Portsmouth Kite Festival

Portsmouth Kite Festival

At the end of last month, August Bank Holiday, Southsea Common in Portsmouth held it's annual International Kite Festival.

We supported the event as we have done for the last 18 years, setting up our 30ft frontage stall and putting on a fantastic display of colourful kites for all ages and levels of ability.

Since this festival was the last one on our 2012 calendar we decided to bring a selection of our ripstop materials and also the full range of carbon fibre and fibre glass. This is really handy for us since some of our customers we only see at these events. And also it gives our new customers that we've never met, the opportunity to browse our products and have that touch and feel experience that just isn't available online.

Having dedicated one quarter of the stall to the materials and a large cutting table, we were able to get so many more kites repaired and back in the sky. Not to mention the countless re-framing jobs, most memorable of all was Alec Elliot's gigantic L.E.D covered delta. Wing span at a guess 15ft ?! It took over the entire end of the stall!
