The Circus Joseph Ashton, formerly known as Ashton's Circus and Australia's oldest running circus, is currently in town at Rockingham after 150 years and 7 generations of performers.

With their family show becoming too big to continue together towards the Year 2000, grandson Joseph Ashton flew solo alongside wife Michelle and sons Jordan & Merrik. Other family circuses include Lorraine Ashton's Classic Circus and Circus Xsavia.

For a glimpse inside the Ashton's history, please view the gallery of intriguing photos.

The magic of the circus for little people is an experience especially worth the memory, even if only once. Although you may want to go again when they are older and will remember it better, before they get too... No, no one is every too old for the circus!

We have seen a few circuses in our years, each of course similar, but then unique in their own way. I remember thinking this one delivered on acrobatic and trapeze skills. Their practice certainly paid off.

You'll be treated to captivating acts such as the Wheel of Death, trapeze artists & acrobats, jugglers, trained animals and the cheeky clown all under the Big Top.

Tickets are already selling out for ringside seats in some shows, so you may have to get in fast. Seating is also available in centre and side views. To book for the Rockingham venue go to 'schedule & tickets' on the website.

Plan your trip ahead of time so that any parking hassles may be avoided and if you wish to contact someone from Circus Joseph Ashton click here for details.

Don't clown around or delay. Shows for the Rockingham extravaganza run every Friday, Saturday and Sunday until the 14th August only.
