Hello 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 and 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 who offered to create my website and app for an amazing price. In August 2016 Club Hub UK went live on the App Store, Google Play and on the Web.
It now receives over 200,000 views every month and has thousands of Kids Clubs, baby classes and Children’s Activities registered offering toddler activities, indoor activities for kids, gymnastics classes, things to do with kids, indoor play areas and kids activity boxes available to order online. So if you’re searching for “kids activities near me or baby classes” then our resources can help.
I have won numerous awards including the #SBS Award with Theo Paphitis. The #Queenof Award with The Royal Connection. The #WOW Award with Jacqueline Gold and the #SmartSocial Award with MarketMe. I have also been a finalist in the Best Business Woman Awards and been a Judge for the Wales Children’s Activities and Services Awards.
