Hundreds of people took in the annual Newbiggin Kite Festival, held at Newbiggin Bay over Saturday and Sunday.

National and international kite flyers out on a show for young and old to enjoy.

The synchronized kite flying to music by The Pallas Family and Fusion exhibited the artist’s talents while giant lobsters, crabs and fish hang in the air, thanks to Skyartists and Sky Fantastic.

Children also got the chance to make a kite and fly it thanks to workshops hosted kite maker Becky Poxon, from North Yorkshire.
