MAGIC is on its way to the LBT which prom­ises to be a night to re­mem­ber.

Hud­der­s­field ma­gi­cian Michael Jor­dan, who per­forms with wife Tam­syn un­der the name High Jinx, brings an in­ter­na­tional line-up of other mag­i­cal acts.

These in­clude Euro­pean Cham­pion of Magic 2011 and three times Grand Prix win­ner at the Na­tional Cham­pi­onships of Magic, Dion, with his star­tling blend of magic and dance.

Magic Cir­cle Stage Ma­gi­cian of the Year John Archer will be bring­ing his unique rou­tine of com­edy and trick­ery which is much loved by au­di­ences and his peers.

All the way from Rus­sia, Va­lerie Murzak will be per­form­ing her im­pres­sive Mir­ror Ball Act from the pro­duc­ers of the Olivier Award win­ning La Soiree.

Michael comes from Scapegoat Hill and is a former Magic Cir­cle Young Ma­gi­cian of the Year.

He launched High Jinx in 2004 but hit the head­lines when he ap­peared on ITV’s Penn and Teller Fool Us and went on to tour the­atres and parks around the UK, Europe and Amer­ica be­fore set­tling down to the three-year stint with his own show in Black­pool.

The Ex­am­iner re­viewed his show at the LBT in Fe­bru­ary 2015 and said: “Michael’s pat­ter is packed with ad-libs and hu­mour, gets the au­di­ence in­volved both on stage and off it and he comes across as a con­sum­mate fam­ily en­ter­tainer. High qual­ity en­ter­tain­ment and prob­a­bly the best show I’ve seen at the LBT.”

The Night of In­ter­na­tional Va­ri­ety is at the LBT on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 21 at 7.30pm.

Tick­ets are priced at £18 with chil­dren un­der 16 £12.

Kirklees Pass­port hold­ers £3 off and can be booked via the Box Of­fice on 01484 430528 or on­line at www.thelbt.org

Ox­jam will hit at least six venues in the town next week, with more than 50 bands play­ing. It is part of the na­tion­wide fes­ti­val or­gan­ised by vol­un­teers in aid of Ox­fam.

Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of last year’s fes­ti­val, it is re­turn­ing on Oc­to­ber 14 with more lo­cal, un­signed bands.
