Over the last few months the Phoenix team have been working hard to put together a exciting new programme for Autumn which, as promised, is bigger and better than ever! It is now at the printers but you can get a sneak peek at the finished product by clicking the link below! August is traditionally our quiet month at The Phoenix when all our volunteers and staff get a well earned rest after a packed Spring/ Summer season, so feel free to pop in for a chat, see what we have got going on and pick up your paper copy. Happy Holidays everyone!
Very soon we will be announcing our full Autumn Season. In the mean time here is a sneak peek of what we have lined up!
Milton Jones is back on the road with another tour but unfortunately it isn't quite ready yet. Don't panic though he's a professional, it's the guy with the loud shirts and messed up hair from Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo, Michael McIntyre's Roadshow and multiple series on Radio 4. Milton will be performing a ' Work in Progress' of his new show Milton Jones and the Temple of Da... on Thursday 25th September at 8pm.

The Phoenix Players are back with their Autumn show, spooky classic 'The Ghost Train'. Written by Writer and Actor Arnold Ridley (Dad's Army) it is an enthralling thriller with a twist in the tail.
Night-time in a dark and gloomy station waiting room on a branch line in the middle of nowhere. A group of strangers stranded with only each other for company. A surly stationmaster who won't stay on the station overnight and who insists of telling ghost stories. The stage is set for drama!
Hazel O'Connor will be teaming up with legendary performers saxophonist Clare Hirst (Bellestars, Communards, David Bowie) and Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics) on keyboards for this intermate performance in The Phoenix Theatre. Expect a soulful introspective dip into Hazel's stunning portfolio, the old, the new and stories from along the way. A sumptuous evening of some of the greatest songs of the 20th Century delivered with passion and fire. With a special Meet & Greet immediately after the show you're in for a treat!
