Creative crafts, story-telling and glitter are just a few of the activities for children at the Exmouth Kite Festival.

The Exmouth Art Group is once again working closely with the Rotary Club, helping to create pieces of art from waste materials and making kites, in the children’s marquee.

A story teller, glitter painter and lessons in circus skills are some of the other attractions on offer for keeping the kiddies amused.

The World of Country Life and Crealy Adventure Park are among those supporting the children’s marquee, meaning there might also be some ‘friendly goats’ walking around the Festival - with their handlers of course!

Attractions for the whole family will include a display of vintage cars and steam engines and a range of fairground stalls.

A variety of prints, cards and fridge magnets, depicting the Kite Festival, will be on sale at the festival, on Saturday, August 4 and Sunday, August 5.
