Kite Festival

The Bedford International Kite Festival

 

The 9th Bedford International Kite Festival returns to Russell Park on Saturday 4th-Sunday 5th June 2011.

Following the success of the International Kite Festivals the event will once again take place again in Russell Park over the weekend of the 4th & 5th June 2011.

 

As in previous festivals the event will showcase kites from the four corners of the globe including America, Canada, Japan, China, Germany, France Holland and Belgium as well as flyers from across the UK. The International guests will also participate in and run a number of workshops in local schools and community groups prior to the event. The programme throughout the weekend will feature kites never seen before in the UK and children’s and adults workshops in the kite marquee.

 

The festival has the unique ability to engage and enable all ages to take part; anyone can fly a kite. A special arena for members of the public to fly their own or made in the workshop kites will also be onsite. Based on the 2010 attendance, we expect approximately 30,000 spectators to attend over the weekend.

 

Alongside the various demonstrations in the arena will be a whole host of other attractions, food and drink, entertainment, music and kite stalls specialising in kite equipment, clothes and other accessories. Opening times for the festival are from 10am both days to 6pm on Saturday and a 5pm on Sunday.
