Streatham Common Kite DayHoping for a strong wind for their annual kite display, the Streatham Common Kite Day returns for its 19th year. A host of colourful kites soar up to 1,000 feet over Streatham Common and you'll get to see the best kite demonstrators in the UK including Team Spectrum - a father and son team whose synchronised kite flying is choreographed to music - the Flying Fish, a husband and wife double act who first flew at their local common, and NASAman whose kite helps lift him up into the sky. Everyone is welcome at this free community event where there's a hog roast, a bar run by local craft brewery The Inkspot Brewery, live music from local band Groovessence as well as a bouncy castle and face painting. If you want to fly you can make your own or buy all kinds of colourful kites at a stall there - alternatively, if you prefer, simply gaze up at the high-flying entertainment.
