Giffords Circus – My Beautiful Circus

Event ended

Editor's Choice

Celebrating the birth of the extraordinary art form, Giffords' highly anticipated 2018 tour, My Beautiful Circus, is set to storm venues across Gloucestershire, the Cotswolds and beyond, with Tweedy the Clown and a cast of incredible performers geared up for the magnificent show.

Roll up, roll up and run away with the circus… set to delight its loyal – and ever-increasing – army of fans, Giffords’ 2018 summer tour promises another spectacular show from the acclaimed troupe, visiting venues across the county and beyond.

Featuring awe-inspiring performances, live music, and a dose of comedy from everyone’s favourite clown, Tweedy, this summer’s show will be a celebration of the birth of circus, which occurred near Westminster Bridge in London in 1768.

Directed once again by the award-winning Cal McCrystal, My Beautiful Circus is sure to exceed expectations during a tour that’s become something of a Cotswold institution, with audiences able to expect gravity-defying, jaw-dropping, laugh-out-loud entertainment.

What’s more, to complete the Giffords experience, there’s the chance to book a delicious three-course meal in its characterful travelling restaurant, Circus Sauce. Championing local and seasonal produce, Circus Sauce offers a menu which changes weekly, serving hearty British classics within a unique setting.

SoGlos has rounded up details of the Gloucestershire and Cotswold performances below, with full details available by visiting giffordscircus.com directly.
