Clowning around: Behind scenes at Giffords Circus

Latest news

    Nell Gifford left home to join a circus aged 18, and fell in love with the way of life. She fulfilled her dream of starting her own village green circus in 2000.

    Based on a farm in the Cotswolds, Giffords Circus goes on tour around England each summer. Acrobats, dancers, clowns and chicken trainers join the travelling troupe to take the show on the road.
