Magician Ali Cook.

He’s come a long way since he was a fledgling magician as a Harrogate youngster.

Not only is Ali Cook an award-winning illusionist rated by Penn and Teller and a comedy scriptwriter, he’s also now a successful actor on TV (Mr Selfridge) and in movies (The Anomaly co-starring Brian Cox and Epic co-starring Matthew McFayden).

His new tour, The Art Of Astonishment, visits his home town on July 17-18 when he will be playing Harrogate Theatre.
