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.

Please note this is a Drop-In Workshop:

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!
