Search For Sponsor To Save Kite Festival

Weymouth Beach Live Site

7:50am 4th September 2013

A fight against time is now on to find a new sponsor for the International Kite Festival in Weymouth.

The Borough Council is pulling its funding from the event to save money - and organisers say they'll take the festival elsewhere unless a sponsor comes forward.

Allan Pothecary from Kite Display Team Close Encounters says if another town takes the festival - it will be gone for good.

And he thinks that will be a big loss to the tourist trade.
