A Gypsy life ... ONCE A YEAR the Ashton travelling Circus came to our little country town. Everyone could feel the excitement building . Us kids would gather together and race down the street to see the clowns the animals and the big tent . I loved it all. The Costumes, the artists, the smells and the music .
my Testimony continues on the back ... Only a certain type of person can ever be showmen and women.
They are restless, they long to see over the next hill,
constantly training and moving from one place to another.
As soon as one show finishes, they pack up and go on,
always restless, always following the sun."
now for a little history...
James Henry Ashton founded the first Australian Circus in the early 1800’s and was first licensed by an act of Parliament in 1851. For his whole life and for generations after, the Ashtons have visited both regional towns and big cities, bringing joy to the people of Australia for over 160 years. For generations, the Ashtons crossed flooded rivers, and deserts, drove through snow-covered mountains, fended off bushrangers, and even traversed where there were no roads to reach the communities who have loved and inspired our family of performers for generations. People came from all around to enjoy Ashton Circus. In the 1800’s, Ned Kelly sometimes watched the show and even had tea with the performers after the show in gratitude.
