Visit us By interest/activity Arts and culture Verve Open Door - Poetry Open Mic Night Verve Open Door is a chance for you to try open mic poetry and spoken word for the first time, or share crafted existing poems that you've been performing for years. The open mic is all about you, wherever you are on your spoken word journey. We will be hosting this event in partnership with Birmingham giant Verve Poetry Festival. Verve operates a safe space for poetry performance and encourages voices from people of all backgrounds - everyone is welcome! Join us on the third Tuesday of each month to socialise and jump on the mic, or just listen in to the eclectic and diverse voices of Brum. This will be a purely open mic event, with no headliner or featured poet, so there will be plenty of time for everyone to have a go. Each person has 3 minutes to share their work and 10 slots are available to book prior to the event, or you can sign up on the night. We will be running this as a pay-what-you-feel event, with all proceeds going towards supporting The Hive. You can find out more about getting to The Hive and what facilities we have on site here. Doors will open from 7pm and the event will run from 7:30pm - 9:30pm. Refreshments will be provided. Verve Open Door 2022 dates: 17th May 21st June 19th July 16th August 20th September 18th October 15th November 20th December Booking for this event has now closed.
