A dozen King's Lynn churches are set to stage free festival 

A dozen West Norfolk churches are set to come together for the fourth year running at the Celebrate Festival for a community fun day in the centre of King’s Lynn on Saturday June 8, facilitated by Celebrate King's Lynn.

The event team is expecting an increase in the numbers attending as the people of King’s Lynn gather for the free festival with music, food and entertainment which will be staged once again in the town’s central park, The Walks, from 10-5pm.

As always, everything at the event is free and courtesy of the charity and the town’s churches, including a free barbecue. This year’s event will include a stage featuring live music, drama and a circus performer.
Music will be provided by bands including Matt McCleary, King’s Lynn Street Church, Marty Breeze and Radical Church Norwich.

Free fun activities include Go Karts, The Gladiator, Sumo Wrestling, Eliminator, a bouncy castle, giant children’s slide, face painting and more.

Other groups attending include the Christian Motorcycle Association, drama from Open the Book, Sally Beadle’s Bible Circus, Girl Guides, Norwich Healing Rooms, Foodbank, Christians Against Poverty, Bridge for Heroes, Word on the Wash and UCB Radio.

The local churches involved with Celebrate will again be running games and have information stands. They include: Church of the Nazarene; Cornerstone Baptist church; King’s Glory church; The Gateway church; Radical church Norwich; The King’s Centre; North Lynn Methodist Church; St John The Evangelist; Church in the Woottons; St Faith’s Church; King’s Lynn Community Adventist church; King’s Lynn Evangelical church; Eternity church Downham Market

Celebrate King’s Lynn project leader, Maarten Klem, said: “The whole idea of Celebrate King’s Lynn's events is for the Christian community around West Norfolk to put on an entirely free event for everyone from the local community to come, enjoy and experience God's free, unconditional love. Any other churches or Christian groups that want to join us are more than welcome, just get in contact.”
