The 8th annual Newbiggin by the Sea Kite Festival is back for a full weekend of watch-the-skies fun this Easter.
This particular weekend is definitely one of those events where you’d be doing everyone a disservice if you’d didn’t bung a “glorious” into your preview early on. And this free (FREE!) two-day celebration of all things kite will see members of the North East Kite Fliers Association, as well as participants from further afield, demonstrating their glorious synchronised flying skills and exhibiting a large selection of spectacular kites. There will also be children’s kitemaking workshops in the Latimer Room at Newbiggin Maritime Centre and kites on sale in the Seashore Shop if you’d like to try out your own skills. The displays can be viewed from Newbiggin Promenade or the Maritime Centre Viewing Platform. You can also see the displays from the Breakwater Café, where refreshments will be available.Newbiggin by the Sea, Saturday 20 & Sunday 21 April. facebook.com/newbiggin.centre
