Marvin Berglas elected president of The Magic Circle

Published on: 11th September 2023

Continuing his family legacy, the founder of Marvin’s Magic has been elected as the president of The Magic Circle.

The Magic Circle was formed in 1905 to promote magic and protect its heritage and is recognised as the world’s foremost magic society with around 1700 members around the world. These include all the top professional and elite magicians as well as hobbyists including celebrities like Stephen Fry, racing driver Nigel Mansell, politicians, QCs, captains of industry, policemen, teachers and journalists, who all perform magic and have passed the entrance exam. The most well known member is King Charles III who joined after performing a cups and balls trick in 1975.

Marvin follows in the footsteps of his famous father, David, the “International Man of Mystery”, who held the post from 1989-1998. Marvin and David are the first ever father and son to hold this prestigious position. David is now 97 years old and was extremely proud to witness his son Marvin being elected with such an overwhelming majority.

Marvin commented: “It was a truly special day in the Berglas family, and I’m so proud and honoured to have been elected by my peers to be the president of The Magic Circle. I have some exciting plans and it’s wonderful to continue the family legacy”.

Marvin’s Magic is a world renowned, established magic brand whose tricks and sets can be found in top stores in over 60 countries, including Hamleys and Harrods in London and FAO Schwarz in New York. The company’s magic sets have inspired many aspiring magicians.

The Marvin’s team will be flying the flag for the UK at the up coming New York Toy Fair.
