Riverfront Theatre and Arts Centre later today for the Summer sessions Open Mic night and Boutique Market. Don't worry, I'm not playing ukulele in front of an unsuspecting audience, merely selling my cartoon wares on one of the market stalls. If you're in the area, please feel free to come along and say hi. I'll be selling my cartoon books, postcards, prints and maybe some other bits 'n bobs.
I went along last month as a punter and it was a great night out with live entertainment, lovely food in the cafe and a chance to mingle with a bunch of fab Newport folk. Only £1 entrance fee too - bargain!
Here's the blurb:
Open Mic Night and Boutique Market
Boutique stalls adorn the foyer from 5pm until 11pm and music will fill the air from 7pm until 11pm. All types of performers are welcome from comedians to poets and musicians and all you need to do is turn up on the night.
If you're a local creative person and would like to sell your wares, be it hand-made jewellery, bespoke fashion, vintage vinyl or something completely unusual, please get in touch to pre-book a stall.
Local DJ's can also get in touch for a DJ slot between 5pm - 7pm.
Previous stalls have included vinyl, vintage, hand-made toiletries, hand-made clothing, jewellery, accessories and cards, unusual one off gifts and more.
There will be special offers at the Café so come along, chill out, enjoy some local talent and bag yourself a boutique bargain.
