A KITE festival planned for Newbiggin this weekend has been postponed because of the poor weather forecast.

The Newbiggin Kite Festival has now been rescheduled for the end of the month.

The event, on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 of April will feature the Skyartists Display Team, Fusion with their Revolution Kites, and also in action will be the Pallas Family Fliers, members of the North East Kite Fliers and Josh Mitcheson.

Following the success of the festival last year, organisers say the event will be better as it brings a unique spectacle to the Church Point headland with a variety of displays.

Peter Seddon, from Newbiggin Maritime Centre, said: “This will be a fantastic free event at the seaside for all the family.”
