Roll up, roll up! The acclaimed Gifford’s Circus will be in town.

Prepare for an evening of memorising entertainment when the wildly popular Gifford’s Circus returns to thrill audiences every year.

Bringing the weird and wonderful, Gifford’s Circus always promises a spectacular show.

A fantastic show featuring live music, jaw-dropping stunts, and amazing animal performances, which is sure to follow the storming success of last year’s tour.

Established in 2000, Giffords Circus is a small circus company that delivers circus / theatre fusion to the villages and market towns of the South West. It combines dance, comedy, horses and live music in a one hour show, located on village greens in a small white tent surrounded by hand-made burgundy and gold showman’s wagons.

Guests also have the chance to visit the company’s Circus Sauce for a delicious three-course meal, which as the UK’s only travelling restaurant, offers a truly unique dining experience.

Snowdrops at Painswick Rococo Gardens

See one of the largest collections of naturalised snowdrops in the country at Painswick Rococo Gardens.

From as soon as January starts each year, the garden’s staff are anticipating that the snowdrops will be at their best, with the main Snowdrop Grove in flower.

Garden director Dominic Hamilton says: ‘Predicting the flowering of snowdrops is one of nature’s big gambles, as their peak is very dependent on the weather. With the warm December and early January our snowdrops are at least two weeks ahead of where they would normally be.’

Attracting thousands of visitors from far and wide every year, the snowdrops are set to carpet the area, providing a breathtaking sight at Painswick Rococo Gardens.

Venue: Painswick Rococo Garden
Dates: January to late February
Times: From 10.30am to 5pm
