Magic duo to feature at Isle of Arts

Popular and award-winning magic pairing Barry and Stuart are set to perform at this year's Isle of Arts Festival.

Following their triumph at the World Magic Awards, with the duo taking home the comedy prize, and the recent success of their BBC television show The Magicians, Barry and Stuart will be performing their Show and Tell magic show for live audiences on April 19th in Ventnor.

"First, they will entertain you with their trademark innovative tricks and devious illusions that have won praise from the likes of Derren Brown," Isle of Arts spokeswoman Gillian Jenner told the Isle of Wight County Press.

"In the second half, be prepared to be amazed as they exclusively reveal all the secrets behind the magic."

The night does not stop there though, as following the magic, former drug dealer turned best-selling author Howard Marks will be taking to the stage to discuss his less than usual life story.

Having spent seven years in a US federal penitentiary and having worked for both the British and US secret services in the past, his journey is one that has most definitely been less tread.

Running from April 19th to 21st, Isle of Arts will also see varied performances from a range of acts, including comedian Alan Davies, Ska band The Skatatonics, jazz guitarist Femi Temowo and journalist and broadcaster Sarfraz Manzoor.

Earlier this month, music lovers may also have been pleased to learn Rizzle Kicks were added to the burgeoning line-up of the Isle of Wight Festival, with the hip-hop duo set to perform on the Friday night (June 14th) on the Big Top stage.

Other acts that will be headlining the festival's many stages during the course of the weekend include Sub Focus, Blondie, Happy Mondays, Bon Jovi, the Killers, Example +DJ Wire, Damian Lazarus, Jaguar Skills and the Stone Roses.

It promises to be an event to remember and tickets are still available, starting from £75 for an adult day entry, up to £185 for a weekend camping pass.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801548229-ADNFCR
