Mark Twain said, ‘Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.’ We encounter fear in all different forms. What is it about facing an audience, standing up on stage, behind a mic that triggers a sense of fear in most people? To be honest, I don’t know. But what I do know is that open mic nights are definitely great opportunities to gather courage, ‘master’ our fears and have a lot of fun at the same time!
At the Winter Festival’s Open Mic Night you will get to hear some great performers, have the chance to share your talent with the community, and help two great charities whilst having a wonderful time! You can even take a solo slot in support of the charities. Don’t forget to invite your friends and family!
