This month we're wiping the chalkboard clean and taking you to school for a fully scholastic evening of poetic excellence! We'll be having assembly on alliteration, a class on creativity, and lectures on linguistic levity as we continue to explore the use of Hip Hop culture and Rap Poetics as a means of teaching, learning, and sharing knowledge.
THEME - Art Class
FEATURES - TBA
£5 standard (£3 Open Mic’ers)
Doors open from 6:30pm, 7pm start.
Whether you’re a rapper, poet, musician, actor, or storyteller of any kind, you’re welcome to 3 minutes on the mic to do your thing.
We have 10 Open Mic tickets available in advance, so if you don't get a slot ahead of time, arrive at 6:30 to sign up on the door. (5 spots available OTD, plus reserves)
(If you have a backing track/projections/any other technical requirements, please send us through all files/beats at least two days before the event.)
As always we encourage anyone and everyone to come and take part whether you're a seasoned MC or just want to try something new. Our rap cypher is space for anyone to shoot your shot and spit your piece over a selection of beats from our DJs. Come and enjoy the vibes and join the conversation by jumping on the mic or standing back and soak it up!
The PTP Cypher takes place after the main event until 11pm, hosted by The Repeat Beat Poet, with SolomonsSoul on the decks.
27a Dalston Lane.
