Showcase nights

We kick off on Sunday 1st May from 1 to 4pm with a Spoken Word Showcase bringing together a wonderful selection of beautiful humans.
Pete Cox an artist, poet and the creator and curator of Innerverse.
Tara Bernadette Egan an expressive poet, thought provoking and instantly relatable.
Then no strangers to the Fiery Bird we welcome Elaine McGinty and Joe Buckley who bring poetry to music.
Elaine is a poet/musician/community activist, Joe is a musician and composer. They started working together in 2010 in the IPO Mob which became Phoenix Chroi, whose songs were based on Elaine’s poetry and in 2019 they started performing as a duo where Joe’s bass lines accompany Elaine’s poetry.

Culture Recovery Fund Award

We are very excited to hear that we have been awarded Government funding thanks to the DCMS (Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee) Culture Recovery Fund this means we can continue to write campaigns and fund bids and get ready to make an amazing space for our Woking community to enjoy next year.

#HereForCulture #LetsCreate 

Culture creates jobs, supports livelihoods, and brings joy to everyone. The UK leads the world in the creative industries and we can all feel pride in that.

Now, in these challenging times, it’s everybody’s turn to show our support for culture. With an unprecedented investment through the Culture Recovery Fund, the government is #HereForCulture so it can continue to weather the storm of coronavirus and come back stronger.

And we are #HereForCulture too.

#HereForCulture is a movement that unites the public, government and cultural organisations in support of our fantastic cinemas, theatres, music venues, museums, galleries and heritage.

By being #HereForCulture, we aren’t just supporting the people in the industry, we’re also supporting communities across the country.

Thank you to everyone for your continued support can’t wait to welcome you next year.

Gig Announcements

There is so much in the pipeline, BUT we still are waiting on the YourFund decision on our community venue refit from Surrey County Council , no work can begin on the venue until we know the outcome.

We have submitted all the information requested and look forward to hearing soon.

So we have been trying to reschedule and move our booked shows. Unfortunately for all concerned we have had to cancel 2 shows, move 3 to a different venue and reschedule one of the dates.

We are really sad that Cut Capers and Hannah Moule and the Moulettes have had to cancel because of the venue not being ready.

We have worked really hard to find alternative space for the gig but with no other venues available to accommodate them and their touring schedules not coinciding with reschedule dates we have no choice.

Both bands have been incredible about this and we thank them for their understanding. We hope next year we can rebook them when we are fully open!

You should have received an email about a refund from Seetickets. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Unfortunately we couldn’t find another venue locally for the Hang Massive gig so the gig will now be taking place at Ashcroft Arts Centre in Fareham. Tickets for this gig will still be valid but refunds will be issued if you can no longer make it.

We are delighted to have been able to move the Kristin Hersh gig to the fantastic brand new, Buzz Theatre in Woking, and we have been able to negotiate a discounted meal offer at the Italian Kitchen restaurant next door for anyone with tickets to this show. Buzz Theatre is in the Peacocks Shopping Centre, Commercial Way Woking GU21 6YA

We will update the location of Dani Larkin’s gig as soon as we have it finalised.

John Otway will be rescheduled to 9th December.

All other shows stay the same.

Hopefully we will have more news soon.
