Kite Day Sunday 2nd September 2018

Now in its 20th year – Kite Day returns on Sunday 2nd September

A great FREE event for all Streathamites, Kite fans and those who want a fun day out from further afield. It has everything…music, food…and kites!

Volunteers will be needed so if you want to join in  – please let us know so we can place you accordingly.

Planning ahead:  How to get to Streatham Common

By Bus – 50, 60, 109, 249, 250, 255.

By Train – Streatham or Streatham Common stations.

By Bike – A23 Streatham High Road – ample space for cycle parking around the common.

By Car – Not recommended. Parking restrictions will be in place and the area is already densely populated. Lets help the environment and travel by public transport instead. Do your bit for greening our City

 

10/04/18: ATTENTION! STREATHAM KITE DAY POSTPONED! Serious ground damage to Common means the ground will not be in good shape for the big day in just one months time & this has meant we needed to move dates.

The ground in the lower Common has suffered much damage this year due to the combined effort of extreme weather conditions & churn caused by heavy vehicles from a prior event in March.

Although the ground may dry out in time, there is too much to risk with around 5000 people expected to visit the Kite Day – any regrowth would be crushed and so the ground would again need repair.

We thank all the volunteers and organisers who have put time in to working towards the 13th May, but we did not want to risk the health of the Common itself. We were unable to place Kite Day before September due to the Commons planned diary of events, and commitments of expert Kite flyers that ensure our Kite Day is now a key event on the National & International Kite festival circuit.
