Dear Members and Friends
It’s strangely a relief to finally have instruction to close down our beloved Phoenix Arts Club issued today by HM Government.
This is something we have campaigned strongly for and by holding out we have also secured financial stability for our wonderful staff.
We will be winding down the club tonight (at a safe distance from each other) and will remain open as long as the beer runs.
It’s tremendously sad for our customers and performers who we know will miss our fantastic entertainment programme – if you’ve booked tickets or made reservations can we suggest you consider another date in the near future – just email your preferred date, probably from 15th May onwards?
The Prime Minister indicated that he would give monthly updates on how the country might be returning to some form of normality as the weeks progress, so we will keep you all up to date should there be advice to open up earlier or later as circumstance dictates.
Thank you everyone for all your kind words of support, we will continue with social media posts and have a cunning plan up our sleeve to continue to entertain you from the comfort of your sofa! Watch this space!
Right, we’re off to face the not-so-final curtain.
