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!

4th Friern Barnet Brownies
Brownies the section of GirlGuiding UK for girls aged seven to ten.
Brownies become a member of a six such as Badger, Fox, Mole, Squirrel, Hedgehog and Rabbit and follow a programme called the Brownie Adventure. The name reflects the world of exciting opportunities, challenges and fun that is Brownies.
Girls can participate in a wide range of activities at their regular meetings, and at special events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays. They can find themselves trying out arts and crafts or recipes, playing energetic games, taking part in community action projects, or zooming down zip wires at one of our activity centres.
Girls can also extend their knowledge and abilities by working towards Brownie interest badges covering many different hobbies and activities from Science investigator to Circus skills.
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.
