Award-winning magic is back at Blackpool Pleasure Beach!

25 February 2015

Blackpool Pleasure Beach is bringing the magic back for the 2015 season with an award-winning illusionist.

Hot on the heels of his recent visit to the Magician’s Convention in Blackpool, Christian Farla will perform every day throughout July and August at the Home of Magic, the Horseshoe, in the attraction’s world famous Casino Building.

Fresh from wowing the judges on last year’s Britain’s Got Talent, the Dutch magician will take over the Horseshoe everyday from July 3rd until August 30th in a family show which is sure to fascinate.

Described as spectacular and original, Christian has established himself as one of the world’s best illusionists. He has travelled the globe with his unique brand of magic and is known in the USA as a “rock & roll guy with a Las Vegas attitude!”

This summer, he will be bringing his own brand of illusion and magic to the Las Vegas of the north for a show which includes all kinds of magic and variety.

Christian has won the prestigious Merlin award for Magician of the Year as well as numerous other awards, including Champion de Europe and the Merlin award for the Magic Show of the Year.

Born in Rotterdam, Christian began performing tricks when he was just eight years old. By the age of 12, he won the Dutch Junior Championships for stage magic and took the decision to become an illusionist.

Having worked with some of the legends of illusion, including Las Vegas shows with Siegfried and Roy, his show was seen by David Copperfield who was blown away by his act and the two are now friends. They have even exchanged tricks, some of which will be seen at the Horseshoe this summer.

Amanda Thompson OBE, Managing Director of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, said: “We are delighted to welcome the talented Christian Farla to the Horseshoe this summer and we are certain he will be a hit with the audience.

“His unique brand of magic has stunned audiences across the planet and now he is to take Blackpool Pleasure Beach by storm. He was a big hit in front of the judges on Britain’s Got Talent and I’m sure he will get some big reactions from his amazing show.”
