NEXT SALON: December’s Festive Open Mic Salon

Tuesday the 14th of December, 2021, 6pm, Live and on Zoom


Now the Bells of Advent are ringing, our December Salon has a festive feel, with an Open Mic presentation of Christmas stories, poems, and crackers!

For December, we’re ringing the changes a little. Since we have to hold our Salon earlier in the month, risking clashing with so many other events, we’re going to have a hybrid Open Mic evening. For the ‘formal’ part of the event, some of our friends and members will share their writing, whether poetry, prose, or spoken word.

Once again, our friends at the Outhouse are going to host us, and we are happy to offer a livestream for those who cannot attend in person. We will be in the upstairs Function Room, where there is a projection screen for our online performers. Most slots are taken up now, but if you’d like to be on the reserve list with something festive up your sleeve, e-mail us with the subject ‘December Salon Slot.’

As always, there will be a wine reception, and plenty of time for mingling before the Open Mic presentation begins. We will open the zoom at 6.45, and the Open Mic will begin at 7pm for just an hour, after which online attendees are welcome to hang around in the zoom for more informal chatter, which we can monitor. We’ll continue to mingle and chat at the Outhouse, and if anyone has information to share we can have Notes of Interest.

How it works...

6.pm: Wine Reception at the Outhouse

6.45: Open the Zoom meeting (check for tech issues)

7.pm: Festive Open Mic – with Anita Govan as MC

8.pm: Live Mingling, and Zoom chat*

Tickets are available from Eventbrite – please state which ticket type you require.

All Salon Events are free. We invite a small donation (£3) for the glass of wine at the reception, or encourage people to buy us a coffee to help fund our work.


And if you’re looking for a perfect Christmas present, don’t forget our lovely anthology of writing from our friends and members, Lost, Looking & Found. You can purchase a copy from our shop.

We look forward to seeing you in person or in the zoom-room!


*We acknowledge that some people prefer to attend the Zoom without video, so we invite people to use the ‘comments’ section to give input, paste relevant links, and ask questions. We encourage attendees to say ‘bye’ if they so wish when departing! We will save any links from the comments to share to our mailing-list and social media, and we will not be recording the zoom.
