Festive Open Mic, 20th December – LOOK UK

LOOK UK's Festive Open Mic 20th December Sunday 4 - 6 pm

LOOK UK’s Festive Open Mic, 20th December

Sunday, 4 pm – 6 pm

Following the enormous success of our Summer Virtual Open Mic, we are holding LOOK’s Festive Open Mic this December!

All musical abilities, soloists, duets, bands and family groups are welcome! Let’s raise the roof – and our spirits – by coming together through music.

The online concert will take pace via Zoom and is an opportunity for us to celebrate our incredibly talented and diverse community, whilst raising much-needed funds for LOOK.

Our fortnightly Online Music Forum sessions are a great lead-in to this event, offering expert tutelage from our wonderful mentor and talented musician, Rupert, plus an opportunity to discuss ideas, try out new skills and – most importantly – have great fun with like-minded people!

If you don’t fancy performing, come along and watch – our audience in summer was blown away by the talent of our community, and the event raised £300 for our charity!!

“Sounding awesome this could be on 6 music or The Pyramid at Glasto!”

Tickets cost just £5 per household.

Performers – please contact Elin on events@look-uk.org for more info, or join our Music Forums, every other Wednesday.
