About the event...

UKHG's Gems Goddard and Rose Tolhurst are proud to invite you to our 3rd

Hoop Gathering at Hardwick event

coming up in June 2018!



Our retreats offer you conscious, community celebrations of all things hoop and movement related, surrounded by the best of beautiful, British summertime nature.


Seekers of hoop tricks, techniques, new hoop grooves and more hoop buddies won't be disappointed as our well-known and experienced hoop teachers share their knowledge with you during the events.


Lovers of movement and flow will be able to dance wildly in our 5 Rhythms class, and have some fun with choreography in energetic dance classes. Get bendy and chill-out in our morning yoga classes or take it to the next level and hang upside down in the trees with Gems in aerial yoga or acro-yoga classes.


Water-babies can get their fix down by the river side - for swimming, splashing at the 'muddy-beach', boating and of course warming up in our wood-fired riverside hot-tub beside our giant fire-pit!


Foodies can munch to their hearts' delights on locally- sourced, organic vegetarian food over the weekend - including tasty salads and warm, filling dinners.


Enjoy parties, LED hoop jams and a spectacular evening show in our walled gardens!


Bring your tent and camping gear and make your home in our camping field, complete with a communal campers chill-out space with beanbags and hot drinks to enjoy with new friends (as well as a water supply, compost toilets AND a sky-full of stars to gaze upon each night!)




Spaces are available in our glamping bell tents (each one sleeps  5 people) for an extra fee of £40 (subject to numbers) Email us to enquire further on




If you would prefer to sleep off-site we can recommend some local BnBs and hotels within easy driving/taxi distance.
