Bruce Smith celebrates landmark anniversary

Published on: 20th April 2018

The Marvin’s Magic demonstration training manager is celebrating 30 years at Hamleys.

L-R: Marvin and Bruce.

Marvin’s Magic has always been a pioneer of in-store theatre, combining engaging demonstrations with strong sales. Bruce has played a big part in this, working closely with Marvin to ensure that the Marvin’s Magic demonstrators provide memorable experiences for customers.

To mark the occasion, Marvin, who is also the vice-president of The Magic Circle, interviewed Bruce in front of a Magic Circle audience during his regular Rabbit and Revelations quick fire interview segment which celebrates talents, diversity and creativity. Marvin spoke about how Bruce has probably done more live magic than any other magician in Britain, having demonstrated at Hamleys Regent Street for three decades. His many celebrity customers included Princess Diana, Margaret Thatcher and, of course, Michael Jackson, who was a regular.

Marvin described Bruce in three words – perceptive, unique and royalty – and presented him with special commemorative gifts.
