Frankie Goldspink, Participation & Learning Manager for The New Carnival Company said ‘The Festival has a wide community focus. Our Outreach Team has been out and about all over the Island this summer helping people create their own kites for the Festival.  Over 200 kites, many made from Biodegradable materials and decorated taking inspiration from local Sea and Shore biodiversity, will be on display along professionally made kites. You can even make your own in the workshop tent if you don’t have one to bring along!’
