Giffords Circus 2024 Avalon

“Giffords Circus is so much more than a circus” said Cal McCrystal, Director. “To come to Giffords is to immerse yourself in another world and escape everyday life for a few blissful hours. Our astonishing mix of thrills, skills, adventure, romance, theatrics and hilarity will change all your preconceptions of traditional circus. You will fall in love with our travelling world of acrobats, clowns, magicians, jugglers, vintage wagons, and entrancing music.”

AVALON is a show that will immerse the audience in a colourful medieval world of pageantry and Arthurian legend, with lavish costumes, opulent set, and a live band all conjured up by award winning international acclaimed performance designer takis, whose innovative and diverse body of work encompasses West End and leading UK theatre.

Please note that we will be filming all three shows on Saturday 18th May. You may appear as a face in the audience. If you would not like to appear on camara, we advise you choose another day.

Giffords Circus first visited Sudeley Castle in 2014 with Greek tragedy ‘The Thunders’ and we had such a warm reception we have returned every year. Sudeley Castle is situated in the historic town of Winchcombe, in a bowl-shaped valley surrounded by rolling Cotswold hills. The Castle’s 1,200 acre estate is certainly one of the most beautiful grounds that we visit every year. When we arrive each spring, we nestle the tent and wagons next to the ancient horse-chestnut trees with their white candle-like blooms, whilst buzzards ‘mew’ overhead and frothy cow-parsley lines the country lanes.

If you wish to visit Sudeley Castle before the show, tickets for Sudeley Castle can be purchased separately online here www.sudeleycastle.co.uk/book

Please note that due to a private function, the site will be closed after the 11.00 Performance on 22nd June, until 18.30 ahead of the evening show, and we ask that you do not stay on site after the morning show. Our Front of House tent selling refreshments, our food wagons, and our shop will be open for the hour before the show and during the interval only. 

Every summer, Giffords Circus travels to the bright lights of London to entertain the crowds at Chiswick House and Gardens.  The tent is always packed out with jostling school children, family gatherings, hen parties and London glitterati, all keen to get in on the action. Chiswick House is a calm oasis surrounded by bustling city life and we love it. The parakeets that chatter and swoop overhead, the excitement of being in the city which gives us the opportunity to catch up with friends and even see a show or two and even the possibility that you could be sat next to a rock star in the tent!

Barrington, a sleepy Cotswold village near Burford in the height of the summer is woken by the Giffords Circus wagons rolling in and gathering in a farmers’ field between Little and Great Barrington, just across the lane from The Fox pub. Among the picture postcard scenery and Cotswold cottages the vintage style wagons and circus tent appear as if by magic, the music from the big top carrying in the breeze through the Windrush valley.

The setting is bucolic English countryside and could be straight from the pages of an Enid Blyton book, for those who step into the tent are rewarded by being transported far away from the quintessential countryside and into the magical world of circus.

Minchinhampton holds a special place in our hearts, we have been visiting the Common since 2001 and are always welcomed so warmly by the local community. We visit in high summer when the Common is parched by the sun and children are on their school summer holidays. As the wagons roll in, the cows that roam the Common freely watch the comings and goings, occasionally having a scratch against a circus caravan much to the surprise of whoever is inside!

Since 2014 Fennells Farm has been home to Giffords Circus. Sat on a ridge overlooking the Slad Valley and Stroud down in the valley below. This is where the magic happens, the circus shows are created, the horses are trained and rehearsals take place every spring before the show open.

Fennells Farm is a magical place, it looks like a farm at a first glance, but in the barns there are props, costumes, a team of dedicated employees all burning the midnight oil to get the show on the road.
