The entrepreneurial pair behind Aberdeen-based presentation and magic firm Fifth Dimension have landed a spot on a Baltic cruise in the latest of a string of international engagements.

Ivor Smith and Jeff Burns will perform aboard the MV Columbus next week for the Legends of Magic cruise.

They will be joining internationally-renowned magicians and television personalities to entertain 1,700 passengers in a series of evening gala shows during the 13-day voyage.

Recent jobs for the pair, who have twice performed at the legendary Magic Castle in Hollywood, include a headline act in Las Vegas.

They are also to appear in the International Stars of Magic and Variety show at a magicians’ convention in Southport next month.

Mr Smith said: “We’re delighted to be performing on the Legends of Magic cruise and to work alongside such respected magicians.

“We’ve put a lot of time into the development of our act and can’t wait to share it with the Columbus passengers.”

The ship will cruise around the Baltic, stopping off at locations including St Petersburg, Tallinn, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Helsinki.
