A magician who shot to fame on Britain’s Got Talent in 2015, is set to appear at the Marina Theatre – the Journal can exclusively reveal.

When appearing on the show, in front of millions of people, Jamie Raven even made Simon Cowell say “I now finally believe in magic!”

‘Jamie Raven Live’ will arrive at the theatre on Thursday, November 6 at 6pm, with tickets on sale from 10am tomorrow – Monday (April 11).

Jamie is currently headlining in West End show The Illusionists at the Shaftesbury Theatre.

His online videos have been watched over 100 million times – making him one of the most viewed magicians in the world.

Jamie has been perfecting his craft over the past 11 years, working as a magician around the world and his ambition was always to take it to a wider audience.

Jamie finished as runner-up on the show behind eventual winners Jules and Matisse.

For his final act, he plucked a bank note from a lemon – much to the amazement of Alesha Dixon and the other judges.

Amongst other exciting projects, he was asked to film a series of tricks for BBC Sport, at football grounds up and down the country to highlight the “Magic of the FA Cup” which aired at half time of the televised matches in each round.

The BBC also invited him to perform as part of “Bruce’s Hall of Fame” in which he was able to pay homage to one of his childhood hero’s – Tommy Cooper.

Jamie, who has also set to appear in an 18-date tour across the country in June and July, said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be going on tour. It’s been a dream of mine for 20 years and I can’t wait to get started.”
