Magic moments

Blackpool, magic and me

Leslie Melville is a magician. What a fun job to have! He first discovered magic in 1942 when he was just nine years old when he came across Paul Clive’s magic shop on Blackpool’s North Pier. This was the very same shop that Harry Corbett bought the glove puppet that became famous as Sooty!
