A monthly open mic platform to jam, perform and click, every first Thursday of the month.

Every First Thursday of The Month | 200 Degrees Coffee, B3 2BH | 7 til 9pm | Free

Since 2013 Poetry Jam has opened its doors every first Thursday of the month, and has grown in love, attendance and adoration ever since. It's a monthly open mic platform to jam, perform and click with a community of creatives.

Free entry. Starting promptly at 7pm to fit as many performers in as possible (advised to come early to get the best seats).

Want an open mic slot? Arrive 15 minutes before the night kicks off to sign up to the open mic list.

We welcome everyone and embrace key principals of individuality, love, innovation and creativity! The night is a beautiful combination of first time & just-starting-out poets to established & confident poets. It's a non-genre specific open mic night where pieces can go from love, to comedy to very personal topics - we don't audit or alter the artistic work so be prepared and be aware that sensitive topics and explicit words may be used. 


The vibe of Poetry Jam is a completely organic space where artists speak their truth on the mic. Themes go from hard hitting to in love real quick. Here's a selection of videos to give you a little taster of what you're in for.


Poetry Jam is created by the community, for the community.

Want to join the team? Whether you want to help produce, host, film or take photos of the event, we're looking for people that have a love for Poetry Jam and an optimistic attitude. Residents can receive work experience, Beatfreeks perks and lots of love.

The next Poetry Jam will be on Thursday 5th October, let us know you're coming on our Facebook.
