Take the Stage

We run a range of platforms for writers to share their work with audiences and strut their stuff.

From open mics to rappers and poets, to historical talks and cabaret events, we are sure to have something to take your fancy.

Got what it takes? Drop us a line, we’re always keen to showcase new and emerging writers. Email info@writingourlegacy.org.uk with a piece of writing that you’d like to share.
