Come to The Met and be treated like a star!

Our popstar parties put you and your friends centre-stage with a VIP-style recording session in our state-of-the-art music studio.

Enjoy a refreshments on arrival, take part in a photoshoot with a professional photographer at various stunning locations within our beautiful listed building, then record your chosen song with one of our professional studio engineers. Our engineer will work with you throughout the session on your chosen track allowing you to make best use of our fully equipped professional recording studio.

Record your track in our recording studio that has supported artists such as Slow Readers Club and Dutch Uncles.

At the end of your experience, we’ll provide you with:

  • A fully mixed-down version of your recording for you to share and enjoy
  • Your professional photos from the day that will have been edited and touched up as needed
  • Answers to any of your questions about the recording studio and the process of remastering your track

This is an amazing, fun and memorable experience for individuals and groups of all ages and musical abilities. Sing your heart out and be treated like a star!

Frequently asked questions

What will happen during my Popstar Party?

Prior to the experience we will contact you to find out which song you wish to record.

On the day of the experience you will be welcomed to The Met by one of our staff who will help you to feel at ease. They will give you a short tour of the arts centre, you will have photographs taken, and then you will be brought to the recording studio. There you will record the vocals to your song with guidance from a studio engineer. Don’t worry if you’re not a professional singer – we can record several takes of your vocal, and apply effects to it, to help give a professional-sounding result.

At the conclusion of your Popstar Party we will upload a digital copy of your recorded track for you to keep and enjoy.

The minimum age is 8.
