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 24 July | 11.15am - 1.15pm
Wednesday 7 August | 11.30am – 1pm and 2pm – 3.30pm
Wednesday 14 August | 11.30am – 1pm and 2pm – 3.30pm
Saturday 24 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
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!
Join us at Boyn Grove Park (Punt Hill) for our very first Community Kite Festival on Sunday 1 September between 1pm - 4pm. It's free to attend!
Bring your kite creations, pre-owned or shop bought kites and join our team to fly them on the hill. Everyone is welcome, with or without a kite!
As well as all the kite flying fun, the afternoon will include kite making, food from local vendors and a bar.
So head on down, enjoy the spectacle and celebrate with the community! Click here to visit the Community Kite Festival event page.

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.
