The Bedford International Kite Festival will once again be returning to Russell Park over the weekend of the 1 & 2 June 2019.
This year the event will take on a unique format, with the brand new Bedford Festival of Motoring taking place on the beautiful Embankment alongside the Kite Festival.
The weekend will feature kite-flying displays with kites never seen before in the UK, family entertainment and attractions, a variety of trade including the popular craft marquee, and the opportunity to get up close to an impressive range of iconic cars and motorcycles.
Also taking place on the Sunday is Run Bedford 10k road race beginning at the Embankment at 9am.
Summer Event with something of interest for everyone.

We are looking to hold a group summer event for just this.
It is open to both dog owning and non-dog owning members.

This will give members the opportunity to practice tracking, continuous focus, appropriate shutter speed etc. particularly for hounds on the move.
Not sure about how best to do this, other member will help you.
