Jamie Raven burst onto an unsuspecting world as runner-up of the 2015 series of Britain’s Got Talent. His magic amazed audiences and even made Simon Cowell exclaim, “I now finally believe in magic!” on route to finishing, in his own words, as “Top Human”.
His online videos from Britain’s Got Talent and other subsequent performances have now been seen over 400 million times, making him one of the most viewed magicians in the world today.
In November and December 2015, Jamie headlined box office record-breaking The Illusionists at the Shaftesbury Theatre; 2016, 2017 and 2018 saw him take his own solo shows on tours across 5 countries and hundreds of performances. Following the incredible successes of his live tours and numerous TV appearances, last year Jamie was invited to St James’s Palace to perform privately for HRH Prince Charles as part of his Christmas celebrations.
Jamie's magic shop, magic school and 100-seat magic theatre MAKING MAGIC opened at Bluewater Shopping Centre in summer 2019. https://www.jamieraven.co.uk/makingmagic/
Jamie has launched a range of five Jamie Raven Magic Sets, which are available in UK retailers including Sainsbury’s and Harrods, as he continues in his efforts to inspire the next generation of magicians.
