HOPPING MAD: Excitement is brewing as the Hoppings announce summer dates in Newcastle

Though optimistic about this years event, they are understandably approaching with caution, as Boris Johnson had previously mentioned, the dates for lifting restrictions aren't set in stone, and are dependant on the reduction of coronavirus cases and hospital admissions. I spoke to Kris Longshaw at Crow events who have taken over organising this highlight in the North East's calendar.
