4+5 Aug: Kite Festival 2018

Lots of volunteer roles available

Let's Go Fly a Kite

Following on from the success of last year’s Kite Festival, they are back for two days in 2018. Join National Trust on 4 & 5 August for some kite flying fun at Downhill Demesne, Castlerock, Co Londonderry. 

This high-flying spectacle returns for its 8th year, bigger and better than ever, offering fun for the whole family as a kaleidoscope of kites adorn the skies over this stunning coastal estate.  Topping the bill will be internationally acclaimed flying exhibitions including synchronised acrobatics and altitude sprints, whilst an array of animals and figures take to the skies, some as big as your house!

To add to the festive atmosphere there will also be specialty food stalls, local crafts, hot and cold refreshments, inflatables, helicopter rides, a quad train, petting farm and more!
