The Academy of Magical Arts Lifetime Achievement to the Davenport Family

The Davenport Family would like to record our grateful thanks for the honour of being selected by the Magic Castle Board of Trustees as the recipient of the 2024 Lifetime Achievement Award. The Award recognises the family’s contribution to keeping magic alive in England and beyond over parts of three centuries. Lewis Davenport started it all, with help from his mother in the early days of growing his magic business. So, it’s probably fair to say that five generations of the family have done their best to keep magic alive. We greatly appreciate the award.
