Giffords Circus tour begins...


oh happy days, the circus season has started once more! Giffords Circus is a small touring 1930s village green circus that tours the Cotswolds each year between May and September. This year the circus is based on the novel 'War and Peace' with original score and live 13 piece band. 


We were delighted to go yesterday and see some familiar faces back this year such as Bibi and Bichu the jugglers and the fantastic Tweedy the clown. It's fast paced and fun filled with some tender touches in between, beautiful singing, a falcon, doves and a goose called Brian. 


The performers are so talented, we just marveled and gasped at their acts! Hopefully we'll go again over the summer as once is never enough!
