The Spooky Magic Theatre

For the October Half Term Holidays 2018

Here at the Magic Theatre, we LOVE this time of the year, we wish it was Hallowe’en all the year round. But for a few days only which is definitely a great treat for the Half Term Holidays, we celebrate Hallowe’en big style and turn our little theatre into ‘The Spooky Magic Theatre’.

Lets do it all over again in 2018. I’ll try and squeeze in a few more performances this year.

Tickets on sale soon …. of course …..



Families and friends gather in the dimly lit, creaky and kooky magic theatre to tell ‘Ghost Stories’. Your storyteller and host is magician Richard Leigh.

Traditional Halowe’en party games are played, all with a magical twist. Great fun providing you don’t mind hearing things that go bump in the night and you don’t mind seeing ghosts.

Tricks and Treats galore. Bring a good pair of lungs to scream and be amazed.


Chains will rattle as a ghostly hand plays cards with the magician.


For some, who dare to look at their reflection in the mirror, ghostly apparitions are strong.



And for those who are really brave enough to play the magical game traditionally played at Hallowe’en called TRICK OR TREAT and risk the forfeit of the trapdoor of Doom, then please let the ghostly theatre manager at the box office know when you arrive.



Come on in and tell us a ghost story.

Below is a picture of one of my favourite moments from presenting this show over the years. The magical outcome from a ghost story told by a very imaginative   audience member and eerily scratched on paper by a spirit, a ghost.


The finale is strange. A ghostly head which is alive. An old fairground sideshow called ‘The Living Head’ – you will witness and can virtually touch, you are that close, a head without a body, and yet it’s alive, very alive. Only at ‘The Magic Theatre’ is this a normal days work.


Each show is one hour and fifteen minutes without an interval.

Doors creak open 15 minutes before each performance.

Don’t be scared now. This is a fun show presented by a great storyteller and magician. Richard Leigh.

Audience Reviews

Superb outing with friend’s kids (8 and 10) and one hour and a half went so quickly as kids’ participation as well as adults added to the value of proactive matine performace and the kids and I enjoyed it immensely, and they couldn’t believe when I told them it lasted almost 1 hr and a half – time went so quickly and enjoyable too – we concluded. It was the first time I went to this theatre and no doubt will repeat the visit. Many thanks for the outstanding entertainment 10/10!

My 12 year old grandsons give this show 5 stars. “One of the best shows I’ve ever seen”. The show is very interactive and had many tricks that kept everyone (even the adults) wondering. As the theatre is very small everyone had a chance to participate in the action. Great fun for all the kids.

A great show, enjoyed equally by me and my daughter (7).
As the title says – it’s spooky rather than scary – so safe for ages.
The tricks will baffle the young and old alike and there’s just the right amount of audience participation.
Another lovely show in this tiny by atmospheric venue.

If you would like to nominate a person within your group or family to help with one of the effects, or would simply like a birthday mentioned, just tell the magician who is presenting magic as you take your seats or the box office manager. This performance is interactive but in no way embarrassing.

These very popular shows sell out fast. Get your tickets before they are all gone.

‘Scream if you want to go faster’ …. Welcome to the fun fear.
