I’m super excited to announce that I’m launching a brand new weekly acoustic open mic night in Hampton Court.

Our first event is Thursday 14th April and we’ll be making some fabulous music every Thursday from then on.

The venue is Henry’s Kitchen, 9 Bridge Road, Hampton Court KT8 9HA.

Everyone is welcome – singers, players, spoken word – whatever your talent, bring it along and show us what you’ve got. And, of course, audience members are always welcomed with open arms!

Entry is free, we’ll provide all the PA, and performers even get 20% off food purchased and eaten on the night.

I cut my performing teeth singing at open mic nights and had some wonderful support along the way so that’s exactly the environment I want to create here. Supportive, friendly and entertaining with no favouritism and no judgements.

It’s important that new performers have the opportunity to get involved, just as much as seasoned musicians, etc; this is a great platform to try out new songs and hone your performance skills. In fact, what better way to learn and be inspired than by watching how others do it. We can all learn something along the way.

I’m running this weekly event with a number of fabulous co-hosts. First up is Sam Scarrott on guitar and vocals, and expect to see my duo partner Lawrence Penfold very soon, too.

What’s your talent? Want to show it off in a supportive environment? There are further details on our Facebook page. You can link directly to details of the event here.
