Royston Charity Kite Festival and Historic Vehicle Show

See the 2017 Brochure Here      
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   6th   August   2017   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.      Those   who   have   forgotten   to   bring   their   kites   needn’t despair either because the Club sells low cost kites at the gate and the children can even make their own in the kite workshop. 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!  This   year,   for   the   first   time,   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 sent to Royston and South Cambs Homestart   If you are interested in a stall at the Festival then click here to send a message to the organisers N.B.   The   Rotary   Club   of   Royston   would   like   to   thank   John   O’Conner   Ltd    for   cutting   the   grass   that   made   it   possible   to   hold   the   Historic   Vehicle   Show alongside the Kite Festival.
