Dates for Your Diary

We shall be giving a “trial run” to a new venue, the Phoenix Artist Club – off Charing Cross Road – on the first two Mondays in June (Monday,7th and Monday, 14th) 7.15pm for 7.45pm as now. Details are as follows:


Address: 1, Phoenix Street,

Charing Cross Road,

London, WC2H 0DT


The Phoenix Artist Club is a basement club on the corner of Phoenix Street and Charing Cross Road. It is under the Phoenix Theatre (where “Blood Brothers” is running) just north of Cambridge Circus and practically opposite Foyles. The club consists primarily of a bar room with a long well-appointed bar along one wall, and a private room which is adjacent to the bar area and which is where we shall be located.

Some of the plus points of this venue are as follows:

A reasonably regular, ample space for our activities with no sight line problems, good acoustics and comfortable seating.
No charge: the room is free. The ethos of the club is to be a place for people from the arts world to meet and network.
Good ambience, atmosphere, “gemutlichkeit”, “feng shui” etc., both in the room and in the adjoining bar
Parking for bicycles and motorcycles in the immediate vicinity
Some free parking after 6.30pm in New Compton Street nearby.
Close to Tottenham Court Road and Leicester Square tubes.
Food served until 9.30pm. Good standard pub food (i.e. fish and chips, sausage and mash, various burgers, omelettes etc) available at £7 give or take, and some cheaper snacks.
Wine, however, is expensive (£5.50 for a small glass). Wine drinkers should get together and buy a bottle to share.

A full announcement will be made and more details given at the reading next Monday (May 24th) at the Green Man.
