June 2019 will see GOfest head north to Capernwray Bible School, not too far from Lancaster and the southern edge of the Lake District. A 19th century manor house, Capernwray Hall is a marvellously wonderful and beautiful building set in some amazing surroundings, and is flanked by rolling green hills and populated by numerous flocks of sheep and other local wildlife.
