Hartlepool’s Big Weekend is being staged by W Crow Amusements in conjunction with Radio Hartlepool.

Organiser Dane Crow said: “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring the fair back to Hartlepool Marina for the Big Weekend, last year we saw people of all ages coming together and enjoying all the entertainment we had to offer.

“This year we have put even more emphasis on fun for all ages, with everything you can expect from a funfair and more.

“Our main goal when creating an event is to create something that makes memories, it makes it all worth it when we see children standing in awe taking in the magical atmosphere of the fair.”

Thursday and Friday features the funfair only from 5pm-9pm and are discount days with entry just £1. Children under one metre tall get in free. You will receive £5 worth of vouchers too.

The full event runs from noon to 9pm on Saturday and until 6pm on Sunday.

Saturday and Sunday welcome the giant kite display, stilt walkers, balloon modelling, free face painting and the opportunity for fair goers to meet their favourite Disney characters at the fairground.

The same entry charges apply.
