Roll up, roll in to the stately pleasure-dome for miracles, song, symphony and enchantment. Musicians, horses, clowns and tumblers enfolded in this joyful paradise, with music loud and long - the Giffords Circus caravan is still on the road for this 2019 summer of love.

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? Nell Gifford builds a pleasure dome and Tweedy has a job in the kitchen as he thought everyone was talking about “Flour Power”. As evening approaches, the ever more chaotic event careers towards a joyful, transcendental finale. Be there or be square!

 
 
“It’s not your average big tent affair but a wonderland. It’s the best live show I’ve ever seen. I’d love to join the circus”
— Rachel Weisz, Harpers Bazaar

Circus sauce is our unique 70-seat restaurant that follows the circus to each ground.

The kitchen is housed in two magnificent wagons with an awning attached to the side, providing space for grand candle-lit, communal oak tables.

Each evening after the final show of the day, three delicious courses are served up on candle-lit oak tables in our tent lined with circus tapestries.  We use locally sourced fresh ingredients to produce traditional meals night after night.

It’s a never-to-be forgotten dining experience
