Balloon & Kite Fiesta


Come and see Telford's skies filled with spectacular flying objects over the weekend to celebrate Telford50.

Lindstrand Technologies will be bringing a variety of hot air balloons that will be floating above your heads at intervals throughout the day as well as being tethered in the QE11 arena for you to see.

The flights will be followed by a beautiful night glow where the balloons become wonderful floating lanterns bouncing to music on the Saturday evening.

The Midlands Kite Flyers will be on the Rugby Club flying their huge kites. There will also be an opportunity for you to fly or make your own kites on the day.

Planning is still underway for this event so keep your eyes peeled for more exciting things to be announced as well as timings for the day.

This is a FREE event so just come along with your picnic and enjoy the park.

Our nominated charity for this event is Severn Hospice and to find out more about the fantastic work they do take a look here

Ballooning is weather dependant

We want to fly, tether and glow and we will if the weather is suitable… but this is England!
Please bear with us if the weather does not allow us – we will be as disappointed as you
