Phoenix Rising - free summer party on 17 July

Woking will be celebrating its fifth year of having a FREE community live music event from 12-7pm on 17 July in Woking Park!

A group of local people and organisations led by The Phoenix Cultural Centre CIC are hosting 'Phoenix Rising', a day showcasing the feature acts from the Phoenix Centre's well-known nights providing a variety of excellent, original, emerging live music. Find out more (and invite your friends) using the Facebook event page.

The day also includes a songwriting workshop, try-an-instrument sessions with tips and encouragement from local and national gigging musicians, gong and singing bowl demonstrations, as well as spoken word and poetry.

Check out this YouTube video made by our community partners at We Love Woking for a taste of last year's event. This year, it promises to be even bigger and better!

There will also be food at reasonable prices, sold by a variety of local producers (including Thai, Italian, Caribbean, Indian food and cupcakes), a bar from Soda & Rye, stalls from local voluntary organisations and vintage and retro sales. A unique feature is the sale of merchandise from the bands that have played at Phoenix Centre events, since it was started in 2010 doing pop up original live music events around the town.

The event will be streamed live on Radio Woking as well so can be heard well past the Borough!

The event is put on by musicians and community workers who are residents of the town and is free so that the whole community in Woking can feel welcome. It is a place to come with friends and family and relax and enjoy the excellent live music that Woking has to offer.

To keep it free, the event is funded through donations. If you can support us, please visit the crowdfunding website.
