Decolonise the Mic: An evening of spoken word

Join us for an evening of poetry and readings, as performers are given a platform to express their own narrative.
Performances by BEMA members will be followed with an opportunity for self-defining BME’s to grab the (open) mic.
Want to get something of your chest? There’ll also be a soap box session to say whatever’s on your mind.
