Ticket Information

Ticket Type Sales End Price Fee Quantity
Low waged & Early bird
Super-discounted tickets for people on a tight-budget or those who want to help us to keep down our costs by purchasing early.
Ended £4.10 £0.86
Normal advance ticket
The absurdly affordable non-discounted ticket. Although it's more than our early birds out there, who managed to catch the worm, this is still a good late-birdy deal - perhaps not the worm, but certainly some discarded left-over kebab.
20 Feb 2019 £5.80 £0.97
On the day
Still great value obviously, our on-the-day tickets cost a fair bit more to cover our advertising spend that will ensure enough people come to make this a truly great event.
Not Started £7.20 £1.07
Donate to The Art House
If you think our event tickets are far too cheap for what's on offer, why not top it up here? The more you can afford, the more we can do.

Event Details

In Their Own Words is an open, fun and friendly event for ANYONE who wants to share the words of their favourite writers. It doesn't matter whether it's from a poem, a short story, a novel, a or play, or a song lyric. Anyone can come along and have fun sharing a favourite piece of writing and also get to hear new writing, shared by other people.

In Their Own Words is NOT an open mic event to perform your own words. (If you want to perform your own words we recommend the Arthouse's excellent Moving Voices open mic night on the last Friday of each month)

On the night, people who want to will have a maximum of 3 minutes each to read their favourites. Even, if you don't want to read, you can still listen and join in the fun. Or, you can bring your favourite piece of writing and someone else can read it for you. In Their Own Words is a friendly, welcoming event, open to ANYONE who wants to have a fun evening, sharing good words and discovering new writing with other word-lovers.
Whether you like Zadie Smith or The Smiths
Isabel Allende or Alain de Botton,
If you like Bob Dylan or Dylan Thomas,
Hip-hop or Gerald Manley Hopkins,
Winnie the Poe or Edgar Allen Pooh,
In Their Own Words has the words for you.

Accessibility info:-

Events are generally suitable for adults, young people and older children - children must be accompanied by an adult at all times, however. Young children are also welcome to come along but be aware some poems and songs may contain adult content (although we try to keep these until after children have left!)

Most events are held on our first floor, accessible by a wide staircase with a sturdy banner. Comformatable seating is provided.  We regret that, due to space and other constraints, we are generally unable to relocate our events to the ground floor for those who require ground level access - so sorry

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Events are open to all ages unless otherwise stated, however please note that our mission is to provide creative activity primarily to adults, therefore most of our programme is aimed at 16 years and over.  Performances may include stronger language.
