Don’t miss a trick as magician takes to Ripley streets
A TV magician will mystify Ripley shoppers on Friday morning (23 June) as part of a campaign to share money-saving tips.
Britain’s Got Talent star Luca Gallone, who was dubbed ‘the next Dynamo’ by judge Amanda Holden in 2015, will take to Ripley market to entertain passers-by.
The performance is part of the magician’s work with Futures Housing Group, which is filming the tricks to be used in an advertising campaign to promote money management advice.
Lynn Aston, Director of Customer Services at Futures, said: “We’re delighted that Luca has agreed to help us to spread a serious but engaging message that we are here to help our customers with financial worries.
“Universal credit isn’t an illusion, and we have already seen an impact for our customers in areas where it has been rolled out, so the advice and support offered by our award-winning money advice team is often vital.”
The magician will perform close-up magic for Ripley shoppers and market traders between 9.30am and 12pm.
Luca, 21, said: “It’s fantastic to be a part of this project. Futures Housing Group has got a message to deliver to its customers and magic is a great metaphor to deliver this and wow people at the same time.”
The video will be shared later in the year, along with money-saving tips and budgeting advice.
