Giffords Circus was started in 2000 by Nell and Toti Gifford. They wanted to create a small traditional circus company that would bring the magic of circus back to British audiences. Since then the pair have been touring with a troupe of performance artists, musicians, horses and wagons producing unique circus shows and experience, loved by all the family, young and old. Giffords Circus tours the Cotswolds and London from May to September. To find out more visit

Giffords Circus

2017 TOUR

Any Port in a Storm – the 2017 Baroque inspired Giffords Circus show. Another great international team including a Cuban troupe, a Hungarian Csikos rider and a Ukrainian flyer. Household favourite Tweedy returns to run amok alongside our fabulous Giffords Circus band.
A roaring tempest of a show.

Circus Sauce is our unique sixty seat travelling restaurant that is part of the circus on tour. Every evening, after the show, we serve a starlit sumptuous dinner and some sunday lunches - check for dates. The food served in the restaurant is of high quality, and we always strive to use fresh, seasonal and local ingredients - View details
