Richard Leigh 

Richard Leigh is a magician and creator of themed magic shows, talks, side shows and magical exhibitions for theatre and circus on land and at sea, using his skills as an artist, sculptor and bespoke prop maker to create some highly original work.

As an artist Richard paints with themes of the British Seaside which includes fairgrounds, end of the pier theatres, promenades and circuses of yesteryear. 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 has presented his magic for over 37 years, with the first 15 years working worldwide on cruise ships, cabaret, and end of the pier summer seasons. Then between 2000 and 2020 in residency in two London theatres with ‘The Magic Cavern’ and ‘Welcome to the Magic Theatre’ projects.
