Open Mic – Spoken Word

Event details

Glossop Bookfest have started a series of monthly open mics leading up to the first Glossop Bookfest in 2023. Our aim is to attract, encourage and promote local writers such as poets and storytellers to share their work on an open platform. We understand that for many writers this can be a daunting challenge, but they needn’t worry as the audience and fellow performers are an appreciative and welcoming group who will support their efforts. We want to attract as many performers as possible in advance of this years inaugural Bookfest.

Audience no need to book just turn up and enjoy the night.
Sixteen slots are available.
