Hull’s annual spectacular, Hull Fair, is one of the largest travelling fairs in Europe providing locals with both enjoyment and nourishment with its fairground favourites, mouth-watering food and flashing lights.
The fair is the most popular event in the city’s calendar attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors each October, so you can imagine the people’s disappointment when it was announced that Hull Fair 2020 won’t take place due to coronavirus – the second time in its 742-year history!
But lovers of the fair don’t have to miss out, despite the fair not going ahead, food lovers can still get some of their Hull Fair foodie traditions. With Hull Fair food being almost as popular as the rides, this year some of the old favourites have rustled up something a bit different for the locals…
Bob Carvers is always a popular stop for the Hull Pattie lover, but this year they’re not stopping at just offering the traditional hot favourite. For £29.95 (including delivery) you can enjoy the Bob Carver’s treat boxwhich includes:
- Wright’s Brandy Snap
- Toffee Apple
- 2 Nougates
- Sugar Dummy
- 2 Cables

… And of course the famous Bob Carvers 10 original patties
