The legendary Phoenix Arts Club are delighted to announce their Autumn Season of socially distanced shows following a successful crowdfunding campaign which has so far raised £2.161 of their £100,000 target.
The Crowdfunder, was launched to become a CIC (community interest company); a special form of non-charitable limited company, which exists primarily to benefit a community and with a view to pursuing a social purpose, rather than to make a profit for shareholders. At launch the team committed to spend the funds raised on further building The Phoenix’s artistic programming (which already at pre-COVID stood at 600 shows a year) in order to ensure work for myriad performers. In addition, the venue will be investing in much-needed research and development to meet changing technology and performance space needs, in order to develop and continue vital community work.
Now after a stella effort raising funds, they will see the fruits of their labour, with the venue hosting famous faces from comedy alongside wondrous musical theatre and cabaret events such as Robin Askwith, Al Murray, Iain Stirling, Elf Lyons, Lou Sanders, Ada Campe, Onyx Lounge, Donna Trump, and A Night At The Soozicials.
Celebrating thirty years of entertaining entertainers, The Phoenix Arts Club is the west end’s multi-award-winning, independently owned and operated entertainment club. Secreted away down the same little side street used in the opening sequence of Harry Potter and tucked beneath The Phoenix Theatre lies The Phoenix Arts Club, the charming escape from the London norm. The lively and nostalgic Theatre Bar & Restaurant is located in the original dressing and rehearsal rooms of The Phoenix Theatre where Laurence Olivier made his debut on stage in the 1930s in “Private Lives” with Noel Coward and Gertrude Lawrence.
Peter Dunbar Development & Marketing Director says:
“We are delighted that The Phoenix Arts Club is back open and welcoming socially distanced audiences to London’s West End! Our Autumn season of events is our most diverse yet, with arena-filling comedians, LGBTQIA+ performers, a variety of cabarets celebrating Black History Month, and newcomer grassroots music showcases filling being put on nightly. Fewer than 70 tickets are available per show, and we’ve been delighted with how many tickets we’ve sold so far, showing that demand for live entertainment is returning.”
As well as the bustling programme of solo shows, The Phoenix Arts Club also has their weekly Thursday, Friday and Saturday Night shows.
