About Club Hub

Tessa Robinson – Founder and Director

things to do with kidsHello, my name is Tessa Robinson. I graduated from Kent Stage Academy of Performing Arts in 2013 where I studied Musical Theatre for two years. Having gained a lot of experience appearing in short films, feature films, commercials, pantomimes, and Theatre in Education tours I decided to create “Tessa’s Jazz Hands”. As I wanted to start up a project that I felt passionate about. At the time I found it really difficult to advertise my kids club to the local community. All my pupils were coming through word of mouth. I didn’t have the money to spend on advertising in local magazines which is where my idea for Club Hub came about. What if there was a directory where parents could input their location, child’s age, and interest, and a list of results for children’s activities and things to do with kids would come up in mile order?

In 2016 I decided to enter Ideas Britain’s #InSport Competition (a dragon’s den style app) where I took second place. I was able to develop my idea with their mentors and start to create a website and social media pages which is when Dorset Tech got in touch. They offered to create my website and app for an amazing price. In August 2016 Club Hub the UK went live on the App Store, Google Play, and on the Web.

Hi all. My name is Kelly and I work for Club Hub UK as a Freelance Social Media Manager. I have been a huge supporter of ClubHub UK since they first started and it was often my go-to place to find great clubs to attend with my two girls when they were little. Fast forward 6 years and my two are now 6 and 9 and instead of being a stay at home Mum, I am now a Freelance Social Media Manager looking after a number of companies alongside being a writer and Press Reviewer, running Small House Big Trips, a Midlands Based Days Out review site. Looking at restaurants and fun things for families to do – many of which I find out about via Club Hub. I love to run Small House Big Trips socials for local mums in the Midlands. Giving mum’s a chance to make new friends.

I started working for Club Hub in May 2022 and am thoroughly enjoying it. Tessa is an absolute pleasure to work for. Allowing me the flexibility to do work when I can and encouraging me to do less during school holidays and bank holidays. You don’t find many bosses like that!
