On The Mic - Poetry & Spoken Word Night

7pm (doors at 6pm)

PAYF online // £2 on the door

Leeds Poetry Festival are back for ON THE MIC, our monthly spoken word and poetry open mic night at Left Bank. This month, they’re joined by Spoke Poetry Hub and three incredible Spotlight artists!

Spoke Poetry Hub is a community-based organisation run by Bradford-based artists. They aim to bring together emerging and established poets and performing artists to reach new people and places with poetry and spoken word. As experienced speakers, educators and facilitators, they deliver spoken word workshops in various settings across education, rehabilitation and corporate sectors, as well as broadcast a monthly radio show via BCB 106.6FM.

Join us for some amazing spotlight performances and emerging artists on the third Tuesday of every month. Each month is a little different, with local poets and groups hosting and performing, but there will be slots open every month for anyone to perform. IF you want to get yourself a slot then drop an email to or simply come along on the night to enjoy a night full of spoken word and poetry.
