Kite Festival

…AND SEND IT SOARING!

 

Bedford Borough is preparing for its 13th Annual Kite Festival on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th June between 10am and 5pm in Russell Park. The event, which is free to attend and open to all, is hosted by Bedford Borough Council.

 

Each year, approximately 40,000 people gather for the occasion which sees Russell Park jam-packed with food stalls and entertainment.

 

Cllr Sarah-Jayne Holland, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture said: “This event grows in momentum each time and it is now very well-established. People have this in their diaries for months in advance.”

 

Kites will be showcased 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 programme throughout the weekend will feature kites never seen before in the U.K and childrens’ and adults’ workshops in the kite marquee.
