Community Groups

Not only are we an established live venue, we also host community groups and classes in our Ballroom on a weekly basis. Take a look at what we have to offer below:


Monday’s 7.30pm – 9pm

The Fishpond Choir, with its eclectic repertoire of world music, is unique. The choir started up in the Fishpond pub in 2001 as a mixed, open access community choir.  Nobody knows if it was the country’s first pub choir but founder members like to think so.

The choir, which is about fifty strong, sings a wide selection of material which includes folk music from around the world, light classical pieces and items specially written or arranged by Dana and Anne. However, its first love is African music – mostly from the south of the continent. Choir members work very hard with Dana and Anne to produce as authentic a sound as possible.

Visit the choirs website for further information about joining and getting involved.



PolefitWednesday’s & Thursday’s 7.30pm – 9pm

Pole dancing classes offer a combination of dancing and gymnastics exercises. The classes increase core and general body strength by using the body itself as resistance, while toning the body as a whole.

Pole dancing has gained popularity recently as a form of exercise, with increased awareness of the benefits to general strength and fitness.

Learning Pole dancing techniques is a fun and friendly way to keep fit and is open to everyone, no matter what your age, size or shape.

We have 4 brand new dual line 45 mm stainless steel X-Poles that all have spin/static function and stand at 4.5 metres tall! There will be opportunity to book private/small group lessons before the group class on both nights, or at other times dependant on room/instructor availability.

To book your first free trial class please contact Karrie via the instructors website.
