The Hoppings
June / July 2006


Said to be Europe's largest travelling fun fair, the Hoppings was founded in 1882 as a Temperance Festival and takes place on Newcastle's Town Moor each year during the last week (actually the last ten days) in June.
The name is probably derived from hoppen the Anglo-Saxon word for fair or dance.
These photos were taken over two days, the 29th June and the 1st July 2006
