Popwork regularly travel all over the UK, and occasionally venture overseas. In fact, we’d go as far to say that they’re best friends with the UK’s motorway network!

Popwork are always happy to learn a new song for their clients. The band need a minimum of 4 weeks notice to fit the song into their rehearsal schedule. Please remember that although Popwork rehearse regularly, they are also very busy with other song requests and event preparations so learning a new song in a short time scale may not be possible.
It normally takes Popwork 1 hour to set up, but they can do it in about 45 mins if you’re really pressed for time. Set up times are usually dictated by whether your event is running to schedule, ease of access to the venue and the performance area, and the readiness of the performance area itself.
