The Hoppings is an annual fun fair which takes place during the last week of June on Newcastle's Town Moor.

In previous years, the Lord Mayor of the City has opened the festivities. However, in 2011, the Lord Mayor shared the opening ceremony duties with the winner of the Evening Chronicle's Hoppings competition, Miss Lucy Jamieson, aged 6.

This video chronicles Lucy's adventures on the day.
