Riverside Community Health Project and Action for Children are working in partnership to deliver and host Free Family Festivals at Hodgkin Park, Benwell, NE4 8QP as part of Newcastle's Best Summer Ever 2023!

The events will be held on Wednesday 2nd, 9th and 16th August from 11.00am to 2.00pm and will be free to attend for all families.

Local organisations will also be at the events to share information to families about services that are available in the local area.

Each week there will be lots of different activities to get involved in including: animal interaction, sports, games, Under 5's area, Inflatables, Carnival Rides and loads more!

A free packed lunch will be provided however these are limited so feel free to bring you own to avoid disappointment.

A food truck and Ice cream van will be available at each event however these will be at a cost to families and any money made will be put back into Riverside to ensure we are able to provide more free opportunities to families!

There is no booking required for these events however please note that there will be a designated area for everyone to sign in.

Each week we will be holding a prize draw with names picked at random from the signing in sheets. Three lucky families will have the chance to win either an Air Fryer, £20 asda voucher or a voucher for 10 free swimming lessons at Elswick Pool. To be in with a chance of winning one of theses prizes please remember to sign in at the events.
