all around the Country.

If you would like our Display Team to perform at a specific event, please contact

Michelle Oakes on the gym telephone number  01606 782658.


A great start to the New Year!

The Display Team performed their new

routine "Greatest Showman" at a dress

rehearsal for Gymfusion Northwest.  Everyone

said that this routine is one of the best they

had seen and The Team certainly put on the

sparkle throughout their 6 minute


They will be performing this routine at the M &

S Bank Arena in Liverpool (formerly The Echo

Arena) on Sunday 24th February between

4pm & 6pm 




 What a fantastic performance by the Display Team

Wow, wow, wow! What more can we say!? What an end to 2018 for the Display Team!

The team absolutely smashed their two final performances of Pitch Perfect at the London Festival over the weekend and received compliment, after compliment for their performances! They were even clapped in the warm up hall by teams from other clubs!

We couldn't ask for anymore! Guys you were amazing!

What are the team up to now?

During our road trips and performances there

has been 1 constant album being played, The

Greatest Showman. The team have thoroughly

enjoyed screaming... sorry, we mean singing

along to all of the tracks from this amazing


So, Michelle has been editing the music

and working on plans & choreography for the

team to use this as their main routine for

2019.  The team have already started work on

parts and are really enthusiastic. There are

definitely going to be some Wow moments in

this routine, watch this space!



Summer events...

Wow, was it hot!!

Even in blistering heat (and with a rather

important football match happening at the

same time as our performance at Antrobus!),

the team wowed the crowd with their new

"Chase" routine, skills and balances. The girls

really did themselves & the club proud in very

difficult conditions.

We would like to thank the audiences at  

Antrobus Village Day, Hartford Picnic on the

Green & Wincham School Fete for a wonderful

welcome and some very enthusiastic cheers.

You can see more of the pictures on our Facebook page.

Whilst we were at Hartford's Picnic on the

Green, Michelle gave the team a challenge.

Ever since the gym was opened 21 years

ago, she has wanted to build a balance around

the main Hartford sign in the centre of

the village. So, with a few wobbles, twigs in

knees and lots of strange looks from passing

cars, the balance was put up..... quite

impressively I must add!

In true Display Team style (balances and skills

happen anywhere and anyhow!), Emma

decided to change the way to cross the road

when the green man showed, and walked on

her hands over the crossing much to the

amazement of the waiting traffic!

 York Gymfusion...

Another road trip with the team, this time to

the York Barbican Theatre, where the they

performed a shorter version of their Pitch

Perfect routine. The response from the

audience was great and we even made it onto

the British Gymnastics Instagram page!

 Gymfest Aberdeen...

After working on a new routine and skills

since September 2017, the Team, including 4

new members, were finally ready to show 

their completed routine  to our Gym Family,

and what a fantastic response we got.

This fired the Team up ready for their

adventures to Gymfest 2018 in Aberdeen.

The girls wowed the crowd with their routine

to the theme of "Pitch Perfect". This had

the audience clapping and singing along

then raising the roof with cheers when the

final balance was performed.

 What a busy year for our new team with Festivals, Gymfest and BG Ceremony Duties. The girls performed brilliantly in Scotland, showcasing their Sunshine & Showers routine which can be seen on You Tube by typing in...

 The team then went onto work with some of our Adults and Squad gymnasts to perform at the British Gymnastics Championship Series Gala.  We were given the theme of Family and considering some of our adult gymnasts hadn't done a forward roll up until this point, the routine was a great success with everyone coming off the floor at the end with a huge cheer, wanting to perform again! 

Watch it by clicking on the link

The team of 7 has grown into a team of 12 again which includes 4 new members. The girls are currently working hard putting together their "Pitch Perfect" routine ready for 2018.

 We know 2018 will be a busy year for the team with local events, Gymfest Aberdeen, Gymfusions and BG Ceremony duties.





 After finishing our outdoor displays (some of which were rather wet!!), the girls were straight back into the gym working on their vaulting and trampetting to enable them to perform on this equipment next summer.

 Gymfest Irvine 2015

Wow....what a weekend!

The team took their annual trip to Scotland to perform their "Carnival" routine and the new routine "Explosive" and what fantastic performances they were too! Even after some emergency alterations a week before, they worked tirelessly to make sure these routines were the best yet.

With 5 new members in the team, the nerves were jangling but you wouldn't have known, as the second the girls stepped onto the floor they performed out of their socks with intricate dance steps, neat skills and breath-taking balances.  

An amazing weekend of performances from everyone.

The Team 



 Gymfusion Hemel Hempstead - February 2015


I received a telephone call from the Gymfusion Hemel asking if we would like to take part. First issue, it's a 3 hour drive away. Second issue, the shortened main routine isn't quite finished . Third issue, not all of the team can make it....... "OK, Are you up for a challenge?" and the reply was most definitely YES!!

With 2 slots to fill and some of the team not used to display performances I was a little nervous for everyone. BUT I need not have been. The first routine was really good, the second performance was amazing. The team certainly pulled together and gave 100% which resulted in a fantastic performance.

You can see parts of the routine on our Facebook page. 

Well done everyone. 



A lot has been happening in the gym since the new routine started to take shape in September. New tumbles, skill sequences, dance sections and balances have all been worked on, and our 5 newest team mates Rachel, Ella, Charlotte, Beth and Millie have settled in great.


 Tarporley Carnival

What an amazing day at Tarporley Carnival. A busy day for the team, with a Procession through the town where the girls tumbled, leapt and built balances to the packed crowd along the roadside. Then a short break before they performed their Palladio and Vaulting routines.
Sore hands and feet didn't stop them from putting 100% into their performance which was greeted with cheers from the audience.

 Lower Peover

 Another great display at Lower Peover School. The team shone as much as the sun did, with a lot of impressed parents and spectators being wowed by the girls acrobatics.


 Comberbach Village Fete

The weather hadn't been kind by soaking the field but this didn't put the Team off. They tumbled and balanced through the village in the procession then took to the arena late in the afternoon. All skills were greeted with cheers and applause.

Here are some photos from the routines.

 "The best routines ever performed by the Hartford girls"

"We can't wait until your team perform, we think they are great!" 

"The Hartford routines are always brilliant" 

"One of the best routines at Gymfest" 

These are just some of the comments from members of the audience and from other clubs. 

Our girls had worked really hard to make sure that nothing was going to stop this year from being as good as previous years, and their effort and dedication shone through making the 2 routines performed "Palladio" and "Musicals" clearly their best ever.     See what you think by clicking on the links below!  Musicals - main routine   Palladio - short routine

Each event was very successful and was recieved with great enthusiasm from the crowd (even when it rained!)   Unfortunately we had to alter the content at some of the  events as the poor weather and soft ground made it unsafe to use our Trampetts, but the girls still performed some amazing skills, tumbles and balances.  We already have bookings for next year and the girls are back in the gym training new skills and working on their new routine for Gymfusion and Gymfest 2013.

WELL DONE TEAM, you were simply The Best!
