The Circus Joseph Ashton has a rich history dating back over 150 years and seven generations. A whole family of acrobats, bareback riders, animal trainers, clowns and trapeze artists - all 'born to perform'. A traditional Australian circus for all ages, that will entertain you from start to finish.
See all the magic, mystery and excitement under the big top. Watch with wonder as the acrobats tumble and the trapeze artists fly through the air. Laugh at the crazy clowns and their silly antics. Be amazed at the death-defying Wheel of Death.
Circus Joseph Ashton is one of the few circuses to still have performing animals. Dogs ponies and goats - and they are so clever and cute.
The Circus canteen has a variety of snack foods and drinks for you to enjoy. Choose from hot dogs and hot chips, popcorn, Fairy Floss, drinks, slushies and ice-creams. Buy a show-bag or a Programme to remember your trip to the circus. Before the show starts there are pony rides and plenty of fun stuff to watch while you wait.
Travelling and performing throughout the year, mainly in Western Australia, Circus Joseph Ashton appears in many different areas. Keep an eye out for advertising or check out the website for details of where they will be performing next. The shows are always extremely popular and the tickets sell out fast so it is best to book in advance from the venue.
Each evening or matinee show last approximately two hours. Tickets are $20.00 for Elevated Seating ($15.00 for children 3 to 15 years of age) , $30.00 for Ringside Seating ($20.00 for Children 3 to 15 years of age). Children under the age of two are free. Tickets are available from the venue or on-line.
