Promising ‘magic, mystery and mischief’, Giffords Circus is set to get its new show The Hooley back on the road this May 2021.
The Hooley was due to open in 2020 but was postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Providing each stage of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown is successful, Giffords Circus plans to welcome guests back to the big top from Wednesday 19 May 2021.
Gloucestershire venues on The Hooley tour include Fennells Farm near Stroud, Daylesford Organic Farm, Frampton-on-Severn, Minchinhampton Common, Stratton Meadows in Cirencester and Sudeley Castle near Cheltenham – with the show also heading to Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and London.
The show was created by the late Nell Gifford and director Cal McCrystal and stars Gloucestershire’s favourite entertainer, Tweedy the Clown, alongside fairies, leprachauns, trolls and horses.
Travelling restaurant Circus Sauce will also be open on selected dates, offering a three-course post-show feast using locally sourced produce, as well as a new licensed bar.
Tickets for The Hooley cost from £15 for adults or from £10 for children aged three or above. Existing ticket holders whose show is being rescheduled will be able to exchange their tickets to an alternative date.
