Â What a great weekend we had at this years festival! Â A very English affair, this event has been described by some of the international guests as a perfect English Garden Party with kites.
Saturday had the best of the weather with great displays by all the kite fliers. Â Basingstoke Kite Festival manages to have a great family feel with all the invited guests working as one team to create a great show.
This year was no exception with all the fliers helping each other meaning the sky was never empty. Â We were delighted to get the opportunity to fly the Sode kites by Janneke Groen; Kelvin Woods’ butterflies and Nick James’ beautiful angels.
The weather on Sunday was a little more challenging with very light winds in the more and the odd rain shower in the after noon. Â We managed to be the ones out flying when the rain came down in buckets. Â Still, we managed to keep the commentary team entertained even if everyone else had run for cover!
Can’t wait until next years event. Â Many thanks to the Loddon Valley Kite Fliers for their hard work in creating such a great event.
