Who we are

Giffords Circus is a magical village green circus that tours England throughout the summer, created by husband and wife team Nell and Toti Gifford in 2000.

Circus Sauce is their unique 60-seat restaurant that follows the circus to each ground. The kitchen is housed in two magnificent wagons with an awning attached to the side, providing space for grand candle-lit, communal oak tables. Each evening after the final show of the day, three delicious courses are served up on candle-lit oak tables in their tent lined with circus tapestries. They use locally sourced fresh ingredients to produce traditional British meals night after night, but because it is a travelling restaurant, ‘local’ changes from week to week.

In the words of Marco Pierre White: "Giffords Circus is the perfect setting for a restaurant, as Nell Gifford’s magical circus world has captured the hearts of all who have had the pleasure of seeing it".

Nell sadly passed away in late 2019. Giffords Circus Cookbook, from which the recipes on The Pass are taken, is dedicated in her honour.

2020 show The Hooley has been postponed to 2021. In its place, Giffords Circus is delighted to present a brand new, socially distanced, totally fabulous, all singing, all dancing circus show and dining extravaganza - The Feast. You will be seated under the big top at your dining table where you will be served a three-course feast, whilst you feast your eyes on Giffords Circus acts and performers in our brand new summer show, featuring many returning favourites including Tweedy, Lil Rice and the Giffords Circus band.

The Feast will open at Fennells Farm on August 14th at Giffords Circus HQ, Fennells Farm, Lypiatt, Stroud, GL6 7NE, and run until 11 October 2020. Tickets available online.

Future events can be booked through the Everyman Theatre website here.
