Westbury Sessions

Short url: 


OH SH!T NEW OPEN MIC JUST DROPPED 🥵 Come find us upstairs at the UK’s oldest anarchist bookshop Freedom Bookshop in the Decentre space every first Tuesday of the month, starting February 1st.

We gravitate towards spoken word and poetry but other forms are welcome too! Bonus points for social & political content 💯

While the capacity is limited due to COVID you MUST DM the Westbury Sessions page to reserve your space.

A negative test is required for entry. If you can’t get hold of LFTs due to shortages, a vaccination pass is acceptable.

Masks are required inside whilst not drinking or performing (unless exempt).

🚨 Please message in advance about wheelchair access - we’re currently scouting a second, more accessible venue for additional monthly open mics🚨

Alt text: An illustration of a vending machine with little creatures inside it, as well as a can of drink with the words ‘revolution’ and ‘revolting’ wrapped around it. The words ‘OPEN MIC’ and ‘BYOB’ are placed in the corners in star shaped bubbles. The vending machine buttons / screen area on the left reads ‘7:30PM / & every first Tuesday of the month / Freedom Press Bookshop - upstairs in the Decentre Space - 84b Angel Alley / DM us for wheelchair access’. The bottom of the poster reads ‘PUSH FOR… WESTBURY SESSIONS’.
