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.

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.

Dates for the rest of the year are as follows:
July 2nd
September 10th
October 8th
November 12th 
December 10th

In addition, we will be running two additional dates at our Eastrop building and would really appreciate your support to build an audience there too! The dates are 29th October and 26th November.

Check the Home Page Coming Soon... section for upcoming dates. For more information contact us at office@viables.org.uk or call us on 01256 473634.


Whether you are a seasoned professional, beginner or an up and coming star, come and have a go!

A full PA system is provided, all you need to bring is your instrument and any pedals, etc, you need to produce your particular sound. Please bring your own microphone if you prefer not to share.

If you are interested in performing, please get in touch on the dedicated Facebook page and we can answer any specific questions.
