Get to grips with the art of kite flying at Birdoswald Roman Fort on Hadrian’s Wall. Expert kite flyers will dazzle you with their skills as they create a spectacle in the grounds of this ancient Roman Fort.

See gigantic kites in flight, watch synchronised demonstrations to music, have a go at making your very own kite and try it out in the family flying area where we’ll also give you some top tips on making it soar.  If you have a kite at home make sure you bring it along on the day too for an unforgettable day out!

We've got a packed programme of events lined up for the Easter holidays - visit our Easter pages to find out more.
