Kaleidoscope of colour at Downhill Demesne Kite Festival

Join the National Trust on Sunday 5 August from 12 noon to 5pm for some kite flying fun at Downhill Demesne, Castlerock.

The high-flying spectacle will offer fun for all family as a kaleidoscope of kites of all sizes fly over the stunning coastal estate.  There will be kite performers and a wild geese parachute display.  To add to the festive atmosphere there will a kids area to make crafts, bouncy castles, exhibitors, craft and food stalls and much, much more…

Toby Edwards, National Trust Site Manager for Downhill Demesne said:

“This is Downhill’s second year holding the Kite Festival and we’re looking forward to a fantastic day out for everyone.  The festival isn’t just about watching the professionals – you can bring your own kite, make one on the day or buy one from the experts and fly it in the wonderful landscape of Downhill Demesne.   This promises to be a spectacular event full of colour and fun – so bring the family along and let’s go fly a kite.”

Festival highlights will include Wild Geese display, Blo-karting demonstrations, hot air balloon display and variety of exhibition stands.

Marvel at the amazing displays of interesting shapes, sizes and colours of kites as the experts work their magic in the sky.  Bring your own kite and enjoy a fun packed day with attractions and entertainment for all the family.

If you don’t feel like flying a kite, then why not just come and watch one of the most colourful and exciting events on the North Coast this summer.

Bring your own kite and enjoy an action packed day with attractions and entertainment for all the family.

What a great way to spend a summer day!
