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; 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.

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.
