Breaking news: Nunnykirk no more!! At the 11th hour, due to contractual differences Nunnykirk will no longer be the venue for KMN 2017 summer camp.

After our disappointment with the negotiations, we were left lost as what to do next. Nunnykirk seemed so wonderful, so beautifully unspoiled and idyllically English that we did not think that anything else could take its place. We were all very shocked and disappointed. I spent hours on the internet searching for other possible locations. However, Brian suggested the stables at Gibside: the stables? at Gibside? What was Brian thinking? Would we be sleeping on hay with the livestock like some kind of nativity school play? Nevertheless, heart-broken and dejected by our previous loss, and with no other alternative, we went along with his suggestion and decided to visit Gibside the next day.
