Hampshire Water Festival a Success

Time Travelling by Water celebrated the Hampshire Water Festival in Romsey last weekend.

Rather appropriately the forecast was for rain and it didn’t disappoint! Hampshire residents weren’t put off by the deluge and the festival was a huge success.

Intrepid explorers visiting the Time Travelling by Water stand learnt about the history of Romsey and dived deep to uncover a range of submerged artefacts – all of which were discovered underwater. This reminded us of how important water has been to people in the past whilst the festival celebrated how important water is to us today.

  • Pity about the rain. My family had a lovely day. We went on the Broadlands Walk and it was ironic as the gentleman talked about droughts in previous years and the water meadow was a water meadow and the River Itchen was running full in the rain but we did enjoy. Thank you everybody for giving your time and please continue every year. The bands were very good and we sat in the rain and watched. The children enjoyed the exhibits. Hurst Castle in a previous year was also very good. The Water Events are worthwhile looking out for.
