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 Richards intricate art.

No audiences at the moment and so I am in the workshops drinking tea and enjoying getting back to the paintbrush.  Take care. X


Until it is safe for our audiences to return then a ‘ghost light’ remains on at ‘The Magic Theatre’




Keeping myself well and truly occupied to good use during Lockdown. Work in progress:

A lifetimes work

A new product which has been a lifetimes work and ambition. The finishing touches are being added during this Lockdown period to a project dear to my heart and in readiness for the return back to performing again as soon as it is safe for our audiences to return.

‘Welcome to the Magic Theatre’

Encapsulating everything GREAT about the British Seaside and the Family End of the Pier theatre concept.

All shows are predominately one man shows and run at either 75 minutes without an interval or 2 x 40 minutes with an interval.

Transforming an existing or unused venue on the end of the pier for seasonal engagements with the full repertoire in an ever changing schedule from the variety of shows below.

Or bringing the ‘seaside’ feel good factor to any venue at any time of the year through the magic of theatre.

Schedule changing, daily, weekly, monthly, seasonally, depending on the length of the run.
