PopGems Academy HIGHLIGHTS of 2014…
THE POP FACTOR TOUR:
PopGems Academy loved performing at the Catford Broadway, as part of the professional tour of ‘Pop Factor – The Concert’ last Easter! And we are super excited to have been invited back to perform when they return to the same venue this year! Catch us there during the Easter Holidays, on Wed on 8th April 2015!! http://www.popfactor.org/
RECORDING STUDIO EXPERIENCE:
In November 2014, we gave all of our students (including the Minigems) the ultimate Pop Star Experience. We took them to the same recording studios that The Saturdays & The Wanted have recorded at, to record The PopGems Xmas Medley 2014 and they LOVED IT!

Our PopGems Xmas Medley link was shared around the world, and resulted in us being featured on 3 radio stations, INCLUDING the midnight play on Poptastic Radio, as the first song on Xmas Day.
Many of our students have also been lucky enough to work professionally, including filming various commercials, films, presenting for Disney and starring in music videos for artists such as Little Mix and Paul McCartney!
PERFORMANCES AT LOCAL & CHARITY EVENTS:
PopGems Academy love performing at Dizzys Diner Family Festival every Summer! In 2014, we also performed at The Royston for Great Ormand Street Charity, a Firework event at the HSBC Sports Club, we ran Race for Life as a team, and performed at a fundraiser event for Demelza in memory of Lucy Baker in West Wickham. It’s a great way to gain performance experience while supporting local businesses, and raising money for charity at the same time.
In 2014 we held our first Pop Stars Summer School, which was a huge success. In 2015 we are planning an Easter School (Mon 30th March – Thurs 2nd April) as well as a Summer School. Dates to follow.
What a great year we’ve had! Thank you all for being part of it. We are very proud of what our students have achieved in 2014, and are extremely excited to see what 2015 brings!
