My Mouth Your Ear – This Sunday

My Mouth Your Ear

This Sunday (the 13th, for those who’ve gotten a bit behind on their advent calendars!) sees the first outing of My Mouth Your Ear. Taking place at the Lift & Hoist Company, Camberwell, this queer spoken word event will be full of festive fun (in the form of cake and mulled wine) and plenty of performers and writers ’sharing stories, poetry, performances, raps, rants, zine articles, blogs, fact, fiction and generally anything you can use your mouth and a mic for.’

The event will go on from 3pm to 8pm (the last performer is estimated to finish at around 6.30pm) and the suggested door donation is £1-3. Bring a cushion or a rug to sit on and get a free Xmas mince pie at the door!
