We are very sorry to announce that due to severe weather warnings that have been issued by the MET Office for the weekend of 10th and 11th August, we have to cancel the St Annes International Kite Festival.

This decision has not been made lightly, and following discussions with the organisers and kite fliers, the health and safety risk is simply too great to go ahead.

We sincerely apologise and hope that you will join us for the rearranged kite festival on the 6th, 7th and 8th September.

Further details to follow.
