Help this "home of theatre" community venue complete its refurbishments with the only full-size THEATRE CURTAIN outside a West End theatre!

by Phoenix Arts Club in London, England, United Kingdom

The Phoenix Arts Club has been an essential part of the arts community for over 30 years. Independently owned and operated, we're Time Out's 'Most Loved Late Night Venue' and currently programme over 600 performances a year, providing a vital stepping stone for artists and performers.

Over the past year, the Club has undergone essential refurbishment works including: 

* Extension of the performance space with the removal of old walls, rewiring of electrics, painting throughout, and restoration of the original Art Deco floor.

* Installation of a second bar with a copper top - hand-built from scratch by our Scottish brother-in-law - luckily he's a master carpenter!

* The creation of a brand new tech booth with updated lighting rig, sound equipment and software, providing both artists and patrons with the best experience possible.

We have managed to complete these refurbishments with the support from our close supporters including Marstons Brewery.   

Now it's YOUR turn!

We are hoping to install the ONLY full-size theatre curtain outside a West End theatre into our premises.  Whether you work Front of House or Back Stage, or are simply a theatre love - this full-size theatre curtain -  that opens, closes and swags at each side - will be your chance to take your encore bows nightly! All you will need are the flowers!

But that's not all. Paying tribute to our heritage as the original rehearsal rooms for the Phoenix Theatre upstairs, we are featuring the original artwork for the Phoenix Theatre's 'safety curtain', on the back.  

The curtain will be lined with soundproof material so we can return to a "two-space" venue for smaller more intimate cabarets and performances. Or you could book the "through the curtain experience" for your next private party!

The total cost for this is £15,000. 

If we exceed the £15,000 threshold, anything over and above will go towards the refurbishment of our toilets, improving accessibility to the venue and funding our daytime 'Creative Hub', a free to use workspace offering free tea, coffee and hi-speed wifi.

By donating all will receive an invitation to the grand 'curtain opening' Gala Night with live cabaret, drinks, West End celebrities and surprises!

Donate more and you can be part of the Phoenix Arts Club's history forever with your name engraved on a brass plaque and placed on the pillar right next to the curtain. 

We can't finish these refurbishment works without your help.  It's time to "draw" upon your goodwill (ha!) to keep the home that's been "Entertaining Entertainers" unique and special for another 30 years!

Thank you
