Giffords Circus at Chiswick House

A reminder to book your tickets now to Giffords Circus, a highlight in the annual calendar, whether you have children or not. This year’s show has just been announced as Xanadu; it is midsummer 1973 in Hyde Park and the flower power movement is at its height. Hippies, hipsters, rock stars, musicians, wild women and global nomads with Shamanic horses gather to play, sing, dance, protest and perform. Policemen and a family of out-of-towners get caught up in the celebrations. Will they get in the groove?

And if you can, book tickets after the show to Circus Sauce; Giffords’ travelling restaurant. The reservations sell out quickly so snap them up; the delicious locally-sourced feast is served up in two magnificent showman’s wagons with an awning lining. New for 2019 there will also be a 1pm lunch service between the 11am and 2.30pm shows, on both Saturdays and Sundays. The food will include seasonal salads, fresh pasta and rhubarb fool, and on Sunday it will be a traditional roast with all the trimmings. Dinner from £30 adults, £20 children aged 14 and under, lunch from £20 for adults and £12.50 children, BYOB.
