The other weekend we paid our annual visit to Giffords Circus down in Barrington - it's an essential part of a Cotswolds summer (even without children!) particularly when combined with the after show deliciousness that is Circus Sauce, their travelling restaurant!
And as usual Nell Gifford and her amazing team did not disappoint - right from the very first opening scenes!
Everything about this circus is just wonderful. The set, the costumes, the music, the humour, seeing your favourite performers from previous years (but always with new tricks up their sleeves!), meeting soon to be new favourites and the inevitable oohs, aahs and gasps of admiration as they entertain us with seemingly impossible feats and tricks.
We loved every single second of it all and are already eagerly awaiting next years performance! We will definitely be back!
And if you've not been yet this year, there's still Minchinhampton, Bath, Malborough and Cirencester still to come between now and the end of September!
