Takeover 2018: Golden Tongue

Friday 3 August
From £3.00
to £9.00
All orders will be subject to a fee of £1.50 except if your tickets are free or if you are a member

Poetry and samosas—what more could you ask for? The Yoniverse are flinging open the doors to share finger-licking good samosas and heart-warming spoken word poetry. While everyone is invited to take part in the open mic, features are reserved for South Asian women.

Golden Tongue is an open mic night focused on amplifying the voices of South Asian women. It gives them a space to share their stories, and gives everyone else a place to come listen, engage, and learn. They believe in owning their narratives, in celebrating the diversity of their diaspora and identities. Most of all, they believe in being loud. 

Headliners Haleemah and Rupinder Kaur will be gracing the stage, along with Amani Saeed, Shagufta Iqbal, Shareefa Energy, Sophia Thakur, Afshan D’Souza Lodhi, and eight open mic slots up for grabs. A henna artist will be on-hand (geddit?) for all of your shaadi needs. Feel free to stick around at the end for a little boogie to our expertly curated music selection and party-sharty til late.
