We’ve had quite a few emails from fans having various troubles obtaining tickets for the Edinburgh show 7-9th June. As this is the last chance to see the show in Scotland we understand your worry. Our advice is to buy directly from the venue by clicking here – Venue Box Office and we’ve been assured this is the easiest and hassle free way to secure a ticket.

Last year tickets sold out very quickly so we understand your frustration but there is still a good supply left. If you have any more issues please email us and we’ll do our best to help on

Hello there,
my name is Kim and I am 19 years old, I have been a fan of Derren and his work since the very beginning and have longed to get the chance to see him perform live.
Sadly as I am trying to pay my rent, prepare for a college assessment and work a part time job that I dislike I wont be able to afford to go see him. I find this a shame as not only does there seem to be a lack of a student discount but I dislike the fact that the show is inaccessible to those fans on a low income…please consider my plea, and put my point across to Derren if that is even possible. I think I would be a wonderful audience member, with an open mind and genuine intrigue.
Thank you for your time!

– If you are a student and you have an RBS account (most students in Edinburgh tend to) you get 25% off all tickets via you can buy up to 4 as well and make up most of your ticket on the saving 😉 – Phillis

Already got my tickets for the show in Leicester, but I think there’s a mistake in the paragraph.

It says that the Edinburgh show is 7-9th of May, I assume you meant June?

Either way, really looking forward to seeing Derren in Leicester!

Msg from Abeo: Fixed 🙂

kim i believe its the venue n not derren himself who sets the price, im sure derren n his team being the generous n amazin guys they are would not purposely make ticket prices that high that his fans could not go see him, i suggest u kick bottom wid the venue n not the charming derren n his foxy team lol

No, Derren sets the price. I hear he has a humongous Parrot to feed – it’s the size of an elephant and can be rather costly. So remember, when you buy tickets for a Mr Brown show you’re not just investing in an evenings entertainment, you’re also funding the appetite of a giant parrot. So now you know.

By the way: I’m not crazy.

– I wish this were true, unfortunately it is up to the individual venue to decide the price, hence the fluctuation. Some venues like Crawley are subsidised which is why tickets were free to a lot of people. – Phillis

Graeme, as much as I love Derren, it is surely not just the venues that set ticket prices. He does have a taxi dermi habit afterall, and those things ain’t cheap! :p

Will he ever perform shows in New Zealand?

Ps. Just a point, that I disagree with…
“Extraordinary claims, require extraordinary evidence.” -Derren Brown/Richard Dawkins.

No. The term ‘extraordinary’ is subjective.Therefore, this claim is invalid. No objective criterion for the meaning exist. The correct statement is simply that “claims, require evidence.”

Some tickets at Crawley were free?? Pah, not fair! lol

Btw, what you said is indeed true Phillis, hence why when I went to Wimbledon tickets were almost £5 more expensive than for Crawley or Eastbourne.

Worth every half penny and then some. Perhaps another visit to Glasgow next year. Would love to say thank you directly. Wondering how Derren’s visit to the pope is going.

Might Derren perform at Salisbury Playhouse next year or in the coming years? Why can he only play at particular places?

Hi there, just want to say, seen the show on Tuesday the 8th June at Playhouse. What. A. Show. Sure we’re all aware the man in question is hovering around the genius mark. Even though I’ve seen everything Derren has put out there, I was still genuinely astounded by the show, particularly its climax which left me shaking my head at times. Thoroughly enjoyed myself, worth every penny and didn’t expect to laugh so much. Doubt this will fall under the nose of the great man himself, but if you could let him know I think he rocks, i’d appreciate it!
