Hull Fair confirms dates and attractions for 2021
Dates have been announced for the Hull Fair this year after the annual event had to be cancelled last autumn.
Since the organisers’ tentative plans were declared in June this year, dates have now been confirmed for the event which is set to run between Friday 8 October and Saturday 16 October.
However, the event will not be running on Sunday 10 October.
Many stalls and attractions will make their return for adults and children alike, including rollercoasters, big wheels, games, toys and food.
Hull City Council‘s leader, Councillor Daren Hale, said: “Hull Fair, along with all the city’s major events, was sorely missed last year, so we’re delighted that it is able to return in 2021.
“I know we will all be looking forward to experiencing the exciting atmosphere and those familiar sights, sounds and smells.
“While the national changes to restrictions have made it possible for the fair to go ahead, we should remember Coronavirus is still in circulation and we should take the same precautions we do day-to-day.
“With that in mind, we will be advising visitors to the event to consider using alternative entrances into the fairground and visiting the fair mid-week when it is usually quieter.”
Deputy Leader and Chair of Hull Health and Wellbeing Board Cllr Hester Bridges said: “While safety precautions are no longer mandatory, all those involved in organising the fair […] have pledged to take additional precautions wherever possible, including additional cleansing regimes on rides and equipment.
“Hand sanitiser will be available for visitors and all Hull City Council events staff will be encouraged to wear face masks to protect each other.
“In the run-up to the fair, we will continue to run pop-up vaccination and no-symptom testing clinics, focusing on areas where uptake is lower.
“Community is at the heart of the fair and by taking all the precautions we can, we’re able to protect each other.”
