November's You Must Be Stoking is fast approaching, and we've got a
fantastic selection of top-rated acts, including the welcome return of
magician Pete Firman, who almost literally blew the roof off the last
time he was with us, and no doubt will do again! A great night's
entertainment for just £7 in advance (+70p booking fee - visit or £9 on the door.


Pete Firman is regarded as a uniquely gifted magic entertainer,
gleefully injecting the genre with his anarchic, off-beat humour and
dazzling array of skills. He starred as cheeky northerner 'Tufty' in
Five's anarchic, hip magic show Monkey Magic, and is re-defining the
rules of magic entertainment. Since then he has made numerous series
for British television, most recently Secret World of Magic for Sky
