22nd Streatham Kite Day
It is with great regret and disappointment that we have had to take the hard decision to postpone Streatham Kite Day 2020.
Following increased concerns about the spread of the COVID-19 virus and careful consideration of the safety of everyone involved in planning, organising and attending Streatham Kite Day – our volunteers and supporters, our attendees, our exhibitors, our partners and their volunteers and staff, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Kite Day, scheduled for 10th May 2020 on Streatham Common.
The community organising committee is not able to meet for the time being and given the uncertainty of how events will unroll in the coming weeks, we have not set a revised date. Kite Day will return to Streatham Common and we look forward to seeing you all there.
Stallholders, caterers and kite flyers will all be emailed directly regarding their bookings and payments.
In the meantime if you have any questions please use the contact details below.
