Circus back in Marlborough for more magic

Giffords Circus rolls into Marlborough next week for its annual visit to the town.
The circus was formed 13 years ago by Oxford graduate Nel Gifford and her husband Toti, a landscape gardener and has become a regular summer attraction.
The Gloucestershire-based circus tours small towns in Wiltshire and Gloucester-shire with its themed presentations.
This year it will be presenting Lucky 13 – a new show that is about family, gypsies, superstition, magic and mystery.
Set in Serbia, Lucky 13 is a performance for the whole family and offers what the Giffords call a ‘dazzling adventure’.
Audiences will be taken back in time to mysterious and foreign lands – where fire, magic, puppets, illusion, dancing, hilarity, horses and Brian the goose will star alongside world-renowned acrobats, jugglers, hand balancers, wirewalkers, magicians, tap dancers and aerial artists from all around the globe.
During the annual tour, a wild Serbian Gypsy trio will be performing under the guidance of music co-ordinator Nick Hooper, who joins the circus for the first time, having previously worked on the Harry Potter films.
Giffords circus will be on the Common from August 29 to September 9.
There will be a performance every night and two performances each day at the weekends.
