Visitor information – what you need to know…
The 2021 St Anne’s Kite Festival will take place in September. Joined by kite teams from across the UK and in partnership with kite fliers SmileFactor10, the event will make the skies above St Anne’s seafront awash with colour on Friday, Saturday and Sunday as fabulous display kites take to the air on the beach adjacent to the pier.
PLEASE NOTE – The 2021 event will look different than previous years. For reasons of safety and social distancing, there will be no Friday night illuminated evening with fireworks (we hope to resume this in 2022). The event will be spaced out much wider than in previous years to allow for plenty of social distancing and there will be no fairground or additional trade stalls on the Promenade so as to not cause bottlenecks and queues, so if you’re looking for refreshments you are very much encouraged to visit the town center or bring your own picnic.
Weather permitting, the event promises a thrilling and thoroughly enjoyable day out for young and old alike. Timings for this year are as follows:
- Friday 3rd – 12 noon onwards, once the arena builds are complete and the area is safe for flying to start – set up day
- Saturday 4th – 11am to 5pm
- Sunday 5th – 11am to 4pm
Please note the event is entirely weather dependent and the planned programme may be changed without notice, for safety reasons
