Rides, games and stalls have started to arrive in Hull in advance of the city’s annual fair, which returns a week on Friday.

Nerve-racking roller-coasters are among the attractions set to be installed during the countdown to one of Hull’s biggest events of the year.

Walton Street’s 16-acre site is again the venue for the fair, with stalls, rides and games all due to form part of the action from Friday October 9.

Hull City Council’s safety officers have announced they are teaming up with various partners to make sure that the event is once more a safe one.

These partners include St John Ambulance, Humberside Police, Yorkshire Ambulance Service, the Yorkshire Section of the Showmen’s Guild and Humberside Fire and Rescue.

Terry Geraghty, a Hull councillor with special responsibilities for culture and leisure, says the fair is likely to attract thousands of people.

Cllr Geraghty says they will all experience the thrills, smells and lights that help to make Hull’s fair a top event. He adds that the fun could not go ahead, however, without the help of its safety partners.
