Giffords Circus has announced the death of its co-founder, Nell Gifford, after a long battle with cancer.
Nell was described as a ‘creative genius’ by her circus family, and leaves behind twins, Cecil and Red, who will continue to be ‘part of the Giffords Circus DNA.’
In 2020 Giffords will celebrate its 20th anniversary with its production named The Hooley, which will also celebrate Nell’s incredible life.
A statement from Giffords Circus said: ‘We know many tears will be falling as Nell touched so many hearts. Her vision for Giffords Circus was to bring happiness, imagination and enliven people’s souls.
‘Giffords Circus shall continue to do just that. Whilst the world is a dimmer place today, Nell will continue to live through the Circus.’
