Silver Tongued Deviance is an open mic platform event hosted by spoken word artist Frank Rafferty at Void Gallery in partnership with Gasyard Development Trust (Bluebell Arts).


During these sessions, spoken word performers/singers/(acoustic) musicians are invited to come along and perform; they may choose any pieces of work from their repertoire, they can create something new which connects to themes in Void’s current exhibition, or they can perform something else entirely which simply resonates with them.


The viewing public are invited to simply attend and enjoy! There is no requirement to perform at these events.


Refreshments are also provided; visitors are invited to enjoy a glass of wine, a beer, or some tea or coffee.


Void is wheelchair accessible.




Silver Tongued Deviance is a collaboration with Gasyard Development Trust (Bluebell Arts).
