Event description

Description

We're heading into the festive season with a night of fun-filled poetical goodness. We have two FAB feature acts and the usual poetical goodness of the open mic and our open mic feature.

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:
