The Hooley comes from the imagination of Giffords Circus founder Nell Gifford who dreamt up the show with Director Cal McCrystal.

“There will be flying fairies, naughty leprechauns, wild horses, Celtic music and dancing that will create the most joyful Irish shindig. The event promises to be the most magical and poignant show to celebrate its 21st year.

Giffords Circus continues to push the boundaries of circus artistry by combining high production value with creative flair and attention to detail, with acclaimed production designer Takis bringing his magical flare to the production with their biggest set ever.

The Hooley stars Tweedy the Clown, Nancy Trotter Landry, Lil Rice, Rebecca Musselwhite, and Duo Imagine, with live music from the Giffords Circus band directed by musical director James Keay. Following the show Giffords unique travelling restaurant, Circus Sauce, will be open serving three-course hearty locally-sourced seasonal feasts and new for this year – there is a licensed bar and all socially distanced.

Giffords Circus The Hooley UK tour opens on the 19th May 2021 and runs until 26th September 2021, for all dates and venues please visit
