Nell Gifford & Sally Gardner
Circus Magic
16.15 - 17.15: Saturday 9th November
Lansdown Hall
Tickets: £6. Available from Stroud Subscription Rooms

Roll up, roll up for a magical hour of fun and laughter with the one and only Nell Gifford, owner and producer of Giffords Circus. She’ll be talking about her gorgeous new picture book, “Nell & the Circus of Dreams”, as well as sharing tales from behind the scenes, and her inside secrets on what it’s like to run away with the circus!

Sharing star billing with Nell is Costa and Carnegie Medal-winning author Sally Gardner, also the founder of NUword which champions positive debate about dyslexia. Her fabulous new book, “Mr Tiger, Betsy and the Sea Dragon” was also inspired by the thrills and spills of the circus, and features Mr Tiger, his troupe of acrobats, pirates, and Betsy K Glory, the daughter of a mermaid and an ice cream maker!

Chaired by Nicolette Jones, Children’s Books Editor of the Sunday Times.
