After Sunday’s successful Charity Concert for Keele University Cancer Research, Bookmark Bloxwich Theatre, in Elmore Row, Bloxwich, is keeping up the tempo with more events in November.

The venue’s popular series of Open Mic Nights continues to offer a great place for singers, songwriters and musicians to come and play, jam and try out songs on the theatre’s full PA system.  With FREE entry, what better way to showcase local talent? And if you don’t play, why not just come along to enjoy the vibe?

There’s an adult Open Mic Night this Friday 11 November, doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 8pm.  That’s followed by a Youth Open Mic Night for young people on 25 November, doors open at 6pm and the show begins at 6.30pm.
