~When you see a busker or a street performer in Preston city centre do you appreciate their talents as a musician or actor or do you mock and ridicule them assuming they’ll never progress and they’re destined for a life of poverty?

Ten years later and you’re going to the local open mic night. You don’t have any preconceptions but you’re slightly taken aback that the same individuals you humiliated a decade ago are performing and their evolution from small time singer -songwriter to accomplished entertainer is something you can’t quite believe.

There are many more people like the example I gave that are still grafting hard in the music world but not for riches or fame it’s for the pleasure in performing that makes them so unique and likeable to the interested public.

The next Open Mic night is taking place at The Continental on Thursday October 3rd 2019 from 8.30pm. Please make your way to the Snug area on the right as you enter the pub. It’s free entry and all are welcome. If you’re interested in performing either music, poetry or some comedy please arrive earlier and speak to hosts James and Typhaine so they can get your name down to avoid disapointment.

The following two sessions are taking place to conclude the year :-

  • 7th November
  • 5th December

Each open mic night takes place on the first Thursday of every month.

Come along and sample some of the finest underground talent that Preston has to offer:-
