Be prepared for a once-in-a-lifetime theatrical experience when the master of psychological illusion returns to the stage with Derren Brown: Enigma. Derren will once again bewilder, baffle and bewitch and show why he is one of the country’s most revered live performers; a master of magic, mind control and psychological illusion. This is the second leg of his fourth tour and is expected to sell out as it did in 2009 throughout the UK. Derren says: ”Like previous shows, I will absolutely push myself to the limit. The challenge is to create new material that shocks, surprises and defies explanation. The audience will be taken for a theatrical roller-coaster ride, and I hope it’s an experience that they will never forget”. The performance is not suitable for children under 12 years. “Brilliant...there was nothing for it but to surrender to his control” Mail On Sunday
