Top star Paul set for Hippodrome stage

Paul Daniels
Paul Daniels

He’s one of the most famous names in magic - and Paul Daniels will be appearing at Todmorden’s Hippodrome Theatre, Halifax Road, in May.

The star, who has headlined at venues in the West End, Las Vegas and Broadway, will be in Todmorden for one night only, on May 30.

From the moment he burst onto the ITV network, and later switched to the BBC, his magic shows topped the ratings.

His creative genius enabled him to produce consistently stunning shows, never rivalled in spectacle, covering the full range of the world of entertainment magic, from small, ‘close-up’ effects,

to enormous outside broadcast illusions. Add to that a unique comedy style and you have a complete entertainer and one of the funniest men in show business.

In 1983 Paul was presented with the prestigious ‘Magician of the Year’ Award by the Hollywood Academy of Magical Arts before a star-studded audience in Los Angeles, the first magician from outside the USA to receive the award.

He is the only magician in the history of the London Magic Circle to receive all three of its top awards.

Paul and his wife - and stage partner - Debbie McGhee now bring their Intimate Magic show to the Hippodrome stage.
