Very enjoyable show at Redland bay today, both kids and adults enjoyed. Thank you, great fun. You are a talented team. Thank you.
Saw your show tonight, loads of laughs, fabulous night out with the family!!! Thank you so much and see you all next time!!!
We would just like to give a BIG shout out to the Ashton Entertainment Circus Cast for your hospitality and friendliness towards ourselves and our 2 boys. Thank you for allowing them into your travelling community for the time period that you guys were in Redland Bay and showing them what entertainment is all about. The impression that we got from them after each visit was how kind and warm hearted you guys are. Also thank you for inviting us to your show. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the show and it was a GREAT pleasure to meet you guys in person.
Thanks for the great show! Kids and I had an excellent time!
It is such a pleasure to get these memories of the Trix Circus students. Thank you Chantel Ashton Rodriguez for sharing these wonderful memories. Thanks also to your family circus for giving these talented students a chance to perform in a real circus and for giving them a great experience on their journey in our beloved circus industry. We all hold our collective breaths hoping that Covid-19 will ease up and allow us to get back to do the things we love to do, and that is to entertain. Do what you need to do to get through this safely, we all want to get back to work!
The highlight of my life 60 years ago, was when Ashtons Circus came to our suburb, Kingsgrove NSW. Watched the parade down the main street, from my front yard. Jumped the back fence, into the paddock where the Big Top was located. Played with Jan Ashton and saw the circus countless times over the years. I still remember being enthralled watching Merv Ashton performing on the flying trapeze. A clown asking for a young lad to volunteer to ride a horse. Kneeling on the horse, he was put in a harness, rope attached above as he was bouncing up and down, he was pulled into the air, while his trousers were pulled down his legs! Would definitely be frowned upon today, but was so much fun at the time and the audience loved it. “Those were the day”.
This was such an amazing show. Well done everyone!
Wow! Thank you so much for such amazing evening! Brought my 4 boys and had to drag the 14 and 12 year old who were not keen at all to be there…that all changed pretty quickly right on 7pm when the excitement began! What a wonderful experience! You were all brilliant! My boys haven’t stopped talking about it.
The most amazing performers that draw the audience in from start to finish. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Show.
I went tonight with my two kids to the Capalaba show, have to say from ringing yesterday to making a booking really lovely conversation with the lady who I’m sure was the MC tonight, to having my kids laughing lots and loving Ziggy, to watching the breathtaking Chantelle until the very end of the show I couldn’t fault a thing and highly recommend this circus to all, thank you for a great night will definitely be a return customer!!!
Thank you to all the wonderful people at Ashton Entertainment for a fabulous night. My daughter is in awe of you.
On behalf of my family, thanks for the Glen Innes performance tonight. I loved it. Would love to be able to know all the artists behind the music during the show because the music was awesome and would love to listen to again.
You guys have done amazing! Thanks so much for a wonderful time! Esther is still raving about the acrobatics and Ollie is still performing the telescope routine! Good luck!!!
AH-MAY-ZING!!! Job well done tonight guys. brilliant…Loved every second of it.
Just been to see you guys at Mudgeerabah…you guys are the best multi-taskers out!
Was fantastic thank you. The kids loved Squiggy! My 9 year old loved the history, we looked it up on your website while waiting and seeing grandparents helping younger ones. A credit to you all. Thank you for the fantastic experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed your show in inverell today. The kids went to bed totally exhausted but still talking about how clever you all were.
Wow this is a great show and I really recommend it. My elderly father attended and nearly fell off the chair as he was laughing so much. The commical antics of Squiggy the Clown, Aerial Artistry of Chantel, the incredible High Perch and elgant contortion were just a few acts which just keep you captivated. A fantastic family show!!! Come and support them!!!
Every now and then, an ex-student will share a picture of an act that I taught them and it is wonderful being reminded of those times during their journey in circus. Thanks to @Chantel Ashton Rodriguez for sharing all these wonderful memories and to your family for giving this group of wonderful students to have a chance of performing in your circus. I really enjoy seeing how far many of them have come in the circus industry since these pictures were taken.
Just wanted to say thank you. We came to the opening night at Morayfield tonight i can’t remember how long its been since I’ve seen my daughter so excited and over the moon for the whole show. Thank you for keeping the circus going and the kid in all of us alive.
What a fantastic group of people. Talented, happy and super professional. We had some guests travel in from Durnham Downs for the rodeo who had three young boys They planned to do the circus workshop but there was a mixup with the time. The Ashton Entertainment guys did a private workshop with the kids on the back lawn of Club Boutique Hotel Cunnamulla. How Amazing is that. Thank you Ashton guys made three little boys very happy!
Thanks so much for having us tonight the kids had so much fun. We’ve seen you guys a few times and we always leave satisfied! Thank you
My family and I have just now returned from a performance at Ashton’s Circus. IT WAS AMAZING!!!! It was a total ADRENALIN RUSH!!! There were moments when my heart was in my throat. And I was left breathless. And the Clowns were so funny. I laughed until I almost cried. The performers are fearless. And their skills are mind blowing. We all thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the performance.
And after the show, it was just a buzz for all of us to be able talk to all the performers. They were only too happy to talk to us all and take photos with the children and give them autographs. All of the staff of Ashton’s entertainment were friendly- old fashioned manners and friendliness are alive and well at their performances.
When they come back next year, myself and my family will be there. We look forward to catching the show every time they come back to our area. For a great and affordable night out, do yourself a favour, grab the family or a group of friends and catch their show. You will not be disappointed. You will come away feeling as thrilled as we do. Don’t miss out, we booked by phone and picked them up from the ticket lady (really nice lady as well).
We booked our show for a seating of 8 on the very 1st night on Friday the 1st of August 14′ and it was absolutely great such an enjoyable night the clowns were crazy n cute and the girls doing trapeze were breath taking …. have watched alot of footage since on youtube and this also takes my breath away the absolute talent over 7 generations is FANTASTIC!!! BIGGEST Thumbs up from the Edwards Family !!
Thanks so much for Jan and your family for another amazingly, awesome and entertaining performance. You guys never fail to entertain and give us a few laughs along the way. Thank you as well to the performers for letting our boys have a photo taken with them at the end of the show this afternoon too. My boys are Ashton Entertainment groupies. They love you guys and so do we. Your family continues to entertain mine. for the last 40 years and still counting! Safe travels to you all to Sydney and we will see you at Capalaba.
We had a wonderful time at the circus. Thanks so much to Ashton Entertainment and the lovely Ashton-Rodriguez family. All the kids left with prizes and were very proud of their autographed programs. What an amazing experience!
