About Giffords Circus ¡Carpa! at Stonor Park
Giffords Circus is back at Stonor Park in 2022 with a brand-new 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.
Giffords Circus is a magical village green circus that tours England from the first days of spring to the first glimpse of winter. The 2022 show will evoke the sights and sounds of rural Mexico with incredible art, music, history, and people as the inspiration.
The Circus is bringing Mexican performers over to join the troupe and, with them, create a show full of skill, humour, turmoil and excitement.
Giffords Circus is delighted to return to Stonor Park. Thanks to the Hon. William and Lady Ailsa Stonor – whose family have owned Stonor Park for over 850 years – for welcoming the circus to this hidden valley on the border between Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
Stonor Park and Gardens are beautiful and are open to visitors, and we recommend combining your visit to the circus with a potter around the gardens and a play in the amazing playground Tumblestone Hollow – but please, if you see Tweedy playing there, do send him back to the circus!
