Gifford Circus

Every year we pay a visit to Giffords Circus and every year we love it. Yesterday's visit was no exception.

As usual, the performance was funny, thrilling and hugely entertaining. This year's theme was the 250th anniversary of the birth of the circus, and there was an even stronger focus than usual on 'traditional' circus acts, exemplified by the bigger-that-usual comic turn by Tweedy the clown.

We were delighted to see Nancy Trotter Landry back as the compere. She is very, very funny and can sing wonderfully. Not to mention those hugely expressive eyes!

The live band was excellent, the 1930s-style consumes beautiful, and the acrobatic acts were particularly impressive this year.

An excellent evening out -- highly recommended!
