Free two-day kite festival to take to the skies in Bridlington

A festival with professional displays of some of the world's largest inflatable kites will soon be coming to East Yorkshire.

Hosted annually, the Bridlington Kite Festival will take place over the weekend of 18 and 19 May.

The event will have kites of all descriptions, sizes and colours and there will be aerial displays over Sewerby Fields.

There will also be food stalls, fairground rides and face painting.

As well as professional demonstrations, visitors can get involved and loan kites during supervised sessions.

Organised by the Visit East Yorkshire Events Team and in partnership with The Northern Kite Group, it will run from 10:00 until 17:00 BST on both days and is free to attend.

A land train will run between Sewerby Hall and Gardens and East Riding Leisure Bridlington every half an hour.
