HOPPINGS TO HOST STREET FOOD VILLAGE…
Posted on June 13th 2022 by Whats on Northeast
The annual Hoppings will return to the city’s Town Moor after a two year absence, with more than 450 rides, stalls and attractions.
And now organisers have revealed that for the first time, this year’s event will also include Feast Street, which will have a number of gourmet street food stalls along with a sitting area under a giant stretch tent.
Feast Street will be situated at Forsyth Path, the area from Forsyth Road which leads on to the moor.
This year is the first time that the Hoppings has been run by Crow Events, one of the UK’s biggest fairground operators which has been organising events since 1865.
The new food area will compliment the more traditional funfair favourites including candy floss and burgers, ensuring that visitors will not miss out on their much-loved treats.
Visitors can enjoy food from stalls including Acropolis Greek cuisine, fish and chips, Gourmet Grill and a number of dessert options such as churros and doughnuts, with a number of other vendors also lined up to take part.
Feast Street will also include a licensed bar, which will operate a Challenge 25 policy and photo ID may be required, with drinks only available for those who are eating.
The fair offers a range of attractions for all ages, from family-friendly rides to white knuckle experiences for thrill seekers.
Ryan Crow of Crow Events said his family were delighted to be operating the 140 year old fair.
“The Hoppings is one of the most important dates on the North East calendar and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring it back after it was cancelled during the pandemic,” he said.
“There is so much for everyone to enjoy this time round and we are very proud to have some of Europe’s top attractions to make it a year to remember.”
The Hoppings runs from 17 to 25 June.
