SWINDON Arts Centre will welcome a TV comedian and magician to its stage next year.

Pete Firman is a familiar face on the small screen, appearing on BBC One, ITV and Channel 4.

Now he will be bringing his talents to the town with his new tour.

He said: “I’m thrilled to be back on tour with a different style of magic show.

"I’ll be placing my trust and reputation in the hands of some special guests with buckets of enthusiasm, but zero sleight of hand skills.

"Suffice to say we won’t be starting them off with sawing me in half.”

Pete received The Carlton Award for outstanding comedy in magic from The Magic Circle in 2017.

Last year he kicked off his Marvels tour, which was extended to spring 2019 because of high demand.

The 39-year-old from Middlesbrough is now preparing to take to the stage across the country to complete 25 shows, playing at venues in Bristol, Chippenham, Fareham and Durham.

Pete will be showing off his talents at the Swindon Arts Centre at Devizes Road on April 15 next year.
