The Side Show of Wonders


Opening Soon.

Barons Court Theatre, London


A traditional magic and illusion show for the whole family set in the circus, fairgrounds and carnivals of yesteryear.

Master Magician and Showman Richard Leigh has created a mystical playground – a realm of magic, illusion, and intrigue that will transport you to the odd-ball fairgrounds and circus from a wonderful bygone age.

A cavalcade of colourful bewildering delights and magical cameos to entice you to enter the attractions of wonder. Recreations of some of the strange pieces of delectable entertainment from the glorious fairgrounds and circus of our past.

Roll Up, Roll Up, Roll Up

‘Scream as the blade falls on ‘The French Guillotine’.

Hand over your tickets to ‘the ticket inspector with no head, it’s just a body, then enter the exhibit and Gasp at ‘The Living Head’ …. It’s just a head. There is no body.  Yet, both are ALIVE.

Play cards with a ‘ghostly hand’

For the bravest of the brave …. dare you go in to see ‘The Man Eating Chicken’.

And finally a vintage masterpiece of magic from the Fairgrounds, based on the infamous ‘Girl to Gorilla’ side show attraction. Suitably themed for this theatre of magic and entitled ‘Transformation to Cave Monster’ … You will visibly witness a person change into a ghastly hairy monster.


All Side Show attractions are created through magic and illusion. This show is just pure and simple fun, for all ages.


Doors open fifteen minutes before each performance.
The performance duration is 1hr and 15minutes without an interval.
