Poetry Jam 6 Birthday Special

Poetry Jam 6th Birthday Special | Thursday 7th February | 7 'Til Late | Free | Birmingham Town Hall

Poetry Jam 6th Birthday Special hosted at Town Hall by THSH.

We're making Poetry Jam history again. On Thursday 7th February, Town Hall is opening it's doors to mark Beatfreeks' 6th birthday with a massive Poetry Jam, an open mic night like no other - bringing together people from all over the city to jam, perform and support one another. Unfiltered, unapologetic and united. The night is a beautiful combination of first timers and established poets. Everyone is welcome.

You can expect:

  • Open mic performances

  • A resident DJ

  • Cypher to bring the celebration late into the night

  • A few surprises

  • Plenty of vibes throughout the night

This is a night for all of us. Celebrating the people behind the journey, the movement, the legacy of Poetry Jam.

Open Mic

Last year at Poetry Jam V we had an audience of 400+ with only 20 open mic slots available. With so many incredible poets and so little time, we want to make things as fair as possible. At Poetry Jam 6, open mic sign up will be open between 5:45 til 6:15 - we will then have a randomized selection process, and let the chosen performers know before 7pm that they will be performing. 

Open mic sign-up available: 5:45 - 6:15pm (meet in the foyer of Town Hall)
