We've signed the lease!

We are so pleased to be able to tell you that we have signed a lease to take over Quake nightclub in central Woking! At last!

The situation is that we have the lease on this building for two years. We have to treat it as a pilot project, to highlight 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, and we hope to create something to last for many generations ahead.

Thank you so much to everyone who has already sent good wishes. Lots of people are asking how they can help, which is great!

In the immediate future we are working on cleaning the building up. There’s a lot to be done. If anyone can help that would be great, and if anyone knows of people with specific skills such as electrics, plumbing, building, cleaning carpets etc., we would love to get everything ship-shape before installing new equipment and opening for our first event.

Please either message us via our Facebook page or email phoenixculturalcentre@yahoo.co.uk.
