The Supreme Magic Company – “Every Trick In The Book”

Posted October 3, 2021 12:00 am by Laura Page under Exhibition

Join us for a new puppet exhibition at Bantock House Museum.

3 October 2021 - 9 January 2022

In 1953 Edwin Hooper, with a loan from his father and encouragement from other magicians, formed the Supreme Magic Company in Bideford, Devon. It soon became the world’s largest magic dealership and one of the UK’s biggest mail order companies with catalogues that ran to many hundreds of pages and customers such as Tommy Cooper and Paul Daniels. This exhibition charts the history of the company through some of the most famous tricks it sold.
