We are delighted to announce that Andrew Newton the world famous Hypnotist will be making his first visit to Merseyside in nearly 20 years and is scheduled to appear at Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park in November.

"Andrew Newton kept last night's audience laughing from start to finish...What lifted the proceedings was Newton's own personality and approach... slick, highly polished... Newton would have been funny no matter what his act." Yorkshire Evening Post

"Newton… kept us screeching with laughter right to the end. What lifted the proceedings even more was Newton's skill as an entertainer, something that raises him far above all others of his ilk."
