Wallsend - Putting Families First

Not only is Wallsend a fascinating and community-centric town with a rich history, but it is a town focused on putting families first.


"The committee has many new faces and new ideas, and we are looking at doing lots of one-day events to help Wallsend and its business community get motivated to bring Wallsend to life," said Wayne.

"As a committee, we are very open to suggestions and ideas for what our members would like to see happening in their town".

One of the fun-filled events planned for September is the Wallsend Festival, taking place from Saturday 18 September to Saturday 25 September. This week-long family event will bring thousands of people of all generations and cultures together to support local business, market stalls, community groups, charities, schools, sporting groups, local entertainers, talent schools and more. Some of the planned events include movies in Federal Park, market days, street fashion parades, unveiling a mural, long lunches, and many more.
