Giffords Circus

“Faeries, come take me out of this dull world, For I would ride with you upon the wind, Run on the top of the dishevelled tide, And dance upon the mountains like a flame.”

W B Yeats

We are delighted to announce Giffords Circus will be returning to Chiswick House & Gardens this summer from the 24th June – 11th July. This year’s show, The Hooley, comes from the imagination of Giffords Circus founder Nell Gifford who dreamt up the show with Director Cal McCrystal. Flying fairies, naughty leprechauns, wild horses, Celtic music and dancing come together to create the most joyful Irish shindig.

Now in their 21st year, Giffords Circus has been a firm family favourite at Chiswick for many years. 2021 will be no different – with acclaimed production designer Takis bringing a magical flare to the biggest set the company have ever used.

The Hooley stars Tweedy the Clown, Nancy Trotter Landry, Lil Rice, Rebecca Musselwhite, and Duo Imagine, with live music from the Giffords Circus band directed by musical director James Keay. Following the show Giffords unique travelling restaurant, Circus Sauce, will be open serving three-course hearty locally-sourced seasonal feasts and new for this year – there is a licensed bar and all socially distanced.

Tickets are on sale now. Adult tickets are from £25, and child tickets are from £15. Book quickly in order not to miss out!
