AN ACCLAIMED magic show is coming to Durham later this month.

Following a hugely successful tour in spring 2012, Pete Firman, the star of BBC One’s primetime magic show The Magicians, is touring the UK again in 2013 with an all-new box of mind-bending tricks.

His skill for fusing magic and comedy has made him one of the most in-demand magicians working on British television, writing and performing in magic shows such a Monkey Magic (Channel 5), Dirty Tricks (Channel 4) and The Secret World of Magic (Sky One).

Mr Firman has also won critical acclaim for his debut solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and performances on the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal.

He has toured the UK with three solo theatre shows, most recently Jiggery Pokery in 2012.

His Durham show will be held at the Gala Theatre on Tuesday, February 26, at 8pm. Doors open at 7.30pm.

This event is for over 14s only. Tickets cost £15.00, with concessions at £13.00.

To book, visit or call 0191-332-4041.
