Giffords Circus: The HooleyGiffords, the much-loved old school travelling circus, takes us to the land where the fairy folk live as the troupe makes a welcome return to Chiswick House. As Nell Gifford would have wanted, Tweedy the Clown and the eccentric collection of acrobats are back. This time, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Giffords Circus, they're putting on The Hooley, a Celtic folktale set to earthly rhythms and featuring horses, fairies, music and dancing. Cal McCrystal directs, hot off the heels of his 2019 Atomic Saloon Show that wowed audiences at the Edinburgh Festival before moving to Las Vegas. Also returning is Tweedy the clown and Giffords favourites Nancy Trotter Landry and Cyr wheel artist Lil Rice. In 2020, Giffords sets up its big top in the grounds of Chiswick House but also adds a second London venue, arriving at the National Trust owned Morden Hall Park for one week in July.

 

About Chiswick House and Gardens

A former royal residence and stunning example of classical 18th-century design, Chiswick House originally belonged to the "architect Earl" Lord Burlington, an avid traveller and lover of Italian architecture. The Palladian revival house assumes the guise of an octagonal domed villa, allegedly inspired by the Villa Capra "La Rotonda" outside Vicenza. More about Chiswick House and Gardens
