Kite Symphony Exhibition in the Atrium
The Newmarket Kite Symphony Exhibition in the atrium showcases local creativity and talent. Walk through our doors an see four colourful kites, hand-made by Newmarket residents. The residents who designed and decorated these kites were inspired by the local suffolk landscape as well as the history and collections at Palace House, Newmarket: National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art.
Families who joined us on the 2017 Open Day at the Heritage Centre, community groups from Abbeycroft Leisure Centre, All Saints Church, the Marco Botti Stables, and Waitrose worked closely with local artist Paula Wilson to produce these great artworks. The kites also took to the streets of Newmarket as the groups paraded them within the Newmarket Carnival on 8 July 2017.
Newmarket Kite Symphony is an arts and sports community project that was brought to life by Market Place working in collaboration with the National Heritage Centre.
Over the summer, artist R.M. Sánchez-Camus (Marcelo), kite specialist Zachary De Santos together with local Newmarket artist Paula Wilson, have been working with local community members, designing, making and flying specialised kites.
