Poetry & Music at the Ram Jam Club

Rhythm & Muse features guest poets, bands and singer-songwriters and opens up the stage for open mic – book five-minute floorspots in advance via Alison Hill – alison-hill@blueyonder.co.uk. Each month offers a different mix of creative styles and new voices are always welcome.

 A gem of a venue, a lovely audience, and some great talent. I enjoyed myself immensely! Steve Pottinger

R&M was launched at The Lion pub in Teddington in 2007 and has hosted a wide range of poets and musicians and seen many new voices at the open mic. We work in partnership with Kingston Writing School and ran two joint festivals in 2011 and 2012. We have also staged events at Kingston Library, the Mary Wallace Theatre, the cornerHOUSE, the Landmark Arts Centre and the Rose Theatre.

 It was good to be back at the Ram Jam, another great evening with Rhythm & Muse.  John Grant

R&M is not-for-profit and organised and run on a voluntary basis – new volunteers always welcome.

Email Alison Hill for more information about Rhythm & Muse events, enquire about guest performances, book an open mic spot or to find out more about volunteering - alison-hill@blueyonder.co.uk

We look forward to seeing you at the Ram Jam!

I just wanted to say a big thank you for a wonderful evening last week – what a wonderful array of performers! Jenny Messer
