I decided to travel to Newcastle to visit Europe’s largest travelling funfair, The Hoppings. It takes place at the Town Moor in the North of the city. It is meant to feature over 700 rides but doesn’t or didn’t when I went,
I started at the fortune tellers and drifted past the twenty Gipsey Rose Lea caravans before finding the ‘grand daughter of ‘Gypsey Rose Lea’ I negotiated a single palm fee (£5) to shoot her. I said it was slightly awkward but she said that she had noticed my aura was OK,
The rest of the funfair was slightly underwhelming and didn’t have enough visitors.
