PAST EVENTS – 2022
- CHILDREN’S FESTIVAL WITH KITES- Saturday, 2nd July 2022
Once again saw the hugely successful return of Walmer Town Council’s Children’s Festival with Kites held on Saturday, 2nd July.
Councillor Mrs Marguerite Beard-Gould, chairman of the Council’s Events Committee expressed how successful this years event had been attracting approximately 4,000 people. “This event has developed yearly and become increasingly popular (unfortunately not being held for the last two year’s due to Covid restrictions). The addition this year of Deal Music and Arts – bringing along the fabulous Rebecca Robinson and the Railway Swing Band and The Junk Orchestra as well as the brilliant Kent Kite Flyers; a circus skills workshop; face painting and children’s craft lessons created a fabulous free event for local families to enjoy.”
Councillors from the Town Council were present to make and lend out kites to children attending so that they could learn for themselves the joys of kite flying.
Kent Kite Flyers who provide the giant kites including a giant Crab, Manta Ray and teddy bears were present and once again provided a spectacular display along the beach.
We look forward to bringing this event back again next year.
