Welcome to Penny Gaff

“Penny Gaff” is a term that was once used in relation to a popular form of cheap entertainment in Victorian England. Here, we explore how the saga of circus is woven into the historical fabric of modern Australia.

Circus in Australia today, in both its traditional and contemporary genres, is the outcome of a continuum that extends not only over some 175 years of modern Australia’s history, but also back to its London, medieval and ancient roots.
