If you love entertaining children, then you have found a home. Welcome to the Kids Entertainer Hub.

Kids Entertainer Hub (KEH) is a blog, podcast and community created to support and educate professionals who chose to entertain children.


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. i

On 24th March 2015, Kids Entertainer Hub was borne.

Together Julian and I built a resource that, today, serves tens of thousands of fellow kids entertainers from all around the world.

  • The Kids Entertainer podcast has had over 120.000 downloads
  • The Kids Entertainer Hub website (this one) has had over 83.000 visits from fellow kids entertainers
  • The Kids Entertainer Facebook group is now a vibrant community of over 3000 likeminded kids entertainers who share, help and guide one another.
  • The strength of KEH is its inclusivity.

You will meet professional entertainers who make their living from entertaining.

You will find newbies who are just getting started.

Some of us just entertain part time and others use the skills in our day jobs such as youth workers.

KEH has members who are face painters, clowns, jugglers, magicians, balloon artists, story tellers, Santa’s, animal handlers, costume characters, musicians and more.

This website is jam packed with free resources, podcasts, articles, handouts, training tips, free eBooks all about being a kids entertainer.

Some resources cover the artistic side and others focus on the business side of entertaining.

Julian and I hope you will find a home here at the Kids Entertainer Hub and that you will visit us regularly.
