Would recommend for an enjoyable mind bending fascinating night out. Can’t say anymore sworn to secrecy xx

5.0 star rating Michael from Glasgow,


A master of his craft and a meticulously assembled set. He’s a warm, highly intelligent and most importantly, a caring, showman. Stunning show and worth every little penny. Michael, Red Sox fan.

3.0 star rating Christopher Hope from Bristol,


Saw Derren last night in Bristol. We love him. The first act was great. Then something seemed to go wrong in the second act. A long, inconclusive section of cold-reading amounted to nothing. It was beneath normal Derren standard: therefore, the audience was left thinking “aha, something mind-boggling will come of this”. But it didn’t. I wonder if something went wrong. The finale then felt random and oddly placed. Maybe, in taking more risks, the tricks sometimes don’t work. Hopefully it’ll work for the rest of the shows.

1.0 star rating Joseph Odger from Glasgow,


What a disappointment. Derren managed to muddle through his first act. To be fair, the fault primarily, but not wholly, lay with his selection of audience members. Derren stumbled, from one disaster to another. The second act was repeated over and over until he achieved his mind boggling result. This act culminated in an attempt to show the serial number, of a £10 banknote He failed. The third act was, enough. We left the theatre.
