The Hartlepool Show and Horticultural Festival will arrive in town next weekend - and you're certainly looking forward to it.

Organised by Hartlepool Borough Council, this year's show will hark back to the good old days by adding a "modern horticultural twist" to the weekend's entertainment.

And these changes prompted some of you to take a trip down memory lane to the shows of yesteryear, held at Grayfields.

Speaking to the Mail, Coun Kevin Cranney, chair of the council's regeneration services committee, said: "I’m sure many people will fondly remember the old Hartlepool Shows which used to take place every year at Grayfields.

“We aim to re-create all of the fun of that event and much more, and we hope people turn out in force on both days."
