Navigating around New Horizon can be difficult especially if you’ve never been before. Here’s some information to help you!

What is New Horizon & where is it held?
New Horizon is a seven day Christian festival that takes place every year on the Ulster University campus in Coleraine, set on the picturesque north coast of Northern Ireland.
