Now Serving Four Counties!



Our new timetaBle from April 2021


Dear Friends,

As you all know, the performing arts are a strong keystone of what we do at Phoenix Rising and we have some wonderfully talented group members, all of whom also happen to have support needs and disabilities. But they don't like to let that get in their way!

Following on from the huge success of our last public stage show 'A Night at the Musicals' which many of you attended and supported, we plan to present our own take on the 'Aladdin' story in the way only our fabulous performers can!

Be prepared for an evening of fun, laughter, drama, music, dance & song for what will be a unique experience!

We can't do this with our usual funds so we need as much help as possible to make this dream a reality!

We're just about to launch a CROWDFUNDER to help us realise our group members' dreams of staging their own unique public performance of our Pantomime in 2021!

Our target is £4,000. You can start donating from 30th March for 8 weeks.

We really hope you can help us to make this dream a reality for 2021! OH! YES YOU CAN!

Here is the link to the Crowdfunder site:

Thank you all very much for your support!

We provide a range of creative and community based activities for adults with disabilities and support needs.

Based at York House, a wonderful venue with an excellent reputation for its community based work, in the historic and picturesque location of Stony Stratford - "The Jewel of Milton Keynes".

We are just a few minutes walk from all the amenities the town has to offer and only four miles from the centre of Milton Keynes.

Our programme includes: Art, Crafts, Photography, Performing Arts, Cooking, Out & About activities in the community. These include Swimming and Phoenix Wild, an animal interaction session.

We also offer a fortnightly Saturday programme with an exciting range of activities and visits.

PHOENIX RISING:MK was established in 2015 by Directors Adrian Pinckard & Sarah Bament, both of whom have over 30 years experience in teaching and educational management in both the mainstream and learning disability sectors. The staff team are also highly experienced and passionate about working with adults with support needs.

We also run regular social opportunities including the popular monthly ‘Open Mic’ evenings at The Cock Hotel in Stony Stratford.

We are a Community Interest Company (CIC) therefore all profits are re-invested back into our service.

"Every young person with any needs should spend at least one session with Phoenix Rising: it makes you realise that there are groups that actually care for and nurture our precious young people xxxx " (Parent)

"Great stuff! May you still continue rising!"
