Giffords Circus is pleased to announce it will be relaxing some, but not all, restrictions at the Circus in line with the new Government guidance.

We will be increasing the seating capacity from 400 to 475, and are delighted to be able to put a limited number of tickets for the shows from 22 July to 16 August 2021 on sale immediately for Stonor Park and Barrington.

Tickets can be bought as usual from our online box office or by calling 01242 691181 from Tuesday, 13 July 2021. The box office is open 10am – 3pm Monday – Friday.

Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided that we will not be returning to our pre-covid capacity with bench seating, we will keep our new bucket style seating to retain a reduced capacity to ensure Circus goers still feel safe.

We will also ask for masks to be worn in the tent to keep our audience, artistes and company safe. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.

For your safety please note our staff will retain masks and we will continue with additional ventilation measures and keep the tent’s sides lifted, as well as providing hand sanitising points.

Our staff are working very hard to help everyone and we appreciate your continued support to keep the show on the road.

We will of course continue to monitor how things are going over the next few weeks and make any future decisions based upon Government advice.
