About Us

Welcome to Gateshead Mumbler!

I’m born and raised locally and mum of two little boys (aged 4 and 2). We enjoy making the most of the many weekly activities and days out the area has to offer.

There is so much to do with little people in and around Gateshead, although this information can be hard to find unless you know where to look. Initially I relied on word of mouth at various baby groups, I started keeping a list which grew and evolved until a scrap of paper on the fridge just wasn’t enough! The idea of launching a local Mumbler site appealed to me as it’s exactly the sort of thing that I want to see as a parent, an accessible and comprehensive guide to what’s on in Gateshead and more.

I hope the site is useful to families for finding weekly activities and special events in Gateshead, and for days out in and around Gateshead (including Newcastle, South Tyneside, Sunderland and Durham). Make sure to have a good look around and check out the events calendar, days out, and free activities. If I’m missing something that you think should be added please feel free to contact me, either as a parent with a recommendation or if you run a playgroup, class, attraction, event or child-related business.

You can like the Gateshead Mumbler Facebook News Page for all the latest updates, and sign up here for the e-newsletter with a roundup of activities, events and highlights from the website. We’re also on Twitter and Instagram.

So a big WELCOME to all, whether you are a local parent, carer, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or  just visiting the area…there’s something for everyone!
