Tweedy helps St. James City Farm celebrate their 21st birthday...

Tweedy, Giffords Circus much-loved and very mischievous clown visited St. James City Farm in the heart of Gloucester earlier today to cause mischief and mayhem. As part of the 21st birthday celebrations Tweedy presented the City Farm with a cheque for £500, a gift from Giffords Circus to be put towards their amazing and inspiring work within the local community, which includes subsidised riding lessons.

Nell Gifford, founder of Giffords Circus has been working with film maker and photographer Gem Hall to create the most beautiful, poignant and heart felt documentary ‘Nell Gifford: Behind the Curtain’.

Launched today at a time of increased media activity, the film illustrates Nell’s life as a mother, circus doyenne, horse woman, entrepreneur, cancer sufferer, and all that it entails. ‘Nell Gifford: Behind the Curtain’ contains archive footage of Giffords Circus and candid interviews with Nell Gifford, all expertly chronicled by Gem Hall.

We wanted to mark the 250th anniversary of circus in 2018 in our own unique Giffords Circus way, so after chewing the end of our pencils, we thought what better way to mark our 2018 tour than planting trees along our route.

Our tour includes some of the most beautiful village greens, parks and estates in the country and we have already planted an oak tree at Stratton Meadows, Cirencester and a ‘Blenheim orange’ apple tree at Frampton Estate in Frampton-on-Severn. We will soon be visiting Blenheim Palace and Stonor Park to plant black poplars, and Marlborough Common and Sudeley Castle to plant oak trees.
