Showmen have voted to bring the historic Hoppings Fun Fair back to Newcastle after reaching an agreement about rent and pitch terms.
The Hoppings Fun Fair will be back this summer spelling joy for thousands of revellers.
Showmen voted to return after ironing out disagreements over rent and pitch terms with Newcastle City Council.
The 130-year-old event is Europe’s largest travelling funfair and attracts thousands of people from across the North East every June.
Wet weather in the lead up to last year’s event also damaged the land making it unlikely that the event would have gone ahead, despite the ensuing row.
“Everybody is happy.”
The Hoppings Fair starts Friday June 20 – June 28
