‘All the magic is astounding but the are two tricks which simply defy belief – one with words, one with numbers. Take the whole family to witness and ponder in amazement, like we did. Do not miss this show’.

FIVE STARS – Jane McDowell for remotegoat.

‘If you were amazed by Darcy Oake’s random audience member numbers matching his credit card digits on ITV earlier tonight, then maybe a visit to The Magic Cavern is due. The longest running magic show in London sees Richard Leigh conjure up an even more mind baffling numbers trick in an impossible finale every Sunday Afternoon at Baron’s Court Theatre, downstairs at The Curtains Up pub.’

Just left the 2pm show and still slightly in shock as to how incredible the magic and Richard is! By far the best afternoon we have had as a family for for a long while. My husband, l and both children (10 and 7) are big fans and we will recommend you to everyone we know! Thank you Richard – you are a wizard!.

The Magic Cavern is a very special place ! Hidden away under a gastro pub in a backstreet of Barrons Court. Very small and very intimate, your right on top of the magic.This is the second performance Ive seen and the magician , Mr Leigh , was amazing. The final trick really blew me away and I am still thinking about it today !! Suitable for children and adults alike, this place is a real hidden gem

This is the second time that I have seen this marvellous magic show, firstly with a friend a few months ago and yesterday with a family group. We are all truly amazed at the skill of the magician – there are tricks to delight and astound the audience. Lots of fun for adults and children alike – highly recommended for a great afternoon out!

If you want to spend a cold Sunday afternoon being entertained, go and see this show. Most of the tricks were very good and the big trick at the end was unbelievable!!! My 12 year old nephew went straight home to research the tiricks. He loved the show.

The show is amazing. The magician’s tricks are so brilliant you’d expect to see this level of skill on television but the atmosphere in the cave-like cellar is far more exciting, as is seeing the magic so close. My children loved the show and so did the adults in our party and we all plan to go back again! Highly recommended. It’s also worth mentioning that the pub is lovely – we stayed on for drinks and a snack after the performance.

 What a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Still trying to work out how the tricks are done and lovely to watch the childrens’ faces being amazed by what’s happening in front of them. A great little atmospheric venue. Absolutely recommend this show! The other plus side is the bar upstairs, lovely food.

I took my son to see this show which fascinated the children as well as adults present in the audience. There was a group of children there celebrating a friend’s birthday and the magician ensured that all the children (and most adults too) were chosen to participate/help. The tricks were mind-boggling (and I have been to many magic shows) and was particularly impressed with the the magician’s talent with numbers. Amazing stuff!
