A SHOW which has been taking Blackpool by storm is coming home to Horwich on Friday.

And some lucky people will get the chance to see it for free, with the organisers giving away tickets to local causes.

Mr Zooka will be at Horwich Leisure Centre tonight after appearing at Blackpool Tower last summer.

The magician will perform an extravaganza of tricks, with extra entertainment from dance group, Spectrum, of Horwich, and singer Jenson Bright, of Bury.

Mike Stuart, the man behind Mr Zooka, said: “This year was my first summer season in Blackpool Tower and it was a roaring success.

“I thought it would be really great to bring the show back to my home town for Christmas.”

The 30-year-old was born and brought up in Horwich. He attended Rivington and Blackrod High School.

Mr Stuart, who now lives in Lostock, has given away about 120 tickets, including to Royal Bolton Hospital’s outpatients department, Bolton Lads and Girls Club, Social Service Horwich and Barnardos.

Two shows are taking place at 5pm and 7pm, with room for 250 people to attend each performance.

Tickets, priced at £2, are available on the door.
