Sunderland Live have announced the return of The North East Funfair to Herrington Country Park this summer.

The largest fun fair in the North East is set to once again delight visitors with a colourful range of rides and games when it returns to Sunderland from the 15-25 August.

Chris Alexander, Chief Operating Officer at Sunderland Live said: “After last year’s success we are thrilled to be able to bring this event back to Sunderland. We have taken great care to ensure that the fair takes place during the school summer holidays this year to give everyone plenty of chances to enjoy what promises to be a great family fun day out.”

Colin Noble of Nobles Funfair also commented: “We are looking to build on the event on an annual basis and have bespoke sponsorship opportunities available.”

The fair’s opening times are confirmed as 2-9pm Monday- Thursday, 2-10pm Friday and Saturday, 2-8pm Sunday and 1-9pm on Bank Holiday Monday.

  1. This was a really good tober last year in lieu of the Hoppings not taking place in Newcastle. I live in Newcastle and will again visit the Sunderland site. it seems like a good idea to have the event in August and hope it will be an even bigger and better event than last year, which had a good assortment of big rides, though only one Waltzer.
