You won’t believe your eyes as you witness the seemingly impossible. Wherever you sit in this atmospheric venue, you are only a few feet away from the magic which happens literally under your very eyes.

Created and Presented by the beguiling magician and showman Richard Leigh

A traditional show of mystery from the golden age of magic. 


What the press say

‘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’. - 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. - The Lost Review – Nic Bennett


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. - Patrick

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! - Sarah

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. - Hilary

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. - Ruth

 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. - Angelina

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! - Shirlene






This show is interactive and suitable for all the family. (6 years to 106)

The theatre has about 60 seats that surround the stage on three sides. The playing area is an intimatel square surrounded by archways on the three sides where the audience sits. Sometimes the directors use the audience space as playing area (for example in their production of Antigone, the chorus sat in the front row of the audience. The theatre has a very intimate feel. You can look the actors right in the eye (in fact one winked at me during a show recently).

The artistic director at Barons Court is Ron Phillips. He produces about 70% classics and 30% new works. His focus in selecting productions is plays that will entertain (rather than focusing on a particular genre).

The Curtains Up pub is a fairly upscale place that can get quite packed on the weekends. It is also an enjoyable place to grab an ale or a meal before the show (they have a restaurant in the back and you can book a table by ringing 020 7386 7543 ).
