ALT B: Pen-Ting: West

Book tickets
18 Aug to 08 Dec

The freshest open mic night in London returns to the Bush Theatre.

Join us as Pen-Ting brings you the waviest of poetry waves, bars upon bars, and vibes higher than London rent, wrapped in a night that is committed to redefining narratives by platforming Black and marginalised voices.

It’s Hip Hop, politics, poetry and speaking truth to power. Good vibes included.

This event has both seated and standing options. Limited open mic slots available OTD. Sign-up from 7pm sharp.
