Young & strange - magic, comedy, illusion

Young & strange – magic, comedy, illusion

Young and Strange – Magic, Comedy & Illusion, 15th March, 7pm
Didcot Cornerstone, 8 years – adult
Young and Strange are illusionists who are also great stage show performers. The act is shot through with comedy, making it all round entertainment. The tricks are also very clever, featuring very good sleight of hand and an incredible surprise ending!

They have appeared on ITV1’s prime time magic show Penn and Teller’s ‘Fool Us’, and ITV1’s ‘This Morning’ (see the video clip on our web site). So if you fancy a great night out with the family, ooh-ing and aaah-ing at tricks and surprises that you’d see on prime-time TV then look no further.
