State Member for Wallsend, Ms Sonia Hornery MP, is calling on everyone to come along to the annual Wallsend Winter Fair, this Sunday.

The Wallsend Winter Fair will be held on Sunday 13 August between 9am and 3pm, where the suburb’s main street will come alive with a grand parade, stalls and performances.

The Wallsend Winter Fair brings generations together to support local business, market stalls, community groups, charities, schools, sporting groups, local entertainers, talent schools and more.

The day commences at 9am with the Grand Parade which is always well supported by entrants and the thousands of people that line the Parade route early in the morning to cheer on the many groups and organisations the event supports.
