Our Poetry Open Mic Night returns to Bread + Roses on North Parade, offering a platform to young poets aged 14-19.
This is a supportive and welcoming night of poetry for young people hosted by Bradford poet, Kirsty Taylor. Book a slot in advance, or come along on the night and see how you feel. No previous experience is necessary, whether you are a regular on the Northern poetry scene or have never performed in public before, this is a fantastic opportunity to develop your work, try something new, or just have fun.
Theresa Lola, the 2019/2020 Young People’s Laureate for London, will join us to get this evening of open-mic poetry off to a flying start. Theresa will be with us all evening to offer inspiration, feedback and advice.
Young people under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Parents, caregivers and friends are welcome to come along for support! The cafe will be open for refreshments.
