Singer’s night / open mic

14 December, 7.45pm at Mum’s Bistro

Free admission (collection taken)

Our hugely popular open mic returns this autumn - we can’t wait to see and hear all the talent on our doorstep and across London.

This is for everyone - an eclectic and inspiring mix of traditional folk, blues, americana, sea shanties and singer-songwriters.

We welcome new faces and seasoned players. There are plenty of spots so you can just come along on the night and put your name on the list, or contact us in advance to say you’re coming

Bring friends, come early and grab a table, and enjoy the excellent Greek food at Mum’s.
