Ashton Entertainment was founded by a 5th generation Ashton, Jan Ashton-Rodriguez and her husband, internationally acclaimed (former) Spanish Circus star, Brasil (Serifin) Sanchez-Rodriguez. This is their extension of the family tradition they were born and bred into. 

The Ashton Circus Family is the oldest Circus family in Australia. We are proud of our history, and excited to carry this great legacy into the future.

The circus is an environment where many generations of people from all different backgrounds and all over the world can come together with the shared goal of creating a unique experience for the audience.  Ashton Entertainment provides a platform associated with spectacular circus performances combined with the principles that have fostered circus throughout history.

The most amazing performers that draw the audience in from start to finish. A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED show.

Dale Felizatto

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! Incredible! My boys haven't stopped talking about it.

Louise Hunter

Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU the Ashton Family Circus. You guys were amazing. We took our 2 littlies to their first Circus Experience at Capalaba on Saturday afternoon – they both LOVEd IT!!!! and have stopped raving about it. For Show & Tell on Monday – I’ll give you one guess what the topic was???  They were both in stitches at the jokes, and in complete awe of the stunts- their favourite was the clown. Thank you for an enjoyable experience.

On behalf of Room to Read, I would like to thank you for being a generous sponsor of our Fundraising Event on the 18th October. With your support, the event raised just under $5,800 for Girls Education in Sri Lanka, that is, 21 years of girls’ education funded in one night. Your donation of four Family Passes is greatly appreciated and it was used as raffle prizes. Additionally, your performances (free of charge to Room to Read) on the evening were fabulous and it provided great entertainment for our attendees.


We went to your Circus this morning in Redland Bay to celebrate our son's 5th birthday and had an amazing time. Beautiful and exciting family entertainment, we all had all ball! Thank you guys and good luck. We'll be back next year!
