Kite Festival and Historic Vehicle Show -

Organiser Ray Munden

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 scattered around the edge 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 one of our visitors to a previous year’s Kite Festival. You’ll get a better flavour of the event than mere words can convey! 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.
