An open mic event for those within and outwith the metal health community looking to perform or just be entertained. A friendly, inclusive evening with music and the spoken word. 

Mad Jam Open Mic has been running regular events since 2016. The open mics are run by and for the mental health and wider community by a team of volunteers, all of whom have personal experience of mental health issues themselves or as a carer.

We aim to provide a safe and supportive space for performers, audience members, and volunteers alike. Refreshments are provided as is a 50p raffle with some great prizes.

To book a slot at the open mic contact Ralph Turner at

Come as an audience member and/or performer (or both!).
