From fairground rides to bands on parade – the quintessentially British summer fair and carnival season is back.
And to celebrate the season of sun, stalls, tombola and tea, we have nine archive images to get you right in the spirit of the fetes.
From the Cookson Festival to the St James RC Primary School summer fete and the Westoe Village Fair to the Jarrow Festival, we have a feast of photos for you to enjoy.
Take a look and enjoy the memories.
