The Hoppings Funfair

Newcastle's best-loved summer fair is on hold for another year and aims to return in 2022. Please check back for dates.

A spokesperson said:

"The organisers of the Hoppings have taken the very difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Hoppings as a consequence of the Covid pandemic and the associated impacts.

"The event was initially postponed from its usual date at the end of June and rescheduled to take place at the end of August, in the hope that the effects of the pandemic would have been largely resolved, however following monitoring and review of the ongoing issues it has been assessed that it will not be practical to hold an event which would be in keeping with traditions and expectations of this iconic event.

"We know how disappointing this is, but we’re sure everyone will understand why this decision has been made.

The Hoppings is a firm favourite in the annual Geordie event calendar and was greatly missed in 2020 and 2021 when it was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Hoppings is billed as Europe's biggest and best travelling funfair with 300 rides and attractions and has become a regular feature on the North East's summer entertainment calendar since it first began in 1882.

A regular favourite with families and visitors across the North East and with nearly 140 years history in Newcastle, The Hoppings is a brilliant day out filled with thrills and spills on Newcastle's Town Moor. Let's hope it doesn't rain during The Hoppings this August!

Watch out for the return of thrilling rides, such as AIR, Extreme, Waltzers and Wild Mouse sure to make even the bravest dare devils scream. There are rides for children including helter-skelters and cup and saucer rides and fairground rides for thrill-seekers.
