It marks the last time the circus will set up its big top at Cannington Greyhounds due to redevelopment of the site.

New acts include beautiful buckskin horses and the Ashton brothers joining their father Joseph on an all-new Wheel of Death.

Joseph Ashton said his circus had a lot to offer families.

�You can expect a show full of laughs and excitement with Circus Joseph Ashton and it�s very affordable live entertainment,� he said. �We want families to come along, forget all their troubles and have fun with us for a while.�

Audiences will laugh through the Ashton brothers� knockabout routine and be on the edge of their seats as Jordan Ashton presents the only triple somersault on the flying trapeze in an Australian circus and Joseph Ashton performs the forward somersault on the outside of the Wheel of Death.

The entertainment will continue with a mixture of classic and contemporary acts, from trapeze artists The Flying Ashtons, jugglers, and acrobats, to dogs and Goldie the Clown.

The circus box office and the Big Top open 45 minutes before each show. The big top will be at Cannington Greyhounds, with shows on June 27 and 28 and July 4-12, 14-18 at 1pm, June 26 and July 4, 10, 11, 17 and 18 at 7.30pm, June 28 and July 5 at 4pm, and July 19 at noon.
