This Must Be The Place are the team behind Sundown Arts, an arts organisation famed for showcasing spoken word. Previous artists featured at Sundown included John Hegley, Kate Tempest, Josie Long, Ed Harcourt, Frank Sidebottom, Jim Bob, Luke Wright, Pictish Trail, Isy Suttie, Sofie Hagen, the list goes on! They were also known for their popular spoken word open mic nights. In 2018 Sundown morphed into This Must Be The Place.
This Must Be The Place promises to give the same diversity and creative ethos; concentrating on the “passion behind the ideas”.
This Must Be The Place are excited to work with Essex Writers’ House in 2020, a chance to celebrate local writers coming together. It’s the perfect time to welcome back the team’s well-loved spoken word open mic event.
Whether you’re a known performer or you’d just like to have a go at sharing your writing with us, ALL are welcome, our audiences are warm and friendly and encouraging!
Sign up on the night with either Jo or Ray, we’ll then call your name at random, 10 mins max on the floor (so everyone gets a chance to read).
