The BOILEROOM – Donate
Help us to continue to support the arts in our local community.
We need your help to continue with this work and develop our new creative space, we love what we do with a passion that is limitless.
We are a music and arts community hub in Guildford. For 9 years we have been producing live music events at our 300 cap music venue. Over the years we have developed our programming considerably, bringing national and international touring acts to Guildford like Soweto Kinch, Ed Sheeran, Catfish & The Bottlemen, Reel Big Fish, The Bronx, First Aid Kit (to name a few); as well as booking for external events like The Boileroom stage at Redfest, Guildford Beer Festival, Magic Summer Live, and Staycation Godalming.
We are avid supporters of our local creative community and have many projects that we run, including: SoCiMa (Social Cinema), Punk Rock Yoga, What Is Your Activism?, Women's Equality Party Guildford, Originate Studios, Craft Club, The Project, The Practitioners-Creative Collective, Sunday Assembly Guildford, Surrey SOUP, The Big Draw, and Sisters of Surrey.
More recently in 2014/2015 we were awarded the title of Best Bar None overall winner and also picked up the award for Best Independent Pub. Unanimously selected by the judges, we were praised for exceeding Best Bar None criteria, for its excellent community and charity engagement, and for investment in young people. We were also applauded for taking the emphasis of pub life away from ‘vertical drinking’ by providing a place of entertainment that offered a positive and safe experience to our customers.
We were also the 100th venue to be awarded Bronze status from Attitude Is Everything, an organisation that improves deaf and disabled people’s access to live music – inclusivity is really important to us, we believe that there should be no barriers for anyone to enjoy live music.
We have developed and thrived without financial aid; but due to many factors this has become increasingly difficult, and to ensure our survival we are reaching out to our local community.
