I am booked for sat and sunday, I could only be there on Monday so will have to give it a miss.

I was looking forward to it this year.

Hey that's brilliant!!

I'll be there on Sunday from midday with family in tow - so I'll look out for you!

Thanks for your kind offer of assistance - I will definitely grab you for some advice!

Thanks again :-)



I will also be there on Sunday and fly a lime/blue rev. there will be a few missing as its the basingstoke kite festival this weekend but will still be good.


In Topic: Sunderland 2011

I have been sent the following text which confirms that the event is going ahead:-

"Due to recent council efficiency measures, the events programme in Sunderland has been reviewed and developed to create a new festival in the summer of 2011. The "Sunderland Festival" (provisional title) will take place on July 2nd and 3rd 2011 at the Northern Area Playing Fields in Washington and in other venues around the city including flagship parks and seaside resorts.

The new event will have a wider remit than previous kite and friendship festivals and will focus in particular on community participation and there are plans for music concerts each evening in a big top tent on site. Kites will still play a large part of the event with an area reserved for specialist kitefliers to demonstrate, and it is hoped that kitefliers from all over the UK come to take part. Sadly, there is no money to support travel and accommodation so it is unlikely that many international kitefliers will be able to join us, although they are still welcome. The city plans to invite a small number of guest kitefliers from a selected country and in 2011, it is likely that the guest country will be the USA.
We hope that, as in previous years, free camping and parking will be available for registered kitefliers, so if you are interested in attending The Sunderland Festival, please put the dates in your diary now. I hope to be able to send out more information soon and to start registration for kitefliers as soon as possible"

The Decs have attended this event 'most' years since the team was formed so I hope that we will find a way to get there again this year.


I got the same mail and I am hoping to get there again this year

I think that Dunstable, Sunday 2nd January 2011 is the most likely venue.

Parking is one pound I think and the 'facilities' are very good. We'll have to watch the weather though!


The parking is 1.50 but you do get a voucher for 50p to spend in the centre so as long as you use it it is really 1
