Top Tip for the Big Top

My top recommendation so far this summer... has to be Giffords Circus. 
What an explosive miscellany of mad brilliance!

The usherettes are a flock of eccentric ostriches

and the music is as quirky as its vintage clad instrumentalists.

There's a saucer-eyed, opera-singing goddess with her white doves...

Tweedy the diminutive clown with his diminutive pony...

and a Parisian wirewalker who plays a deft crescendo on the trombone when his feet are back on solid ground.
All this punctuated by appearances from Brian the goose and Myrtle the bear in the intimate atmosphere of a handpainted arena.

Go and see for yourself! 

And me, I'm off on holiday with Nell Gifford's autobiography!
