There are several aspects of life I am really passionate about: Family, Sport, Health and Fun! It saddens me to see this great country of ours facing a worsening obesity and inactivity crises, particularly amongst children, and after the success of London 2012 and Rio 2016. As a busy parent, I am also conscious of the constant juggle of trying to ensure that I spend quality time with my children, whilst dealing with the demands of the day to day.

With all this front of mind we created GoFest – The Family Festival of Sport, Dance, Health & Fitness. We have now taken great delight in welcoming thousands of families to our first two major festivals at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford. Please click here for some of the highlights of GoFest 2015 and GoFest 2016.

Now, we are back at Surrey Sports Park for our 3rd year at the end of May and taking GoFest to the amazing Commonwealth Games facilities at Sportcity, Manchester on June 24th/25th

There are plenty of ways to get involved, as a key sponsor, exhibitor or as sports or dance delivery partner so if you would like to support us in our drive to unite far more families through sport and healthy activity, please e mail me on paul.farris@gofest.co.uk or call 07774 629242 for more details.

With best wishes,
Paul Farris and family
