Spend a sunny afternoon in the heart of Cape Town’s creative district, the eclectic suburb of Woodstock, where spoken words fill the air as rhythmically as a live music performance. Third House Poetry is back with another vibey Open Mic Poetry event this Saturday.

Discover some of the poetry scene’s finest local talents hidden within the Mother City as they pour their hearts out in front of friends, family and strangers.
Like all Third House Poetry events, there will be a sign up sheet at the venue for those who wish to perform. The stage is open to any and all that is willing to share. Just remember, it’s one poem per poet unless exceptionally short, in which two poems can be performed.
The beautiful thing about poetry is that with just a few lines, a metaphor or two and the right kind of tweaking, even a sea of strangers will somehow relate to the sadness, joy and all emotions in between, simply from listening to your words and your voice.
