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."
