About Away With Words

Away With Words is the longest running spoken word open mic night in Hull. Hosted by Mickey Higgins and Jim Higo, we currently reside at Hull’s coolest live venue – Off The Road Live Lounge, 246 Spring Bank West Hull. Our regular open mic night takes place on the third Thursday of every month and is the place where the brightest of poetic performers come to show off their many and varied talents.

We are a spoken word evening that welcomes all kinds of performance; poetry, comedy, theatre, sketches, storytelling, prose and anything else!

All of our events are free and we rely solely on the support of the local community to keep the events going.

Away With Words is about you.  It’s a place where anyone wanting to perform can do so in an informal, friendly and non-judgmental environment. It’s a place for people who want to share their work/ideas or for those who want a platform to go on and perform in other places. There is no artistic snobbery or preferential treatment and everyone is welcome and valued equally.
