Gifford's Circus

44 0845 459-7469

This independent traveling act is the creation of Nell Gifford, who ran away to the big top on her gap year from Oxford, and her husband, Toti. The circus features handpicked acts from Romania, Zimbabwe, or wherever people are doing weird and wonderful tricks that fit in with the reigning burlesque aesthetic. Nell performs in equestrian numbers, shares ringmaster duties with Toti and designs the elaborate costumes herself, while Toti builds the old-fashioned wooden caravans that house the acts.
