About the show

To celebrate Black History Month, London’s leading poetry + Hip Hop open mic night Pen-Ting present a night of visionary poetry and rap, inviting featured artists and open mic’ers alike to look forward and share ideas of what our Black Futures will be, and to better understand what came before.  

The freshest open mic night in London comes to Theatre Peckham, following their successful events with our friends at the Bush Theatre. We’re gassed to be able to platform these incredible poets and musicians for the first South London edition of Pen-Ting’s poetry night, live from our Theatre. Join them as they bring you the waviest of poetry waves and vibes higher than London rent, with a night that is committed to changing the narrative and platforming inclusive and challenging voices. It’s Hip Hop, politics, poetry and speaking truth to power. Good vibes included. If you’d like to jump on the mic, use code PENTING when booking your ticket.

OPEN MIC – We have 12 open mic tickets available in advance, and if you don’t get a slot ahead of time, arrive at 7:00 to sign up on the door. 3mins (6 spots available OTD, plus reserves) Please email if you’d like to jump on the mic. 

Post Show Jam – The Pen-Ting Jam is a space for anyone to spit, sing, or speak their piece over a selection of beats from our special guest DJs. Come join in the vibes by jumping on the mic or standing back and soaking up the creative conversations!
