Turners Funfairs – the North East’s Premier Funfair Provider
Keith Turner and Sons were the operators of the Spanish City (fun park) at Whitley Bay from 1994 until it’s closure. This major attraction was founded in 1910 and became a well known landmark, both in the local area and nationally. Upon it’s closure the council officers of Whitley Bay acknowledged the important role of the fairground and decided to institute a traveling fair on The Links to compensate for the loss of Spanish City. It is a matter of great pride to us that they turned to Keith Turner & Sons to provide this amenity on their behalf, recognising our professionalism and commitment.
Keith Turner and Sons organise and supply many of the large funfairs in the North East of England. As the corporate company also incorporates Imperial Amusements, Spanish City Funfairs and also retains and trades under the name of Spanish City.
We are proud to be members of the Showmen’s Guild of Great Britain, the governing body of the traveling showman. Keith Turner has had the honour of serving the Showmen’s Guild as chairman. We are also members of the Chamber of Commerce and the Cramlington branch of the Round Table for which Keith Turner has also had the honour of being the President.
We are more than happy to discuss your requirements and work in close contact with any local authorities, corporate events organisers or individual party planners. We also welcome the input of local authority safety and regulatory departments in order to allow us to provide you with a safe and first class funfair for which we are renowned.
The attractions shown on on our website are just a few, we can of course supply many more from the sedate, to the ultimate thrill seekers attraction. We also supply mobile catering facilities including all the traditional fairground favourites of hot dogs, toffee apples, candy floss etc.
