BIRMINGHAM: Sunday Xpress

The Sunday Xpress @ The Adam and Eve, Bradford Street in Digbeth, Birmingham.

Wrote Under Publishing are pleased to announce that The Sunday Xpress Open Mic is still growing strong and now relocated to the Adam and Eve pub in Digbeth. This new location boasts more seats, excellent sound and a cleaner yet still homely and friendly atmosphere. Now on every third Sunday of the month (dates below) the show usually starts around half 3 or 4pm and continues til late, where it changes into an open jam organised by Tony from Loop Promotions.

The Sunday Xpress is still compered by Big Brendan Higgins, and still has the regular faces offering their wares, from poetry from Jimmy Fantastik, Louis Campbell, Paul Rafferty Sam Hunt and Marcus Zodiac to impressive monologues from Frankie Lassut, Louise Stokes and Bom and his Magic Drumstick, and now impressive storytelling from Mat Joiner and Pollie Gilbert. The Sunday Xpress prides itself on its ability to change and move with the times (!) as well as a dazzling array of singer/songwriters we now have impressive fusions of poetry and tapes from Lizzy Piffany and regular staccato bursts of electronic dance racket from DJ Space.

Yet with all this, The Sunday Xpress is primarily an open mic event, and its new performers and interested public that keep it going and keeps the word spread around. So if you want to spend your third Sunday of the month in a relaxed atmosphere and share your work with us, then please do!

Entry is free, there is the occasional raffle, and you also have the chance to eat the free roast potatoes that have been lovingly cooked for you.

Dates for this year are:
