INTRODUCING

"I held the jewel of my childhood up to my eye, and through it I saw ponies and a dressing-up box and a tent, and that was Giffords Circus."
Nell Gifford

“a carnival of fun, silliness and breath-taking skill and enchantment.”

A Spy in the Stalls 2021

"Giffords has an intimacy, charm, innocence that transcends nostalgia." Max Hastings, The Spectator.

Giffords Circus is a vintage village green circus that tours the UK every summer. Giffords is much more than a Circus, it’s a magical nod to old fashioned circus with a glamorous twist. It’s a side-splitting show directed by comedy genius Cal McCrystal that appeals to both young and old, and with a cult following of local farmers, rock stars and A-list celebrities. Step inside the tent into a colourful madcap world of acrobats, jugglers, horses, musicians, dancers and Tweedy the Clown. A production that would rival any West End show.
