thisisoxfordshire: Louise Van Beveren is ready to welcome visitors to Giffords Circus Louise Van Beveren is ready to welcome visitors to Giffords Circus

GIFFORDS Circus is in Oxford this week to entertain visitors for the first time in the university parks.

It arrived on Thursday and performances are on all this week until Saturday, July 12.

Louise Van Beveren, who works in the box office at the circus, said: “This year’s show The Thunders explores the wonders of the ancient Greek world of myth and legend.”

Giffords Circus was launched by Oxford graduate Nell Gifford and husband Toti in 2000 and each year creates a show with a different theme.

For this year’s show Ms Gifford consulted Dr Llewelyn Morgan, an associate classics professor at Oxford University to ensure the show’s classical authenticity.

He said: “I think that the circus is a fascinating place to stage the Greek myths.’’ For further information visit giffordscircus.com
