The magical Giffords Circus is back on tour in 2022, with a brand-new show promising to be its best yet.

Described by Cal McCrystal, director of Giffords Circus, as the ‘best show we’ve ever done’, ¡Carpa! brings a taste of Mexico to the UK, with an extravaganza filled with humour, turmoil and excitement – featuring gravity-defying stunts, prancing ponies and stunning costumes.

Taking inspiration from Mexican art, music, history and people, McCrystal described the set as one of the most beautiful he has seen in a tent.

And to make the experience as authentic as possible, the circus has even brought performers over from Mexico.

The tour starts at Giffords Circus headquarters in Stroud on Thursday 14 April 2022, before moving onto locations such as Daylesford, Sudeley Castle, Minchinhampton Common, Blenheim Palace and more.
