Generations of Talent
5th generation Ashton, Jan Ashton-Rodriguez and her husband, internationally acclaimed (former) Spanish Circus star, Brasil (Serifin) Sanchez-Rodriguez, opened Circus Xsaiva in 2001. They then went on to open Ashton Entertainment in 2010. This is their extension of the family tradition they were born and bred into.
Jan and Brasil’s youngest daughter, Chantel Ashton-Rodriguez started running the family business in 2017, specialising in Circus Productions, Circus Arts, Tour Management and Large Scale Corporate Events.
