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 7th August 2022 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 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. A brochure will be available soon so if you wish to enter your vehicle in this year’s show then please check back here to download it. 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.
