Full line-up announced for 20th anniversary of Morecambe kite festival

The Catch the Wind festival marks its 20th birthday in 2023

A full line-up of live entertainment has been revealed for the upcoming kite festival in Morecambe.

The popular annual 'Catch the Wind' kite festival will take place this weekend (June 24 and 25) on Morecambe Promenade from noon to 5pm.

Not only will visitors be able to enjoy impressive kites of all shapes and sizes flown by professional kite flyers, or bring their own kite and fly it on the beach, but there will also be a lively programme of music, promenading performers, food, arts and craft workshops with a focus on the natural world, climate change, the landscape and the future of the planet.

Entertainment includes music from Dhamak Collective, Baybeat Streetband, Honk! Lancashire Youth Streetband and Cacophony Arkestra, a beguiling sound installation by Dan Fox of Sound Intervention on the Stone Jetty, Walking Down the Street Gamelan for under fives, fairground rides and Uncle Tacko’s Imaginarium will return, bringing his vintage big top full of zany seaside music and magic. 

This year marks 20 years since the first kite festival and the 30th anniversary of organisers More Music.

Catch the Wind is supported by Lancashire County Council, through the Lancashire Culture & Sport Fund, Lancaster City Council, Morecambe Town Council and Morecambe Bid. 

This event is free. To find out more visit More Music’s website or call 01524 831997.
