Blyth town centre was bustling over the weekend as the annual fair pulled in the crowds.

From circus workshops to boxing sessions and fun fairs, there was a variety of entertainment over Saturday and Sunday.

The weekend was officially opened by Cory Davison, who was raising money for Sara’s Hope Foundation, and also featured Newcastle Eagles player manager Fab Flournoy and former Newcastle United star Olivier Bernard.

Event organiser Paul Taylor said: “It was a fantastic weekend which everybody enjoyed.

“I’d like to thank everybody that came along, it passed off without incident and everybody was happy, and the weather stayed wonderful as well.

“It showed Blyth in a really positive light, and showed the potential the town has.”
