Biography

He performed most notably at Harrow School, King's School, Ely, and Blue Coat School, Horsham.

Barrs was a member of both the Magicians' Club and the Magic Circle.[1]

The Magic Circular was referring to him as the "late" Barrs by 1946 and the Magical Gazette for October 1946 contained "an appreciation of the late Percy Barrs".

His son, Richard Barrs, won a competition held at Maskelyne's Theatre on 13th April, 1932, from fifty other juvenile competitors.
