we had a blast. The children, and the adults were fully engaged and really enjoyed themselves. His desire and thoughtfulness to insure the happiness and inclusion of every single child there was what really made the party exceptional. We have nothing but incredible things to say about Zain, and his wife/assistant. Their service and professionalism was second to none, and would would absolutely hire them again.

*side note* Todd another reviewer on this website left a two star review claiming they attended our son's party. We don't know any Todd's, nor was one invited... you should disregard, or assume that this is a competitor trying to sully the name of a great performer and magician.

Zain is awesome! HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Zain and Nicole were great from the very first conversation to the evening of the performance! They both were professional, communicative, and put on a fantastic show for a lively group of 4-5 year old kids (and their parents). Zain is an excellent magician and his comedic performance was funny and appropriate for the age group. He gave the right amount of attention to the birthday girl, and included her friends in his performance. All in attendance commented on how great the performance was, and we would highly recommend Zain for your next party or celebration.

Priceless perfect presentation.

By Ramesh D. on April 7, 2016
I have no words to express about Magic of Zain. Such a smooth start right from the start to the finish. The magic show was very engaging for all age groups and was so relaxing to see the audience captivated throughout the event. Best part is that kids were actually performing the magic and had a great time. Not to forget face painting time kids loved with Nicole who was very patient all the while. The package included balloon twisting as well for no extra cost which was like an added bonus and a short video of the show was cool too. And we could not ask for anything more. I highly recommend Magic of Zain to all party planners. Very enjoyable experience to one and all.

Captivating!

By Myah W. on March 7, 2016
There is something about ZAIN that sets him apart from other magicians, whether it’s his ability to relate to people from age (7-70), captivate and mesmerize his audience or his commitment to provide outstanding professional service, ZAIN is truly redefining the art of MAGIC.
