All magic props, illusions, backdrops and scenic elements below have been designed, created, built and painted by hand by Richard Leigh over the last thirty two years.

 This extensive collection of hand made props are very unusual, highly decorative and themed around the titles of the 8 magical productions Richard presents in an ever changing programme throughout each year at ‘The Magic Theatre’ (Currently in residence at the Barons Court Theatre in London)

Note to self: ‘Don’t put the brush in the mug of tea, Richard’
