The Tenth annual Kite Festival returns to Russell Park!

As part of the Great Summer in Bedford Borough, the International Bedford Kite Festival returns to Russell Park on the 2nd and 3rd June!

 

Now in its tenth year, the festival will this year take on a royal theme and will welcome talent from across the world as kites of all shapes and sizes take to the skies above Russell Park across the weekend.

 

In addition to the kites, there is plenty on offer to keep everyone entertained with the crafts marquee, a wide selection of shopping available at the various stalls, entertainment, live music and of course the chance to fly your own kite in the public arena!

 

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “Now in its tenth year, the Kite Festival is a superb free event for the whole family and attracts thousands of people down to Russell Park and the Embankment area.

 

“We are looking forward to welcoming kite flyers from across the world once again, including Australia, Bali, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Thailand and Indonesia.

 

“The Kite Festival is one part of a great summer in Bedford Borough and kicks off a bumper Jubilee Weekend at Russell Park and the Embankment with a music festival on Monday and the ‘It’s a Knockout’ style competition on Tuesday.

 

“So come down to Russell Park on the Jubilee weekend, enjoy the great fun and entertainment on offer and help get a great summer in Bedford Borough underway in style!”

 

There will also be a huge range of events taking place across the borough all weekend and we will be listing as many as we can in our ‘What’s On’ guide which is available on the Bedford Borough Council website at: http://www.bedford.gov.uk/whats_on.aspx. If you know of any events taking place then you can let us know by emailing proffice@bedford.gov.uk
