Red Raw - Weekly Beginners Night


Our long-running weekly beginner’s showcase is regarded as the best open mic night in the UK. Every Monday in Edinburgh, Tuesday's in Glasgow and Wednesday's in Newcastle, catch up to ten new acts – some treading the boards for the very first time. This is where everyone starts and it’s your chance to see the stars of tomorrow today. Watch out for older hands dropping in to try out new material too.
