This Is Just To Say – spoken word open mic night

July 5, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Join us in the library on the first Tuesday of every month to enjoy all manner of word-weaving, story-sharing and spell-casting.

We welcome poets, storytellers, and writers of all kinds to share their work (or the work of others) in a safe, supportive, and inclusive space.

Slots are 5 minutes long, and performers sign up on the door – first come, first served! Performers entry is free!

All very welcome to just come and listen. This event is non-ticketed, with £5 on the door.

Doors at 7.30pm (performers advised to arrive a little earlier!)

Each month we will also showcase the work of a particular creator with an extended set. In July, this will be Stilly’s Terrible Drawn Tales. Stilly has lived in Iffley, Oxford for the past 18 years. Originally from Yorkshire he is a storyteller, poet and illustrator who combines all three arts to create something both traditional and new. Imagine a magic lantern show with a powerpoint projector and you’re nearly there. Think of an episode of the Twilight Zone performed by Stanley Holloway, with pictures by Edward Gorey and words by Roald Dahl, and you’re not even close. Macabre settings, twisted endings and saucy tales to thrill, bewilder and amuse.

Note: there is no bar but the event is BYOB (wine and beer only, no spirits please!) and this event is 18+
