29 - 30 June 2019
Love it or hate it, it seems we’re all curious about GOOP. Jade eggs, golden facials, crystal meditative exploration; can these things really make us look and feel better? After opening a pop-up shop in Westbourne Grove last year – so popular it’s now a permanent London home for the brand – Gwyneth Paltrow is bringing her GOOP wellness festival to the UK this June. At the light and airy Re:Centre space on the Thames (close to the River Cafe) expect a whole immersive weekend of wellness experiences. Tickets to the ‘Saturday Summit’ will set you back a cool £1000 and includes talks – Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP’s chief content officer, Elise Loehnen in conversation with the doctors and researchers, small classes in three different studios—Beauty, Body, and Energy, a ‘goopy playground’ – where FaceGym will offer lifting and sculpting and MZ Skin will be giving out light-therapy golden facials, as well as food from Farmacy Kitchen and Farm Girl.
If you’d rather drop-in, you can buy individual tickets to events and classes on Sunday from £30. Workouts with famed A-list personal trainer, Tracy Anderson might have sold out, but there’s still plenty to choose from. There’s Fertility – A Guide to Getting Pregnant with Zita West, The Art of Letting Go – a Meditation Session with Cornelius O’Shaughnessy, Transformational Thinking: A Barry Michels Signature Workshop – that will focus on letting go of negativity led by the psychotherapist and New York Times bestselling author. There will also be a pop-up shop open all day, stocked with GOOP gear, beauty products and books.
Alternatively, go all out with the Wellness Weekender pass (£4,500) that gets you access to everything across the weekend, plus a 2-night stay at the Kimpton Fitzroy hotel on Friday and Saturday night’s, Friday night cocktails with Elise and Jasmine Hemsley, Saturday morning meditation, a VIP Sunday workout with Gwyneth and Tracy Anderson and more treats.
