Open mic nights are perfect for singers/players who are looking for a friendly place to perform for the first time, or for more experienced musicians who want to try out new repertoire.

We run our own open mic nights which take place once a month at real live venues locally.

When is it? Our open mic night is run on the last Sunday of every month, this months is 27th May. 

Where is it? The Red Lion

How do I get involved? Call or email us to book a slot in advance. We get busy so make sure you get your name on the list in plenty of time.

What should I perform? You can sing or play any song you like. We welcome everything from pop to jazz, classical and musical theatre. You’ll have a live audience so make sure you’re performance-ready before you sign up. Your private teacher will able to help you prepare.

How much can I sing? We limit slots to 2/3 songs per person, depending on how busy it is.

  1. Hi.
    I would be very interested in doing an open mic. I am 26 years of age, live in Bournemouth. I play the guitar, write some of my own songs and sing. I am passionate about my music. I need to play more as I am only performing once a week at the moment. It can get frustrating as I am no longer involved with the my band and I miss the buzz and excitement.
    I would appreciate if you would confirm possible dates and info.
    Thanks.
