Streatham Kite Day

Sled KiteWe’ve just held the 13th annual Streatham Kite Day. This was probably the best one ever. We had wonderful weather, the wind was good (enough) and we had very large crowds – maybe as many as 5,000 people over the course of the day. Sky Symphony put on three great shows, Carl Robertshaw flew some amazing solo routines, the trick flyers were great to watch and Andrew Beattie flew a large Manta, Tiger, Teddy…and Bob Colover flew for the first time in the arena. On the Saturday before the kite festival I helped out at a kite making workshop at the local school where children as young as five made kites from the plans on this website (the one in the photo was made by a six year old girl).
