There’s no audition and no need to be able to read music as the songs are taught by ear. You’ll learn how to control your voice through vocal and breathing techniques and have great fun along the way.
We have over 100 choir members from the borough of Barnet who sing their hearts out every Monday evening, and it’s a great way to make new friends while expressing yourself through the music.”

“We stand for:
Equal Representation: we can create an equal Parliament in just two elections. Without change, we will be waiting at least 50 years.
Equal Pay & Opportunity: we can make equal pay a reality. For every hour they work, women still earn just 81p of every pound earned by men.
Equal Parenting & Care-giving: more men want the chance to care for and enjoy time with their families. And women want a better work/life balance.
Equal Education: we can use our nurseries and schools as engine rooms of possibility, inspiring young women and men to achieve their full potential, free from gendered expectations about the life they should live.
Equal Media Treatment: equality for women requires real cultural change and the media has to be at the centre of that.
End Violence to Women: sexism, sexual harassment and domestic violence is faced on a daily basis by ordinary women, in ordinary places. We will use all possible means to make women feel safe in the home, on the street, on public transport and in the workplace, i.e. everywhere.
Equality in Healthcare and Medical Research: to ensure better health outcomes and access and provision of treatment and support.
Because equality is better for everyone.
If you are keen to make a difference we absolutely need your support, now more than ever.”

“Welcome to the campaign for a Better Barnet
We set up the Better Barnet campaign to respond to residents who told us what they thought was broken in Barnet – a Conservative council that was just not listening to the people it claimed to represent. We work in partnership with local residents and community groups on everything from road safety schemes and parking charges, to saving Friern Barnet Library and opposing the Conservatives ‘One Barnet’ sell-off of council services.
Although the campaign to stop the ‘One Barnet’ sell-off of services was not successful, together we have achieved many other successes. And where the Barnet Conservatives have failed to create a vision and a plan for Barnet, and where they have failed to work with residents and communities to create that vision and plan, the Better Barnet campaign will continue to work with local people to help them do just that.
We’re building a campaign and a movement that wants to put you, our local residents, at the heart of it.”
“CAMRA was formed in 1971, initially to ensure that beer drinkers had the opportunity to drink Real Ale in their pubs, which at that time was beginning to disappear. Nowadays, CAMRA has widened its scope to include the issue of misleading dispense, pub preservation, cider and perry, brewery closures, full pint legislation, the smoking debate and much more.
Locally we have around 750 members in the Enfield & Barnet branch, while nationally the Campaign has over 124,000 members (June 2011). If you would like to join us, either go to CAMRA Home, talk to one of the local committee members (Contacts), or come to one of our socials or meetings – listed in Diary.”
