POETRY, hip hop, acoustic, performing music, singing or the spoken word – all talents are all welcome at the Youth Open Mic Night.

Open to those aged from 14 to 21, anyone who would like to take part was welcome, South Alive community development co-ordinator Nikki Aaron said.

“Young people in the community had been talking about a talent show for a while,” Ms Aaron said, so now was the opportunity to take part.

The talent night had been suggested a number of times over the past few years, so South Alive volunteer Peter Saba had taken up the challenge to organise one, she said.

Being held at the Pacific Island Advisory and Cultural Trust on 135 Bowmont St, doors will open at 6.30pm on Friday, October 26.

Ms Aaron said the organisers were hoping from this inaugural event that “the young people might want to do their own show”.

“We [South Alive] are keen to support them to do it again.”

Although the talent show was mainly focused at younger people, everyone was welcome to be a part of the audience.

Those who want to perform can either preregister or simply turn up on the night, Ms Aaron said.

For more information or to register, phone or text Peter Saba on 0274 045 882.
