Time to start booking your slot for our annual Tinsel Tales open mic event. The first part of the afternoon (2pm-3pm) will feature a performance by the Word Factory hosted by a festively waistcoated Marc Sherland.
Open mic slots (Five minutes each, please time your work beforehand) are available between 3.30 and 5.15pm. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to book a slot, or take pot luck on the day (but it helps us a lot if you book beforehand). General theme is the festive season (and its unfestive aspects!), midwinter etc. Both prose and poetry welcome provided you keep in the time limits.
