Master illusionist Derren Brown has been spotted sipping coffee and cocktails at two popular Norwich spots.

The illusionist, painter and author has been performing at the Theatre Royal this week, with shows from March 21 to 25.

Brown was seen enjoying a cappuccino and a pastry at Strangers Coffee, one of his self-proclaimed favourite haunts.

He was also seen visiting the "extraordinary" cocktail bar Arboretum.

He posted on Instagram: "We found ourselves in an extraordinary cocktail bar at Arboretum in Norwich late last night.

"Victorian cocktails, not the American type, which turn out to be quite a different thing.

"We gave them inspiring mood-words (Ballet, Interfering, Autopsy) and they fashioned extraordinary delights. Thank you so much for the treats."

Brown had to reschedule his show several times due to lockdown and then he caught Covid.

In 2018, Brown learned how to make his favourite blend, Rocko Mountain, with a spot of barista training from Strangers' director Alex Sargeant.
