Wooed by Angelina Jolie, praised by the Queen, world class magician and mind-reader Chris Dugdale returns by popular demand to Riverside Studios for three weeks this autumn (31st August - 19th September) with his critically acclaimed, ground-breaking magic show, "Chris Dugdale: An Evening of Magic and Mindreading". 

Chris Dugdale is one of the UK's very best magicians. He has travelled all over the world astonishing thousands of people with his extraordinary magic. Celebrities around the globe have been captivated by his dexterity, from Angelina Jolie to Simon Cowell, Sir Richard Branson to Jimmy Page, Shaun Williamson to Roger Moore, Ulrika Jonsson to Keith Floyd.

Chris' last appearances at Riverside Studios in October were rapturously received by audiences and critics alike. Roger Foss on LBC 97.3 declared: "Chris Dugdale is amazing. So amazing in fact that the applause was almost drowned by the sounds of jaws dropping. He's not just a mind-reader, he's a mindboggler." Alistair Smith of The Stage newspaper said that the show was: "Slickly staged with some nice theatrical touches and some of the most impressive sleight of hand magic I've seen."

Have you ever wondered how somebody can be in two places at one time? Have you ever doubted the evidence of your own eyes? In an empowering journey through the mind of a consummate showman and magician, Chris fuses live and recorded video, cutting edge technology with close-up magic, mind-reading and theatrical artistry to create an amazing interactive spectacle that will leave you bewitched and perplexed.

By exploring the 6th sense, Chris takes his audience on a thought-provoking and dream-like journey through which they appear to have witnessed the seemingly impossible. Chris explains: "I have spent my whole life dreaming up some of these effects, blending classical magic with modern deception. I want people to go out completely stunned and thoroughly entertained".

Director Tony Middleton adds: "The tricks that Chris has invented himself have fooled other magicians, and earned him an unparalleled reputation within the magic world. Audiences walk away feeling that they have had a great all round modern experience of magic - dynamic in its theatricality, but also just inches away from them."
