A popular Bradford open mic poetry night is returning at a new venue. Talking in Tongues will be running every first Wednesday of the month, beginning on Wednesday 2 March, in the Exchange Bar, Market Street, in Bradford’s city centre. The open mic slots will be five minutes, and it will run from 7-9 pm. Those wishing to sign up to the open mic should email organiser Barbara Howerska at

Barbara explained that the night’s previous venue closed permanently during lockdown. She said: “It was lots of fun and had a really good vibe and we all hope to return to those happy nights.”

We've done this one in August 2019 I am sure it was and really enjoyed it (Amanda my wife is originally from Bradford). Was a really good event. Hope to get down there later in the year 😀
