Raring2go! - the Ultimate Family Guide

Your Go-To Resource for Fun and Adventure!

A brief history of Raring2go!

Raring2go! was established in 2006 and soon after acquired by MOJO Publishing Ltd, who took it from a kitchen table business to a fully rounded franchise business and member of the British Franchise Association.

In the early 2000’s two mums with young children from Wolverhampton were increasingly frustrated that it wasn’t easier to find ideas and suggestions for local places to go and things to do for primary school age children. There was no single go-to reference guide, magazine, website or resource for them to refer to.

Their frustration grew but instead of resigning themselves to just accepting that ‘it was how it was’, they resolved to do something about it.

Soon after whilst sat around a kitchen table, the idea for Raring2go! was born and just a few months later the first edition of Raring2go! Wolverhampton hit the streets. It was an instant hit with families and success with local advertisers.

When Mojo Publishing Ltd bought Raring2go! it set about taking the business to the next level. Raring2go! had been predominantly a print based business with only a tentative toe in the water of the digital space. There was a website, but it was flat, uninspiring and limiting. Mojo’s vision was to develop an online platform to complement the magazines and present a multichannel option to all Raring2go! users and stakeholders. Mojo’s objective was to make Raring2go! the quick reference, Go-To Magazine and Website guide for families.

Today Raring2go! is the GO-TO GUIDE FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILD

It is still a handy local magazine filled with inspiration for parents and their children aged between 0 and 12, but now it is also a vibrant, informative and engaging interactive website.

There are now over 100 Raring2go! editions operating across the UK and we are growing. Four times a year our amazing franchise partners produce their magazines and distribute on average 13,500 copies each in their local areas. Our online reach is growing too and our digital editions are seen, interacted with and engaged with by thousands more.

Each edition of Raring2go! is packed full of family friendly editorial, events listings, quirky features as well as highly relevant family facing advertising. This advertising is aimed at informing parents of the wide range of activities available to them on their own doorstep and much further a field across the UK.

Our website provides a national focus and pools together all the local content for all visitors to enjoy irrespective of where they are or where they will be.
