Gifford's Circus, the glorious, glamorous and gregarious Gloucestershire-based circus is back touring the South of England. After opening at its base at Fennell's Farm near Stroud it is visiting a host of locations including Bowood, Daylesford Organic, Blenheim Palace, Chiswick near London and many other places across our region besides.

Meri Meri And this year a Cheltenham gift-wear company has designed a special circus-themed range. Meri Meri, founded by Meredithe Stuart-Smith in 1985 when she sold her first range of glittery greeting cards to Bergdorf Goodman in New York City. Tableware and bunting soon followed, along with the invention of the ‘cupcake kit’ in 2008.

When the Gifford's Circus team discovered that Meredithe was a fan of the circus, and brought all her team to the circus each year, they invited her creative team to design a range of circus-themed party wear and suggested she do a Giffords Circus themed craft activity as one of their monthly activities that is sent to subscribers each month.

Now selling in 69 countries, in more than 5,000 shops and online. Meri Meri has offices in Cheltenham and also in Reno, United States.
