Kites and cars – it can only mean the 20th Hunstanton Kite Festival and Classic Car Rally.

It is being staged this Sunday on the playing fields of Smithdon School, which is on Downs Road in Hunstanton between 11am and 6pm.

This year’s festival is going to be bigger and better than ever.

For the second time The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House will benefit from the fundraising on the day.

Simon Rowe, Breakfast presenter from local prize-winning radio station KL.FM will also be at the event.

This fun event attracts thousands of locals and holidaymakers every year, raising thousands of pounds, which are used in the following year to support the local community.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the ‘Kite Fair’ as its sometimes known already has recruited 20 top kite flyers to perform in the central arena, while 250 classic cars and motorcycles’ owners have booked their spaces to display their beloved vehicles.

The indoor Craft Fair is fully booked with 75 stalls that will fill the hall at Smithdon School to capacity.

The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House has been invited to participate in the event, organised by The Rotary Club of Hunstanton & District and share in the proceeds.
