Therfield, Royston SG8 9FB
EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO LATEST GOVERNMENT RESTRICTIONS
After more than a year of lockdowns and social distancing, the festival is expected to attract thousands of visitors. There will be a huge variety of kites flown by organised and professional teams, as well many other attractions, including fairground rides, tombola, a bouncy castle and dozens of stalls selling a variety of goods as well as ice cream, food and drink.
Children in particular will find it a great day out. They are invited to bring kites to fly in the main arena and they will also be helped to make their own kites on site.
This year’s kite festival will have the added attraction of the historic vehicle show, which is held alongside on the Heath. There will be interesting motors of all types and ages to bring back memories of times gone by. Look out for a range of exhibits particularly attractive to children – from army Jeeps to a veteran tractor on which they can clamber.
Stephen added: “Do come along and give our event a try. Why not bring along a picnic hamper and folding chairs and make a day of it? The entry fee is planned to be only £4 and children aged under 14 are free – as is parking. Also, be assured that we will adhere to any Covid restrictions which might still apply in August.”
