Chris Cross the Magician is bringing his Top of the Bill Magic & Variety Show to Darlington’s Majestic Theatre, 78-80 Bondgate, Darlington DL3 7JT, on Friday 19th October for one night only! Chris promises “fun for all of the family in a proper old-school variety show”.

Expect a splendid evening of entertainment by regional and national stars of Variety. The show is hosted by Newcastle’s favourite magic man Chris Cross the Magician. Chris has performed for the British Royals and many celebrities – including The Hoff, Boy George, Mike Tyson, The Hairy Bikers and Tulisa. He’s appeared on national and international TV including The One Show on BBC1.

The audience will be amazed by magic with doves by The Great Aziz from Glasgow, plus Sideshow Stunts from Iain Jay of Hartlepool, while Charlie Burns from Newcastle will be juggling knives and eating fire. Paul Derek (known as ‘The Birdman of Magic’) will be performing his ‘Animal Magic’ Act.

Artistic director and promoter Chris Cross said: ‘‘I’m really looking forward to staging my show in Darlington. The Majestic Theatre is such a lush venue – it’s a real hidden gem! As soon as I saw the venue I knew I HAD to bring a show there, so that’s what I’m doing!

In addition, The Guinness World-Record-Holding ‘Most Pierced Woman in the World’ will join Chris. Elaine Davidson, from Brazil is one of the Variety Performers on bill. She’ll be walking barefoot on broken glass and lying on a bed of nails!

Chris promises ‘Fun for all of the Family in a Proper Old School Variety Show!

“This is a proper magic and variety show. The kind of show you just don’t, unfortunately, see anywhere anymore! There are so many wonderfully skilled and exceptionally talented performers around and they really do deserve to be seen.”
