ALL ABOUT LEON
LEON THOMSON is an exciting young talent with a passion for magic, mind tricks and table tennis. LEON has been entertaining his audiences close-up, on stage and on screen for well over a decade as a professional performer!
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 'LEON's Gibraltar Special'.
Excitingly because of this LEON was then featured in TV show 'Magic Caught on Camera' worldwide (aired 2020) where LEON is in several episodes.
The show is still being distributed worldwide, so keep a look out for it!
