HOPPING MAD: Excitement is brewing as the Hoppings announce summer dates in Newcastle

 

One of Europe's biggest travelling funfairs is making its way back to Newcastle this summer.

The Hoppings had to cancel last year's event due to the pandemic, but the team couldn't wait to start planning for 2021 as soon as the roadmap out of lockdown was revealed. Though optimistic about this years event, they are understandably approaching with caution, as Boris Johnson had previously mentioned, the dates for lifting restrictions aren't set in stone, and are dependant on the reduction of coronavirus cases and hospital admissions. I spoke to Kris Longshaw at Crow events who have taken over organising this highlight in the North East's calendar. 

 
Though usually held in June, this years event will be taking place from the 19th to the 30th of August, just in case there should be any delay in the country's easing of lockdown.
