    Interview | Nell Gifford of Giffords Circus…

    It had been decades since I’d last gone to the circus, my memories of the Ringling Brothers still fresh in my mind. The sweet smell of cotton candy, the sound of two thousand excited people waiting for the show to start and the drumroll as it all began. The setting was decidedly different from previous experience. The backdrop, Daylesford Organic Farm in the Cotswolds, rolling green hills, fresh air and of course a herd of cows lazily chewing on grass. As I made my way from the car park to the grassy field where the tent peaked out above the hedge row, the excited giggles of children caught my attention. As soon as I entered the campground I could tell that Giffords Circus was a different experience than other circuses. Nothing looked shabby or hinted at a life on the move. From the ornate costumes decorated in sparkles and gold embellishments to the beautifully painted circus caravans, there is no detail that has not been handled with care.
