A spectacular magic show is set to be the first performance of the year at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena to mark the venue’s post lockdown reopening.

X-treme Magic will be staged May 22 and features death-defying, edge-of-your-seat stunts, grand stage illusions, daredevil escapology and mind-blowing magic in a fast-paced performance.

All necessary safety measures—including social distancing—will be in place.

Master illusionist Richard Cadell will be joined by a full supporting cast of magicians including Pete Firman, Elizabeth Best and Craig Christian, as well as fire artistes, speciality acts and dancers.

Highlights include a motorcycle appearing from nowhere, Russian roulette with sticks of dynamite and escaping a straitjacket while hanging from a burning rope.
