Kevin recently broke the Guinness World Record for the biggest ever magic lesson, in aid of the Royal Blind charity.

The professional magician, who began his career as a scientist before taking part in Channel 4’s ‘Faking It’, where he was introduced to the world of magic, has been affiliated with the charity for the past five years.

He said: “I am delighted to be invited back to perform for the Rock Trust year after year.”
