My name is Ben Bogan and I was raised in Shaw, near Oldham. Many of my school years were spent at St Mary's, Shaw involved in sporting activities; either that or causing mischief. From an early age I took great pleasure in entertaining others, whether it be my classmates, teachers or family members.
My passion for sports extended into high school and it was after then that I became involved in 'school to school' football coaching. At such a young age, I realised the immense sense of wellbeing and personal gratification that can be gained through working with children-for all parties involved.
When I left school and went on an annual family holiday, it was only then that I took notice of the children's entertainment within the hotel. My new found passion encouraged me to apply for a job in childcare with Thomson Holiday's and I have never looked back.
I was based in Puerto Pollenca, a family resort in Majorca. I spent three amazing years there, two of which were spent as a childcare manager. The role saw me co-ordinating and managing a team of representatives whilst entertaining over 30,000 holiday makers. In 2005, my resort was voted 'best childcare venue and entertainment' and my team 'number one childcare unit in the world'; all within 'Thomson Holidays'. It was a major turning point in my career; I had managed to be part of such a remarkable achievement whilst doing something that I loved. I had found my passion and would ensure that it continued even when I had left Thomson. It was at this point that I made a decision to carry on alone; entertaining children at parties, school discos and events.
Fast forward a few years to 2017, March 8th and my little baby girl Summer was born. A turning point in my life becoming a very proud father. Roll on a couple of years and my wife and I welcomed our second child, Arabella who is growing up to be a little character. After entertaining children for over 15 years I’m loving every minute of being a dad!
I specialise in traditional mini disco style parties.
**PLEASE NOTE: I don't offer entertainment for Christenings, Weddings, Baptisms etc***
My parties are designed for children aged 4-11 years to dance and enjoy age-appropriate games. They involve silly dances that the kids just love and get involved in, lots of party games designed for specific age groups, disco, dance competitions and more.

I currently work with a number of schools as my school disco seems to be very popular amongst teaching staff and PTA members. I keep the children entertained so there should be no need for children running around.

"Ben is the most wonderful children’s entertainer I’ve ever seen! We had him today for our little boy’s 4th birthday and he was amazing with all of the children, he got everyone involved with ease and the party was perfect from start to finish. Spider-Man was the cherry on top, and was so authentic even down to the accent and stories he told the children. I’ve had so many people from the party asking for Ben’s info, I’d recommend him ten times over. Thanks so much for making Blake’s dreams come true''
"Truly exceptional! Ben's interaction and inclusion of the children is outstanding, such positive feedback from everyone who attended! Thank you so much for making the party so special, we were blown away!
Highly recommend a Disney princess guest appearance also which was just the icing on the cake! Sooooo magical! Worth every penny and more"
