Words Out Loud – We Are Not Amused


Words Out Loud takes liberties with history when it returns to Babushka lounge in Ballarat on Thursday, June 15, 7-9pm, for its next session of spoken word – with a right royal twist.

Writers, readers, poets — all word lovin’ folks with a hankering to share the love are invited along, with five-minute open mic spots on offer. Babushka has excellent sound and backing tracks can be accommodated. You won’t find a friendlier venue.

The event has a nominal theme of ‘we are not amused‘, but as always, performers are encouraged to take the theme and run with it for their 5-minute slots — or ignore it altogether!

Entry is free, though a gold coin donation would be appreciated for this non-profit, community event.
