Richard Leigh

Richard Leigh is a magician and creator of theatrical magic shows, using his skills as an artist, sculpter and bespoke prop maker to create some highly original work.

As an artist Richard paints with themes of the below production titles. All promotion for all shows are hand painted pieces of work. All scenic cloths, set and  props are canvasses for Richard’s intricate art.

Richard presents his magic creations, art and shows in a ‘Theatre of Magic’ scenario by leasing or renting a theatre or space and transforming it into a performing house for all of his family shows.

The venues used and sought after are always intimate and atmospheric, seating capacity between 30 and 70 guests per performance. The stage area required far surpasses the space for the audience, which allows his guests to really enjoy an immersive magical theatre show.

By becoming the magician in residence Richard schedules and promotes his ever increasing number of 80 minute family shows into his season/s. This has been the pattern of self promoted work for the past 20 years. A wonderful ticket to buy into.


2020. No audiences at the moment and so Richard is in the workshops drinking tea whilst enjoying getting back to the paintbrush and the woodwork hand tools, creating new magic and looking forward to a new chapter of performances as a project to find the walls to transform into the next ‘Theatre of Magic’ begins.
