What is it?
All the Fun of the Fair at the Discovery Museum will chart the history of Newcastle’s much-loved Hoppings fair, first held on the Town Moor as a Temperance Fair in 1882.
From the involvement of the Showmen’s Guild to the memories of generations of Hoppings patrons, All the Fun of the Fair will explore the history and development of The Hoppings in a colourful, hands-on setting.
Play with the unique collection of 50 vintage coin-operated amusement machines, discover ‘what the butler saw’, perfect your pinball skills, and even find out your fortune.
