In celebration, founder Marvin Berglas, who is also the Vice-President of The Magic Circle, interviewed Bruce in front of a packed Magic Circle audience during his regular Rabbit and Revelations quick fire interview segment which celebrates talents, diversity and creativity. They spoke about how he has probably done more live magic than any other magician in Britain, having demonstrated at Hamleys Regent Street for 30 years. His many celebrity customers included Princess Diana, Margaret Thatcher and of course Michael Jackson, who was famously a regular.
Marvin described him in three words: “perceptive, unique, royalty”, and presented him with special commemorative gifts to mark the occasion.
