It’s been a year. One whole earth year since Rhymes with Orange set up shop and started disseminating our lyrical service to the masses. To celebrate this mighty achievement, we are throwing a birthday party! It’ll be the usual Rhymes with Orange nonsense but with much more orange paraphernalia. We promise the following – Bunting (standard party behaviour), cake (standard party bahviour), FREE ORANGES (non-standard (exceptionally kind) behaviour) and more poetry than you can shake a lyrical stick at.
The open mic will be a bumper one, not least because among the prizes is an ORANGE SPACEHOPPER (cue audience *ooooooooo*s). We are excited to get a load of the open micers back that have graced our stage over the last year. They are the ones that have inspired us, kept us going and are the reason we are here – to help you get from page to stage.
So come to the night and help us celebrate – we are celebrating you, our audience, our faithful supporters, our orange shaker-enthusiasts, our poets, our comedians, our brave stage-goers, our limerick-virgins and limericks-pros, our Rhymes with Orange family!
