What's On at the Kite Festival

The two days of the festival will have a number of exciting and varied displays. The Theme for 2017 is "The Seven Continents" and there will be several displays showcasing kites from the different continents.   We will also have a range of other displays such as:

  • Synchronised multi line kite ballet including Championship winners 
  • Artistic kite displays
  • Giant cartoon kites
  • Quad line kite displays set to music
  • Japanese fighting kites.
  • Altitude sprint
  • Showcase of individual kite artists and fliers who are attending this year
  • Record attempt at the most 'Trilobite' kites flown at the same time.
  • .... And more.   

On site will be a number of specialist kite traders, food traders, craft stalls, and children’s entertainment.  We  were also delighted to have WORLD smallest KITE back again running their colourful FREE kite-making workshop for all ages 5-105.

A great day out for all. Even better the event continues to be free to attend.
