Support Giffords Circus

Gift Now

Giffords Circus has pushed the boundaries of British circus by combining high production value with creative flair and attention to detail. The unique artform of the circus brings high quality artistic production to rural communities across the Cotswolds, the South West and London, a travelling show that appears on a village green as if by magic.

Most of our income comes from ticket sales and as with so many in the arts and entertainments industry Covid-19 hit us hard. In 2020 and 2021 we were pleased to receive funding from the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund (CRF) to help us recover, but still our resources are diminished as a result of a prolonged lockdown and reduced seating capacity due to social distancing measures.

Many people have asked how they can support us over and above buying tickets and shopping in the Giffords Circus shop, so we have now added the ability to make a ‘gift’ here on our website.

Your gifts, however small, are very welcome and will enable Giffords Circus to not only invest further in creativity and explore ways in which to reach new audiences but to support dependent crafts and artists such as sign writers and costume makers.

We are incredibly grateful for the people who have offered to donate their tickets, or buy a seat left empty due to social distancing or just send us a donation, your thoughts, words and support are truly appreciated beyond measure.

Long live Giffords Circus!
