Hello Poppets! It’s been a while since we have updated the blog – mostly because it was such an action packed end to the year. Goodbye 2016… Three gigs in a week in the run up to Christmas, amid all of the lurgy flying about almost killed us but we survived! And seeing as itContinue reading “New year, New Guest MD, New Logo!”
It’s not even lunchtime and already the Pop-Up Choir are already frantically sending each other messages to make sure that no one has a wardrobe clash. No chance. Did we mention that there may be quite a few sparkles this evening? I’ve even made myself a sparkly bow tie! Dressing up seems to be theContinue reading “Tonight’s the night for PECKHAM NIGHTS!”
We’re absolutely thrilled to have been invited along to Daylight Music at the Union Chapel on Saturday 11th June.

At the Pop-Up Choir we do a lot of things – pop up at King’s Cross station to raise money for the Samaritans, provide vocal accompaniment on the Royal Festival Hall stage during a beat boxing – organ bonanza, our own Masters of Pop gigs… But, we don’t really do Christmas – not in theContinue reading “Festive fun with The Pop-Up Choir!”
The autumn term doesn’t officially begin for another fortnight, but last night a bunch of us hit The Black Prince to plan our set list and rehearse for a great pre-term gig.
It’s all we can do not to fast forward time until next Saturday, but given that our powers don’t extend that far yet, we thought it would be good to introduce you to the acts performing at our Masters of Pop birthday gig.
