Set in the Fairground and carnivals of yesteryear. A traditional magic show for the whole family. Created and presented by magician and showman Richard Leigh.
A creative playground, the Barons Court Theatre in London is transformed into an underground fairground of games and attractions. All the games you remember are there for all to play, and yet every game, every attraction has some mind blowing magic themed around it.
You can play ‘Hook a Duck’, Darts, ‘Score 21 to win’, ‘The Coconut Shy’ ‘The Strength Test’, ‘3 balls in to win’.
And right down the centre of the fairground called the midway, Richard introduces a selection of olde fairground Side Shows.
One of those Side Shows is an unusual and rare recreation from an old black and white photo postcard of a fairground from over 90 years ago and is certainly one of Richards renowned maths extravaganzas entitled ‘The Fastest Mathematician’.
You choose the numbers, time and time again, BIG SUMS, and he’ll give you the total before you can get into your calculator mode.
This effect is wonderfully entertaining and has got to be seen to be appreciated. It’s incredibly quick.
