A Date For Your Diary...


Thursday, 21/02/2008 at Whitechapel Gallery - 80-82 Whitechapel High Street, E1 7QX

If you haven’t experienced an Apples & Snakes open mic yet, you haven’t spent the evening in the Whitechapel Gallery’s lovely cafĂ©-bar, the air thick with poems and the whole joint jumpin’ with poets of every conceivable kind. An Apples open mic is, indeed, the place where the unlikeliest of poetic bedfellows can share a stage. If you fancy it, please don’t hold back. It could be the start of a beautiful relationship with the UK spoken-word scene. Next Thursday's verbal bonanza features guest slots from Jake Lawy, Tamsin aka ConciseOne and Fassbinder. Ms Jo Overfield and Ms Cherryl Scott will be the hostesses with the mostesses.

Bookings: Arrive early to sign up for open mic slot
