Jamie Raven announces Making Magic Spectacular

Published on: 27th June 2019

The illusionist wowed audiences and judges alike with his magic skills on the 2015 series of Britain’s Got Talent.

Throughout July, August and September, Jamie Raven will be based at Bluewater where he will dazzle crowds with over 250 performances in a purpose-built theatre. Running alongside the theatre will be the Making Magic workshop, a Magic School where families will be given the opportunity chance to learn tricks and magic skills from the internationally renowned illusionist.

In 2017, the talented magician teamed up with Paul Lamond Games and now has a very successful series of Magic Sets available. The innovative range focuses on different areas of magic, and includes Card Magic, Magic of the Mind, Street Magic and Sleight of Hand. There is also a Jamie Raven Ultimate Magic Set which focuses on larger tricks for wowing family and friends. Budding magicians can also learn directly from the gifted illusionist; each Magic Set includes a ‘secret’ online link to a platform where Jamie demonstrates how to perform each trick and offers helpful performance hints and tips.

Jamie commented: “My love for magic just grew and have spent 25 years honing my craft. For the last 16 years I have performed professionally for celebrities, royalty and for audiences around the world. Magic has never been more popular and now, with the Making Magic Summer School, I hope to be the magician that sparks love and passion for magic with kids this summer.”

Richard Wells, managing director of University Games and Paul Lamond Games, believes that the profile of magic is gaining momentum. “There is certainly a new excitement around magic with the wave of new performance and illusion magic that we are seeing on our screens right now. Jamie has created a wonderful summer theatrical opportunity that is already gaining national TV and press exposure, and is certain to deliver on social media throughout the coming months. It really is the perfect time for retailers to get on board.”
