Royston Charity Kite Festival and Historic Vehicle Show

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   usually   held   on   the   first   Sunday   of   August   and   this   year   it   is   being   held   on   Sunday   5th   August   2018 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.  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   the   2016   Kite   Festival.      You’ll get   a   better   flavour   of   the   event   than mere words can convey!  Following   on   from   its   successful   introduction   last   year   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).  Albert Sharpe will also be bringing his tractor which children love to clamber over. Do   give   the   Kite   Festival   a   try   this   year.      The   entry   fee   is   only   £3   for   over   14s   and   all   children   under   that   age   are   FREE.      The   Kite   Festival is a charitable event and all proceeds this year will be donated to the President’s charity.
