Royston Kite Festival

Royston Kite Festival

The annual kite festival organised by the town’s Rotary Club – is back this year, at Therfield Heath on Sunday 7th August between 10.30am and 4.30pm.

Join the thousands of spectators for a truly family day out to see a huge variety of kites being flown by organised and professional teams. Children, too, will be joining in with their own kites, many of them made to their own designs. Also for children there will be a variety of fairground rides as well as the famous teddy bear parachute drop.
Rotary is inviting dozens of stallholders for the day selling a variety of goods, and there will be a choice of food stalls and ice cream vans.

Alongside the festival, the annual Historic Vehicle Show will also be making a return to the Heath. The show, organised by Rotarian Ray Munden, attracts families from all over the region to see the classic vehicles. Here, too, there are special interests for children, from Army Jeeps to a veteran tractor.

The festival is a charity event which donates thousands of pounds annually to good causes. This year the proceeds after costs will go to two charities, Hope and Homes, which assists families in need, chosen by Royston Rotary President Peter Mitton, and the Hertfordshire Mind Network, supporting positive mental health and wellbeing across the county, selected by the past President Steve Higginbotham.

Entry is £4 per person for all over 14s, with no charge for children under that age. There is extensive free car parking.
