Chris Cross Says: ”It really will be rather special to perform with Paul’s son. I performed in the region with my late hero, Paul Daniels and we even had a small tour planned together, but he sadly passed away before we went out on the road with our show. Performing with Martin is the nearest I’ll now ever get to performing with his Dad – the Daniels torch of Magic has been passed over to Martin now and it’s just as well he’s good – and a funny magician, too! This is the first show we have staged together and we are both really excited to entertain all of the magic fans in the North East!”
