Olympus Cameras have got 100 free tickets to come down to the circus at our new home Fennells Farm, Lypiatt next week and photograph some extracts from this year's show, with the guiding hand of portrait photography legend Damian McGillicuddy. Follow the link for more information.
Here is some lovely behind the scenes footage from BBC Wiltshire of the circus, including great interviews with Nell, Mr David, Virgile and Tweedy.
An absolutely exceptional home is wanted for our beautiful Dalmatian Domino.
He has completed one season with Giffords Circus on our current show The Thunders, receiving lots of training, exercise and attention.
Domino is a very sensitive, responsive, and intelligent dog, who will benefit from a hands-on owner affording him lots of time.
Dalmatians are bright, strong dogs and so Domino needs to be somewhere where he will have plenty of regular exercise, and we will be taking this into consideration when placing him.
If you are interested in offering Domino a home from the beginning of October, please call Nell on 07789 395184 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

We've left Minchinhampton Common behind, and now we have sprung up in Bath - Alice Park. Thank you to everyone who came to see the show in Minchinhapton, such a brilliant place with cows wandering between fields and across roads - and through circuses -, some beautiful little stone houses and so many people coming down to see the shows!
The company had a well deserved day off on Wednesday, and after a few weeks in village greens and commons we are all taking the opportunity to spent a bit of time indulging in some shopping, some coffe ad cake, and a few of us have even taken a luxury visit to the Spa. After months of showers, anything resembling an actual bath is utterly glorious.
Thursday brought round our opening show in Bath as well as a parade from Toppings Bookstore to the Museum of Bath at Work for a talk about Giffords Circus and how it came to be. Thanks to everyone who came despite the rain, and for some wonderful questions about the circus, we hope you all learnt a little more about us and about the circus tradition, and we hope you enjoy the show this weekend! And also a thank you to Toppings Bookstore for organising the day.
We've got a big bank holiday weekend ahead with 9 shows in three days, so we'll be trying to take things a little easier this weekend.
