Derren Brown's Showman tour comes to the Opera House for two nights from October 1.

“It’s a mixture, always. The songs Stand Beside Me, I Just Want To Dance With You, Our House Is A Home, I Need You... All these songs I sing at every show and never take them out or tire of them.

“I do love Blackpool as a place for performing. I’ve been coming for many, many years. It has a very special charm about it and the theatres are just fabulous. The Opera House has such a lovely atmosphere and has such history with it.”

Illusionist Derren Brown is also back with ‘Showman’ and has two nights in the resort on October 1 and 2.
