GoFest Active: The Inclusive Movement for a Healthier UK

There are several aspects of life I am really passionate about… family, sport, health and fun!

The Coronavirus pandemic has certainly focussed all of our minds on the importance of health and enjoying quality family time.

Our country faces a worsening inactivity crises and we know, now more than ever, that moving more, and losing weight in particular, plays a critical role in fighting disease.

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.

GoFest started as “The Family Festival of Sport, Dance, Health & Fitness” back in 2015. Since then, we have taken great delight in welcoming thousands of families to eight major festivals at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford and the Etihad Campus in Manchester.

Over the last 5 years we have been growing GoFest into much more of a movement with Kids Activity Camps, Virtual Workouts, Podcasts and Educational elements added to our core Festivals.

Our “GoFest Active Kids Camps” are running during school holidays and half terms. These are superb ways for kids to have fun, refine sporting skills, improve fitness and enjoy other healthy activities along the way! Please click here for more information and to book places for your children.

There are plenty of exciting ways to get involved:

  • Key Sponsor
  • Exhibitor
  • Sports, Dance or Fitness Delivery Partner
  • Tickets re-seller
  • Ambassador or Advocate
  • Participant
