A family-run vintage circus is over the moon to return to London for the first time in over a decade performing at Chiswick House & Gardens.
The fun-filled show for all the family run by Giffords Circus which was established 15 years ago, weaves circus with theatre, opera, dance, clowns, acrobats and animals.
Audiences are invited to enter the world of the Victorian Lunar Park, a fairground run by a larger than life illusionist and magician, Odoroff, and his little man assistant, David.
This year famous jugglers, Bibi and Bichu, bring their 13 cousins from Ethopia, and clown Tweedy is shot from a cannon and turns himself into the man in the moon, the bear gallops past on a pony, the carousel horse comes to life and the jugglers are turned upside down.
The mischievous summer tour entitled Moon Songs will include 24 performances in its signature burgundy and gold showman's wagon and billowing tent which will take over the grounds at Chiswick House for two weeks in June.
Cal Crystal, who is directing his fourth show, said: “It is very exciting to be bringing the most beautiful circus in England from its home in the Cotswolds to play in one of London’s most picturesque settings.
"We promise a show with more elegance, more excitement and more laughs than ever before.”
Enjoy the chaos, mischief and mayhem and be drawn into the lunatic world from June 11 to June 24.
