Popchoir

 (2 miles away)

If you love to sing, don't keep it to yourself! Popchoir is for anyone and everyone who wants to sing, but hasn’t found anywhere fun enough to do it yet. As our name suggests we’re not talking about Mozart and Bach, we’re talking about Lady Gaga, Abba and Jessie J; in fact any of the thousands of great songs from the many artists that have formed the soundtrack to our lives.

Popchoir is run by Helen Hampton, an award-winning songwriter, vocal coach, vocal arranger and NLP Master Practitioner. She has a long and distinguished career in the music business, and has worked with household names like Michael Jackson, Tom Jones and Robbie Williams to name just a few.

Join us and you will have the opportunity to sing some great songs with a bunch of other people, to polish them up, and perform them in public for fun. You will learn to find and improve your voice and will spend an hour and a half every week getting that feel-good factor. You might even make some new friends in the process.

No auditions, no experience is required, and you don’t need to read music. Book a FREE taster session and see why our members go home smiling!

Wednesday 9.30am-11.00 am or 8.00pm - 9.30pm, term time only

Fourth Friern Barnet Guides

 (2 miles away)

Fourth Friern Barnet Guides are a Guide unit, based in Friern Barnet, North London. We meet on Tuesday nights to play games, try new activities, make friends, help our community and have fun. We go on holiday as a unit each year camping in the summer, and somewhere indoors when it's colder.

Guides are aged between 10 and 14, and a lot of us were Brownies before becoming Guides, but you don't have to have been a Brownie first. We wear a uniform, and at the moment special neckers to show that we're celebrating the Centenary. Guides are 100 years old this year, and we're looking forward to celebrating that in as many ways as possible over the next 12 months.

What do Guides do? Being a Guide is all about learning new skills, making your own decisions and having fun. Guiding provides a safe environment to explore new possibilities and achieve personal goals while making friends and having adventures. And it’s up to each Guide to work out which opportunities are relevant for her, whether it’s improving her football skills, party planning or learning about independent living.

•Guides work together in Patrols. They elect their own Patrol Leader and are encouraged to plan their own activities. Patrols provide a ready-made group of friends and helps the girls to feel that they belong to something special.
•Any girl aged ten to 14 who wishes to, can become a Guide.
•Each Guide chooses the top she wants to wear from the options available in the Guide wear collection. This choice allows Guides to be themselves but also makes them feel part of the unit.

Project three
Diverse Movement
Diverse Movement would be an event for people, from all different back grounds to showcase their talent. My vision is to have a wide range of talented people in one venue to bring them together, so they can network with each other. This could hopefully fuse and create a new diverse generation of performers. The age rating for this showcase would before all age group (For performers and the audience).
People who can get involved with the showcase:Performers:- Musicians Dancers Actors Magicians
Others:- Directors Fashion Designers Investors Athletes Artists
Musicians, Actors, Dancers & Magicians
To get onto the showcase each act would have to audition. This would be a small audition process that a panel within the industry judge. Out of the audition process 10 acts will be chosen to perform. The outcome to this would be a possible recognition by someone within the industry and to have fun and to network with others who have a similar outcome in life. The reason for all the different acts is to show that this is not a typical showcase. It’s to show that there is a wide range of talent within all genres.
Inventors, Athletes, Artist, Fashion Designers
These will be set up at the main entrance of the venue and will all have a stand where they can promote their products and offer opportunities. People coming to the show could be into athletics, fashion ETC so therefore could be offered an opportunity such as audition dates for a sports club. This is also a way to network with others
