Following discussions this evening, Hull City Council and Superstadium Management Company (SMC) have come to an agreement regarding access to Hull Fair from Argyle Street.
The security gate will now be opened during the following hours throughout the duration of the fair:
Sat 7 October 2017 - 9pm until midnight
Sun 8 October 2017 - Closed
Mon 9 October - Fri 13 October 2017 - 4pm until midnight
Sat 14 October 2017 - 2.00pm until midnight
SMC have confirmed that the security gate will remain closed at all other times.
With SMC’s agreement, the land owned by SMC will be policed during these hours by the multi-agency team who will carry out these roles as part of their responsibilities across the wider Hull Fair event.
Humberside Police will also continue to monitor all access points around the fairground throughout the duration of the fair from a public safety aspect.
Our responsibility and priority is to ensure that the thousands of people who attend and enjoy Hull Fair are safe, and feel safe.
