A magic show that’s billed as the ‘most dangerous’ in the world is coming to Aylesbury Waterside Theatre on Sunday, October 16.

Forget rabbits-out-of-a-hat – X-TREME MAGIC is described as a modern-day spectacle of magic and illusion designed to shock and thrill with death-defying, edge-of-your-seat stunts, sensational stage illusions and daredevil escapology.

Created in Las Vegas and rehearsed over two years, the brand new show features an all-star cast.

Audiences will be as astonished as they are terrified as they watch motorcycles appear from nowhere, eattempted escapes from a straitjacket whilst hung from a burning rope and Russian roulette played with sticks of dynamite. You might just want to bring a cushion to hide behind!

Star of the show Richard Cadell said: “Forget card tricks and hankies - this is thrilling magic the scale of which has never been seen in the UK before.

Asked for his favourite stunt in the show, he said: "Without doubt the mid-air vanishing motorbike.
