Event description
We are back for our fifth edition of spoken word at Leicester Contemporary - this time with the awesome CATHI RAE!

About this event

Join hosts Rob Reeves and Rosa Fernandez - and headliner CATHI RAE - for a wonderful evening of words at Leicester Contemporary.

If you would like to perform on the open mic, please email rytsignup@gmail.com beforehand (poets, singers and storytellers are all welcome - in fact, as long as it involves words, you are welcome to open mic!)

There will not be a bar available on the night so please feel free to bring your own refreshments!

Doors: 7.30pm

Event start: 8pm

Please note: due to lots of people signing up for free tickets and then not using them in the past, we have decided to charge a £1 minimum. You may pay more if you wish, but there will also be a Pay as You Feel option on the night and a raffle in order to cover our small running costs. However, please don't feel obliged to pay more than £1 if that's what you feel comfortable paying. We would rather have you there!
