A free Our Big Gig event at Woking Park on Sunday 19th July 2015, bringing families and the local community together to enjoy live music performances.
Phoenix Cultural Centre has been growing as a cultural hub for Woking over the last 6 years, providing music in the community, a venue for original music, as well as a performance and development centre for new local musicians. Once again this year, we have teamed up with Our Big Gig to host a dedicated event in Woking Park, centred around the Bandstand as a main stage with acoustic performers and buskers at other locations on site.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Since 2013 nearly 400,000 people have attended over 500 Our Big Gig events which have seen a wide variety of musical activities take place in a range of community spaces. Phoenix Cultural Centre has been part of this national initiative since running the Bandstand Marathon in 2012 the national event to close the Paralympic games which preceded Our Big Gig.
Phoenix Cultural Centre is a Community Interest group run entirely by local volunteers including experienced musicians as well as people from business and the Public Sector, who share a passion for original music performance and bringing wellbeing to the community through music activities.
Phoenix Cultural Centre aims to provide a centre for Woking which stages live music and arts events and has space for Community groups to use. A ‘safe space’ where people can experience different types of music and cultural activities alongside space for those who need rooms for workshops, events and support/advice activities.
Steps to get it done:
This campaign is to raise additional funds to be used exclusively to support Phoenix Cultural Centre in staging this event.
