Thousands attend Norfolk Living Water event
Thousands of people from all across the country have enjoying a wet and windy Living Water Festival
at the Royal Norfolk Showground near Norwich.
A record-breaking 2500 were booked in for the whole event and up to 1000 day visitors each day also attended.
One man came all the way from Nigeria and a woman travelled from Argentina. Both were volunteers at the event. A family also came from Spain.
The theme of Living Water was Belonging and the line-up of speakers included: John and Anne Coles (New Wine), Rachel and Gordon Hickson and Simon Ponsonby, (St Aldgate’s Oxford), David Campbell (Elim (London and the South East)), Dave Smith (Peterborough Community Church) and Steve Campbell (C3).
A variety of entertainment including bands, solo artists, and circus entertainers, were also on offer daily and there were full programmes of activities for children and young people.
One new feature this year was a full-sized specially-built tabernacle for prayer throughout the event (pictured right).
Radio station Living Water Radio broadcast from the festival all over greater Norwich and as far as East Dereham and Wymondham.
The station was on the airwaves 24-hours a day at 107.3FM from early on Friday August 11 until late on Wednesday August 16 produced from special studios in the main arena control tower on the Norfolk Showground.
