August Words Out Loud

Words Out Loud is ‘breaking the ice’ at its August edition.

Wordsmiths are invited to explore the theme or simply ignore it altogether.

This is a great opportunity to road test new material, celebrate a success or share some inspiration, or simply enjoy a diverse range of spoken word — poetry, prose or storytelling; read or recited; your own work or someone else’s. Performances are limited to 5 minutes each. Sign up on the night.

Date: Thursday August 15

Time: Doors open about 6.30pm, words from 7pm

Venue: The Printers Room, in the basement of Sebastiaans at the corner of Mair and Lydiard streets. Enter from Mair. Note: the venue is stair-free. Take in the air in the beer garden. Enjoy the show from couches, the tables or a seat by the bar.

Eat and drink: The full menu is available, as well as a $20 two-course meal deal, with bar service.

Cost: Free, with a gold coin donation appreciated.

Keep in touch: at or join our mailing list.

      Hi Chris!
      The Bunch of Grapes event starts at 7pm (people are usually there from 6pm if they want to eat before).

      Please note though that Words Out Loud isn’t held at the Bunch of Grapes, the BoG event is the monthly members’ night.
