Chepstow Activity Centre to feature on BBC’s The Magicians.

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

The National Diving & Activity Centre to feature on BBC’s The Magicians.

We recently closed the site for a day to allow the team from the BBC’s the Magicians show to carry out some filming for their upcoming TV series.

The Magicians returns to BBC One with a show-stopping new live format and viewer vote. Presented by Darren McMullen, the shows feature magicians Barry and Stuart, World Champion of Magic Latimer and comedy magician Pete Firman paired with stars from your favourite TV Shows.

With more daring, dangerous and mind-blowing magic than ever before, each act will perform four tricks – and two will be live, so anything could happen. Once all three acts have performed, viewers get to vote for their favourite, with the losing team having to face a terrifying live forfeit. Who will it be?

We’re pleased to announce that the National Diving & Activity Centre will feature on the Second episode of the series on Saturday 14th January 2012 at 6:30pm.

We can’t give anything away, but it would be well worth watching!
