Press release .. We are working with relevant experts and authorities to closely monitor the weather forecast for this weekend’s International Kite Festival. While we and the Kite Society are committed to running as much of a programme as possible if conditions safely permit, it is becoming increasingly likely that the expected adverse weather could impact our event, especially on Saturday.
Currently there will be Sports Kites flying on Saturday and Sunday's programme of kite flying remains unchanged. Unfortunately there won't be our usual trade stalls and entertainment to accompany the kite flying this year; although it is planned that catering concessions will still be onsite. I'm sure you will appreciate that the safety of the public and our participants and stakeholders is of the utmost importance and we appreciate everyone's patience and understanding.
