Giffords Circus at Chiswick, by Nick Warner

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.

Nell Gifford said:

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.
