Five world-class illusionists are heading to Norwich with a show that will wow audiences.

Champions Of Magic is set to arrive at Norwich Theatre Royal on April 1, a date which also marks a homecoming for one of the performers, Alex McAleer.

The mind-reader from Norwich has recently appeared on NBC and ABC in America and demonstrated his magical prowess to viewers of Good Morning Britain.

Joining him in the show include International Stage Magician of the Year, Edward Hilsum and grand illusionists Young and Strange who are promising disappearances, re-appearances and some dangerous set-pieces.

Champions Of Magic comes to Norwich hot on the heels of several State-side dates.

The show's producer, Alex Jarrett, said: 'Following a huge tour across North America, we are excited to bring the show home to the UK with some never before seen magic that's been in development for the last year. With every tour the team add new illusions, bigger special effects and more incredible tricks, making it more unbelievable than ever.'

Mr McAleer added: 'There are two parts to my section of the show. The first is an opportunity to have fun with the audience by showing everyone you should not play cards with a mind-reader like me.
