Dean Williamson, who grew up in St Annes, has opened the book on the Factory of Magic, to six artistes in a bid to better promote those working in magical arts.

From close-up magic, cards, stage illusion to mind reading and wizardry Dean has brought together some of the UK's biggest talents for the agency, which he hopes will become a real showcase for the industry.

Dean, whose own specialism is mentalism, has hand picked the performers from the magical community to join him on the new venture. On the books is his friend a fellow performer Rick Green, who will perform with him in the States in 2021.

Dean, who now lives in Salford, said : "It was actually in Lockdown while Rick and I were doing our virtual magic shows online and building all these new connections I had this idea.

"The magical community is a special one but has never really had its own platform in the entertainments industry - artists aren't nurtured the way they should be. This is a way of building very bespoke events for people. It also allows me to utilise the consultancy skills I had built in my career.

"It was a no brainer. The talent is extraordinary, we are all incredibly passionate about magic and we are all so excited about getting out and performing again.

"The agency allows us to showcase our work across a wider platform and ultimately help people create a magical event and make memories too.
