Derren Brown will embark on a brand new UK tour in 2020.

Entitled Showman, the piece is Brown's first new stage tour in five years. The tour will kick off in Dartford in March 2020, before visiting Ipswich, Bournemouth, Plymouth, Milton Keynes, Southend-on-Sea, Norwich, Leeds, Hull, Oxford, Glasgow, Salford, Sheffield, Wolverhampton and Canterbury.

The magician, who has received more Olivier nominations and wins than any other one-man show in theatre history (picking up two awards for 2006's Something Wicked This Way Comes and 2012's Svengali), has performed every year since 2003 and been seen by over 1.5 million people.

Brown teased: "All I can reveal is that the show will ultimately be about you, the audience member, because that's what I find most interesting. There are some places I'd like to take the audience where we haven't been before, and I always aim to have it deliver more than you'd expect. I'm excited to be at the starting point of that process. Getting it on the road will be my favourite part of the year."
