Roll-up the circus is coming to town
26th July 2016
Diary mad – that is me. It is something that drives papa pirate round the bend. In the summer, leading up to the summer break, I go into over drive with booking nights out and family activities. I just love the spring months – I have these romantic visions of us sitting together as a family on picnic rugs at cultural events or the circus. In reality it turns out I am usually grabbing wet wipes and bellowing at kids to not run away or get lost, as well as worrying about the fact that my kids have eaten sausages for the tenth meal in a row!!
I booked Gifford Circus months ago, it was recommended to me by my cousin who had been the year before and raved about it.
We had a Sunday morning slot and I was suffering somewhat from the night before – nothing like sitting in canvas with hundreds of people when you are dehydrated. We went to the Chiswick performance (they are touring all summer long), which was in the fab walled gardens at Chiswick House. You really wouldn’t know you are in zone 2, London!
Prices are from £10 for kids and £15 for adults. It is running in various locations across the South until the end of August. Go check it out and tell me what you think.
