After a delightful trip to Giiffords Circus 2022 show we're overjoyed to see that the magical troupe will be back in Chiswick Gardens, London, for the Enfants de Paradis 2023 Spectacular this June. With haute-couture hand stitched costumes, glittering sets and dizzyingly talented performers, Giffords Circus is the time machine which transports us simultaneously to our own childhoods and whispers of simpler days.
With a delicious world food offering and lashings of candyfloss on sticks served from traditional wooden circus vehicles, Giffords is as mesmerising for adults as it is for children in its vivid and wholesome design and timeless glamour. We are counting down the days to our next visit and this time we WILL buy ourselves the Emma Bridgewater souvenir mug to keep the magic alive!
This year's show takes inspiration from French Romanticism in the mid-19th century and is billed to be 'their most lavish show yet' - we're intrigued... as last year's already seemed like the golden ticket to us.
The circus tours the country across 13 destinations starting in April. Child friendly daytime performances with an interval are available. Bookings now being taken.
