The longest running open Mic in Christchurch.

We've shifted venues a few times, but Willie's open Mic has been running consistently in Christchurch for nearly 11 years.

Hosted by Local musician Willie McArthur.

The new venue for the open Mic is Sullivan's Irish Pub, with a big stage and great hospitality. Full P.A. and foldback is provided,some instruments ,guitar and bass amp, and 4 mics and 3 line inputs. Also a digital drum kit and Roland RD100 keyboard can be provided by request.

Any questions just message the page or text on 02102385551 or email williemcarthurmusic@yahoo.com.

This is a live music open Mic, but we are open to comedy, poetry gets. It's an open Mic more than a jam night, but we encourage collaborations between contributors.

Younger performers are welcome. The venue has a supervised licence, so a parent or official guardian must be present.
