Club of Royston
President: Martin Berry
This   annual   event   is   held   on   Therfield   Heath   at   Royston   and   is   the   Clubs   “Flagship”   event   of   the   year   bringing   in   thousands   of   spectators from   the   area.     It   is   always   held   on   the   first   Sunday   of   August   and   this   year   it   is   being   held   on   Sunday   2nd   August   2020   between   10.30 and 4.30. This   is   a   truly   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   or   will   be   able   to   make   kites   with   their   own   designs.     And there is the highly popular Teddy Bear drop (weather permitting. There   are   always   fairground   rides   and   a   bouncy   castle   to   entertain   the   children.     There   are   always   loads   of   stalls   selling   various   goods all around the perimeter of the site, plus many food stalls and ice cream vans to satisfy the hungriest of people. Have   a   look   at   the   video   on   the   left which   was   created   by   a   visitor   to   one of   our   earlier   Kite   Festivals.     You’ll   get a flavour of the event from this. Once again the Kite Festival will have the added attraction of the Historic Vehicle Show alongside. This show, which proves very popular at the Royston May Fayre, will have a range of interesting vehicles of all types and ages for your inspection and perhaps to bring back some memories of long gone vehicles you may have owned yourself at one time (and now wish you’d kept). There is also a variety of vehicles that children love, such as army jeeps and a verteran tractor which they are allowed to clamber over. If you wish to enter your vehicle in this year’s show then please download the brochure here. Do give the Kite Festival a try this year. The entry fee is provisionally £4 for over 14s and all children under that age are free and there is plenty of car parking which is also free. The Kite Festival is a charitable event and all proceeds after costs this year will be donated to the President’s charity. Click here to enquire about stalls at the Kite Festival.

It’s going to be great fun and there are great prizes.   Click Here for details.
