Thank you so much to everyone who has sent good wishes both on this page and messages on the signing of our lease for the Quake venue - we are sorry not to have responded to every one individually but we are so thankful for your support

Lots of people are asking how they can help

In the immediate future we are meeting 6.30pm -10pm Tues, Weds, Thurs this week to give it a clean up. There’s a lot to be done. If anyone can help that will be great, if anyone knows of people with specific skills - electrics, plumbing, building cleaning carpets etc we can get this done before installing new equipment and opening.

The situation is that we have the lease on this building for two years, so we have to treat it as a pilot project to convince of the need for a permanent live music, cultural and community venue in the centre of woking run by and for everyone here. The short lease cuts out some of the national grant opportunities we had lined up but with the support of the community using it, suggesting and attending events we can make it work

We are a registered community interest company that puts any profit back into supporting the community in this venture so there is somewhere for everyone for many generations ahead.
Please either message this page or phoenixculturalcentre@yahoo.co.uk FTAO Joe

We have been asked to share this for Mamacapella a local choir, if you can help or know someone who can please get in touch with them on the email below

www.facebook.com/mamacapella

“Sadly it is almost time to say goodbye to Fi, so we are searching for a new conductor.

We meet on a Monday morning from 9.30 in term time. We have a regular group of mums who come every week, plus some others who come on a drop in basis. On average we have 7-10 people each week, and the room will hold a maximum of 15.

It would be a perfect opportunity for someone who wants to learn about conducting or practise their skills in a real environment, or an experienced conductor who wants a more relaxing Monday morning. Fi is happy to go through what kind of level the choir is at and how it operates in more detail with any applicants.

If you would be interested, please email us at mamacapella@gmail.com.
If it isn't for you, please share our post to help in our search.

Thank you!”

Thanks to everyone who came to the leaving party last night we had a great time and great to share it and memories with such lovely people, some fantastic music happened too 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less

Yesterday we were so lucky to host Louise Jordan and her No More Petticoats workshop and performance - it was a mesmerising, moving, uplifting event - absolutely amazing. We are so lucky that she has agreed to come back later in the year and do another show for us, this highly sought after artist is so booked up - to get her once is great but a repeat performance - you honestly don’t want to miss her when she comes back it was an incredible show with stories of amazing inspirational women who made history and the songs she wrote about their lives - moving, uplifting, heartbreaking and inspirational
And the first artist we have ever had who had her own brand of beer as part of the merch!
