Cirencester’s top luxury hotel is teaming up with the South West’s most iconic circus to offer a magical family break. The Kings Head and Giffords Circus will be offering grown ups and little ones alike the chance to make truly unforgettable memories with an exclusive break this September.

The circus break gives guests the chance to escape to The Cotswolds with an overnight stay in the heart of the historic Corinium town, paying a visit to Gifford’s Circus’ all new show – Moon Songs from Friday 4th September to Monday 10th September.

Directed by the critically acclaimed Cal McCrystal, Moon Songs invites audiences to enter the world of the Victorian Lunar Park, a fairground run by larger than life illusionist and man of magic and mystery, Odoroff, and his Little Man assistant, David.

General Manager Stephen Mannock said: “We are delighted to be collaborating with Giffords Circus this summer. Giffords is such an icon of The Cotswolds and one that we are very proud to be working with. I have fond memories of taking my own family to see the circus each summer. Cirencester is a landmark stop of Giffords Circus’ summer tour and what better way to celebrate their return than by joining forces with the town’s first and only luxury hotel. We hope our package will give guests an experience to remember!”

The exclusive stay includes overnight accommodation and breakfast, including a fun and fruity cocktail for children as well as a one off signed poster from Giffords famous Clown, Tweedy. The circus break starts from £165 per room, per night based on two adults and one child. Tickets to Giffords Circus are priced at £25 per adult and £15 per child. Under 3s are free to all shows if they are sitting on a lap.

Giffords Circus is a family-run vintage circus that each summer returns with a show for families, farmers and film stars alike. They experiment with the circus form, weaving theatre, opera, dance and puppetry into a 90-minute fun filled show. Giffords Circus shows are always idiosyncratic, beautifully designed creations featuring a live orchestra, clowns, acrobats, horses, handmade costumes and a much loved goose.

The Grade II-listed Kings Head hotel has quickly become one of the hottest hotels in The Cotswolds. Located in the heart of Cirencester the modern, elegant hotel offers 45 stylish bedrooms, an exceptional wine list, subterranean spa and an all day dining option offering the very best of modern British food.
