Come and read your work
       at the original
Cambridge Open Mic event



CB1 Poetry regularly holds Cambridge's best Open Mic poetry evening, usually on the fourth Tuesday of each month (see the main programme page for all dates and venues).



Come along just to listen to some great poetry, or arrive by 7.45pm to sign up for a 2-minute slot to perform your work before a friendly, attentive audience. Events usually have one or more featured poets, who begin each half before the open mic slots.

Entry is £3 / £2 concessions, readings begin at 8pm and the event finishes shortly before 10pm.
