Crow Events’ Ryan Crow said: ““The Hoppings is a North East institution. For many, our arrival on the Town Moor really is a signal that the summer holidays are just around the corner and everyone has their own, special memories of Hoppings from years gone by.

“Over the next few weeks we’ll be announcing some spectacular and hair raising rides and attractions, new for this year, but the Hoppings will, as always, have far more besides.

“So, whether you want to try out a new, hair-raising ride, have a go at hook a duck or simply enjoy traditional carousels there is something for everyone.

“And the return of last year’s hugely successful Feast Street and a programme of fantastic live music, means everyone really can enjoy a full day out.”
