IMPORTANT NOTE


The pandemic has caused everyone many issues.  The Pop Project were unable to work for 18 months and consequently it will take a little while to build back up with our full repertoire of shows.

We are offering a limited range of shows which we will build on as we return to "normality".

Please contact us if you wish to discuss your specific requirements.
 

 

Moving on

 

MOVING ON

Helping your children to move on post-Covid


This show takes elements from several of our previous shows to emphasise the importance of moving on from what we've all been through and maybe finding something better than before.

The show covers :

Good mental health
The need to look after our minds and to find happiness and enjoyment in our lives

Valuing others and deciding what things are important
Saluting our community heroes, kindness and respect for each other

Positivity and looking forward
Developing good attitudes and facing the future optimistically


We include the usual Pop Project elements - singing, dancing, activities for the children - all linked in a presentation including pictures, videos and display


All the songs are our most uplifting :
I feel good, Walking on sunshine, Ain't no stopping us now, Reach for the stars and more



Our original show :

PP1
 

The original show tracing the history of pop music from the 50's to the present day, covering not only the music but also the culture and lifestyle of the times using pictures, video clips and artefacts of the period to make the experience truly interactive.

And for KS1/Foundation 35 minutes of singing lively action songs from each decade.




Still one of our most popular shows :

PP books 22

Seven decades of Books
 
In our KS2 presentation, we take a historical journey from the 1950s to the present day focusing on the children's books that were written and published in each decade.
  • Journey with us from Narnia to Hogwarts.
  • Meet Paddington Bear, the Snowman, the Gruffalo.
  • Find out about the great authors - Tolkien, Roald Dahl, Philip Pullman, etc.
Our live music, pictures and video clips set the context of the period and we have some interactive fun along the way.


The KS1 & Foundation presentation takes a look at books appropriate for this age, and we sing some lively action songs that even the youngest of children can join in with.

Meet everyone's favourite book characters - tank engines, hungry caterpillars, multicoloured elephants.
