Mexican flavour for Giffords Circus 2022 show

Gloucestershire-based Giffords Circus has announced the name for its 2022 show, ¡Carpa!

The word ¡Carpa! originates from the Spanish word 'tent' and refers to a removable canvas roofed structure used for a travelling theatre, much like a circus.

¡Carpa! was a type of theatre that flourished in the 1920s and 1930s in Mexico and the southwestern states in America.

Show director Cal McCrystal said: "Our 2022 show will evoke the sights and sounds of rural Mexico. I have directed in that splendid country several times. It is a place that I greatly admire.

"Mexico's incredible art, music, history, and people will be our inspiration. We are bringing Mexican performers over to join the troupe and with them we will create a show full of skill, humour, turmoil and excitement."

Giffords Circus's UK tour opens at the Circus's HQ at Fennells Farm in Stroud on 14th April 2022, Easter weekend, before touring the UK taking in venues including Daylesford Organic, Sudeley Castle, Blenheim Palace, Minchinhampton Common, and Stratton Meadows in Cirencester. The circus is also excited to be returning to Frampton on Severn.
