About Giffords Circus
Toti and I began Giffords Circus in 2000. Toti is the son of a farmer and grew up on the Cotswold hills. I grew up in Oxford and when I left New College Oxford I had a dream, remembered from childhood, of starting my own village green circus.
Together we have realized this dream. We bought a round white tent from the Trade It newspaper. We built a maroon and gold showmans wagon to live in. We advertised for performers in The Stage newspaper and held auditions in a little dusty theatre in Cheltenham.
These were our first baby steps, and since then we have taken a new show out on the roads of England every summer. Our vision was a miniature village green circus, bursting at the seams, packed, rowdy, tiny, a little band of performers who live nomadically, performing daily, engrossed in the serious business of making magic.
Since that start in 2000 we have entertained over 650,000 people, and have worked with some extraordinary circus performers and creative:– the mercurial comic genius Tweedy; Attila, a Hungarian horseman from the Great Hungarian Plane; Gabor Vosteen who played Mozart on five recorders, three in his mouth, one in each nostril; Molly Molloy, the choreographer who redefines Burlesque; eccentric dancer Barry Grantham.
