12th Dec – Mega Bumper Christmas Special

We’re bringing back our merry mix of spoken word, stand-up poetry, and creative mayhem to the dark streets of Kings Cross with our Mega Bumper Hyper Massive Christmas Special:

Past winners of the Orange Crush open mic make magic with your (holiday) seasoned hosts, Stevie Tyler, Kim Pryor, Thomas Muirhead, and Chris Wolfe. And plenty of opportunities for audience involvement!

This month’s Christmas theme is there to get the creative juices flowing, but whether you bring your lyrical cheer or listening ears, the open mic is there to ring in the holidays with whatever creative spirit you bring.

Rhymes with Orange began with 5 creative people, 7am writing groups and a challenge to perform our own spoken word…that spiralled wildly out of control!

Put the date in your diary! Tickets are for sale in advance – and might sell out.

TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE – £6 : https://bookwhen.com/rhymeswithorange

And for no real reason I thought I’d stick in this stock image of christmas oranges:

September RWO saw a bumper open mic

Once again, we rocked the Star of Kings. Three great featured acts, before our biggest ever open mic with nine brave souls taking the stage.

Kim Pryor was the first featured act up with a depiction of a life in the future full of downloaded emotions. She followed that up with another in her nursery rhymes series – this time she twisted and tweaked the story of the ill-fated egg Humpty Dumpty with her usual wit and imagination.

Stevie Tyler was next up. She took us on a journey through a battle between love and passion – using Abelard and Heloise as references and metaphor. Then she teased us with a tale of her first time…getting a tattoo.

Chris Wolfe was the last of the featured performers urging us to rise up and shake off the dust of inaction before sharing that while Jesus only managed to turn water into wine – he turned his ex-girlfriend into a lesbian.

Then we saw nine people take the stage and perform their work. A huge range of really high quality stuff – from a withering Ode To My Own Face to tales of the repercussions of misspent youth, from high praise for gin in a can on public transport to a tale of a wedding from the priests point of view. A highly contested clapometer found Jason O’Dwyer (@dluxedj) to be our winner this month.

So come down next month – 24th October – to hear Jason and Geoff our winner from last month too, as well as our incredible bunch of featured performers.

September Rhymes with Orange this Wednesday

RwO is upon us. It’s that time of the month again when you come pretending to support your friends or soak up the rhymes but really you are just biding your time before you yourself take centre stage on the orange crush open mic.

Each month it has gotten bigger and better and tomorrow will be no different. We will have our orange shakers, we will have the most supportive crowd in London, we will have mind-blowing performances and of course the ever popular Orange Crush open mic.

Places for the open mic are limited and there are three spots left. You can still sign up on the night but get in touch to secure a place before they all go on londonspokenword@gmail.com


See you tomorrow!

We have a website!

This is the beginning of our journey and we are pretty thrilled you are taking it with us. This is our new website and we’d love you to take a look around.

See you at a rhymes with Orange event soon,
