As this year’s Guildford Fringe Festival gets into full swing, we thought it would be appropriate to share a few details about the driving forces behind the largest arts festival in the area, Club Members, Charlotte and Nick Wyschna.
Nick is a County Club Board Member with a particular interest in engaging with potential new members, particularly those of a similar age to himself and Charlotte!
2023 marks the tenth anniversary of the Fringe, and with more performances and venues than ever before, it looks well-set to continue entertaining the people of Guildford and beyond for many more years to come.
But with so much more going on than ‘just’ the festival, it is easy to see why Charlotte and Nick are known as the youngest ‘power couple’ in Guildford.
The pair have owned and run The Fallen Angel, cabaret club at the Angel Hotel on the High Street for a little over 12 months now, building a huge reputation for great entertainment and wonderful hospitality. Charlotte is a much sought after choreographer, as well as a show producer, dancer and dance teacher, while Nick is a talented vocalist and stage actor, who is soon to appear in a major ITV series.
Then there are Gag House Comedy Clubs, showcasing new, emerging and established talent across Surrey and beyond. Former Gag House stars include Joe Lycett, Paul Sinha and Zoe Lyons, all appearing in shows organised by Nick.
And, as if all of this was not enough, the ambitious couple have embarked on yet another adventure as Associate Producers of a new show, starring the one and only Will Young.
‘Song from far Away’ written by Olivier Award-winner Simon Stevens and Mark Eitzel is Will Young’s first live theatre role for almost ten years, and opens at the Hampstead Theatre later this month, ahead of an anticipated UK tour.
Guildford Fringe Festival runs until July 15th at venues across the town and because of the amount of running between shows that Nick will be doing, he is currently trying to lose some weight with a sponsored fundraiser effort in aid of The Fountain Centre.
