The town’s biggest outdoor event will attract thousands to the Heath to see kites above Royston, admire the historic cars and enjoy the many stalls and attractions.
This is a family day out where many groups arrive with their own lightweight chairs and picnic hampers in order to see a huge variety of kites being flown by organised and professional kite flying teams. But it’s not all watching, the children have their own sessions where they bring their own kites along for flying in the main arena. There are always lots of stalls selling various goods scattered around the edge of the site plus many food stalls and ice-cream vans to satisfy the hungriest of people.
The entry fee is only £3.50 for over 14s and all children under that age are FREE. The Kite Festival is a charitable event and all proceeds this year will be donated to the President’s charity
