Corrie McGuire Management said audiences can expect “Pete’s trademark blend of laugh-out-loud comedy and jaw-dropping magic”.

It added: “This hour is Pete’s most unique yet and proves why he is one of the Festival's most popular performers.”

Mr Firman has numerous television appearances under his belt, including ITV's Tonight at the London Palladium, The Next Great Magician, Tommy Cooper Forever, BBC One's Let’s Sing & Dance for Comic Relief, The John Bishop Show, The Magicians and The Sarah Millican Television Programme.

He presents the gameshow Don't Unleash The Beast for CITV and has just completed filming on the second season of Good Omens, which is due to air early 2023 on Amazon Prime.

In 2017, Mr Firman was presented with The Carlton Award for outstanding comedy in magic by the world-famous Magic Circle, its first non-member of the prestigious society to receive it in its 100-plus year history.
