"Listening To Youth" Spotlight project announced

John Freeman
Lancaster’s long-running monthly literary cabaret, ‘Spotlight’ are organising a youth project in conjunction with Lancaster City Council and Arts Council England to give young people a big chance to perform their work on stage.

If you’re aged 14 - 21 then you could join Spotlight’s free to participate ‘Listening To Youth’ project, which launches with an Open Mic ‘Try-Out’ Performance at The Gregson, Lancaster on Monday 23rd January.

If you’ve never performed your work in public but would like to give it a try, or if you’ve done an Open Mic before but have got a new poem, story, sketch, song, or some comedy material - as long as it’s your own work - the organisers, Ron Baker and Sarah Fiske, want to hear from you.

Following on from the Gregson Open Mic Try-Out event, participants will be invited to take part in free writing development workshops and a free performance / rehearsal workshop leading to an opportunity to perform at a Spotlight ‘Listening To Youth’ Special at The Storey on Friday 17t February .

• The Open Mic ‘Try-Out’ Performance is at The Gregson, Lancaster on Monday 23rd January. Doors Open 6pm and it’s free admission. To sign up for a three minute spot at the Gregson launch event email:, or call 01524 381642
