HE impressed the nation during last year’s Britain’s Got Talent, and now he is set to entertain a more local audience.

Magician Ben Hart was a big hit as he made the final of the hit talent show, receiving rave reviews from the celebrity judges, particularly Simon Cowell and David Walliams.

He has remained in the media spotlight ever since, and is embarking on his debut solo tour.

As part of that, he will perform at Hexham’s Queen’s Hall on Sunday, February 9 at 7.30pm.

During Britain’s Got Talent, Ben was described by David Walliams as ‘the living embodiment of magic’, using simple props and objects, while reading the minds of the audience.

His solo show promises to conjure a show that shines a light on magic, life and people’s imaginations.

Limited tickets remain for his show and can be purchased at the Queen’s Hall Box Office at www.queenshall.co.uk.
