Giffords Circus is a magical vintage village green circus that tours England from the first days of spring to the first glimpse of winter. It’s a Cotswolds institution, founded in 2000 by Nell and Toti Gifford and to date it has been visited by over one million people. 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.

 

“The most fun you can have in a tent. Genius. Children vomiting with laughter.”

– Hugh Grant

 

The word ¡CARPA! originates from the Spanish word 'tent' and refers to a removable canvas roofed structure used for a travelling theatre, much like a circus. ¡CARPA! was a type of theatre that flourished in the 1920s and 1930s in Mexico and the southwestern states in America.

 

“Our 2022 show will evoke the sights and sounds of rural Mexico. I have directed in that splendid country several times it is a place that I greatly admire. Mexico’s incredible art, music, history, and people will be our inspiration. We are bringing Mexican performers over to join the troupe and with them we will create a show full of skill, humour, turmoil and excitement.”  – Cal McCrystal, Director


You will have time before the afternoon performance to obtain lunch in Henley-on-Thames. 

 

Please Note:  The seating in the tent is traditional tiered seating, up steps. There are limited level access seats, please let us know before booking if you require special assistance. Please also wear suitable footwear and know we can't say until the day how close the coach is able to drop you to the entrance.
