All about Leon Thomson


LEON is an exciting young talent with a huge passion for magic and table tennis. 


LEON became interested in magic after seeing a magician when he was 5 years old. Born and bred in North London, he joined the Young Magicians Club at the age of 10 where he trained hard and developed his magic and performance skills. LEON at 18 years old, successfully became a member of The Magic Circle.


LEON's career took off after his first grand illusion he performed at his favourite table tennis club in Barnet, where to the absolute astonishment of the onlookers, he walked through a locked glass door. The live footage went viral on YouTube and the internet bringing LEON praise from high profile magicians, his school at the time and viewers of the illusion across the world. Since then LEON has also made a table tennis table disappear at the very same club!


LEON has made The Rock of Gibraltar Disappear, making this one of the worlds biggest landmarks ever to vanish Live on a national TV channel, this was part of his own produced half hour TV Magic Travel show special (WATCH IT HERE).

Excitingly because of this LEON was then featured in TV show 'Magic Caught on Camera' for USA's Travel Channel (aired 2020) and also AXN Asia where LEON is in several episodes. The show is still being distributed worldwide, so keep a look out for it!


As well as magic, LEON loves to play table tennis, competing at a very high level and has combined this with his skills as a magician to fascinate audiences at the World Championship of Ping Pong at their half time show. LEON has performed officially for Table Tennis England at the Senior National Table Tennis Championships and for the ITTF (WTT) at the Team World Cup hosted in the London Copperbox Arena as well as the World Table Tennis Championships Budapest 2019 (see videos).

Next time you see LEON, have a game of table tennis, he is a qualified coach after all!


LEON has also performed his own sell-out shows as a solo performer. Doing his act he has been fortunate enough to have presented his magic in a variety of venues such as the N.E.C, House of Lords, Alexandra Palace, Wembley Stadium, The Olympic Park, Trafalgar Square for Chinese New Year and The Magic Circle Theatre and many more for various occasions, his dad does all the music for his shows by the way!


LEON is currently performing his new live show Table Tennis is Magic where LEON performs and tells his story of having two passions in his life and brings them together for a totally unique experience. 

At the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2022 LEON's show was reviewed and given a top rating by FringeReview as Exciting Work 'genius and unique' read the full review here!

LEON's down to earth approach with people and enthusiasm to engage his audience with his fast paced patter has taken him this far.
