Red Raw - Weekly Beginners Night

Information

Our long-running weekly beginner’s showcase is regarded as the best open mic night in the UK. Every Monday in Edinburgh, Tuesday's in Glasgow and Wednesday's in Newcastle, catch up to ten new acts – some treading the boards for the very first time. This is where everyone starts and it’s your chance to see the stars of tomorrow today. Watch out for older hands dropping in to try out new material too.

If you're interested in performing at red raw please fill in the application form on this page.

Register to perform at Red Raw

Under 18?

Our license affects performers under 18’s years of age please make sure you select the correct option.

Please Note

Red Raw is mainly for new and upcoming local acts and for semi/professional acts across the UK who are new to our clubs - so they can be seen by us with a view to progression. If you are a semi/professional act looking to do a trial, we ask that you only submit an application when you have at least a year’s experience.

We aim to respond to Red Rawers as quickly as we can, but there is often a long waiting list. If you submit your application more than once, or send repeated email correspondence, your application will be made invalid and your details removed from the list. Sorry it may seem militant but all our application guidelines exist to facilitate processing a huge number of applications fairly and quickly. Please be patient and we’ll be in touch as soon as we can.
