The Fairground Magic Show

The Fairground Magic Show

‘The Magic Cavern’ is London’s long running theatre of magic, intimate and atmospheric.


For this show, Master Magician and Showman Richard Leigh has created an intimate underground mystical playground – a realm of magic, illusion, games and intrigue that will transport you back to the odd-ball fairgrounds of yesteryear.


A show for the whole family. ‘Roll Up, Roll Up, Roll up’


All Side Show attractions and Fairground games are created through magic and illusion. There is plenty of audience participation in this immersive theatre show. Play tradition games such as ‘Hook a Duck’, ‘The Coconut Shy’, ‘Hoopla’ – ‘Odds/Evens to win’, ‘Darts, 21 to win or pin 3 cards to win’ and can you fathom out the puzzle entitled ’13 Angels’ – great fun to bring the family or a group of friends together.


Are you the strongest person in the Fairground. Ring the bell to prove it.


All is not what it seems though. Everything has a magical twist or surprise.


Right down the centre of the fairground called ‘The Midway’ Richard introduces from this strange world a selection of olde fairground Side Shows. A selection from 52 to be precise.


One of those Side Shows is an unusual and rare recreation of a piece of entertainment taken just from an old black and white photo postcard of a fairground from over 90 years ago and has certainly become one of Richards renowned maths extravaganzas entitled ‘The Fastest Mathematician’.
