Party for 40 year olds - Pop Star Party for all ages


Pop Star Party can be run in many ways but to simplify things we have 2 main types.
Type 1 is for childrens birthday parties aged 8-16 and Type 2 is for special birthdays celebrations or wedding anniversaries.

Stella had a surprise 40th birthday Pop Star Party booked for her by her friend Clare and things almost got cancelled due to the crazy amount of snow. However they did all make it to the farm and sang The Proclaimers 'I would be 500 miles' in a variety of ways. Everyone had loads of fun and left full from the banquet - with a CD of course!

You can book your special birthday celebration with us by following this link

Recording Experience for 8 year olds from Burbage, Hinckley


Well you can see from the photo that things get a bit cloudy sometimes - the whole studio was nearly full of smoke when Isobel and her mates came to sing recently - the live room is where the disco happens but this was taken in the control room which was also filling up - a great group and plenty of fun had by all. Happy Birthday Isobel.

Headphone Station Arrives


OK so the headphone station has been delivereded to the studio and it's looking pretty fine - custom built to accommodate 8 pairs of headphones (everything happens in 8's in the biz) and highly manoeuverable this gem of a design is ready for test driving this Saturday. (If anyone can shed light on how to spell manoeuverable I would be pleased to know!)



Further to that we have a group coming from London for a 40th birthday celebration next Monday to sing 'Umberella' with their own kink on things - I suspect there will be some bubbly involved and things may go a bit squiffy!!! Good job the room is prepared.

New furniture being built for 'Pop Star Party' lovers at Born in a Barn Studio

We always listen to our customers at Born in a Barn Studio (well its part of the job really!) and one suggestion was that the headphones could be hung on a stand in the room to save the 'spaghetti incident' occurring when they are put on the floor - so we have taken this wonderful idea and custom built our very own 'Pop Star Party Headphone Station' which will hold up to 8 pairs of cans - you lucky lot! Not only does it look cool but its got hydraulics and it may even light up!

We don't do things by halves at the 'barn' - why not book your party now.

Although many parties are run for younger children the theme can be easily adapted for older kids and young adults. Singing is always the focus, fun is guaranteed and a unique experience of being in a recording studio, which can't be gained anywhere else in the midlands, due to our spacious live room and cool setting on a farm with buffet, laser disco & personalised CDs.

Warwick childrens party for 10 year olds


Gosh! - you can see from this pic that the small groups can be just as much fun. 'Don't Stop Believin' was the song choice but don't stop mucking about would have been more apt maybe - we had a good evening with the girls from Warwick who all left of course with a CD and full tums.

Pop Star Party for 11 year olds in Yoxall


Its been a busy month for the Pop Star Party service run at Born in a Barn Studio, with mainly the younger groups recently and the themed parties are proving popular. Recently we ran a smaller party for these 11 year olds from Yoxall and I was told they were all into Karate with Dad running a Combat Club and all the family being highly trained in martial arts - luckily the party went smoothly so there was no fighting necessary and Katy Perry's 'Teenage Dream' was delivered beautifully by Lana and her girlfriends. As can be seen our hats were a 'hit' also!!

Pop Star Party for 10 year olds in Coventry


A group of 12 girls all aged 10 and 11 had a fantastic party with us and really enjoyed the new scoring cards.
Rhea is from Coventry and had a great party singing California Gurls. After completing the group version it took a little persuasion but she did make an excellent dou version after her sister joined in. A really busy party but they all left with their personalised CD and loved the disco at the end.

Party for 9 year olds from Hinckley


Over the weekend we ran 4 parties and had a Katy Perry overload. Ella and her mates from Hinckley chose 'Hot and Cold' and had a lot of fun competing as 2 groups to get the best take possible. Ella did a solo version too which went well. Our new scoring system proved to be a success and luckily the low numbers were not required today!!

Childrens party for 13 year olds from Solihull at Born in a Barn Studio


Shona and her 'Solihullian' party pals had a great party last night and decided to name themselves after a Mr Kipling cake - the Fiendish Fancies lol!!! These girls could eat - the buffet was devoured in less than 10 mins. Taking on a fairly tricky number 'Empire State of Mind' by Alicia Keys they managed to get a great version as a group and the solo by Shona was pretty cool too. The disco at the end was fun and they all left with a CD of what they did and this picture on it of course.

Pop Star Party CD's for children's parties in West Midlands and Warwickshire

Halloween came upon us very fast (we almost forgot) but luckily last minute we grabbed some pumpkins and decorated the Pop Star Room at Born in a Barn Studio with some scarey faces and pumpkins. The 15 9 year olds from Redditch all arrived after a worrying smash on the M6 (smashing pumpkins hmmmmm??) and had chosen to sing Fight for this Love. Luckily there was no fighting but there was an unusual amount of gymnastics taking place at the end in our Live Room whilst the CDs were being made up. So well done to Chloe and happy birthday Halloween style from BB Studio.

Pop Star Party with children aged 10 from Worcester

Oh we had fun last weekend when a group of 15 children turned up in a hire van from Worcester for Jasmines 10th birthday - and the van broke down - the kids all enjoyed the party and luckily a new van was hired in time for the end, to get them all home safely.

Lasers added to the Pop Star Party for 8 to16 year olds in Warwickshire

About 3 weeks ago (how time flies) we added some new lights to the Live Room (at Born in a Barn Studio) where we hold the disco's at the end of the Pop Star Parties.

So now, not only do the kids from ages 8 to 16 get a great disco hearing themselves on the PA of course, but there's the usual 4 coloured spot lights and mirror ball, with 2 colour lasers and a strobe light.

The lasers really fill the room and make a great atmosphere for everyone, helping to create a really modern feel - wicked.

The last 2 parties in September using them went down a storm but I was too busy to even take photos of the room - whoops.

Pope Star Party!!!



Sometimes the party won't come to us so we go to the party. We had spent the night in Birmingham's Mailbox hotel already, so I started my day with Eggs Pope Benedict (XVI) for breakfast there! After that we nipped up Broad Street to see what was going on in Cofton Park. We were not allowed in the Cofton Park but duly queued along the Hagley Road to witness the Popes' exit from the park. Fortunately I had my camera and manged to take this snap of the Pope before he gave us all the slip by changing from the Pope-mobile to an unmarked car and nipped off to the Airport for his last Mass in the UK.

I guess when the Pope comes to town there's always a big party.

Pop Star Party for 10 year olds, 11 year olds & 16 year olds in Coventry, West Midlands


Over the weekend we held 3 parties for kids in Coventry. The first group on Friday were 16 years old and completed 2 songs in record time.

The 2 Pop Star Parties on Saturday were for younger groups of 10 year olds & 11 year olds and we completed again 2 songs each for both of these parties.

A new additional feature to the party was introduced of a short disco at the end, to hear what you have recorded on our PA system in the live room, with just the disco lighting on.

This was a great success although there were some worrying requests!

So Lauren from Rugby and both Olivia & Georgia from Coventry, were all very happy with their Pop Star Parties, well fed of course (after our super buffet in the Green Room at the 'barn') and all left with their personalised full colour CD of their chosen songs.

Why not visit the main studio site to see more about the studio generally or book yourself a Pop Star Party.

Pop Star Party goes indoors and outdoors in Warwickshire for a great kids party.

The sun was so hot this weekend that the Fathers Day Pop Star Party spilled out into the farmyard, where a trailer was commandeered for use as an over-spill to the vast amount of food, pop & cake brought along to Dechante's birthday.

You too can have a Pop Star Party like our Pop Star Party gang from Sutton Coldfield at Born in a Barn Studio Warwickshire - just give us a call .

You too could have this style party. She spent around 5 hours at the studio and wanted to sing solo to a few tracks as well as doing a group sing. The buffet was changed a little and Sarah left with her own bottle of bubbly as well as the personalised CD - thanks to Ann who saved the day by miraculously knowing how to fix a major printer problem!!

Up, Up and away for recent Pop Star Party in the West Midlands. Great children’s party was had by all.

Pop Star Party was on the Up last Saturday - no clues what song was involved!
14 girls from Rugby piled into the studio and had a wonderful time. Some of the crew including birthday girl Georgia are in a group called CATS (Christine Anderson Theatre School) Rugby, so there were some super singers in this party to say nothing of dancing, tap and plenty of acting up!!

Here's a group photo - the largest all (nearly) group to date, Rugby Pop Star Party.

At the end of April the' bunky bedroom at the back end of the barn' received a face-lift and Anna's gang were the first to experience it. The backroom is now more of a Green Room where guests can relax in comfort surrounded by well known faces of the modern pop world - but really the main attraction is still the buffet all party pals receive.

World Cup 2010 - Born in a Barn recording studio football song

Just this last week we had a slightly different style party with a group of lads hell bent on making the best football anthem ever in time for the South African World Cup next month.

It never fails to amaze me what grown men will do - the track however is finished and is an absolute masterpiece - 4 minutes of jam packed football fun. It will be available for download middle of next week or get in touch to hear it earlier.



The shot here is of the 5 lads who contributed the lyrics, chanting, shouts and speech to the song and the dressing up was for a short part of the film being created to go with the song by 4 very kind people from Warwick University. All will be available on You Tube very soon. Watch here or contact the studio for more details.

Volcanoes dont stop our parties in the West Midlands

Last Saturday we managed to still hold the Pop Star Party for Sophie and her pals after having been stuck in Portugal due to the volcanic ash crisis (Mt Eyjaffjallajokull erupts) and 1 of her friends also stuck in America.

Thankfully the air space closure was lifted and everyone started to move and we made it back in time to ensure Sophie had a great time.

Here is her group enjoying the day:




This weekend we have 9 x 12 year olds in and they will be the first group to see the newly redecorated 'Green Room'.
