The Hoppings Funfair Returns For 2019!
This family-friendly funfair has made history in our city. Pop down for a whizz on the waltzers or a ride on the big wheel this June!
We’re getting serious about summer in Newcastle, and we just can’t help but get excited about all of the fun things going on in the city this season…
The Hoppings is back for another summer spectacular bringing family fun and fairground rides to the Town Moor once again! The best-loved Geordie funfair first came to Newcastle 136 years ago as a counterattraction to the boozy goings-on at the annual Race Week at nearby Newcastle Racecourse.
In the following 50 years, the rides and attractions we all know and love today were gradually introduced to create what is now one of Europe’s largest travelling fairs.
It’s back in the city for another year and we can’t wait to check out our favourite rides and some new attractions on the Town Moor.
So gather your gang and get your umbrellas at the ready (because everyone knows it always rains when the biggest and best travelling funfair comes to the Toon)!
Get the whole family together and get down to the busy and buzzy Town Moor from Friday 21 June until Sunday 29 June for guaranteed good times with over 300 rides, including the return of many traditional attractions!
A diary date for the whole family - whatever the weather may be, we advise you to make a day of it this June!
