- Tyne Tees
Organisers of the Hoppings in Newcastle have announced the fair will open to the public on Sunday 24 June at 1.30 pm.
It had been due to start on Friday, but was postponed after heavy rain caused the Town Moor site to become muddy and waterlogged.
The event claims to be the largest travelling fair in Europe, with more than 100 rides and attractions. It dates back to 1882, and this year is only the second time in its history that the start has been delayed.
