  • Garret Theatre

A monthly open mic for, by and with young people and adults living with a disability. The stage is yours, here is your opportunity to share a song, poem, comedy sketch or musical performance. All abilities welcome. This is a safe space that gives anybody the opportunity to express themselves.

This is a noisy, energetic community that loves to clap, whoop and encourage anyone to attend as a member of the audience or performer.

This open mic night was founded in 2018 at the second Kaleidoscope Festival by Storyhouse and a band called Dark Arc led by their music teacher Simon Scott.

The Garret Theatre has space for 150 people. The busiest the event has been about a 60 person audience so there is lots of room to sit spaced out if you choose to.
