Hi, I am Ken Kelly and I have enjoyed bringing smiles to children for over 30 years.

I always loved my job but there was a problem.

I found there were very few people I could speak to that shared my passion and that made me feel alone and isolated.

I met Julian Mather, a fellow kids entertainer, back in 2014 and I found that having someone who was just as enthusiastic as me, made me a better performer. Julian and I realised that kids entertainers needed a place to meet, share ideas, network and grow.

On 24th March 2015, Kids Entertainer Hub was borne. Click here to learn what to expect from KEH
