OpenED mic is simply a night on which any member of the audience can get up on stage and perform. You can do pretty much anything you like – music, comedy, ranting, clowning… we have had all of these.
Happens: Every Thursday, 8pm start.
To perform: Turn up on the night – no pre-registration necessary

Info for performers
It’s fair to say we have a great PA with good monitors so you can actually hear what’s going on. Mics and electro-acoustic guitar provided, but anything goes – comedy, music, ranting, poetry, dance, whatever. You can perform other people’s material or your own. There are 20 inputs, and we welcome drums, amps, props, backing tracks… Get in touch if you have any questions about equipment or anything else.
No pre-booking required – but do turn up before 8:30 to guarantee a slot of up to 20 minutes. You’ll usually get more time later on if it’s not too busy, particularly if you collaborate with others. The night’s been getting busier though so please don’t get offended if you get cut to 10 minutes – it’s never personal.
Info for audience
Bear in mind that there is no screening process here so the quality can vary! You never know what’s going to happen but that’s how we like it. We ask that you refrain from making excessive noise in respect of the performers
