Hothouse Theatre will organise and run a quarterly open mic story telling session.

The session will be a hybrid event, offering online and live options for participation. There will be various slots available. Open mic slots will be 5 mins. Longer slots will be 10 -15 mins and will be decided beforehand.

Each slot will give the participants the opportunity to tell one story. They may use any approach they wish; stand-up comedy, rehearsed reading, poetry, poetry with preamble, songs. Open micer need to be able to get on stage and complete their story in the allotted time without additional set up.

The sessions are open to all, and it is intended that people from all walks of life and sections of the community will use this as a platform come together and share their culture whilst spinning some cracking yarns.

Offensive or abusive stories will not be tolerated.

Funds raised will go towards covering the cost of putting on the events.
