New board member: Justin Coll

Justin brings to our board a wealth of experience from the local arts scene. He used to be festival co-ordinator for the award-winning family festival, Guilfest, running the most diverse number of stages from local music to national heroes, from comedy to the theatre. He also managed press and was the online community manager for the social media.

He set up and ran the Palace in Aldershot as a live music venue and helped the Nepalese community open their community venue, the Empire, in Aldershot.

Justin now runs Woking’s community radio station – Radio Woking, and the Woking Planetarium, from the Winston Churchill School where he runs the IT systems at the school. He also chairs the Aldershot Civic Society, where he lives with his wife and son and runs the main stage at Aldershot’s Picnic and Pop Festival.

Born in Woking, Justin is very excited to be involved with and help the Phoenix Cultural Centre & Fiery Bird in its journey onwards, and looks forward to the many amazing things this venue can be in the future.
