This week the Penmar Community Arts Society announced their most recent project which involves opening up the Flamingo venues to bring live music, fundraisers and special events to Whalley. I am working with David Geertz on outreach to the Surrey community about this project and about opportunities for corporate and private groups to use these spaces.
An article about the project is published in the Surrey Now this week https://www.surreynowleader.com/entertainment/surreys-flamingo-bars-will-fly-again-with-live-music-and-more/
Penmar Community Arts Society will be managing this operation and booking bands and groups to use the venues (we are taking down the stripper poles). As well as fulfilling our own mandate of making live music and events accessible in small communities we are contributing to the revitalization of a neighborhood that is in need of more arts and culture and stimulation for local business. Private Venues for Fundraisers:
An interesting opportunity for you is the potential for an event in an exclusive venue for your group. We have three venues on site and are very flexible to accommodate the type of event that will work for you. We have nightclub style, pub style or music hall style venues.
We have a permanent casino set up on site. There are no delivery or setup fees, and you do not need any additional bar licensing or insurance. Our venues are close to Skytrain, have secured parking and we can offer no-fee online ticket sales. All of our venues have a fully stocked and staffed bar, a performance stage, a dance floor and sound and light systems.
This is a great way for you to hold a unique, private event while giving back to the community. We can also help you book bands or other entertainment as a stand-alone event or along with a casino night. We are creative and can help you theme your night as well.
