Illusionist and mind-controller Derren Brown is the latest in a list of big names to head to Lowestoft this year.

The TV star, famous for his recent controversial Heist programme on Channel 4 - where he persuaded four managers unwittingly to carry out an armed robbery - is set to come to the town's Marina Theatre as part of his national tour, Something Wicked This Way Comes.

The 34-year-old has been hailed as a "phenomenon" for his work including live Russian roulette and séance TV specials.

He will be performing at the 750-seat theatre on April 23.

Before then, top comedian Jimmy Carr, singer Barbara Dickson and former footballer and pundit Jimmy Greaves are set to entertain at Britain's most easterly theatre.
