BUDDING performers are getting the chance to air their material at a new open mic night in Beccles.
The Monday night event started at The King's Head two weeks ago and has so far attracted a wide range of talented performers.
Slots are available to anyone who wants to perform, and acts have included acoustic guitarists, violinists and poetry reading.
Stuart Janes, manager at the pub, who is running the night with food and beverage staff member Ian Williams, said: “There's an awful lot of talent in the area. I wanted people to have an opportunity to play in front of an audience. It's open to anyone who's got the confidence or half the confidence to perform.”
