Open mic dreamy nights at the Marlborough

This is where people make music and magic.  Musicians, singers, storytellers, songwriters, poets and exhibitionsts alike, please join us for a night of open mic – give us all you have, amaze us, we want to watch, listen and be taken far away.

We will reward you with encouragement, a warm atmosphere, a great audience, and a lot of gratitude for making some magic with us.

The Marlborough open mic has become the place to see some truly creative, imaginative and talented unusual performers – so if you don’t play, come treat yourself to a night of free music, beautiful people, and be transported into a different soundscape.

Come early to guarantee a performance slot and to make sure you don’t miss any of the fun!
