Sarah Llewellyn has composed intoxicating music for a gloriously rumbustious town band.’
Rupert Christian, The Telegraph, June 2011

‘a total delight’
Ismene Brown, The Arts Desk

‘. . .theres real storytelling here, and the kind of attention to detail that drapes the tent with giant scrawled excerpts from the book and gives a real Russian twist to Sarah Llewellyns fine music played by the live band . . . Brilliant.’
Libby Purves, The Times

‘. . .Snatches of folk music from a distant band float past on an early summer breeze . . a tiny colourful and thoroughly unusual troupe . . .’
Patricia Carswell, The Telegraph, May 2011

‘. . .the unique charm that is Giffords, plenty of circus skills threaded along the narrative of a pared down version of the Russian classic. Full of drama, rousing music and some inspired clowning from Tweedy the Clown. . .’
The Hay-festival, May 2011Hereford Times

‘I love the music, it’s a massive highlight for me: the mood shifts, rhythm and brass are extraordinary, melodies beautiful and this year’s devil’s stomp makes my hairs stand on end’.
Peter Browning, audience member

‘The original score and live music is one of the things that makes Giffords so memorable. . . ‘
Laura, Word Press
