Silvers Extends Ballarat Season

 

It's a circus steeped in history. It was started by Mervyn King along with tentmakers, David Hardie Snr. and his two sons Les and David Jnr. King, an orphan, was given to St. Leons Circus at the age of seven.He spent his entire life performing in the ring and became one of the Australian Circus' best known animal trainers and acrobats. He started Silver's circus in 1946 by breaking in a first class lion act, buying and training show horses, surplus army tents and other equipment. It became one of the most well organised best looking and popular circuses in the country.

Since 1976 Silvers has been and continues to be run Anton and Anna Gasser.

3BA's PT spoke with ringmaster and master of Illusion Simon Tate.
