Raise the Bar's ’Spotlight’ events have an extended poetry open mic aiming to champion, nurture and platform local artists putting the spotlight on Bath and the South West's outstanding emerging talent pool, providing a relaxed and welcoming environment for newbies, veterans and anybody in between to perform their work in a safe space. It’s a perfect opportunity to perform to a warm and intimate audience at the lovely Komedia Arts Cafe in the centre of Bath, or to just sit back and watch some great poetry for a cheap price.
Tickets are available on the door only for this event. Please arrive promptly if you wish to sign up for the open mic on the door!
ARTS CAFÉ: Rowed Seating. Arrive early for the best seats. Please contact us if you have specific access requirements.

A two year Edinburgh fringe veteran, Wolsey’s incredibly unique style and candour is one that cannot be described in text alone. Truly to see him is to believe him.
“Brainy, surreal, theatrical and very, very funny.” – Melanie Branton
“His poetry balances absurdity and genius perfectly…” Beth Calverley
