Gateshead Family Funday 2024


Gateshead Family Fun Day is an annual event that has been running for well over 40 years starting off initially as the Rugby Club’s garden Fete. However, over the last 5 years or so we have made a big effort to integrate the event into the wider Low Fell and Gateshead community and attract a much wider audience. This has proved a huge success and we usually attract a great number of visitors over the day (high numbers especially if the weather is good).

Gateshead Beer & Music Festival
Fri 3rd May to Sun 5th May 2024
Doors open 2pm Fri & 12pm Sat/Sun

Tickets on sale soon via the Gateshead RFC Website.

Gateshead Beer & Music Festival first started off in 2010 with the emphasis on creating a great local community festival. Moving forward nine years the festival has grown into an event that is loved both locally and nationally, whilst maintaining its community beliefs. In 2016 we were delighted to be named as a Finalist in the Tyne & Wear Lifestyle awards – Best live experience.

The festival organisers pride themselves on striving to improve the festival year on year, this year there are no exceptions with the introduction of our Cocktail Bar, in addition to Craft Can Bar, Cider bar, Premium lagers and a new food area.

This year’s festival incorporates the SIBA North-East Regional competition, featuring beers from Berwick -upon-Tweed to Sheffield. As always we will have a great selection of Ciders that are sourced countrywide. In addition to the popular Cava bar, we will see the return of our Gin Bar and Prosecco cocktails.

From Our Sponsors

Our story began over sixty years ago and as third generation butchers, we’re immensely proud of our meaty heritage. Our family business has been serving the public with the finest meat since 1953, and along the way we’ve earned a reputation for product and service excellence, with accreditation and accolades to match.

We’ve transferred these great core values of honesty, quality and service excellence to Great British Meat Co.

We’re excited to be moving back to the future, and are once again providing meat direct to households through the Great British Meat Co. We know our grandfather would be really proud, so it’s a great way to celebrate our 60th anniversary.
