The Candle Club Open Mic

Don't Miss Out
Time: Monday 8.30pm
Cost: Free Entry!

If you think you may be able to entertain by playing an instrument, singing, reciting poetry, monologues, juggling, whatever, but have never been given the chance… well you have now!

Come and entertain ‘The Candle Club’

Each ‘act’ gets 10 minutes on stage (8 minutes plus 2 minutes to set-up) which is timed by traffic lights (when the light goes amber you’ve got 2 minutes!). When it is red your time slot has finished. Acts with more than one person are very welcome but you must be able to set up in 2 minutes so, unfortunately, drum kits can’t be used.

Most instruments can be accommodated without amplifiers but we do recommend guitars with pick-ups as the quality of sound will be much better given the amount of time allowed for setting up.

Also, if you are singing, please position yourself as close to the microphone as possible. We will help you setup but try and make sure the mic is in right position and you are comfortable before starting.

To be sure of taking part please arrive by 8pm.

(If you don’t have any yearnings to get on stage then we would pleased to see you as part of the audience!)
