Crosswords Spoken Word Open Mic, Malt Cross
7:30pm (for an 8pm start)
Crosswords is a fab little spoken word open mic night that takes place in the caves underneath the Malt Cross Pub on St James’ Street. There are plenty of open mic slots and a featured poet every month! In June, our headliner is the fantastic Casey Bailey!
Casey is a poet, author, writer, spoken word performer, rapper, song writer and a secondary school senior leader from Birmingham. He’s performed at multiple TEDx Events, and his first short collection of poetry ‘Waiting at Bloomsbury Park’ was published in July 2017. In the past, he’s been described as a ‘lyrical and literal poet, a conscious Hip Hop artist and a thoughtful and reflective writer’.
Arrive at Crosswords from 7:30pm on the night to book your short open mic slot. We like poetry, prose, storytelling, a cappella singing, and monologues! Or you can just come along to listen – everyone’s welcome! Entry is £2 per person and refreshments are available.

NB: there are over forty steps down to the caves, some of which are uneven and steep.
