The FREE annual Catch The Wind Kite Festival is held all weekend long along Morecambe Promenade in mid July every year.

At low tide, along the expansive sand flats by The Midland Hotel you'll find an impressive range of huge professional display kites, colourfully soaring in the sky.

Fun for All

Anyone who wishes to fly their kite can do so too and there are many smaller beaches you can launch from.

Some of the local shops have basic kites to buy for just a few pounds and these are great to fly - simple and on long lines.

Festival Events

The Kite Festival is the main attraction, though you'll find a large number of supporting events such as at The Platform Stage where live music bands play throughout the day, and workshops taking place in marquees inside the Platform building.
