Excerpt from BBC London:
At 102, Henry Lewis is the oldest member of the Magic Circle, an honorary life vice president and member of the Inner Magic Circle.
After finding a magic book in a rubbish bin as a child, Henry started making magic. His first public show at his local town hall in Acton - then throughout his life, he travelled to different countries to perform, including America and Canada. Last year, he did a special show for his fellow residents at his assisted care home in north London.
While Henry was never a professional magician, he took time away from his job as a successful auctioneer and used his beloved hobby to fund charitable causes.
He was recently awarded an MBE by Prince William at Windsor Castle for services to fundraising and charitable causes.
