The Phoenix Rises

The Royal Festival Hall is hosting an evening of comedy, music and cabaret in aid of Battersea Arts Centre. All proceeds will go towards the cost of restoration and repairs following the fire which swept through the BAC building last month.

The fundraiser will be hosted by Arthur Smith, with comedy from Stewart Lee, Tim Key, Bridget Christie, Mackenzie Crook and Jackson's Way, plus music from the Knee High Band and BAC Beatbox Academy. Other acts include actor Toby Jones (Harry Potter and The Hunger Games) Will Adamsdale (Jackson's Way) and Forced Entertainment.

The Phoenix Fund was set up after the fire of 13 March which destroyed the historic Grand Hall, a space that has served Battersea's community for 120 years. The fund has already raised over 700,000 and needs around 298,870 to reach its 1million target. The support received so far includes 100,000 from individuals and organisations, 100,000 from Battersea Power Station and a 500,000 government contribution.

Tickets for the event on Saturday 18 April at 7.30pm range in price from 10 to 100, with the top price VIP tickets guaranteeing the best seats in the house and special treats on the night. Booking via The Southbank Centre, booking fee applies.
