October 24th - we want YOUR VOICE to support your community facilities

Sponsored Open Mic

The Beehouse is inviting all open mic fans, professional musicians,singers of any kind and genre, amateur performers, visual artists, entertainers, poets, DJs, comedians - anyone in fact who can hold the attention of an audience for 5, 10, 15, 20 or 30 minutes to a Sponsored Open Mic, to be held from October 24th over an ENTIRE WEEKEND.

The event, which we would like to receive considerable press coverage, is to be run entirely to support the Llanfyllin Dolydd Building Preservation Trust in its drive to develop the historic Llanfyllin Workhouse into a Centre for Music, Arts and Education.

Please get in touch if you want to perform- click here!
There are 196 slots available for artists to perform in what is planned to be the biggest truly community-generated event for many years. We will be looking for performers from all walks of life - including local personalities, all ages, anyone who wants to have a go and can collect some sponsorship or memberships for us.  We would like to hit record numbers of performers the week before Hallowe'en in what promises to be an atmospheric and memorable occasion.


Why?
As the Workhouse has been slowly broadening its activities to incorporate a wide range of community events and activities - Green Hub to DJ nights, gigs and themed events,  parties, dog shows,  grooming and care, the regular and free Open Mic, a wide variety of learning opportunities for gardening and beekeeping, languages tuition, music and music technology lessons, crafts and knitting, art exhibitions, and with much more on the horizon. We can only do this if we have a stable revenue to support the use and development of the building and its facilities.

Membership Discounts
A list of discounts to be made available to members, including community recording rates, will shortly be published giving yet more reason to belong to this great institution. So we would like now to increase that membership

If you would like to perform, please contact Jane or Philip Lane at the Beehouse on 01691 649062 or 01691 649044, or by contacting us online to tell us your name, address, phone number, what length slot you would like, the nature of what you would like to do, and whether you're available all weekend or only at specific times.
