About this Event

Our December instalment of Word Search LIVE takes place on Wednesday 18 December. We look forward to seeing you there.

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:

Five minute 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.

At the end of the open mic segment, the audience will vote which open mic act/poem was their favourite and the winner gets a 10 -15 minute feature slot at the next Word Search LIVE event. So it's all up for grabs!

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). Email wordsearchlive@gmail.com to forward book a slot.

We operate the open mic on a first come, first served basis. There are 12 spots up for grabs - don't miss out!
