The Living Islam Festival (28th - 31st July 2016) is a major national event held at the Lincolnshire Showground (post code LN2 2NA).
Set in the heart of the English countryside, 205 acres are transformed (with the help of many volunteers) into a unique experience of tranquility, worship, learning and family pleasure. The result is an extra-special gathering and a summer celebration of faith and family life.
The Living Islam Festival is a project of the Islamic Society of Britain.
The Islamic Society of Britain is a community based charity and not-for-profit company. Established in 1990, we were one of the first organisations that sought to evolve a uniquely British flavour to Islam.
In order for this to happen we felt that Muslims would have to think seriously about understanding their faith in a British context.
We are one of the largest national networks of British Muslim volunteers, successfully harnessing the broad skills base of our members, who hail from a variety of backgrounds – ‘stay at home’ mums and dads as well as doctors, lawyers, teachers…
The Islamic Society of Britain has played an important and positive part in how British Muslims think about their faith. Some of our innovative activities often broke new ground, emboldening and empowering many others to create projects of their own.
The Islamic Society of Britain views Islam as a religion of peace and a continuation of age-old teachings from God to humanity. Not as a new religion, but as a way of life that has a strong focus – in spiritual terms on the worship of one God, and in social terms on justice and equity between people.
