Britain's Got Talent magician Jamie Raven to open shows and magic school at Bluewater

by Lauren Abbott

A magician who shot to fame on Britain's Got Talent is taking up residence in Kent this summer with hundreds of live shows and a magic school.

Jamie Raven is famed for an act which made judge Simon Cowell exclaim 'I now actually believe in magic'.

Since his 2015 appearance on the reality show, in which he eventually finished as a runner-up, Jamie has toured the world with his solo show alongside numerous television appearances.

But the magician, who headlined The Illusionists in London’s West End which went on to break the box office record at The Shaftesbury Theatre, is preparing to embark on his biggest challenge right here in the county.

Throughout July, August and September Jamie will be performing 250 magic shows in a 125-seat purpose built theatre at Bluewater Shopping Centre.

The Making Magic event, which is guaranteed to be popular with families enjoying the school summer break will also run alongside a magic shop and magic school in a workshop space in which children and adults can learn a number of incredible tricks or take home their own Jamie Raven magic sets.

The entire experience, say organisers, will also be available as a birthday party experience in which children celebrating their big day can join Jamie Raven on stage to take part in one of the shows.

The internationally renowned illusionist and his team will be at the Greenhithe centre from July 15 until September 8 in the Lower Rose Gallery opposite the Winter Garden.

Tickets for the enchanting attraction are already now on sale. They begin at £12.50 for a standard show ticket with the opportunity to add-on priority tabled seating, magic gifts, a meet and greet with the star or time in the Magic School.
