CORONAVIRUS: Latest updates here.
The master illusionist is back and ready to stun, thrill and bemuse with his new production Showman. Whilst the details of this exciting new venture remain a closely guarded secret, Brown has revealed that the show will "will ultimately be about you, the audience member, because that's what I find most interesting. There are places I'd like to take the audience where we haven't been before." Knowing what the man has cooked up before, it's likely that Showman will be his most mind-bending live tour yet!
Approaching National Treasure status
Derren Brown first came to public attention in 2000 when he presented a series of television specials called Mind Control. Never once claiming to be a magician or to have powers, he has redefined magic for a whole new audience and is the ultimate self-confessed trickster. He has played Russian Roulette on live television in Jersey, convinced normal people to commit an armed robbery in the street, led the nation in a spooky live seance, predicted correct Lottery numbers, motivated a selfish man to survive a zombie apocalypse, and exposed so-called faith healers and spiritualists who con the public. Oh and he even appeared on the BBC drama Sherlock in a cameo!
Opening night: 4 August 2020
