Hunting Originals

 Spotlight is a cave of ideas, 
always on the hunt for new and 
experimental writers and 
performers at it's 
Open Mic spots. 

On the 3rd Friday of every 
month the event gives a 
platform to poets, writers, 
comedians, ranters and 
musicians. 

It's a dynamic platform on 
which a wide variety of aspiring 
writers are positively encouraged to experiment with words,
music and performance.                                            

 

Open-Mic

  Each Spotlight event opens with
  an Open Mic session (8.30 -
  9.00pm) featuring six 5 minute
  spots open to anyone. As these
  are very popular you may want
  to e-mail to book an Open Mic
  spot in advance:

  Following the Open Mic session,
