"I held the jewel of my childhood up to my eye, and through it I saw ponies

and a dressing up box and a tent, and that was Giffords Circus"

Nell Gifford


Good morning!

Today's visit has a circus theme! This year is the 20th anniversary of the magical Giffords Circus. Co-founded by the inspirational Nell Gifford, the circus is based upon her childhood dream of starting her own village green circus. Every summer the circus travels around the Cotswolds, and parts of the West Country, entertaining with, amongst others, Tweedy the Clown, trapeze artists, magicians, tight-rope walkers and horses.

As the circus has had to postpone the start of this year's tour, Tweedy the Clown has had to start a new job at the local Lost and Found Office. You can follow his adventures on The Barn Theatre's Youtube page Episode 3 is today at 12 noon and can be seen on the Barn's Instagram page @thebarntheatrecirencester before being added to their Youtube page.

You will find the links in the Circus and Theatres section.

Happy watching!
