ONE of the UK's favourite magicians will be bringing his box of tricks to Barnsley next year.

Paul Daniels and his assistant and wife Debbie McGee will bring 'The First Farewell Tour', their new show of tricks, comedy and illusion to The Lamproom on February 9.

Paul has become one of the country's most well-known magicians and is the only one to receive all the top awards of the London Magic Circle.

He was spotted in 1970 by a producer and hosted The Paul Daniels Show with future wife Debbie for 15 years.

He has entertained everyone from Princes William and Harry to the Sultan of Oman to John Major and more recently has appeared on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, Strictly Come Dancing and alongside Debbie on Wife Swap and The X Factor: Battle of the Stars.

Paul performed 'It's Magic' at the Prince of Wales Theatre in the West End, one of the longest-running magic shows ever staged in London.

He has also designed special effects for stage and screen, including Cats and Phantom of the Opera.
