We are pleased to announce our second Mind Over Matter event, ‘Beat Addiction’ on Sunday 22nd October at The Bedford, in Balham. Join us for an evening of Spoken Word, Hip Hop and Open Mic to help break down stigma around addiction and mental health.

At every Mind Over Matter event we shine a spotlight on a particular mental health organisation to raise awareness for their work. This event is no exception with represetatives from ‘Broadway Lodge, a treatment centre for addiction, attending to talk about their organisation. https://www.broadwaylodge.org.uk/

We also provide a platform in the form of an Open Mic for anyone who wishes to share their work, whether that may be a poem, song or story. Everyone is welcome. If you have been wanting to share your work, no matter the level you may be at, this is a safe environment and the perfect place for you to do so. Sign up on arrival (from 6pm) to guarantee your spot.

We have an amazing line up of artists from the worlds of both Spoken Word and Hip Hop including Jaz Kahina, Holly Flo Lightly, Poetcurious, Feven Em, Sophie Macaroni and our Headline act ‘Delusionists’ who are back after a lengthy break and will be performing all new material from their forthcoming album.
