FREE FOR ALL…MEGAVERSE @ THE FULL MOON JAN 03 2016

After you have recovered from the madness of New Years Eve, why not have a free night of poetry and verse with Megaverse at The Full Moon, Womanby Street, Cardiff, this coming Sunday, 7pm till Late?

Spot lit microphone and stand on an empty stage

MEGAVERSE is hosted by Will Ford, who will drop, throw and sling various pieces of his into the proceedings featuring the usual Megaverse eclectic mix of voices and styles, from local performers and those from further afield.

The serious and the silly and the surreal and the sung, all kinds of spoken word will be coming at you if you head for The Full Moon, free entry, free expression! Free Drinks? Sorry, no. Drinks cost, but the entertainment is FREEEEEE!!!  Come one, come all! COME||||||

See below for pics from some of the six previous MEGAVERSE events….

JUKE 15 December 2015

If you have words to share, or like a good mix of word performance, get in the door!

JUKE

The second JUKE is coming up soon and again we have a great line-up. Both performed in the launch and encapsulated what JUKE is all about.

With Christmas nipping at our heels, it’d great to have some festive writing and performances; maybe you could talk about family and how this winter holiday reveals the bright sparks in all of us. Or perhaps you could do a Scrooge/Grinch and smash down the metaphorical fairy lights with a bah humbug. Or you could just wear something seasonal like a santa hat, Christmas jumper or elf shoes. I myself am thinking about putting some holly berry or mistletoe on my top hat, maybe have a tinsel scarf. Or you could do none of these things and come in an anorak. Whatever you feel. The writing doesn’t have to be themed, people can perform what they like. Open micers get 5 minutes to share…
