Postponed due to venue issues: watch this space for new details! :)

Young people in south west Birmingham are being invited to show off their talents at an Open Mic night – and share their ideas for activities in their communities.

The event invites young people from Frankley, Rubery, Rednal and surrounding areas to take part.

Whether you’re a singer, a rapper, a musician, a poet, a dancer, a ventriloquist, a comedian, an impressionist or something a little bit different….

Whether you’re a seasoned performer or have only previously appeared in front of your bathroom mirror…..!

You’re invited to showcase your talent in a supportive atmosphere at Balaam Wood School from 6.30pm on Friday 26th October.

The event is organised by the Longbridge Moving Forward group, a partnership of local organisations in the former Longbridge ward (now Frankley Great Park & Rubery Rednal wards), who came together to support each other on projects to improve the local community, using funding from Birmingham City Council’s Local Innovation Fund.

Longbridge Moving Forward also wants to hear what other activities young people would like to see in their area.

Gemma Cartwright, Longbridge Moving Forward, said: “The open mic night is a chance for the great talented young people of the area to showcase their talents or enjoy an evening together.

“On the evening we will be consulting with the young people to try and see what activities they would be interested in. This supports the Longbridge Moving Forward initiatives to bring the community together.”

If you want to take part, or can’t make the event and want to share your ideas, please email Longbridge Moving Forwards on
