GoFest North - Etihad Campus, Manchester (June 24/25)

Thanks to the support of Manchester City Council, Sport England, Better(GLL) and Manchester Evening News, we were delighted to launch the first ever GoFest North amidst the inspirational facilities of the Regional Athletics Arena, regional Tennis / Football centre and the East Manchester Leisure Centre. 81% of our GoFester's had never used these facilities before so it was great to open them all up to the Greater Manchester population in this way.

A typical mix of heavy drizzle/ occasional sun was not enough to dampen the spirits of 1,500 people who took part in over 40 sports and activities ranging from Paddle Boarding and Sub Aqua diving through to Archery, Ballet and Street dance classes! Roger Black and Gail Emms conducted fabulous masterclasses in Sprinting and Badminton respectively and the overall feedback has been truly awesome!

Sale Sharks, Salford Red Devils, Manchester Badminton Academy, England Netball, Premier Sport, Street Shakers, SOSA Dance, Total Gymnastics, Sweat Union, Mr Dodgeball, Batfast, VX International, Lancashire Squash and a myriad of other providers really made it a week end to remember with fantastic coaching and games sessions, inside and out. 88% of participants rated the quality of coaching between 8 - 10 which is truly brilliant!

Nearly 50% of children and 44% of adults have since taken up a new sport that they first tried at GoFest and ultimately this is what GoFest is all about.

Thank you to all of our Sponsors and Exhibitors for all their support and encouragement, we hope to be working with all of you again in 2018 and beyond!

GoFest South - Surrey Sports Park, Guildford (May 28/29)

Over 3,500 people enjoyed more fun in the sun at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford with our biggest and best GoFest yet! With even more sports and other activities on offer, even a bit of spring rain was not enough to stop record numbers getting active and filling up our sessions.

Once again, the feedback has been incredibly positive with GoFesters writing to us about the fun they had but also their favourite sports and activities and those that they or their children have since taken up.

Sports/Activity Partners included SCL, Chelsea Football, England Netball, VX International, Fit for Sport, Surrey Storm, Surrey Scorchers, UK Flair, Combat Academy, Turnfit and many others!

Thank you so much to everyone who came and who has spread the GoFest message.

Thank you also to all who completed our questionnaire;. The headlines include:

We know we can improve the experience further and will be using your feedback to further shape our GoFest 2018 programmes.

Thank you to all of our Sponsors and Exhibitors for all their support and encouragement.
