Can you wrestle tigers, read minds, see through walls and burn people with your laser eyes?

That’s the twisted - and somewhat unrealistic - dream of Dr Matt Pritchard, whose comedy magic show ‘6% Superhuman’ comes to the Pavilion Arts Centre on Saturday May 4 as part of the venue’s Studio Season.

Featuring an obsessed quest of award-winning magic, multimedia and subversive storytelling, the show will explore the sneaky science behind superhero powers. What’s fact, what’s fiction and what’s feasible in the future?

Previous shows at the Buxton Fringe Festival have proved a huge hit with audiences of all ages and regularly sell out. The show’s magical creator Dr Matt Pritchard, who grew up in Buxton and is an Associate of the Inner Magic Circle, is excited to be returning to the area.

‘6% Superhuman’ will be performed at the Pavilion Arts Centre Studio on May 4 at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £6.50 (£5.50 concessions, are available at or by calling 0845 127 2190.
