Event description

Description

This is the FINAL Word Search LIVE event at The Brook, in Wallington for 2017. However, never fear we will be back in 2018 and more events shall be appearing shortly. #WatchThisSpace

The evening is split into two parts.

First Half

The first half is you guys - the spoken word open mic'ers. This is your moment to FIND and SPEAK your WORDS.

Rules are:-

  • One poem per slot.
  • Can be on anything you like at all.
  • Make us laugh, cry or stun us into silence - your choice.
  • Have fun and enjoy the atmosphere.

So, at the end of the open mic segment of the evening the audience will decide which open mic act/poem was their favourite by level of noise and the winner gets a 10 minute feature slot at the next Word Search LIVE event.

Sign-up for the open mic by purchasing an Open Mic ticket up until 2pm on the day of the event, or sign-up on the day (space permitting).

We operate a first come first served process in regards to this. There are 12 spots up for grabs so don't miss out!

*********************************************************

Second Half

This half is the feature half where we have fab featured acts for you:

Jamal Khan

With an impressive plethora of platforms featuring under his name, he boasts recognition from some of the most well established media outlets such as ITV & Sky News. In the coming year, he aims to release his debut book 'Words Within Walls' that'll detail his experience of going through the criminal justice system through various forms such as daily diary entries & poems.

Laurie Ogden

Her previous plays include TWIX (****), and Colder Water (*****). Laurie is currently developing a new play as a Jerwood/Arvon Mentee, and is working on her debut poetry pamphlet.

******************************************************

The evening is hosted by poet and spoken word artist Sarah Hobbs.

And all of this for only £3 (£2 for Open Mic'ers) - bargain. Either book online or you can pay on the door (we take card and cash payments).
