Magicking smoking away

A YOUNG magician from Dumfries is looking for volunteers who want to stop smoking by hypnosis.

Student Brandon Barrett, 17, has a background in stage magic and wants to make the smoking habits of five Dumfries and Galloway residents disappear.

Forget smoke and mirrors, Brandon, who has performed to almost 60,000 people world wide, will use just his powers of hypnotism.

The teen discovered his passion at the young age of five, when he was given a magic kit as a Christmas gift. And since leaving school last year he has developed his skills to create a career as a comedy mind reader and hypnotist.

The last year has been his most successful yet, with selling out Dumfries Theatre Royal and then jetting off to Salou to perform over 380 shows over the summer season.

Anyone wishing to take part should email [email protected] to be in with a chance of becoming a non-smoker.
