Kaleidoscope: Monthly Open Mic

Event details

A monthly open mic for, by and with young people and adults living with a disability. Every month there will be a daytime session on a Wednesday and an evening session on a Thursday. The stage is yours, here is your opportunity to share a song, poem, comedy sketch or musical performance.

All abilities are 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 event has seen about 60 people in the audience, so there’s lots of room to sit spaced out if you choose to.
