Keswick’s annual Christian Convention seemed set to be a repeat of the previous year’s success. An estimated 8,000 to 10,000 visitors, many from abroad, have been thronging the town. The Skiddaw Street tent has neared its 4,600-seat capacity for some of the talks and Bible classes. Convention visitors used various methods of accommodation, including four large tented camps organised by the Scripture Union and other Christian Fellowships.
