21st Streatham Common Kite Day
The 21st Streatham Common Kite Day, will return on Sunday 12th May 2019 from 11:00 to 17:00. The free event will be packed full of spectacular kite flying displays and is an opportunity for everyone to go fly a kite.
We will have another brilliant line-up of kite flyers this year who will dazzle and amaze with acrobatic displays or astound with their huge static kites.
More information will be coming soon.
Kite Day is not just for the experts – the organisers encourage people to bring their own kites to fly. If you don’t own a kite, why not make one or buy one on site?
