International Kite Festival in Portsmouth
Having been involved with Kite events at Blackheath in London over the last few years we were really excited when the call came in for us to manage the event support and public address requirements for the International Kite Festival in Portsmouth this weekend. The premier kite festival in the U.K. It has grown year on year to be recognised by the worldwide kite community as one of the best kite festivals, attracting many kite fliers from around the world together with many tens of thousands of spectators.
Our Event Support Control bus was positioned in the centre of the site for general management of the event and for the commentators commentary box. We covered the 12 acre site with speaker positions through out to ensure a clear level of music and commentary could be heard by all no matter where they were on the site.
During the weekend we also provided the lighting and music in the marquee for the evening’s dinner and charity auction. Our event support team once again showed that they can provide a wide variety solutions on any event site.
Through the weekend there was also a local dog show, a full fairground to keep all the people entertained along side the highlight of the weekend which was the professional kite display teams.
