Stars of BBC show The Magicians, Barry and Stuart, will perform on the Isle of Wight as part of the Isle of Arts Festival.
AWARD-winning magic act Barry and Stuart, of the BBC show The Magicians, will perform on the opening night of this year's Isle of Arts festival, organisers have announced.
The pair, who scooped the World Magic Awards comedy prize, will perform their Show and Tell magic show on Friday, April 19.
"First, they will entertain you with their their trademark innovative tricks and devious illusions that have won praise from the likes of Derren Brown.
"In the second half, be prepared to be amazed as they exclusively reveal all the secrets behind the magic," said Isle of Arts spokeswoman Gillian Jenner.
"Later that night, former drug dealer turned best-selling author Howard Marks will talk to an audience about his rollercoaster lifestyle.
"To say that Howard has taken a different route to most of us would be an understatement. He has worked with the British secret services, the CIA and the Mafia.
"He was once busted by the American Drug Enforcement Agency and subsequently spent seven years in one of the USA's toughest federal penitentiaries," said Gillian.
