Get involved at Kite Making Workshops across the school holidays, then see your creation take to the sky!
The workshops are led by specialist kite makers, Community Kite Project.
In these drop-in sessions our practitioners will guide you through the process of making either the Patang Kite – the Indian Fighter Kite, or a classic Trapezoid Kite.
Make and decorate your kite to stand out in the sky at the Community Kite Festival which takes place in Boyn Grove Park on Sunday 1 September.

Wednesday 7 August | 11.30am – 1pm and 2pm – 3.30pm

Workshops are suitable for all the family and tickets are £3.50 per person.
Please note a space must be booked for every person attending the workshop, including supervising adults
Pre booking for Kite Workshops is highly recommended.
We have experienced a huge demand for tickets for these sessions this year.
If you have tickets for a workshop you are guaranteed to make a kite at the session. During each session we may have a small number of tickets available on the door but to avoid disappointment please pre book.
Our drop in sessions allow you to come down to the session at any time throughout the day – you don’t need to get there for the start of the session! So you don’t have to rush, but do make sure you leave enough time to get here, get park and get into the session!
Sessions run from 11.30am – 1pm and 2pm – 3.30pm, and at Norden Farm. You can make a kite in around 20 – 30 minutes with a bit of adult support!

Ever wondered what it would be like to sit on a polar bear's lap? Or ride on its back? Have you ever tried to give a polar bear a bath, or clear up its poo?
One night when she's fast asleep, Tilly is visited by an enormous bear. It has a big black tongue and a yawn as big as your head. But Tilly's not scared.
The story of a little girl who befriends a mischievous polar bear, this playful, funny and heart-warming tale is one of imagination and growing up.
Featuring inventive design, original music, and magical puppetry.
