Taking over The Boileroom’s in house kitchen from Sunday May 2nd will be the incredible food genius of Smokey Joe.
Known for bringing the taste of America to the heart of Guildford, Joe and his team will be bringing mouth watering hand crafted burgers and dogs, loaded and gooey fries, scrumptious out of this world brownies, and so much more right here at The Boileroom.
With a range of options for vegans, veggies, omnivores, carnivores and pescetarians – you’ll be able to dig in either in the comfort of the venue, al fresco in our garden, or even order online or over the phone!
The Boileroom attended The Mayor’s Variety Show on Sunday, which featured an afternoon of fabulous variety in the presence of the Mayor of Guildford.
The evening included performances from Guildford School of Acting, Guildford Shakespeare Company, and Man In The Moon; raising funds for the Mayor’s chosen charities including the Surrey Hills Trust Fund and the Mayor of Guildford’s Local Distress Fund. We also wished a very happy 100th birthday to Honorary Freeman Bill Bellerby MBE; who has championed the creative culture of Guildford throughout the years.
Playing on behalf of The Boileroom was The Project member Joss Malcomson who said “The gig was great! There was a lovely atmosphere. I played my original song ‘Crazy’ because it means a lot to me on a personal level.”

On Monday 27th March, join us for an extraordinary live art performance by the UK’s leading solo bass guitarist, Steve Lawson and acclaimed synaesthetic visual artist Poppy Porter. Poppy, who is part of our Originate Studios here at The Boileroom, has synaesthesia which gives her a visual response to sound, especially music.
As Steve plays, building a glorious, layered, soundscape, Poppy responds through large scale drawings of what she “sees” synaesthetically (shape, colour, movement). Steve then uses the fresh drawings as a visual score, and improvises further. A feedback loop is created between the two of them, and the sound builds the drawing, and the drawing influences the music. Although music and visual art are diverse disciplines, there is a meeting of minds that pushes beyond the physical object or sonic creation, and gives rise to a visual, musical, aural and performance artwork. The resulting blend of electronica, ambient, post-rock & experimental music with the evolving, beguiling visual landscape of Poppy’s art is unique to every performance, and not to be missed.
