frequently asked questions
What areas do you cover?
Dumfries & Galloway, Central Scotland, Edinburgh, Dunfermlin, Hamilton, Airdrie, Motherwell, East Kilbride, Coatbridge, Troon, Prestwick, Ayr and Cumbria as a Children's Entertainer and Comedy Magician.
How much is your travelling allowance?
There is no charge within 25 miles of Castle-Douglas. Any events outwith this radius will be charged £10 for every hour travelled.
Can I have the party at home?
You can have the party at home if you have an 8ft x 8ft performance area with a power point and room in front for the audience to sit. Due to the props used in my show it is sadly not viable for outdoors.
How long is the Magic Show?
The Magic Show lasts around 50 minutes and also includes a very funny magical interview with the birthday child. Magic Monty arrives at the venue one hour before the party starts. This allows him time to set up and position the tables and chairs to give the best possible stress free Magic Show!
What age groups do you cover?
The perfect ages for the children's Magic Show would be 4yrs up to 8yrs old. The "Fool Monty" comedy magic show is suitable for anyone from 15 to 105 years old!
How is payment handled? And do you require a deposit?
Payment can be made preferebly in cash before the start of the show. A bank transfer can also be made the day before the performance. I do not require a deposit to secure the booking.
May I take photos during the show?
Absolutely! There are loads of social media worthy photo opportunities throughout the show. Don't forget to tag Magic Monty on Facebook when sharing your photos.
Can I book balloon twisting or facepainting without the Magic Show?.
Yes of course! Balloon twisting costs £75 per hour and Face painting would be £40 per hour. Please check out my Gallery page to see examples of balloon twisting and Amy's face painting skills.
