Open Tree

Hidden within Ely Country Park are a few benches in a semi circle around a growing tree. This is the setting of Open Tree: an open mic without a mic, a campfire gathering without a campfire (safety regulations are a must!) but an evening spent outdoors, listening to and offering poems, songs and everything else you might have been working on.

Maybe you would like to draw the audience as the sun goes down? Or perhaps you would just like to immerse yourself in Ely’s wonderfully creative arts scene by lending a supportive ear. Whatever your motivation, come and join us for an evening like no others hosted by local performer Raphaëlle Collou. The tree will be decorated, an acoustic guitar and some percussion instruments will be available to use. Feel free to bring along whatever else you might need! If you could let us know you are planning on sharing some of your work, that would be wonderful but no one will be turn away on the night. In fact, improvisation is more than encouraged! So bring a blanket and an alcohol-free drink and enjoy!
