Aylesbury's got talent!

Budding musicians, local bands and aspiring poets can be part of Aylesbury’s Sunday Lunch Open Mic sessions this summer.

Local performers are invited to stage their talent at The Exchange (pictured) in Aylesbury every month, starting on Sunday 1 May.

Music fans can sit back, relax and be entertained each month throughout the summer in one of the many eateries which surround the performance area. 

Willing performers do not need to pre-register, just arrive on the day, add your name to the open mic board and perform music, poetry, readings or recitals.

Sessions are open for all to perform and can be enjoyed on the first Sunday of each month from 11am-2pm until 4 September at The Exchange, Aylesbury, HP20 1US.

Aylesbury Mayor Anders Christensen said: ‘I hope these sessions will inspire and encourage local people who may have never performed in public before to step forward and do so in a relaxed, informal environment.

‘Whether you’re a solo artist, in a band, would like to read poem or an extract of a book, this is a chance to do so.’

The open mic sessions are free to be part of and are supported by Aylesbury Town Council. Electro-acoustic instruments can be used through the PA.
