Coming up

The Virtual Hook Open Mic Night

At the Lakeside Theatre, we are working to ensure we can still connect with students even while our doors need to remain closed for the time being.

Our favourite weekly event at Lakeside is definitely the Hook Open Mic night, usually hosted in the Lakeside Cafe on a Friday evening.

In order to continue this tradition, we have moved the Hook online, with a weekly two-hour live stream on our Youtube channel.

In order to join our hosts on the live stream and perform your hidden talent, you can simply let us know in the chat of the stream and we will give you a zoom link to connect to.

If you do not want to perform live or if you can’t be with us on the night, you can send us a video of your performance, which we can play during the live show and everyone can still enjoy seeing that you have created.

We look forward to welcoming you to our virtual open mic night and see the talents there are here at Essex.
