Welcome to Open Mic Vivo

If you enjoy a relaxed evening listening to local talent in a comfortable setting then this is the event for you!

We have been holding Regular Open Mic Nights on a Friday evening in the main hall at Viables since 2015. As of October 2021 we have now moved to Saturday evenings. We have hosted musicians, singers, poets and comedians, though the performers are generally music based. Each performer is normally on stage for 10-15 minutes so there are lots of styles and musicians that may appeal to you.

Entry is just £1 per person and the bar is open throughout the evening. Doors open at 19.30, the performances are generally from 20:00 until 22:30 and the evening closes at around 23.00.
