Gateshead Family Fun Day is an annual event that has been running for well over 30 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).
Although the rugby club is open all day the Fun Day runs from 1pm until 5pm-ish, followed by live music until 8pm.
We will have face painting and glitter art, as well as craft activities from Kiln Pottery & The creation station.
There will be a great selection of new side stalls and games for you to try your luck at, as well as our popular book stall, bric -a – brac and tombola.
We will also be bring back our delicious BBQ stall, Gin bar and beach bar.
